Dear Baby (without a name and known Gender..that we know anyway),
We are soo excited to meet you and to know if you are a boy or a girl. Thanks for being kind to me and not making me throw up after every meal that I eat, and feel sick all of the time. I especially thank you for allowing me to brush my teeth. There have been a few close calls and the gag reflex is not as strong as it used to be, but no one wants stinky breath and I can proudly say that even though the time actually spent brushing has decreased, I have not missed a morning or night. Thanks for giving me my energy back and being able to exercise again. I really appreciate your kindness. Now, if I could PLEASE make a few requests, I would be even more grateful
1. I went to put on a pair of my favorite capris on Sunday (or, Scott's favorite) and I could hardly zip them up and when they were all zipped up (after much effort and strain on my part), all parts of my body were overhanging. I am PERFECTLY fine and even excited I might add, to have a growing belly, BUT, is it really necessary to make my hips widen even more? I promise, they are wide enough for you to get through...PROMISE. And the butt and thighs are ok to stay the same as well. I have noticed a little bit of growth in those regions as well.
2. Im so happy that you are letting me run again. It brings me so much strength and energy. BUT, I must say, you do rest quite nicely on my bladder. Even though I do not need to go to the bathroom, as soon as I start running, the urge to "go" comes on strong. If you could lean to the side a little more or something when I run, I would be even HAPPIER
3. And my final request is...to be kind to my lower back. For some reason, I feel like I have aged 50 years and have to favor one side when I walk/run.
That's it. Those are my requests. Other than that, I am a happy camper. I am actually ok with the fact that I cry during commericals (especially Hallmark ones), and have a little bit more sass (aka. temper) to me. I am ok with the strong cravings for Kneaders Bakery even though I can't have it and even get angry since there is not one in Florida. I am even OK to have to change sleeping positions cause it is not safe (supposedly) to sleep flat on my back.
Well, I have not slept well the last two nights cause I am so anxious to know what you are...please cooperate and don't be shy. Please let the doctors see your "goods" so we can start planning for your arrival and even better, choosing a name!
Was I asking a lot in this letter? I didn't think so. I can't wait to meet my son/daughter
*For those that actually finished this silly letter, I really am grateful for everything about pregnancy and was MOSTLY kidding about all of the requests :)
