Dear Spawnie: Thanks for Making Me A Mother

Dear Little LadyBug,

It’s my first Mother’s Day thanks to you. … I think. Well, we’re counting it as my Mother’s Day even though you’re not born yet.
I had a long night at work last night and had totally forgot about the holiday. I got home close to midnight and your daddy was up and excite to see me. When he opened the door for me he rubbed my belly and told me Happy Mother’s Day. I had totally forgotten it was the next morning!
He gave me pretty purple flowers and my FAVORITE… Chocolate covered strawberries!! I had to stop myself from eating them all, and save some for actual Mother’s Day today.

You must have loved them too because you were bouncing around in my belly all night.
Last night, I was talking to my mom, your grandma about when she was pregnant with me and she said I was “kicking kicking kicking” then her water broke! I’m not sure if babies can actually break your water by moving so much but you move so much that I sometimes wonder if you’re just as excited to come out as I am to having you out!
My dreams about you have changed. I haven’t had a dream about you being here lately, but me still being pregnant with you. I try SO HARD to imagine what you’ll look like when you come out but I just can’t picture it! It’s so hard to imagine! I wonder if your eyes will be blue like your daddy’s, or brown like mine. Or could it be possible they’ll be a mixture, and be light brown?
Will you have hair?! I sure hope so! I want you to have lots and lots of curly hair! I had a lot of hair when I was born. I think hair makes girls look more girly. But it’s ok if it takes awhile to come in, don’t worry, you’ll get it eventually. Then you’ll have everyone telling you what EVERYONE tells me: “You have SO MUCH hair!!”
Will your skin be dark like mine, light like your dads or a mixture? But even if it is a mixture, will you be more on the lighter or darker side? I don’t think other moms have as many variables to dream about as I do, so it’s so hard to really think what you’ll look like.
I kinda wish we had gotten the 3D ultrasound so I’d at least know what your face looks like, but your daddy says we’ll be all the more surprised when you get here. I guess that’s true, it’ll be a great surprise to see what you look like for the first time!
We are 33 weeks this week! Going on 34. Just 4 more weeks until you’re full term “done” as people as work keep saying: “it’s done” and you’ll be healthy enough to come out. Some people think you’ll be born in July, not June, but can I ask you pretty please to come in June?! I really like June, it’s half way from my birthday, halfway from Christmas (your due date is exactly the half way mark from then) and your birthstone will be pearl!
July… Well, July isn’t so bad but I just have gotten use to the idea of June. Plus I REALLY want you to be born on the 23rd. So try for that ok? We’ll have to step up our prenatal yoga a little bit and see if that helps any.

You may weigh about 4 pounds this week… FOUR pounds! Wow, you’re growing fast! I’m waddling a lot more, and I can’t help it. I try to stop waddling but then I’m sure I look even crazier for trying to hard NOT to waddle.
You’re also probably about 17 inches long now, which is a pretty darn good length. I was long at birth… 22 inches!
Well, your mommy loves you baby girl. I can’t wait to meet you in less than two months! So much to look forward to, and SO much to do before then! Don’t worry, I’ll be keeping myself busy in case you DO decide to show up in July.
Thanks for making this my first Mother’s Day, and for being such a great baby already. Keep growing.
Love,
Mommy

I’d love to try prenatal yoga. I’m just starting my second trimester and finally feeling like I can exercise again. 🙂

Maya says:

Ooo I want to win it! I didn’t have time for yoga or anything when I was pregnant with M., but this time around I bet I will. Happy Mothers’ Day!

Oooh my goodness I would so love it too, although this little one is almost here. We get a second measurement next week, three weeks ago came in at 5.8lbs, so we are thinking about 7.5-8lbs, and induction at 37weeks. I can’t wait. Can’t wait to hold this little one in my arms, watch big sister with it, and be able to move agian. I too waddle, ALOT! I can barely walk, and when I get up,my stomach is ahead of me all the time.
You are looking great, doing great, and hope all else is well.
hugs

Ashton says:

Congratulations on your first Mother’s Day! 🙂 It counts- hubs is right! 🙂
Did your ward do anything for you Moms today? Our’s gave a cd of Emma’s Hymns- I can’t wait to listen. I love that they include all women, and not just moms 😉 but my day would have been that much better if I had been able to hold a little one, or my belly even, during a Mother’s day sacrament.. 🙂
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!!

Toni says:

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already been 34 weeks, and yet, I’m sure you are so ready for those next 4 weeks to get here. 🙂

You are so cute in your preggo pics. I’m not sure Spawnie is gonna be too big, I’m predicting a 7 pounder. 🙂 What do you think??

Toni says:

Ohhhhhhhh, and, Happy Mother’s Day!!!

KarmaPearl says:

It’s official. You are THE cutest preggo I’ve ever seen. That first outfit you have on is SO FREAKING CUTE. It shows off your belly so well. You are ALL TUMMY!!!

Getting closer!! Not too much longer ’till you meet your Lady Bug. It’s crazy; seems like yesterday you announced your pregnancy. Time goes too fast. Happy 1st Mother’s Day to you.

dee says:

You look amazing!

I can’t wait to see what Spawnie looks like. It’s always so exciting to wonder and guess about that.

heather says:

Happy Mother’s Day! You look so great!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

beansmom says:

i would love to win the prenatal yoga video! There website seems neat and the prenatal yoga class I go to once a week has been great and helpful both physically and mentally. It would be awesome to be able to do some at home with the video!

Katie Lane says:

So sweet. I’m so excited for you, here’s hoping for June!!

cheri says:

spawnie feels your love, that’s why she’s bouncing so much 🙂

happy mom’s day 🙂

Who would not love that dvd?? I just started my 3rd trimester and need to loosen up the aches and pains of the extra weight from carrying little man.

Btw my son is due August 1st and I want him to come in july. I am excited to see him and I don’t think mommy’s body can handle him getting this much bigger for long, lol.

I hope you had a Happy 1st Mothers Day! :o)

hotpants™ says:

I love the first pic of you. You look great in pink.

Busted Kate says:

I’d love a prenatal yoga DVD! Count me in! I’m so stressed, hoping things come out ok this week, I could definitely use some de-stress time.

You have the cutest bump in the world… and you’re still so tiny everywhere else!

Ana Lee says:

My friend wants to try prenatal yoga! I’m throwing her baby shower and would love to give it to her as a gift. Then hopefully she’ll share with me when I get pregnant! 🙂

Ana Lee says:

Seriously, you look so beautiful.

I have been trying to get a prenatal yoga dvd, but I have been so indecisive on one!! Stretching is just not the same now that I am pregnant. The last couple of times that I woke up and tried to do a nice stretch, I have gotten leg cramps!!! It is so not fun. My DH chuckles when I now do my timid little stretches. Oh how I wish he could feel my pains, that would certainly show him. lol.
BTW, I am 24 weeks right now, and my little one feels as if he is trying to bust his way out!! So I know how your feeling with those kicks.

I’d love the Prenatal Yoga DVD! Yoga sooths more than my aching muscles. 🙂

Happy Mothers Day! I just found out I’m expecting my second so I’d LOVE to win the DVD!

Marisa says:

I would love this DVD. I’ve just been thinking that I should try some prenatal yoga this time around. I’m starting to get achy, so hopefully it would help!

I would LOVE to win the yoga dvd!

Sapphire says:

I’m sure Spawnie will be beautiful, you don’t have to worry about that! I think she’ll have a mixture between yours and the daddy’s eyes and they’ll be green. I think she’ll have lots and lots of curly light brown hair. You’ll have to keep posting, I can’t wait to see what she actually does look like!
