It’s with great joy that I’m able to announce I’m expecting a child, due in June.
(1st ultrasound picture – my baby was exactly 15 weeks and 1 day old, weighing 217 grams)
I believe a woman becomes a mother when she finds out she’s pregnant. In all honesty though it took me quite a while to embrace motherhood, to warmly welcome and simply bond with my unborn baby.
I want to dedicate this post to the little flower growing in the garden of my womb.
Knowing that you live inside me is surreal. Sometimes I feel your movements, usually they’re slightly to the left. You started kicking when you were only 16 weeks old, since then I never feel alone or lonely anymore. I long for those kicks and flutters, they put a smile on my face and reassure me that you’re still here. I wonder if you’re aware of my presence and if it makes you smile too when I rub my belly in response to your movements.
You’re 25 weeks along today, it’s amazing that in this day and age, with technological advancement, you’re considered viable! If you were out of my womb, this very moment, you would survive! Absolutely amazing, right?
You can work out sounds now. Guess what? You’re the first person who has ever heard my heartbeat from inside my body, again – AMAZING!
I desperately want you to be familiar with my voice, but I find it really awkward talking to you haha! I’ve tried severally, I’m sorry, forgive me, I end up feeling like a crazy person when I do. Maybe it’s just me, it’s difficult to stare down at my bump and speak to it. I think I’ll stick to singing nursery rhymes to you and reading bedtime stories I hope to reread to you when you’ll be an infant/toddler.
I’ve noticed you like classical music, Mozart rocks!!! I like classical music too, It’s very calming. I’ll try to play pieces for you whenever I can.
There’s no easy way to explain how much I love you already, know that I love you my baby, this kind of love I have never experienced before. Besides my life, you’re the most precious gift God has ever given me. You’re my light, you’ve changed my previous perspective of life, looking at the world now is literally a whole new dimension of sight. I can’t thank you enough for the many wonderful things you teach me, I’m eager to learn more, darkness pulls at me daily but you always pull me back to light. My baby, my heart is full of bliss for all the good that will come when you’re born.
Thank you for visiting! I hope that you, your friends and family are faring on well.
Please send love and warm thoughts to my baby.
