Thank you all *so* much for sharing in our joy! It was SO hard keeping it a secret from the blog– you have all been so supportive and such great listeners while I’ve shared my journey of trying for a baby. Thank you for that!♥ I’m excited that now I get to share a new journey with you- the pregnancy journey. I honestly only told VERY few people till just this Monday. I’m a bad liar and I think that is why my posts became so infrequent once I found out. Now that it is out in the open- we have some catching up to do though!
Introducing…. the bump!
This picture was weeks ago- about February 21st- when I was almost 14 weeks along. I look bigger in this picture than I actually was at that point, my back was a tad arched- I wanted to show my mom & sister that there was in fact a bump! It was the first time I noticed that my tummy was not flat anymore. I was walking/jogging and saw my shadow- it was shocking to see a tiny bump there! ……Again, that was weeks ago and— Golly have things changed. I’m now at 19 weeks so the baby bump is now more of a lump! Ha! :)
In the beginning of pregnancy, and even now, I was/am so scared. Everyone at work asks me how I kept it in so long, and to be honest, it is because I was scared out of my mind that things wouldn’t be a walk in the park. I only told my parents, my sister and her husband, my best friend from college, and a skype friend (whom I have been neglecting due to the much needed sleep that Baby H is requiring) that I was expecting. Now that I am almost 1/2 way through my pregnancy, I can’t believe that the first half is done, essentially. I have spent half of the pregnancy uneasy but am finally falling into a place where I am more at ease. I am so thankful that I am able to fully take in the joy that Baby H has already brought to our lives…. I’m pretty sure that I’ve felt the little one move about this week! My tummy is feeling something it has never felt before and I’m assuming that it is our blessing showing its mamma some love! ♥
