A Letter to the Baby...

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

Love

Me

*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 :)

You look so so cute! It's true that getting chubby is not the funnest, but then again it's kind of nice to have a little chub and not be self conscious about it because you are supposed to get a little soft so the baby has some food when they are born! I'm excited for you to find out the gender. It was so fun when I finally new. That's when it felt the most real and I remember being so excited to meet my little baby!

Fun letter! I love your little bump, too. So cute. The second trimester was great for me, but good luck on your little requests!

Awesome letter! Look how cute you are! I have a feeling you're going to be one of those pregnant ladies who look like they're 5 months along when in all actuality they're about to pop. :)

News Alert - your hips never go all the way back in. I still have hip pains and I haven't been pregnant for 9 months.

Love the letter to the little Foley. :) And your baby bump is way to cute. You look awesome. I was cracking up at your comment to me about you and Julie dressing as twins. (or no longer dressing as twins.) I guess I know what's in store for me with Lyds and Row in a fe short years. Ah, sisters. Got to love it. :)
