Things I cried about....

Dear Bump

Here is the final postcard for you, before we meet you! I cried a lot in the last few weeks of pregnancy, my hormones were really kicking in, ready to meet you.

I cried when I thought about meeting you for the first time
I cried when I thought about what i wanted for you
I cried for absolutely no reason, sobbing my heart out in the hallway, whilst listening to the beach boys
I cried at all the lovely emails and comments that I got from my friends all around the world
I cried when mr.ncot would yell "Hellooo" to you through the bump
I cried when I watched a dvd about how to tie baby slings
I cried when my sister sent me this email:
Just sending you lots of love for today. Just remember to be more excited than scared/ freaked out! If you are half as good as being a mum as you are at being a big sister, you're going to breeze it. Have I made you cry yet? Will be thinking of you both/ all, lots of love,
KTP


So much your love
your crying mama, who is so excited to meet you.

I hope everything goes well today - I'll be eagerly awaiting the next update!

I'm pretty excited here - and also glad for you, you looked about ready to explode in the last picture :o)

Fingers crossed for later!

Thanks! Close to exploding doesn't come near :-) I feel so much better now that baby is out and the weight is gone!

By the way I have a cross stitch question for you - do you know if there is a way to convert a photo / image / jpg into a cross stitch pattern? Is there a website or download which can do this! Mr.ncot gave markus a beautiful card which I would like to turn into a cross stitch.

Have also emailed you this question!

Sorry, I missed the question bit of this.

I have some software here which will convert JPGS into cross stitch charts, with DMC or Anchor colours - if you scan the image and email it to me, I'll do it for you if you like.

THANKS!
That would be brilliant. As soon as I get my laptop connected to the scanner again, and baby m stops crying, I will scan and email :-)

Looking forward to the parcel !

Thinking of you SO MUCH today!!! I know we don't know each other that well and have only met once but I do feel such a connection to you, tied closer by emails and of course a criss-crossing of books across the channel! Be brave, be strong, be excited and not fearful. Once the baby is here, don't worry about the lack of control over your environment and the babby; go with the flow, chill out, accept all the help that is offered, ask for help when you need it, and be happy...

(crying yet?)

THANKS!
Lyzzybee, you are such a star :-) I feel the same way about our virtual friendship and I really hope that we will meet in the flesh again soon :-)
