Baby Big Mac - A Letter at 38 Weeks

Little Lady,

Our time together, just you and me, is almost up. I am 38 weeks pregnant today, which means you would be fine on the outside, but we want to keep you warm inside for at least one more week for your neurological development and general health. 

The last couple weeks have been eventful, and a little miserable, but more amazing than not. I got a stomach bug that landed us in the hospital for some fluids and then a wicked gross cough, but the misery ends there!

On March 28th my friends at work hosted a surprise shower at Wayfare Tavern, a restaurant I love in the city. They bought the sweetest gifts for you and sent me home with a pink ballon your brother has been carrying around since. They really got me and made me feel so special, and loved. On April 4th, my last day at work before leave, my boss hosted a delightful send off with sweets and the cutest baby Burberry ever. And then on April 5th your Auntie Whitney hosted a tea for us, and your Auntie M and Auntie Christy, at the Rotunda in Neiman Marcus in Union Square. We enjoyed great tea service and of course they spoiled you!

In terms of your progress and everything medical I go to the doctor weekly now and am hoping like crazy my doc gets to deliver you like she did Ewan. Also, at the 36 week mark we had an ultrasound to see how big you are and of course, being our baby, you are a big girl! Estimated to be 7 lbs at that point, so likely between 8 and 9 when you arrive. We also got a glimpse of your face, at 20 weeks you were covering it from us with your hands, and you are gorgeous. You have beautiful lips, round cheeks, and a similar sweetness in your features to your brother. 

We can't wait to meet you little lady and see that sweet face in person. We love you and will see you in a couple weeks-ish!
