Mommy Musings: Dear Son...

I found out about you in a very unexpected way. I will never forget the moment I heard those words, "You're pregnant". That day, I knew my life would be forever changed.

Your dad and I were at the doctor's office because I had a pre-surgery check-up that day. After watching an informational video about the obstetrics procedure, we were ushered into the doctor's office for a consultation. As we were paying and checking out, the nurse tapped me on the shoulder and told me the doctor wanted me back in his office. I jokingly said "Why, am I pregnant or something?". And that's when I heard those magic words. My heart stopped, I thought she was joking. When I realized she was being serious, I started crying. You see, we have been waiting for you for so long, and learning that you had been slowly growing inside me for 6 weeks already was a miracle for us.

This was 6 months ago... and every day as my body changed, and keeps on changing, as you grow stronger and bigger, I thank the powers that be for this wonderful blessing.

Please keep growing stronger and healthier- stay cooking my little bun in the oven. We are very excited to meet you, but we can wait a few more months!

I love you,


  1. Congratulations on your pregnancy! This is such a heartfelt letter for your baby!

  2. Congratulations! And good luck with the pregnancy!
