NOTE: I will reveal the gender of baby #2 so stay tuned :)
I can’t sleep. I’ve been thinking about you so much. Since we found out about your gender we’ve been thinking about names. We thought it was going to be easy to agree on a name, but it’s difficult to agree on one name. I hope we will.
Life is busy as usual. We, I mean your sister, you and me, are always driving up and down the streets of the city going to one place or the other. You move a lot. I feel like you are my little drummer, drumming against the walls of my belly. You tickle me and I’m away aware of your presence. You shift my belly every second.
Week 24 we were in Montreal, daddy had a conference to attend and we tagged along. It’s fun to travel like that. I’m looking forward to travel with you and your sister. I couldn’t take a better picture than the one below. I started to feel a little pain on the left side of the belly and I hope it’s nothing.
Week 25 during this week your nervous system is developing and you are enjoying your new sense of equilibrium, you know which way is up and which is down. You are also growing more hair. I like playing tapping on the belly. Your sister talks to you a lot so I wonder if her voice will be the first one that you will recognise when you are here.
Week 26, can’t believe we are already in the third trimester. I wonder where the months flew to. Well, I am getting more excited to meet you as the week passes. This week your eyelashes have grown in, and you’re getting your immune system ready for the outside world by getting antibodies from me. Also your lungs are producing surfactant, the fatty substance that coats the inside lining of the lungs’ tiny air sac, helping them to expand during breathing. And your skin has developed its colour, I wonder if you are going to be a little version of your sister, but I have to wait less than 90 days to find out.
This week we went to the midwife and we talked about your birth. When it was time to hear your heartbeat your sister was so happy to help. Unlike the very first time when she freaked out that somebody else was looking at mummy’s belly, this time she more than welcome to have the midwife hear your heartbeat, because she also knows that it’s the moment she can here her little sibling :).
Our love for you is everlasting.
