Tiny Baby,

Exactly 28 weeks ago today, I saw you for the first time on a grainy screen in a doctor's office. I fell in love with you in that moment -- when you went from being a mystery to being real.

I loved you more at every milestone... the first time I felt you flutter in my belly, when I saw you fully formed at 19 weeks (a real tiny person!), when you got the hiccups during that big meeting, and a million more.

I love you immeasurably already, little one, and I know I can't even begin to imagine how I will feel when you are finally in my arms.

But I swear to you, if you do not make your way out of my womb post-haste, I will tear you out of my abdomen with my bare hands.



(Nature is really amazing, in that I'm pretty sure that the only thing worse than childbirth would be still being pregnant more than 2 weeks from now. We are ready when we need to be, I suppose.)

How much more time do you have? I'll be posting my own eviction notice in about two weeks, when she's considered full term. I hope labor and delivery goes smoothly, and I can't wait to hear how it went! :)

Today is my due date. I'm really hoping he makes an appearance this weekend.

What I've always heard is that by the time you get to childbirth you're so sick of being pregnant that you positively welcome the labor that scared you silly nine months previous. Eek?
