Dear Alice,

I have carried you inside me for 34 weeks and they have been the best 34 weeks of my life so far.

I have been very lucky, I have had no sickness, a little tiredness and lots of good feelings since you came along, from the day I found out I had you I felt lucky and told people I had won my own personal lottery.

I was happy to stop drinking if it meant keeping you safe, luckily I had given up smoking too but for you any sacrifice seemed easy to make.

It was wonderful to have you at our wedding, Auntie Fashion made a beautiful dress for us, and yes you as a little bump were taken into consideration.

Everyone was so excited to see the little black and white scan pictures of you and my heart soared when I saw little images of you moving and heard your own heart beating.

When I first felt you move I was so excited and then when your Daddy felt you move I was overjoyed, some mums complain of being in pain, but you never really hit me that hard. I worried that this meant something but I think you were well cushioned in me and never needed to hit hard.

Myself and your Daddy are looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you, you are coming into a big family who are all looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you.

You are so special to me and I love you very much. I hope that you are always happy and that life is everything you want it to be. You deserve the world.
