Pregnancy #2: Week 38 Just A Dream

dreaming of youDear Mango boy,

Labour day is getting closer by the tick of the clock and I’m dreaming more of you. Two nights ago I had a vivid dream about your birth.

It was the January 19th. The location wasn’t clear, but at one point I felt you coming and from there I fell asleep. When I woke up I asked your daddy the name he gave you. It was the name I really like. I was happy to have my healthy baby in my arms. I also thought you’re such a good baby, you listen to mummy and came on the say I wished you to come on.

I pray everything goes well. I know God will make everything turn out alright. But still I’ve been dreaming a lot about you, meaning my subconscious is playing the usual tricks on my mind. I wonderful if you are going to be more like your father or like me. 

The other day I felt some cramps and I wanted to woke up your daddy to tell him but I knew those weren’t the signs for active labour. So I focused on my breathing and calmed down. In the end I felt asleep again.

I believe I’m not sleeping through the night because I can’t wait to see your face. I really can’t believe I’m going to be a mother of two in less than twelve days. I hope you will make the transition smooth.

I can’t stop saying how your sister has made this second pregnancy such an amazing experience every woman with a child should experience. She was so in tune with you and it seems like she can sense that soon you will be here in our life. She keeps coming to the belly to hug it and says “I love you belly.”

She memorized one of the names we wanted to give you but since then daddy decided that he is not very keen on. We’re getting close to picking your name.

Sometimes daddy and AOI sing You Are My Sunshine, you move so much in the belly when you hear them. I have images in my mind about what to capture in the first days as a family of four.

This week I washed all the items I been buying for you. I hand washed the tiny baby outfits. Yesterday I washed and dried all your beddings, blanket and winter jacket. It was so pretty to see all the light bright colours in the water. I have to iron them and put them in the boxes I’m going to buy today for your outfits.

I’ve been so good for 38 weeks and two days. The excitement to have you here is slowly putting me into my old impatient self. All-right!!! I can wait twelve days more.

Until next entry a big belly rub, love and kisses,
