Day 1

DAY – 1

 DEAR BABY BOY,

WOW, TO SAY THAT I AM SURPRISED YOU ARE HERE IS AN UNDERSTATMENT - BUT IN ALL HONESTY, SOME PART OF ME KNEW. I HAVE BEEN FEELING LIGHT HEADED, TIRED AND A BIT NAUSEAUS AND DIDN’T PUT IT ALL TOGETHER UNTIL NOW.

 I HAVENT TOLD YOUR FATHER ABOUT YOU YET BECAUSE HE IS AWAY ON BUSINESS. IM NOT KEEPING YOU A SECRET FROM HIM – I JUST WANT TO TELL HIM FACE TO FACE.

 I’M GOING TO GO TO THE DOCTORS TO CONFIRM WHAT YOU AND I ALREADY KNOW. IT’S EXCITING KNOWING THAT YOU ARE HERE AND I CANNOT WAIT TO MEET YOU. I WANT YOU TO KNOW YOUR FATHER AND I, OUR FRIENDS AND OUR FAMILY. ALL OF THE PEOPLE THAT WILL BE PART OF YOUR LIFE.

 I’M GOING TO WRITE YOU A LETTER EVERY DAY UNTIL YOU ARE BORN. I’M GOING TO READ THEM TO YOU EVERY DAY SO YOU WILL KNOW HOW MUCH YOU ARE LOVED AND WANTED.

HOW DID I EVER GET SO LUCKY TO HAVE YOU – THE BEST BABY IN THE WORLD? I AM SO BLESSED.

WHEN YOUR FATHER COMES HOME I WANT TO RUN INTO HIS ARMS AND TELL HIM ALL ABOUT YOU. I WANT US BOTH TO LOVE AND COMFORT YOU AND FEEL YOU GROW – AND BEGIN OUR JOURNEY TOGETHER AS A FAMILY.

ACTUALLY I FEEL THAT WE’VE AREADY STARTED THIS JOURNEY OF LOVE AND COMMITMENT TO EACH OTHER, AND NOW WILL TRULY BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND THE GREAT DEPTH OF THIS.

WELL MY LOVE, IT’S BEEN A LONG DAY TODAY – AND AS YOU CAN IMAGINE I THINK WE’RE BOTH TIRED AND HUNGRY. HOW DOES SOME MILK AND A PEANUT BUTTER AND BANANA SANDWICH SOUND? I’LL EVEN CUT OFF THE CRUSTS FOR YOU. SLEEP WELL MY LOVE.

LOVE MOM, XOXO


JANE WOKE UP AND WONDERED IF IT HAD ALL BEEN A DREAM. SHE FELT HER STOMACH – NO CHANGE, NO BUMP, NO NOTHING. SHE STOPPED TO CHECK HER BREASTS – THEY WERE STILL SENSITIVE AND DEFINITELY MORE THAN SHE HAD BEEN ENDOWED WITH A FEW SHORT WEEKS AGO. SHE CHECKED FOR THE NAUSEA – YEP, THAT WAS STILL THERE.

 

SO, THIS IS REAL SHE THOUGHT…. THE SMILE ON HER FACE WOULD HAVE BEEN ENOUGH TO LIGHT UP AN ENTIRE CITY. SHE WAS RADIANT AND GLOWED WITH JOY. GOD, WHAT A CLICHÉ SHE THOUGHT.

 

SHE HAD DECIDED SHE WOULD TELL HER BOSS AT WORK AS THE MORNING SICKNESS MIGHT NEED TO BE EXPLAINED AS SHE WAS HAVING TROUBLE MAKING IT TO WORK ON TIME. JANE HATED BEING LATE. JANE HATED THE IMPRESSION OF BEING IRRESPONSIBLE EVEN MORE.

 

SHE WOULD CAREFULLY EXPLAIN THAT SHE HADNT YET TOLD HER HUSBAND AND THE REASON WHY, AND ASK THAT THEY SAY NOTHING IF THEY SPOKE TO HIM BEFORE SHE HAD A CHANCE TO SAY ANYTHING.

 SHE WAS SO GLAD TO BE ABLE TO SHARE THE NEWS – SHE WAS SO EXCITED. SHE WAS ALSO SO TORN. SHE WANTED TO SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS – BUT KNEW SHE NEEDED TO SPEAK TO HER HUSBAND AND MORE IMPORTANTLY- HER DOCTOR FIRST.

 

The End
