Letters to My Little One | 28 Weeks In My Belly

To my little peanut,

Did I really just write April? Your due date is approaching so fast. This week was mommy’s birthday (daddy’s was last week!). I woke up on my birthday with a ton of kicks from you. I could even see you move. It was a great birthday present and I will cherish it forever. Thank you, little one, for that nice wake up call! Daddy felt and saw you move, too. He’s so proud of how big you are getting and how strong you are getting. I was recently looking at a phone picture I took of myself when you were just 13 weeks along…my how we both have changed! But I love it so much, little one. You truly are a miracle.

My next doctor’s appointment is the glucose test. I am not looking forward to it at all. But I sure hope I pass. I am excited to once again hear your heartbeat and see how you’re doing. Since this week marks 28 weeks, we now officially only have 12 weeks left. That’s 3 months. I can’t believe how fast it’s going. I cherish the little moments we spend together on a daily basis. I know that once you get here, time will go by so quickly. That’s one of the main reasons I started photography. I wanted to be able to capture my kids and hold on to memories that way. I hope I don’t annoy you with always having the camera in your face!

Your daddy and I are (finally) going to IKEA this weekend to pick up your crib and dresser. I’m so excited! I received some baby clothes from my wonderful cousin and don’t have a good place to put them yet. Come Saturday, we will! Everything is starting to fall into place and I am so excited.

Up until this next doctor’s appointment, I was having them every 4 weeks. Now it’s going to be every 2 weeks. I really can’t believe I am already to that point in my pregnancy. I also can’t believe it’s the fourth month of the year and you come the end of the sixth month!

As I am typing this right now you are hiccuping like crazy! It’s really cute. I love that you are developing and getting bigger. I can tell you are growing. You are stronger. Your kicks are stronger. Your movements bigger. You love to move in the morning. So much that you make my stomach move and I love that so much. Your aunt gets so annoyed with you because I say you are moving and she tries to feel my stomach to feel you move and you immediately stop. It never fails. It’s so funny, you’re already driving your aunt crazy. I am just extremely happy you don’t do that to your daddy. I honestly think you like it when your daddy talks to you and touches my belly. You always squirm the most when he’s around.

Little one, you are loved. There are so many people helping your mom and dad prepare for you. I hope I never forget the love and help I have received from people already in my pregnancy.

I love you so much!

Love, mommy
