A letter to Peanut

Dear Peanut,
Well, you certainly know how to keep your mom on her toes, little one.
The doctor gave us quite a scare at your first ultrasound. Not long after I saw you on the screen for the first time, and watched you kicking and punching and rolling around happily, we were told that something was wrong. Something involving your tummy and plenty of big, scary words like "birth defect" and "chromosomal problems" and "malformations".
Luckily, at your next ultrasound, we got great news. You have some tummy troubles (don't worry, they can be fixed!) but the rest of your important parts are healthy and where they should be. We got a peek at your beautiful face and you even made us laugh by playing with your toes and sucking your thumb.
So here's what you need to know. Although I can't wait to meet you, you need to stay in my tummy for as long as possible. You need to grow big and strong to be ready for what awaits you after you make your appearance into our world. Trust me, it's much nicer in there, anyway... it's warm and cozy and Mommy will keep you safe.
Daddy and I love you more than you could possibly imagine.
