Dear Parasite,

I mean, I mean....
Dear Baby inside me,
I think your great. I mean, its great that you are soon going to be a part of our lives, I mean, you are going to change our lives. You are changing my life already.
...anyway. I guess you like to burp a lot because when you burp your little fetus burp, it slowly ascends to my esophagus where it stays for hours. I look forward to being able to breath after your little burps come out.
Is it true you don't like greasy or spicy food? Well, even if you don't, you didn't have to set my heart on fire because I fed you tonkatsu yesterday. I promise I won't feed you any greasy food again.
Oh, and what about the 7-dollar Kellogs Total that the doctor suggested I feed you that is loaded with vitamins and all the good stuff that you need? Why did you force it out of me like that? huh? You need to get your vitamins.
Speaking of vitamins- is one big pink pill really too much for you too handle. I guess so- it must be hard to handle a pill that is half your size. Sorry, I asked.
I guess I need to end on some good notes. I want to thank you. Thank you for enduring. Thank you for hanging on for 30 minutes for the next meal- don't worry, I will keep 'em coming. Thank you for not getting sick when I ate raw fish- I know I wasn't supposed to. Thank you for sticking your arm out and flexing your muscle for us during the ultra sound. Daddy and I are proud of our strong little psuedo-baby.
Thank you for doing all the exercise for the both of us. You are working so hard to grow fingers and toes, and elbows, and eyebrows, and earlobes that I don't have to exercise. Its nice to be able to sleep while you are working.
I can't wait to meet you someday.
Take care, I love you,
your future mama

Yay! Congrats! I'm so happy for you guys and can't wait to hear is that little one is a boy or a girl!

Congrats! You are amazing! I know EXACTLY what you're going through (trust me, more than you can imagine). Babies and I get along much better when they are no longer residents in my body.

YEA!!! I'm so excited for you! I totally agree with Lauren though. We get along much better when they are out as well, except for I don't sleep as much, which I really miss. Congratulations Amy!
