Dear Baby Girl,
We are 31 weeks along in our journey together, and only a few short weeks away from meeting face to face. You’re still busy growing and developing in there, and I want you to stay in as long as possible but I know our chances are less than others of achieving this.
Today I saw your face. We had an ultrasound and the 4D scan showed your beautiful little features up so clearly that I found myself in absolute awe that I can tell what you look like while you’re still inside of my womb. It’s a wonderful experience, but still pales to the first time I will see you eye to eye when you join us here in this bright and beautiful world.
I sit and wonder when you’ll arrive. Will you be early like your brother, who came gently but rushed into our lives at 33 weeks and 6 days? Will you be more dramatic in your entrance? Will I go into labour or be brought on? I can’t wait to hold you in my arms for the first time, to whisper my hello and give you your name.
I wonder if you’ll look like me even a little bit? Sam was so much your Daddy, and still is. I wonder if you’ll have his blue eyes and sandy brown hair or if some of my darker skin, eyes and hair will make up your features.
I wonder if you’ll be as gentle as Sam. I wonder if you’ll be shy. Or a free spirit that makes friends everywhere. I wonder if you’ll have the music in you, or whether your passions will lie elsewhere.
I wonder what my life will be like having a daughter? If I’ll be as good a mother as I hope I can be?
All I can do is wait in wonder for you, my miracle girl. The road has been long and arduous to get you here. I can’t wait to meet you there. You will be worth every second and every struggle, a million times over. My heart already belongs to you.
Love, Mama. Xx
