+ Communing + Did you hear the conversation I had with you last night? Okay, it was pretty one-sided, but I told you all kinds of interesting things. I hope you get used to my voice and like it. I sing to you too, but I'm always singing (especially in the car by myself), so I'm really hoping the sound of my singing will soothe you when you're out here with us. You might be growing in there, and I my physical shape may be changing, but I'm not gaining any weight. In fact, I weighed less at my Dr. appointment than I did before I was pregnant with you, and I weigh less now than I did at the appointment. Not a lot less, maybe only 2-3 pounds total. But I suppose I should probably be eating more. I am just glad I'm so crazy about taking my vitamins. I know you're at least getting those nutrients. I'm going to go to the tummy Dr. on 9/5, a week before we see you again, to make sure my Celiac isn't causing problems and I'm absorbing all the nutrients we need. Keep your fingers crossed. Okay, that might be hard for you, so I'll do it for us.

+ 10 weeks + Hello, baby! Can you believe you've been hanging out in there for 10 weeks already? Amazing! My coworkers know about you now, and everyone's very excited about watching me grow and someday being able to see you moving around. It's nice to have other people around me excited too. I still wish we could have a Dr. appointment to see you sooner, but I supposed it will be here before we know it. You're still growing and pushing my tummy out little by little. This is making my clothes a little uncomfortable, but I've been wearing loose sunny dresses this week, so it's actually just fine. The last couple of days, I've been feeling really good. Every once in a while, I get a quick flash of pretty major nausea, and it disappears almost as fast as it comes. Other than that, and still being a little sleepy, we're doing just fine!

+ 7 months + Seven calendar months from today is your due date. Surely I won't be delivering on this day (that almost never happens), but in 7 months hopefully I will be close to, or just finished with delivery. If everything goes right, sometime around 7 months from now, I will be holding you in my arms. What an amazing concept! Of course, I have more than 30 weeks before that date, which makes it seem oh so much longer. I'm really not in a hurry; we have SO much to do before you get here. Ugh. I'd better get on that, huh? We have started shopping for you, but your uncle Chris needs to empty your room of his belongings first. One of these days, he should have that done and we can really get started!

+ Mondays + I'm having a fabulous pregnant day! No upset tummy at all, my awful headache from yesterday went away, I got plenty of sleep, and I have none of the weird achey things I usually have. Thanks for giving mommy a break today! I had to break down and buy a maternity/prenatal bra on Saturday because I was hurting so much. But they like the new bra and everything's much happier in that department now. One month from today we get to see you again. What you happily do not know is that one month from today will be one day after a very bad anniversary for our country. But you'll learn all about that in history class in a few years so I won't worry you with it now. I'm just happy that you've given me something wonderful and joyous to think about on September 11th. It's proof that the world continues and the cycle of life never ends. What a miracle!
