Has it been that long?

Dear Baby,

I should be 35 weeks along with you at this point.  I should know if you were a boy or a girl.  I should be feeling you hiccuping and kicking.  I should have seen your face on ultrasound by now.  I should be relishing these next few weeks, because if you were to be like your sister, I could have expected you to arrive next week.  I should be shopping for last minute items.  I should be packing a hospital bag.  I should have a name picked out for you.  

Instead, you remain nameless.  I don't know if you were a boy or a girl.  I never saw your face on ultrasound.  I never felt your kicks.  But that doesn't mean I don't think of you.  I think of you everyday when I see your sister's face and wonder if you would look like her. 

You are a part of me.  And I miss you everyday.

I've been thinking along those lines too, since I'd be 37 weeks right now. I wish I'd had a chance to know my baby better and I wish other people got to know him/her at all. Good luck with the next few weeks.
