My sweet Michael. My last letter to you was when I was 16-weeks pregnant. I’m now 39-weeks along — only 1 more week to go to your due date! SO many incredible milestones since I last wrote to you (and so many more to come!). We found out at 20-weeks (June 4th!) that the growing baby in my belly is a BOY! Ryan and I were surrounded by our family and our friends virtually tuned in as we popped a huge balloon over our heads… and out came lots and lots of blue confetti! I threw my arms around your Daddy as he scooped me off my feet! We are having a son. Somehow I always knew that our first child would be a boy.
It’s amazing how much you’ve grown since we first found out about our pregnancy. At 4-weeks, you were merely the size of a poppy seed. It was the most incredible sound to hear your heartbeat for the first time at our 7-week ultrasound appointment, you were the size of a blueberry then. Throughout our pregnancy we’ve been able to check-in on you every few weeks with an ultrasound and doppler to watch you grow and hear your heartbeat. How do you get cuter and cuter every day?? At 39-weeks pregnant, you are now the size of a mini watermelon. » OPEN POST »
