NOTE: I took on board all your requests about revealing the baby’s gender. I want to do things differently this time so I’m looking for a creative way to reveal it, so stay tuned
Time is flying by so fast. We are more than half way there and you are moving like a rollercoaster. You are my little drummer. You drum against the belly walls so much. I love that orchestra of strong butterflies. I feel like you are always awake. Just few occasions you seem to be quiet. I love you so much and having you in my womb is a blessing.
I’ve been daydreaming about you a lot. I wonder if you are going be a copy of your sister, who is a mini version of me in many ways. But sometimes I see daddy’s features and behaviour in her and that’s a quite funny vision. I wonder if you will look a lot like daddy in both character and features.
19-09, before I fell asleep I looked at your picture in my womb. Something tells me you are going to look a lot like daddy. Your little nose, your little mouth… but then again that’s how I thought about your sister and she turn to look lot like me. And I am happy for that because she is such a beauty and I know you are going to be another beauty in your own right.
Week 21 you’ve broken the one pound mark. You are making sense of the world through your sense of touch. You don’t have much to hold on to therefore you are playing with the umbilical cord. You perceive light and dark better than before. Your eyelashes and eyebrows are well formed, and more hair is covering your cute head.
Week 22 you are the size of a papaya, sometimes I wonder if these fruit sizes are accurate. Your skin still have to develop fully, but there is nothing to worry about because by the time you are here you will be healthy and full. I read that stretch marks might bloom at this point… well, I have some stretch marks leftover from the first pregnancy but I haven’t seen any new ones. During the pregnancy with your sister the stretch marks hit my skin in full force towards the end of the pregnancy. I hope this time won’t happen. Also, this week AOI and I went to see the midwife.
Week 23 you are the size of a grapefruit, really from papaya to grapefruit doesn’t quite make sense to me, but hey you are growing that’s the most important thing. Your hearing is established and your lungs are getting ready for breathing. I hope you can hear all the sweet things your sister say to you. I really hope that bonding last forever.
Until next. All my love,
