Weeks 13-14 Pregnancy Update | Dear Baby

Dear Baby Hurd,

When we left off in the last letter your mama was going on 13 weeks pregnant with you. At 13 weeks, pregnant you were the size of a large lemon and now you are as big as a nectarine! You have grown so much in these past two weeks that I am excited to see you back on the ultrasound screen in action. In these last two weeks, I have been talking to you as if you could hear and comprehend every word that I say to you.

I still have found myself lying in bed looking up at the ceiling in amazement. If someone would have told me three years ago that I would be pregnant with my very first child in 2017 and at 24 years old, I would have laughed in their face.

 As much as I wanted to plan this pregnancy, God had other plans. I am beyond bless to have been able to conceive you and to be carrying you this far along. Your daddy has been saying that he believes that you are a boy. He even already has a couple of nicknames picked out for you no matter if you are a boy or girl. We also find out on the 23rd of this month your gender and both your father and I are excited. I wanted to let you know how thankful I am at this stage in my life. You have motivated me in so many ways to keep striving for better. 

I haven’t had any morning sickness or nausea that I had weeks ago. This second trimester really has mama, with more energy. Energy that my body was using to create you with. I also have gained only 10 pounds in these past 3 and a half months! As much as I have been eating I thought that I would have packed on more pounds, however I have really been remaining active. Also, I sorta have a baby bump that pokes out from time to time for show.

 Hopefully, by the end of this month my baby bump is very noticeable and doesn’t look like I ate one to many cheeseburgers with the fries to match it. Lol! Either way I can cope! I know your growing inside of me and the world will soon see how big you can really stretch mama’s belly. I can’t wait to pen my next letter to you baby! Until next time.

I love you,
