Letter to a Bean 4

Hey Bean:)

How are you doing in there? I can't believe that it's May already. We are flying right through this pregnancy, aren't we?

It was the greatest feeling to see you last week during our ultrasound. You looked wonderful:) Thanks for cooperating for us because now that we know that you're a girl, we are able to buy cute things for you as we find them & that is LOTS of fun for mommy! I bought you your first pair of Chuck Taylors yesterday and they just might be the cutest little things I have ever seen. I can't wait for you to be able to wear them.

Daddy & I had another visit with the OB yesterday afternoon. This time we met the third & final doctor in the practice: Dr. Heinzel. He was really funny & very nice. We liked him a lot. He said that your heart rate was measuring at about 155 beats per minute & he also said that its a good sign that it seems to be going up & down. We were glad to hear that. It still sounds like galloping horses to me!

While we were there, we also learned that I have what's called an "anterior placenta." Dr. Heinzel said that this is why I haven't been able to feel you moving or kicking yet; because my placenta is positioned right in the front of my belly & it is acting like an extra cushion between us! So you will have to get a bit bigger and stronger before I will be able to feel you move through all of that padding! So grow-grow-grow, little bean;-)

After the appointment, we visited a baby furniture store and found a beautiful set that I think we may end up getting for your nursery. We're going to look around a bit more first though...just to be sure that we love that one best of all. Next we'll have to pick out your bedding set. Its so hard to choose one because there are so many out there. I wish you could tell me what your favorite color is because I am having a very hard time deciding what color to paint your room!!

Ah well. Its about time for lunch again. Honey Bunches of Oats with banana slices & vanilla soy milk sounds delicious to me today:) I am going to go get us some.

Have a good day, my love. I will see you soon.

Your Mom

First off, I would love to say that you are going to be a truly wonderful mother. Kind and caring- you're just so excited about this and more so, are very deserving. I think I might be more excited than you though, lol, as another Pearl Jam baby enters this world... welcome to the Jamily, Baby Bean :D

Secondly, I just have to comment on your approach to the Baby Blog... It's just so beautiful to see you actually writing TO the baby in these, and signing LOVE MOM... She will look back upon this as she grows older and will say to herself "Damn I've got one hell of a mom... devoted and inspirational... They don't get any better."

Though words cannot describe the feeling you have once you get to hold her- and as she grows, you'll laugh, you'll cry, and then you'll laugh so hard that you might have peed your pants LOL

Treasure these moments as you go through the years, as they will fly by faster than you can possibly imagine. You are strong, you are beautiful, and nothing is more rewarding than Motherhood it's self.

I wish you the best of luck in all that you do and if you have any questions, just feel like chatting or just need a shoulder to lean your head on, I'm you're woman as I have not only raised my three siblings, but have had three little ones myself... as some might say, been there, done that.

I'm here for ya girly and just wanted you to know how happy I am for you. :)

Your friend and true-
