Today we got to hear your heartbeat for the first time. It was only for a few seconds but it was incredible! I was so nervous going to our appointment because I just really wanted to know that you were still in there beating away and you are! You are just over an inch long and some sites say about the size of a grape. It’s pretty cool to think about you being in there inside me. I can’t wait until I can feel you move for the first time!
I bought us some crystals today - moonstone, pink quartz, and unakite. Your dad might think I’m crazy but sometimes I like to have something to hold onto and wish upon. We also did a loving kindness meditation today. And there was a time when the facilitator said think of the life inside you and I felt my heart smile knowing I have you inside me!
I hope that you are feeling happy and loved little one because you very much are - by me, by dad, all your grandparents, your uncles, our friends! And that’s just because they are only the people who know! Soon everyone will love you but until then you are just our happy little secret.
I love you! Mom
