Ok....Baby J

Dear Baby J,

You gave mommy quite a scare yesterday when we went to one of our weekly stress test. I could feel you moving but we could not find your little heartbeat. I kinda snapped at the tech when she stated, " I can not find the heartbeat." I suggested to her that might not be the best wording to tell a pregnant lady with hormones raging. So, the doctor had me go to the hospital to make sure that you were OK. As I drove, to the hospital I called  your daddy crying hysterically. I admit that it may not have been the safest way driving but I wanted to get to the hospital as soon as possible to make sure that you were OK. 

Once at the hospital, the nurse, Lisa, made me feel a little more relaxed. As soon as she put the monitor on my belly, I heard your little heartbeat. I felt a little better as soon as I heard it. As usual you started moving to try to get the monitor off. Your movement made me feel much, much better. After the stress test, I got to see you on an ultrasound where your lungs, heart, movement and fluid were checked and all looked good. I was so relieved once you checked out OK. 

 I have come to realize that you have your own personality and you surely like things a certain way. All I need you to do is cooperate with the doctors and nurses that are trying to make sure you are healthy. Please do not scare mommy like that again, I would really appreciate it. 

I will see you in a few weeks and mommy loves you.

Love,
Mommy
