Letter to Peanut - 29 Weeks

Pin It!

Dear Peanut-

Lately your movements have changed from quick little jabs and kicks, to more of a rolling, pushing motion. I can tell you are getting bigger and don't have quite as much room to play. The other night while I was sitting on the couch I felt my whole stomach shift to the left, and when I put my hand on my stomach I could feel a hard body part - it felt like your head. This has really kicked my dreams into overdrive. I dream about you every night, and I am getting more and more excited to meet you. For some reason I feel so much closer to you and I can't wait to see you with your dad! I don't think he knows what's coming. There's just something about a little girl and her dad. You will think he is the funniest, bravest, most handsome man in the world (and you will be right).

My stomach is definitely growing right along with you. Every night I look for stretch marks - knock on wood - there are none yet. My feet and ankles are definitely fat and swollen! Last night your dad couldn't believe how puffy they were. He said my ankles might be the place I get stretch marks - hardy har, very funny.

Your room is really coming along! We picked out your glider a couple of days ago, and will be able to pick it up in a couple of weeks. I have a feeling that you and I are going to be spending a lot of time in it together. Your bedding is on your crib, your curtains are hung and a lot of your clothes are in your dresser. Now we just need to decorate the walls.

Also, you officially have a name. About three years ago, when your dad and I were just dating, we picked your name. We knew we both loved it but when I actually got pregnant we really wanted to make sure so we went through hundreds of options. Your dad hated them all. We could not agree on a single other name. So we decided this must be because your name was determined years ago :-)

This is so adorable, lovely letter and a great note to treasure for little peanut to read one day.

We also chose our one and only girls name years before we even got engaged and it stuck... Although now we don't have anymore if we have another girl!!

You look great!! I also look for stretch marks multiple times a day...eek! I've started asking other moms when they got theirs...I mean, we've only ten weeks left to get them right?

Beautiful! I cannot wait to see your sweet little girl! Time is flying by. She'll be here before you know it!

You look AMAZING!! Isn't it crazy when you notice the movements have changed because they have grown enough to start running out of room? The movements are slightly uncomfortable (even painful at times) for me at this point... but it's such an amazing reminder of the miracle inside my body!!

What an adorable little bump! :)

Britt @ The Magnolia Pair said...

Ahh you are so cute! I can't wait to have a bump that size :) I can't wait to see her nursery and find out what her name is!! Did I ever tell you that I love your name? I babysat a gorgeous little girl named Amira for a couple of years, and just adored the name. It may be a contender :) Joel doesn't want to think to hard on a name yet until we know the sex, so I'm trying to gather up all my favs :)
Take care girl!!

Karla said...

What's her name.. what's her name??
And oh geez .. you look adorable.. the other day I said a little prayer that when my time comes I may be as cute and little as you! lol ok wishful thinking I know :P

Melissa said...

I just love you. ;) I think you are one gorgeous person inside and out. I cannot wait to see this baby girl and her finished nursery. The wondering with the first is the best, enjoy each day because even when she's an outside baby you will relive and think back to when she was in the womb. Gah! Makes me want another...JK.
