Hello sweet baby,
It is hard to believe that we have less than 5 weeks until you make your appearance into the world. Your dad and I can't wait to meet you and we have been working hard on prepping your big brother for your arrival. I have even made him two books to help him get ready :) One book is full of wisdom from big brothers and sisters that he loves and the other is all about what will happen when you arrive and we have to go to the hospital. He loves his books and often asks to see you but I am thinking that he really has no idea how much his life will change when you come home. Just give him some time, he will love and protect you and be a wonderful big brother!
Despite our excitement and my new discomfort, I really need you to make sure that you continue to enjoy your cozy "underwater condo" until your 5 weeks are up :) You see, Daddy and I are not quite ready for you to make your big debut. Your brother has TWO birthday parties coming up this weekend (yes TWO) and we have so much to do to get ready for them. Your nursery is still not finished (not that you will be using it right away) and we need to continue gathering and washing all of the baby things. As for what we are going to call you....we are still struggling in that area. I think we have narrowed it down to three boys and three girl names but I am not sure....we continue to change out minds. Then on top of all of these trivial things....there is this scary thing called the H1N1 virus going around and we would like to keep you from getting exposed to that during its supposed height.
So what do you think baby....can you give us the next 4 1/2 weeks to get ready??? We will see you tomorrow at our ultrasound. We can't wait to see you but we are a little nervous about having to have the ultrasound. You see they say I am measuring small for the number of weeks that I am and want to make sure that everything is okay with you. We pray that it is!
Thanks little love bug :) We will see you soon (but not too soon, right?)!
Update from September 22nd:
We had our ultrasound today and all looks good. The heartbeat was strong, the fluid levels were great and the the blood flow was good. The baby is just on the small side (25th percentile) but that is AOKAY with me :) The two scenarios are that the baby will be around 6.5 lbs or will be born a week later than we think (Halloween) and will be around the same size as Z. We will just have to wait and see. I cried again today seeing its little face and we even got to watch it swallow....too cute!
