letters to our little one. part iv.

19 weeks, 2 days. 

Dearest Little One,

Wow, it seems like time has flown by since I last wrote to you! Nearly seven weeks have passed by in what feels like an instant. After our 12 week scan it has felt like everything has been going by much faster, which I have to say is actually quite a relief. And what a scan that was! It was really amazing all the things the technician could tell us about you considering that, at the time, you were only about 3 inches long! She showed us your little arms, legs, your developing face and spine and assured us that everything is developing as it should be and that you were looking perfect. What a relief! And she also told us that you are a girl! Such exciting news! Of course we would have been delighted either way, but it is just such a joy to know that we are preparing to welcome a precious little gem of a daughter into this world in only a few months from now! Lucky us.

Since that time I have definitely begun to look more & more like a pregnant mommy! And what a joy it is. The second trimester has been a breeze compared to the first so far, although my tummy is beginning to feel a little heavy! But that is mostly exciting and not at all uncomfortable yet, which is great. Your grandparents & aunty Zandy were here visiting for the past two weeks and they are all so excited to meet you! It was super fun to talk to them about our preparations for you and think about the next time we see each other - welcoming you into the world and meeting you for the first time!

Next week is our twenty week scan, when we get to see you again in 3D and see how your little organs are developing. How fun that will be! By that point we will be officially half way through the pregnancy and can start counting down to your arrival. Woohoo!

Ok my little one, I will write more soon, I promise!

Lots of love,


You at about 12 weeks. A little girl!  

Me at about 16 weeks, in a bikini!
