You and I have accomplished a full 37 weeks with you in utero!!! There were many days over the past 2 years that I doubted that I could ever be in the wonderful situation I am in now. Looking back over it all, I would do it a million times again in order to have you in my belly. My love for you is unlike anything I have ever experienced and I truly did not know that I could love someone so much without ever having laid eyes on you. (Except on ultrasound.) I would do anything to keep you safe and happy, and I am so in love with you already.
We're getting rather huge these days even though I still feel good. I'm a little fearful that you're setting records in there with the way you're growing! You still kick and wiggle and roll around, and it still makes me happier than anything in this world. I just want the rest of the world to stop when you move, so I can fully concentrate on it without distraction. Sometimes I just want to keep you in there forever so I can always be with you and feel that you are safe and comfortable.
The family is REALLY anxious for you to get here, and people are starting to suggest that I do ridiculous things to induce labor, such as drink castor oil. We really don't want a big nasty case of diarrhea at this point, so I'm going to pass and let you come when you're ready. And to be honest, I'm in no rush to evict you. You've been an amazing "roommate" and I will miss having you so close. Of course, I can't even imagine how incredible it will be to hold you and kiss you!
Let's take a look at what you've done to your momma's belly this week:
I love this picture because my belly is humongous!!!! You were really poking yourself out there for this one. :)
Your arrival could be anyday now and we are beyond ecstatic about it. It's all I think about all the time, and I get teary-eyed just thinking about meeting you. You have so many people who are going to love you so incredibly much, and have been waiting for so long for you to come into our lives. Thanks for being such a good, little fetus and thanks in advance for sleeping through the night, never throwing temper-tantrums, and limiting your pooping to convenient times and places. :)
