Baby’s little kickings


I started experiencing baby’s kicks during the early 4th month. It was subtle and felt like butterflies wings and then it started becoming stronger. At one point, the sensation was so strong it caught me by surprise!

Now that I am in my 5th month, I am less ‘surprised’. Maybe because I am used to feeling the baby kicks and moves or maybe because my tummy started expanding more so that the baby have more room to do it’s little gymnastics!

But everytime I felt that gentle kicks and tumble happening inside my stomach, I am bathed by a feeling of gratefulness and love for this little miracle. How amazing is God’s creation, subhanallah alhamdulillah.

Allah perfectly design the baby to fit snugly in the mother’s tummy, making it every moves touched and resonated from within to the mother, bringing along with it the feeling of love and tenderness towards the baby. This is how Allah prepares us to receive our children, slowly, gradually, with ‘hikmah’.

All praise is for Allah, the Perfect Planner, Perfect Designer and Ultimate Creator of all things in the heaven and the earth.




Somehow, I picked up crocheting too! There’s something about being pregnant that made me want to make stuff with my hand!

I realised somehow crocheting comes easier to me maybe because when I was young I did try to learn it from my mother who’s also very into crocheting. Maybe some of the knowledge was retained in my memory although I have never done it at all until recently.

I have been browsing projects and patterns in craft magazines and Pinterest and I couldn’t wait until when I am good enough to start making bigger and more complex items. As for now, all I have done is a couple of flowers, crochets bracelets for my nieces, and headbands.

Maybe I should do hats next..
