4 Months for Me to Grow Up!

Its now been 22 weeks and I tell you my smile has not shortened one bit but actually got bigger and bigger. (blimey 22 weeks already)

Its amazing how fast time flies by and the time is dawning upon me to grow up lol.

But I must say how cool it is. Been 2 weeks and my little wonder has started kicking,

Currently my little gem is 7.2 inches, mind boggling when I sit here and think how it is growing, how Allah creates such a beautiful being in such a place, you can sit and ponder but cannot contemplate how amazing and great Allah is.

I was reading up and my little wonder is slowly forming by the Will of Allah. From crown to rump and weighs about 10.5 ounces. The foetus is steadily gaining fat to keep warm. Growth rate is slowing down but organ systems, like digestion, are continuing to mature. A waxy film, called the vernix caseosa, is being produced by my baby’s oil glands and covers the skin to keep it supple in the amniotic fluid. Buds for permanent teeth are beginning to form- WOW!!

My wife said the day it first kicked that, “I now feel like a mother and not just someone who is pregnant.”

I must say now when I see a baby and little kids I feel such warmth in my heart. Before it was cute kid and you want to play with them, now it’s like I will be having one of them soon, one I can call my very own. That feeling that you have I have to say I cannot to explain. The first time it happened it was truly amazing.

The bump is getting bigger and bigger and so are the smiles.

Small niggling things in life no longer matter you just let them be, I have bust my knee and I am limping but trust me when I think of my growing wonder I truly forget the pain.

Oh and by the way we have had the scan and we are having a baby…..

…..Actually we have decided not to find out. We both feel we do not want to ruin the excitement when the doctor says “congratulations it’s a…..”

Its a bit like me already LAZY, the nurse tried to move it to get a better scan and it wouldn’t move- brilliant!!

So Insha-Allah (with the Will of Allah) remember us in your prayers and pray that all goes well.

Ma’as-salaam – With Peace
