Thank You!

Dear Baby,
  So, you know how Mommy keeps asking you to kick me so that I can finally feel you move?  Well, apparently you heard my first request & I just didn't realize it!  Yesterday, I felt you move for sure because you were very active.  It was the same movement I have felt for the past 2 weeks, but a little stronger.  I didn't realize those first feelings were you!  Mommy feels so silly not realizing that I have felt you kick for the last few weeks.  However, I am just so happy to finally know that I can feel you moving around.  I anxiously await the next movement & when you do move, I know that you are awake.  Daddy is very excited & he can't wait for you to get a little bigger so he can feel you kick too!  So, now that I know you are big enough for me to feel you move, keep on kicking away!

Dear Baby,
   Wow!  It has been a crazy few weeks over here, let me tell you!  However, Daddy & I have constantly been thinking about you as always.
   About 3 weeks ago, I was getting in the car to leave work & I fell.  I landed right on my bad knee (I have already had 2 surgeries on it).  Boy, did it hurt like crazy, but not as much as worrying if you were OK.   After talking to 20 different people, they assured me that since I didn't land on my stomach, that you were OK.  That made me feel better.
    As if the fall wasn't enough, last Saturday Daddy & I were out crib shopping for you.  We were having so much fun & then bam!  We were rear-ended in a car accident.  I was actually on the cell phone with Grandma when it happened (Daddy was driving) & was completely hysterical.  I called 911 & they sent an ambulance to take me to the emergency room.  I was so worried that you were hurt.  Luckily, the doctor was able to find your heart rate & it was beating normally...140.  I felt so much better.
    Now the countdown is on to find out if you are a boy or a girl.  The suspense is killing us over here.  I want you to know that no matter what, we will love you just the same & we are just blessed to have you.  I want to know so that we can paint your nursery & get cute bedding for you!  2 1/2 more weeks & we have our appointment to find out just what you are, better cooperate!  :)
   Last weekend Daddy & I were able to go crib shopping again & we got your crib & dresser/changing table.  It is really nice & we can't wait to bring you home.  I feel much better knowing that you now at least have a place to sleep. 
    Thursday is Thanksgiving.  You're going to love it because I am going to eat like a pig!  You have made me so hungry it is unbelievable.  You sure do eat a lot for being so small!  That's OK, anything to help you grow & be healthy.
    That's all we have to report at this time.  I just wanted to "check in" & fill you in on all the craziness that has been going on.  Hopefully, I will have some more news to report soon.  I still haven't felt you kick & wish that you would.  So again, I'm asking...please kick me really hard so I can feel you & know that you are in there & are OK.  You can sleep at night with Mommy & kick away during the day!  We love you sweetheart & can't wait to meet you!

16 Weeks

Dear Baby,
    I know it has been awhile since I have written to you, but that doesn't mean we aren't thinking about you!  In fact, you are all Daddy & I talk about & think about!  It has just been extremely busy & hectic over here & I just haven't had the time to write.
    With all that being said, I am 16 weeks pregnant with you today!  I am so excited!  I should be able to feel you move at any time & just can't wait.  I'm hoping that you just give me a nice big kick so I know you are moving around & are O.K. 
    We had another ultra sound last week.  Your heart rate was 131 which is actually the lowest it has been, but the doctor said it was normal.  We think you might have been sleeping because you weren't moving around as much as last time.  However, you were measuring almost a week ahead of schedule, so you are growing like a weed!  The doctor did try to determine if you were a boy or girl, but it was too early & she couldn't make the determination.  Everything is going so well that we only 1 ultra sound left & that is at 20 weeks to make sure you are developing normally & to find out if you are a boy or girl!  We are so excited, & we just can't wait!   December 6th just can't come fast enough!
    We have our 16 week appointment next week & they will listen to your heartbeat & measure my belly.  I still don't look quite pregnant yet, but I can definitely tell my tummy is bigger & it is definitely harder.  I can't wait to finally look pregnant & have the cute little baby bump!
     We are also excited to get your room together.  The nursery is finally empty, so now we can move your furniture in.  We are waiting to know if you are a boy or girl before we buy your crib & stuff because we are going to customize the room just for you, so that is another reason we can't wait to find out your gender because Mommy wants to go shopping!  :D
   That's all we have to report for now. I hope you know how much we love you & just can't wait to meet you & see your precious little face.  So, you keep growing & continue to stay healthy & if you wouldn't mind, can you just give me a little kick?
