To my little peanut,
This is crazy. I just wrote May. The next month is your due date month! Daddy and I are super busy getting ready for you to come. We’re preparing for your beautiful birth. We’re preparing for you mentally. All you need to know is that we will be as prepared as we can be when you get here. This morning, daddy and I snuggled you. It was the first time since I’ve been pregnant with you that I really felt like a family. You and daddy are my adorable little family and I am so happy. Daddy’s excited, too. He hugs my stomach and talks to you. It melts my heart!
I haven’t had much physical change, besides you growing and pushing my stomach out more. The main thing is having some hip discomforts. My midwife told me I now needed to sit down when I put my pants on. Take the steps one at a time (that’s more of workout than the normal way to walk up steps!). After taking these precautions, my hips are feeling much better. I’m thankful for a midwife who knows what she is talking about and listens to my needs.
I am excited this week for my next doctor’s appointment. I love listening to your heart beat. It’s so perfect. My midwife always says you’re one happy little baby. I sure like to think you’re happy and smiley just like your daddy! I can’t wait to see what you will be like. Will you smile all the time? Will you have hair? What will your nose look like? Your eyes? Will you have dark hair? Ahh! I just can’t wait to meet you!
My baby app tells me that I will gain about 1 pound from now until you get here, and most of that will go to you! Which means you are growing! And fast! But it makes me so happy. I am so amazed at what my body has done. My body has created a miracle and continues to help it grow. Even after birth, I’ll help you grow. It’s incredible. Motherhood is beautiful and I’m so happy you are my child. I’m so excited to meet you, and so is daddy! We only have about two months left, little one. And you are doing great. Mommy is doing great, too! We still have leaps to jump over together, but soon enough (in just four short bi weekly updates) you’ll be here. I’m so proud of how you are growing and I’m proud to be your mommy.
I love you so much!
