Baby in Progress – Two weeks to go!

July 31st is the due date for our firstborn child, Rikuto, and that date is getting very close now. With less than two weeks to go, I thought I’d take a video of my wife’s tummy, so you can see the baby move around for yourselves! You may have to watch it a couple of times before you notice the movement, and I couldn’t catch the best of it on video, but you should get the idea.

Mami says it hurts a little when he’s kicking, but she’s used to it now. Unfortunately, he’s most active in the middle of the night, and I took this video early in the morning when neither of us could sleep. I guess you could call it practice for the real sleepless nights ahead of us.

Be warned that one of my friends freaked out when he first saw this, so if you didn’t like the Alien movies, don’t press play!

If you like, you can find me on Twitter at @nick_ramsay. I'd love to hear from you!

  1. How exciting!

    I don’t know how I would act if I could see my child kicking in Reiko’s belly … it would be both exciting and a bit unnerving ….

    I hope little Rikuto is one of those babies that sleeps through the night just fine at 3 months. Otherwise, your years of a full night’s sleep will be behind you for a very, very long time 😛

  2. Was it Keith that thought it was freaky?

    Anyway as you can see mybloglog is turned on… Thats cool that Mami has a little baby in her belly! You should try and deliver it like Tom Green in Freddy Got Fingered.. “Give me your hand little fellow…”

  3. Ah, I remember that well. It wasn’t that long ago that Shingo and Maki were moving in their mom’s tummy. The first time I felt a little one moving was very unnerving. It soon became something I looked forward to after coming home.

    Won’t be long now.

  4. gosh!
    make sure he doesn’t turn upside down from you chasing here in there. it’s almost time for him to be with his head down.

  5. Yeah I have to admit that Nick’s friend that freaked was me!! While it is obviously a wonderful experience for mummy and daddy, I myself have never seen such a thing and really do think that while man has made and done many amazing things, nothing can compare to having a little one grow in your tummy. (Mmmm this obiously is my own opinion here !!)
    I was just saying to Nick the other day how men seem to have it so easy and women to me at least, do nearly all the work!!
    Women are truly the kings and queens rolled into one and without them, mmmm sadly but once again in my opinion, we men are nothing more than bottom feeders haa haa haa!!
    Through my job I get to see many mothers and really do have more of an appreciation of what they go through not only in giving birth, but also the major role in almost every aspect of a child’s younger years. (In my case senior years too haa haa haa!)
    I know many many fathers too play an important role and I suppose it is just what I have seen recently that makes me comment the way I am today on Nick’s site!!!
