9 weeks - Dear Daddy

Okay so DH has still been quite distant from everything going on. He is there for me but doesn't speak much about the pregnancy. Scared to touch my belly and stuff like that. He ask questions about doctor visits that he doesn't make it to, comment about foods I eat, or things I'm doing ect....but I mean like talking to the baby, reading about the baby he doesn't do. I can't get him to read a book to save my life so that was out the question. I even bought one called the Quarter back dad...think football okay maybe...nope didn't even open it up! So one night I dreamed about writing him a letter from the baby and said I would give it to him once a week. I started that day writing the letter as soon as I woke up since I was on bed rest anyway and wrote it up for a couple of weeks. So today I gave it to him. Here is the letter:

Hi Daddy,


Today I am 9 weeks old, and guess what I’m starting to move now! I am one inch long and the size of an olive. I am starting to grow nipples and hair follicles an all my organs are already in place. Guess what else Daddy? This week I’m growing my um…private parts….as we speak I either have a wee wee growing or a hoo-ha growing. I know what it is but you won’t be able to know for about 9 more weeks.


This week I can make a fist and begin sucking my thumb. This week I will be able to open my mouth for the first time. My eyes are completely formed and I can’t wait till I see you, but for now they are going to stay shut until I’m 28 weeks.

Now for Mommy, due to me working so hard to grow healthy and strong and producing lots of hormones….mommy may be having some mood swings. Be nice to her and know that it’s because of me, but she will be back to normal soon.

Well Daddy that’s my update for the week. I love you and I can’t wait to see you!

Love Always,


Your little Minnie Me!


He loved the letter. He was reading and said nipples no its a boy, boy's don't have nipples. I said baby everybody has nipples. He was like oh yeah. Then he was like he is growing a wee wee. He smiled at the end and said thanks babe. He seemed really interested in all that it said....so that is good....one step at a time. Stay tuned for next weeks letter!


In other news I found the baby's heartbeat at home today! WooHoo! Found it at 9 weeks! Wasn't really expecting to find it for a couple more weeks and I've been trying for a few days with no luck but it picked right up today. The readout said 176BPM! Wanna hear it?? Here it is: Heartbeat

This is a wonderful way for A to feel more connected to the pregnancy!

This was a great idea!!! I don't think men really get connected until they can see or feel something. It's just the way they are made! But I love the idea of a letter! I might have to steal your idea.......

VERY sweet, it took my DH some time to come around too. I think they know heartache just as much as we do.

What a wonderful idea. I never would have thought of that. You had me smiling and tearing up. A will come around. You know how men are. Keep them coming, I'm looking forward to them. Love ya!

That's so awesome. I even read your letter to my dh. He liked it too. He said the heartbeat sounds like a heartbeat in water. :o)I said yup, cause that's exactly what is.

Very lovely!

I love my doppler too. I listen every day!

OMG hun, you letter got me in tears. How sweet!! Its hard for guys to connect to the baby until they start moving and they can actually feel it. They dont have them inside changing their bodies, they dont have the constant reminder they have a little one growing. So hang in there! THat was such a sweet amazing idea! Love the letter. Cant wait for next week.
