Dear Flobee, February 23, 2012


February 23, 2012

In less than 48 hours, your grandma B. will know you exist. Your dad and I decided to tell her … wait, let me rewind. Your grandma is in Vegas visiting us for over two weeks. I could not be more excited. Frankly, right now it is killing me to be around her and her not know. But like your mother, your grandma is super sleuth and she is probably already on to me, I hope I get to her before she figures it out. Tomorrow we have plans … dinner with my group of girls and then Chippendale’s. Don’t you worry about what a Chippendale is … watch your cartoons.{side note: this pregnant lady was way to tired to take Grandma to Chippendales this visit. I didn't know incubating a human was that exhausting, yet.}

I want to share this experience with your grandma because she has been through it twice before. I’d hate for her to leave next month only to find out we knew about you all along.

How am I feeling? My boobs still hurt; I actually think they are growing. When I eat, the bloat doesn’t go away; so today I had to sit for eight hours in work pants that didn’t expand with my bloated and gassy gut.

Our first doctor appointments are on the 6th and 7th of March. Ironically, I already had an endocrinologist appointment already made. I can’t wait to tell Dr. B and see what he has to say. I know that being a pregnant diabetic is going to be a challenge, but I am up for it. Sadly, I don’t have much of an appetite, but I am also not sick. Another reason I want to tell your grandma, to see if feeling fine during pregnancy runs in the family.{side note: yes, apparently it does. Phew. Easy labor and delivery also run in the family.}

We call you the poppy seed because that is about the size of what you are right now. Soon to turn into a sesame seed and then a blueberry. I don’t like the fruit comparisons because you aren’t round, but whatever. Once your ears develop, I am going to read you things like "The Four Agreements," "Oh The Places You Will Go" and more motivational books. If I have it my way, you are going to be one heckuva person. But it isn’t up to me … all we can do is give you the proper tools to make the right decisions in life and hope that you always do your best.

I don’t feel any different though. Once in a while I feel some stretching or cramping in my uterus area. Yea, I know … TMI.

Til the next time, kid … you are loved. You are being born into a great family. You already have three cousins ages 3, 2, 1 and your age is none. That is how the ages will go and it is awesome! We love you.
