Letter to a Bean 7
Hey there, littlest one! It's been awhile since I've written. This month has been a busy time for us! Your Daddy and I have been gallavanting all over the place, seeing Pearl Jam time & time again:) As always when they're in town, it's been wonderful...
I hope you could hear them in all of their majesty;-) My books say that you have been able to hear sounds outside of the womb since about the 5-month mark...so I'm betting that you heard it all! We are in our 30th week now-which means we're about 7 1/2 months along! I can hardly believe that we've come so far, so fast.
You got LOTS of attention at the shows! So many friends rubbed my belly in hopes of feeling a nudge from you & so many others bent down to whisper you a few words:) Hopefully you heard all of that going on, too.
I can't believe how much I can feel you move these days! Last Monday night, Daddy and I even SAW you move for the first time! We were standing in the kitchen and I was wearing a pink shirt when...all of a sudden...we saw my shirt move back & forth!!!!! It was a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Ever since that day, I have been noticing your bumps & kicks more than ever. Last night I couldn't fall asleep because I didn't want to have to stop watching you roll my belly all around. You were bopping all around in there & it just looked sOoOoOo cool:)
Daddy & I get to go back to the hospital to get one more ultrasound of you on July 10th. Dr. Laverin is calling it a "growth ultrasound". He wants to make sure that you are growing at a good strong pace & that he predicted our due date correctly. Hopefully he did because I couldn't imagine having to wait even longer to meet you!
Well Bean, I suppose that's all for today. I am going to go get us something cold to drink. I've been awfully thirsty today.
I love you & will be seeing you soon:)
