So many hopes and dreams have surfaced over the past 4 months, and I smile every time I think about you. I now understand the glow; it’s dreaming of the little being inside and all the endless possibilities. Every time I look down at my stomach I like to place both hands on my belly and almost say a little prayer. I talk to you, even if no words come out. I like to think you listen to my inner thoughts, and you understand every word. I never knew this ‘bond’ mothers often talked about with their child before birth, but now I live it first hand. You are me.
Now that we have arrived at 16 weeks, the question comes up; Boy? Girl? Do I want to know? Will that help our bond? Will it change it? What if Daddy wants to know? Only time will tell
