Dear Baby- End the first trimester

*Clearly the pregnancy hormones have kicked in and I'm feeling rather sentimental about the end of the first trimester. Since I want to document everything pregnancy-related on this blog, here is my end of the first trimester letter to my little alien.*

Dear Baby,

We've made it to thirteen weeks now, the end of the first trimester. You're still growing strong and getting bigger and bigger everyday. It amazes me that we are a third of the way through this journey. It feels like just yesterday that I got the positive test and sat on the couch crying with joy with your daddy. I know that this time will feel like it is forever, but in hindsight will have sped by, so I am making it my mission to enjoy every moment with you as you develop in side me. 

Knowing that I am creating something so precious and real, is an awe-inspiring feeling and one that I've never experienced before. Already we've experienced so much together. I will never forget the first time I saw you in that first ultrasound, or the first time I heard your little heartbeat, and I will NEVER forget all the times you made me sick... trust me, there will be payback for those weeks, be prepared. 

Looking forward, there are so many amazing things to come. I can't wait to feel you move for the first time, if you don't mind, you could just hurry up on that! I can't wait to find our what you are, so I can start referring to you by name... or at the very least by a proper pronoun. While I love calling you my little alien (since you've invaded my body and taken over) I can't wait for you to be my little baby (okay, I guess I can share you some with your daddy... maybe). 

So keep growing little one. While I'm anxious for your arrival, and can't wait to meet you, I know you need time to be ready for the world and I feel so blessed to be able to experience this with you. See you in July!



  1. This was soooo sweet! You won't regret documenting this journey. It's something so great to look back on.

  2. Amazing! I remember this time perfectly, and my baby girl is almost 4 months old already. I never had sickness- I swear I had the easiest pregnancy known to man...I guess I should say woman :) Glad I found your blog...very relateable to me! My blog is about being a new mom!


The best part of blogging is hearing from my readers, so share your thoughts and ideas... or just say "hi"!
