I have reached the magical twelve week mark and am so thankful to have hit it. The second trimester is on its way and after the last few weeks of constant tiredness and nausea I’m looking forward to the pregnancy glow and extra energy I’m supposed to experience. Come on glow, where are you?
The baby is around 2 inches long this week. My stomach has grown already a lot bigger than that. The baby weighs around half a ounce. I have put on far more than that. Nothing is tallying! Joking aside, I have already put on far more weight than I would have liked to. I can blame grazing to get through nausea. I think I’ve just been greedy. I’m really going to have to take control again otherwise I’m going to end up bigger than ever and that really wouldn’t be good.
I’m waiting for next week’s scan with anticipation and nervousness. How I wish I could go back to the earliest couple of pregnancies where scans just meant a glimpse of the baby and whether I’d be able to know the gender. Now it’s all about whether everything is ok. Hoping and praying that everything is ok. I’d appreciate your thoughts and prayers next Monday too.
