I was wondering if any of you all have had flashes of intuition about your LOs? I get them every pregnancy, especially towards the end in the last month or so.
I had started to think that I wasn't ever going to feel connected to this LO. The pregnancy started out so differently - it was unplanned and I really was not pleased overall in the beginning to know I would have a third. I got over it, of course, but for a while I was angry, especially at DH.
Just now, as I was walking to the bathroom, I was thinking of my Elek because he has been so active today. When I thought of his name, I got a flash in my mind of him as a newborn and "knew" things about him. It made me emotional and I had to choke back tears. Thankfully I was in the bathroom. I saw him with dark hair and sky blue eyes like my grandmother's eyes. I instantly recognized how different he would be from my other two in looks but very similar in personality to me. I also knew he would have a special place in my heart and be mommy's "baby" in more ways than one.
It means so much to me that I do indeed already have a connection to him, even if it is later in pregancy than it was with my other two. It is funny but the image I saw of him made me wonder who the heck's baby he was. lol Part of me hopes he won't be so dissimilar from my other two, but considering both me and DH have parents with dark brown hair, it is very much a possiblity. I always envied my grandmother because of her dark brown, curly hair and sky blue eyes. It would be cool to have a child who resembled her.
So far, my intuitive flashes/knowingness about my other two has been spot on. I knew DD would be a girlie girl and be very cautious in life. So far she is so girly she already asked to get a pedicure/manicure for her birthday and her favorite thing to do is clothes shop. Ha! I knew DS would have a big heart and be a mediator of others and that he would be very active and into being outside like his Daddy. From a young age he was the child who when other children threw tantrums to get a certain toy from him he would just calmly offer it up along with a hug.
So what have been your impression of your LO? I would love to hear them!
