Pregnancy #2: Week 36

sisterly love

Dear little Mango,

At the beginning of the year when I envisaged myself pregnant in 2013 I wasn’t sure it was going to happen but here I’m, 4 days before the end of 2013 and you are cozing up in my belly.

I’m so happy and glad to chose to start growing in my belly and then come out in 2014. I feel 2014 is going to be one great year for me and I’m glad you are coming to share in with my happiness. God is incredible in everything He does, because you made my 2013 a year to appreciate. If it wasn’t for you I would have hated 2013 so much due to the pain it brought in my life during the summer.

Knowing that a precious little being like you was growing in my womb, even during the time of tribulations, I was happy and grateful for the love Almighty shows me every waking hour.

I thank you for being you and for choosing me as your mother. You brought me a renewed joy to live.

Your sister so happy to know that you are coming. My heart swells whenever your sister, out of the blue, comes to me and while saying “Baby, I love you so much.”  she pulls my top up and gives you kisses. That make me want to have you out right now but I can wait the three weeks left to see you.

I can’t wait to see her play with you and read you her books. I love you both so much, my heart gets bigger each passing day.

Until next update stay cool sweet little boy.

Loads of love,


week 36

Movement: sometimes I hear some pops in the belly and wonder how much room you have left

Sleep: Still sleeping through the night again but sometimes turning my body into the other side cause so much pain in my lower back.

What I miss: doing Pliates and working out in general. Thursday, Boxing Day, we went sledding and I wanted to play in the snow like my friend was doing but I couldn’t Sad smile 

Food Cravings: I’m into raw rice, but I decided to stop it because I don’t if is bad for my health and baby’s {thank goodness I don’t have any more in the house}

Food Aversions: None

What I'm Looking Forward To: Holding baby in my arms in few weeks time


  1. AHHH the dreaded back pain of ending pregnancy. He will be here before you know it! I am so excited for your family.

  2. Awwww, that is the sweetest pic of you and AOI with your growing belly. Gosh, you are so close to the end it's amazing. Looking forward to the announcement of his arrival.
