A Boy or Girl?

At first you moved, only a little. I could always find you, right in the middle. As time went on, you really started to grow. It wasn't a whole lot, in fact, it was rather slow. Before I knew it, you were all over the place. It kind of felt like you were running a race.

People would ask me if you were a boy or a girl. I would sit and wonder, if you would have curls. There are so many things I really want to know. But you are hidden inside, so the answers don't show. How much will you weigh? How tall will you be? What color is your hair? Will you even like me? I hope and pray you feel like you belong. I never want you to feel like you are alone. Your Dad and I planned you from the start. You, my dear child, were made straight from our hearts. In about a week or so, I'll meet you, for the first time. For you are the product of your Dad's love and mine. There will be no one like you, not any place in the world. It really doesn't matter if you are a boy or a girl. We are both so happy that you even exist. The gender doesn't matter. you'll be hard to resist. I hope I make you proud, that I am your mother every day. Because, you have filled my dreams in more ways than words can say. It won't be long before I can look you in the eyes. I can feel the excitement growing, I know I'm going to cry. Don't worry my angel, those tears will be of joy. It won't matter to me if you are a girl or a boy.
