First Pregnancy – Leila
To the little thing growing inside my belly…
My love, from the moment I knew that you were growing inside me, I loved you! I had wished and prayed for you for so long and now it’s only a few more days until I get to hold your little body in my arms and love you unconditionally.
Over the past 38 weeks, I have watched you grow on the doctor’s screen and shed a tear for each of beautiful developments. I have seen my belly grow from a small little bump to the size of a watermelon and we gave you cute little nicknames as you grew.
At 18 weeks the doctor finally told us that you were a little GIRL!!! I was so happy that I almost fell off the bed, the doctor laughed and daddy shed a little happy tear. From that day on I was floating in a cloud of pink bubbles… That’s what I used to call you, My bubbles!
Daddy and I then set out on a journey choose the perfect name for you. We wanted something special, and because you always seemed to be more active at night we decided to call you Leila; which means night or dark beauty.
I am not going to lie; I have fears for you coming into this world, where you will face challenges and hardships, not like in my belly where you are safe! But, I do promise to protect you with everything I have, your father and I will do our best to raise you to become a strong woman and to love and cherish everything in life.
All I want for you in life is very simple… I want you to be happy, healthy and loved. I promise not only to be your mom but also your best friend, I want you to confide in me and trust that I will always be by your side to help and guide you. Your dad will be your protector and will love you unconditionally; because as he says “She Is My Little Girl” and he can’t wait to hold you in his arms as he already holds you in his heart.
My Leila, one day you will read this letter and just know that no matter how old you get, you will always be my little girl and I will always be your mommy.
My dear little one; Thank you for choosing me to be your mom, I can’t wait to meet you!
