Dear Bump

I cried a lot when I was expecting you, particularly in the final few weeks. I cried at the hospital when I realised that you would born by c-section, and that my hopes for a different birth were just hopes.

I cried when I though about Markus - joy that he will be a big brother to you, but also sad that his life will change a lot in the next couple of weeks. I cried every time I read him the book "There's a house in Mummy's tummy". I cried when I realised that my pregnancy would end early at 38 weeks - I wanted to carry you until you were ready to be born!

I cried at the last episode of Friends, I cried copiously during every episode of "One born every minute". I cried at all adverts with babies in.

I am sure that I will continue to cry tears of joy and change when you arrive and in the first few days and weeks.

lots of love

your mum-to-be
