Oh, I know you're there.

You're making your point today, little one.  I feel like you're trying to bust out already and while I admire your enthusiasm my uterus doesn't.  In fact it kind of feels like you threw a ton of extra fluid in there to literally try to make mommy explode, and I really don't feel like it.  Though maybe you're trying to escape due to all the added pressure of your brother constantly jumping on you, I know that would do it for me.

I love you and can't wait to meet you, but you do need to stay put for a few months longer at the least so please just make yourself at home.

Plus, that big brother is rambunctious and you'll need all the rest you can get before you meet him.

As always, love you,

19 Weeks

Well, we had our appointment yesterday little beluga, and you cooperated!  You've been making me nervous because I haven't really been feeling you lately and I was starting to feel contractions (probably braxton hicks) so they bumped our appointment up a week and we actually got a good listen to your heartbeat for once (coming in at a steady 146 with no defects heard, yay!).  Looks like you're already getting the star treatment!  You doc and I have decided that you are just going to be a difficult little beluga who has to do things your own way, your big brother was so easy, never gave me any problems until the actual birth, so I guess really he made up for his lack of trouble inutero.  With that being said, will you make this c-section easy on mommy?  I'm actually quite scared because of everything that went down last time so if the recovery is even half as hard as it was last time I'll be quite alright with that.

We have your anatomy scan set up for December 6th, 5 whole weeks away.  I could set it up anytime from Thanksgiving week on, but I'm good with that.  Daddy really wants to know if you're a boy or a girl, I just want to make sure you're healthy and happy.

Just stay cooking a little while longer, baby.  Once we hit the 24 week mark I will breathe another tiny sigh of relief, so lets take it one step at a time.

Mommy, daddy, and big brother love you!
