Settling in (July 14)

You settled in this week. I had cramping last week which was disconcerting. I was seriously tired this past weekend, but week 5 seems to suit you. I picture you as being in a protective shell like a bird egg. I'm getting more confident that I'll be able to carry you through this.

I had a dream last night that you are a girl. I was relieved that you were, because that meant I wouldn't have a little boy peeing on me when I change diapers. I also dreamed that labor was easy but breastfeeding was a mess!

I see the doctor for the first time today. I am very excited.
