To my little sweetheart,
We are 14 weeks in (or there about) and I felt as though today would be the perfect day to start an official little log, more like letters to you, of our journey up until the day you arrive!
The last few weeks in particular have been filled with so much excitement and so many beautiful blessings since announcing to our family and friends that you are well and truly on your way! Finally being able to share the news paired with our last visit to the Doc has made it all the more real! You had grown so much since your 8 week scan and it was your Daddy’s first time hearing your heart beat. You should have seen the look on his face... He was SO excited that any feelings he was having about fainting quickly disappeared because he wasn’t going to miss it for the world... your Dad's not so good with hospitals you see. You were sound asleep when we began the ultrasound but within a few minutes you were awake, kicking your little legs and waving your arms showing off to anyone that would watch... it was the most magical thing I have ever seen. It was as though you knew we were watching you :) I am counting down the days to our next appointment in less than 2 weeks, longing to see how much more you have grown, hear your little heart pumping and of course to receive some more pictures of you... because I think you are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. You are approximately 8 cm long this week... amazing!
You had been quite kind to your Mummy up until yesterday. I thought I had escaped the first trimester experiencing only nausea and fatigue... but just to remind me what you had spared me the last 3 months, yesterday you decided to show Mumma what real morning sickness (or should I say afternoon sickness) is like. Thank-you my darling, note taken, so no need to remind me again... pretty please.
I have been having fun this week reading ‘baby name’ books and a book that Uncle K & Aunty J were kind enough to post all the way from Oz. It’s called ‘Up the duff’ and is completely relevant and very humorous. This picture is taken from the week 13 chapter which is pretty much how Mummy feels at the moment... well my belly hasn’t ‘popped out’ yet but my two other lovely lady lumps went ‘boing boing’ right from the beginning! I can’t wait to start showing so that the rest of the world can see how much a part of me you are already... in more ways than I can put into words.
