16 Weeks

Dear Squid,

I thought of something recently that I wanted to remember for later, probably more for my sake than yours, but of course, when the cursor is blinking at me, waiting, I cannot remember it…

It’s now two days later & I remember what it was — Pineapple! I’m loving it at the moment and can quite easily eat a quarter or more of fresh pineapple in one sitting. Delicious!

Another day later and… I got to see you snuggling in my belly this morning. Goodness me that does not get old and I fall more and more in love with you every day. You had your arms up around your face (similar to how I sleep) and your legs tucked up in front. So so amazing to see you growing & moving about.

The midwife showed me where I can feel my uterus, your home for the time being. I can’t wait to show your dad so he can feel where you are too. Your Mimmi came this morning and it was so nice to share it with her. She’s quite a teary one and being able to see you was really special. She’s taught me pretty much everything I know, so when you’re old enough you have her to thank… or blame.

I’m really looking forward to being able to feel you wriggling around and even more so when you’re big enough for your dad to feel the movements too. He is so good to me and you already, it’s like falling in love with him all over again. You’re a very lucky kid to get this guy as your dad!

And for all my stressing about feeling like I’m putting on lots of weight, I’ve only added 1.5 kilos in the last 6 weeks which isn’t as much as I’d thought. So that was a nice little bonus.

Everything is going very quickly and very slowly at the same time. It’s so wonderful I could burst.

Keep growing, little one

Love,

Your Mama
