Im not going to lie, years ago when I first started trying for a baby I did intend on keeping a journal and writing to the baby each day as a momento of my pregnancy. Unfortunately that hasnt happened. Life has got in the way and I feel a bit guilty that I dont have that to share with her. I am glad I have recorded my pregnancy on the blog though as it gives us a way to look back on the experience. Tonight while sitting quietly the urge to write to my daughter took over.
I'm sitting here on the couch watching some horribly boring tv while your daddy is at work. Its ok though because all I can focus on is your kicks inside of me. Seems you must have had a nap at the same time as me and now you are well and truly awake. I'm slowly waking up, unfortunately I'm not as alert and active as you are yet. Actually that's probably a very fortunate thing as I would most likely do some major damage if I tried to move around as much as you are right now. I don't think I could manage a fly kick, let alone doing it whilst hanging upside down. You on the other-hand can do it no worries. You are already smarter than mummy. Thats my girl!
We are almost at 37 weeks now. I cant believe we made it this far. I was so convinced that you would come early the same way that mummy and Elouise did. But yet again you are proving mummy wrong and determined to stay safe inside me for a bit longer. Most other mums want pregnancy to be over by now. I'm not going to lie, it is getting quite uncomfortable, but each and every day you stay inside me is a blessing. Another day we get to spend together just the two of us. I love feeling you move around so much. Even when you poke your arm out the side of me or try to put your foot up under my ribs, although I'm thankful you only do that every other day. I love it when you get the hiccups, it is the weirdest feeling for me, but so incredibly cute. Im so grateful to have you in my life already, even though I haven't officially met you yet.
We cant wait to finally meet you soon. Daddy is so excited to be able to hold you soon. We cant wait to look into your little eyes, to hold your hands and tickle your little toes. I wonder if you will look like me or more like daddy? I wonder if daddy will cry. One thing is for sure, we will both love you as much as possible and remind you each and every day. We will do everything to protect you.
I love you so much bubba
love mummy x
