Dearest little bean,
You are such a little dancing machine these days. And it hurts! Some days I just marvel at the abnormal shapes of my belly. Dad would prefer that you play softball, but I would prefer that you play soccer with a side of dance…good thing your legs seem to be more active…
I spent all of last weekend working on your room, aside from time spent at a birthday party for our friend’s son where your name, like usual, became the topic of conversation. People just can’t stand not knowing! But we’ve kept it safe. Not for them, but for us. We just love your name so much and didn’t want anyone trying to spoil it before it’s official.
I’ve also spent a lot of days in pain…I’m trying my best to hang in there, for your sake, but your little (maybe big) bod doesn’t help the situation! You’ve really run out of room in there!
Yesterday was mama’s birthday. I got lots of fun presents from all of the ladies at work that I love and dad sent me the prettiest flowers while I was at work! He’s always so thoughtful. Then he took me to dinner where I proceeded to stuff myself silly with steak and squash pizza and he sat and felt you move while we waited for our food and was laughing at how crazy it felt from the outside. I told him ALL ABOUT how it feels for me from the inside…dinner was delicious and *mostly* good for us! Lots of organic meat and veggies. And we finished it off with an amazing blueberry dessert!
Then we spent the evening at home, while mama rested. And dad listened
to a crying spell from your emotional mom who was just feeling off and
he’s always so sweet and understanding, and wipes my tears away.
I had a doctor appointment this morning, and we talked about lots of things, including all of this pain I’ve been having, which is normal and just my pelvis shifting around, but mama’s pelvis is messed up from previous injuries and it’s really aggravating things. She also said that the amount of Toni Braxton Hicks I’m having is good, and based on how they’re moving along and making me feel, there’s a good possibility you could be here before 40 weeks…but, if the pain becomes too much, they could induce me at 39 weeks, but mama doesn’t like that “i” word, so she’ll try to be a trooper for you! But hearing all of this makes it all very real! Soon we will see your little face!
Love you tons…
