Thank you for all of you nice comments when I announced my pregnancy last week!
It’s already been a week since I announced it. Although I feel like time is dragging by.
Tomorrow I’ll be 7 weeks pregnant. I still can’t believe I’m pregnant you guys. haha! We weren’t planning on having anymore children. But, I’ll tell you what… this was the best surprise I’ve received in a long time! My doctor took me off birth control to try and even out my hormones. I told her I was probably going to end up getting pregnant… and ta da! 5 weeks after I make that comment I’m seeing positive pregnancy tests. hahaha!
I hope I enjoy this pregnancy. I tend to be a very bad pregnant person. I don’t dress cute ever. I’m usually really uncomfortable and impatient. But I’m hoping this time around will be different. I’m eating so much better and have a different outlook. I’m older and wiser. ;) I want to enjoy it. But I am so excited to find out what we’re having! Maybe if time could speed up to mid August that’d be great. ;)
I do have to admit. I’m more paranoid with this pregnancy. I’ve got everyone I know praying hard that this little baby stays safe in my belly. I feel like once I hit 12 weeks I can breath easier. But that’s not what has me extremely fearful and paranoid. As you likely know, Zoe was born 10 weeks premature. I have a 25% chance of having a preemie this go round. Having Zoe when I was only 30 weeks pregnant was terrifying and a long journey. I’d really rather not go through that again with this one. I’d love your prayers!!
I took this picture Sunday… I’m already showing a little bit! Or a lot! Jeez! I’m about 7 weeks!
So far I’m feeling pretty good. Extreme fatigue is my biggest symptom. It’s a weird feeling, because it’s almost like I’m taking a sleeping pill. One minute I’m fine and the next I can barely keep my eyes open. It’s so weird! I do have waves of slight nausea but so far, it’s been very minor. Even more minor than with my previous 2. We’ll see if that lasts. ;) I probably won’t be posting a ton of pictures of my pregnant self, but who knows… maybe I’ll change my mind. :)
Talk soon, friends! Hope you’re all doing awesome!!
