Yes we are!
It’s been a strange and crazy few weeks, but in all the madness somehow A and I managed to get ourselves a little surprise. I’m not sure even how to start all this since it is all new, exciting, and scary at the same time. We found out only a few weeks ago and have just started the process of doctor visits. I’ve been told that I could be anywhere from 6-8 weeks. I won’t know for sure until my first ultrasound, which will most likely happen in the next couple weeks. I’ve gone through blood tests and a whole lot of paperwork. Who knew that there were so many waivers to sign??
So, here are the first baby bump pictures:
Just kidding! There is no baby bump yet! The picture is more to remind me that my stomach was once flat. According to my book the baby (if at 8 weeks) is about the size of a raspberry. So very small yet causing me a bit of disturbance. I feel fine for the most part. Last night and today have been the only hint of morning sickness I’ve had. I described it to A as having a constant hangover that you just wish would go away. I feel a little off- hungry but food doesn’t sound good, tired with a dull headache, crampy with a backache. No fun, but I know it could definitely be worse! I also have this strange heightened sense of smell! A calls it my new super power. Everything smells ten times stronger- from my face soap to the trash. It all drives me a bit bananas!
Everything is good so far! My next doctor appointment will hopefully be a little more informative. I’m constantly worried and anxious, but I’m sure once I ease into this it will all become less stressful (or not). Just taking it one week at a time.
