Hello In There


Baby, in there. 

I am one day shy from being 17 weeks pregnant.  I have not felt that much anticipated 1st movement of yours yet.  You are taking your sweet time, I guess and I will wait. 

Your brother, first said hello to me at 15 weeks.  Your sister, at an early 12 weeks.  When will you say hi?

I just want to feel you and to know you are ok in there.

At the end of my (or our) 18th week we will have a level two ultrasound to check us out.   If I don't hear from you by then, at least I will be able to see you soon. 

I am most anxious to see if you are healthy and developing as you should be.   I pray that you are.  We are also going to find out if you are a boy or a girl.  We didn't find out with your brother or sister but with you I can't wait to find out.

So, please know that I would love a little tap from you soon to let me know you are saying hello.  And remember....I love you already.



  1. With Violet, my 4th kiddo (now 2 years old), I remember being hyper anxious about feeling her flutter. Like you, my other babies made themselves known early on. I remember giving myself the greatest migraine in the 2 weeks prior to our ultrasound with Violet because I was certain (despite her strong heartbeat)that there was something wrong with her. But a few days before our ultrasound (at 18weeks), I felt the unmistakable wallop of little limbs. And despite all of my obsessing over everything that could possibly go wrong during the ultrasound- she was perfectly fine. I know that you have different concerns, for different reasons. Hang in there, mama.

    1. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your story with me. I will just have to be patient.

  2. I think that you've just got a very chill little guy or gal growing in there. You'll feel that tap tap tap, soon I'm sure. :) xo

    1. I am sure I will time. This one certainly has his or her own agenda! :)
