Only v newly preg so no actual bump yet but DS (2 1/2) bouncing, climbing, trampling, kicking and generally being a normal active toddler all over my tummy - is this something to worry about / try to stop? Don't want to make him feel resentful of new arrival already - sure there'll be enough of that later down the line!
Mmm, this was the point that I had to tell ds (2.3 at the time) that he couldn't bounce on me because I was growing a baby (showed him the scan photo) and we didn't want to hurt it but that he could have as many cuddles as he liked, in a 'why not come and have a story and a cuddle instead' way.
He's intrigued now that my belly is getting bigger and that he was once a baby who grew in the same way. He loves telling me what a big boy he is now, 'not a baby any more mummy' .
Ta all. I don't think we will tell him yet what's in mummy's tummy as he will then doubtless go round shouting it out to all and sundry, and we're not at stage of telling people other than family yet (v early days as I say) - so like suggestion of "sore tummy" excuse at least for a while.
