I’ve noticed you’re a bit crowded in there. Your head is pressed up tight against my cervix and your feet and hands seem to find my ribs and pelvis a bit constraining. The constant pressure of your little butt, sometimes visible from the outside of my body has given me a set of very colorful purple lines on my belly. Daddy’s feeling crowded too as we slowly encroach on more and more of the bed – what between my expanding belly and the elaborate spread of pillows I need to sleep.
I know everyone has been telling you “STAY IN THERE” for months now, and so this sudden change in plans is perhaps confusing. You haven’t experienced much in your short life and maybe you’re not sure the plans won’t change again. I also realize you may have heard that your mommy and daddy only have a one-bedroom apartment and you won’t be greeted with an elaborately decorated nursery like some of your friends-to-be. I promise you, though, that there’s still a lot more room for you to grow and play out here than in there.
Not only that, but the view is better as well. We have two adorable cats who I’m sure will entertain you lots over the years and if you get here before Tuesday you’ll get to see the first night of your first holiday – Chanukah – and I know you’ll like all the candles and lights.
If you need to stay in there a little longer, I understand, but I just wanted to let you know, it’s okay now. We’re ready and waiting and can’t wait to meet you.
