Because I know all too well how these kinds of posts may affect my fellow #ttcsisters and #ttcbrothers, I include this disclaimer to forewarn you. I understand how much these posts can sting and promise to continue to add the disclaimer on any post that may be related to this pregnancy (assuming viability) so that you may have the option to bow out of reading. I understand.
Well, we did it. I was sitting in bed looking at my personal Instagram feed and I decided that it was time to share the news with the rest of the world. S. and I had already told our closest family and friends, and people were starting to ask questions about the bump. I mean, it’s definitely there. When one particularly
nosy curious church elder called out to me as I walked down a crowded church hallway with a “Mrs. XXXX, are we with child?”, I knew it was time to share to everyone else because she certainly would. (How rude by the way). So, I showed the it to S., asked if he had an issue, and he was pretty cool with it (though he said it wasn’t his favorite pic). So, I took the plunge and posted this…
Maternity clothes?: Not really. I’m still only in the one maternity blouse
Stretch marks? Not beyond the ones I had from the last pregnancy
Sleep: Not that great this week. I’ve had a horrible headache and my pubic area feels tender thanks to the round ligament pain
Best moment of the week: Announcing
Have you told family and friends: Everyone knows.
Miss Anything?: Patience. Seriously, I feel so short fused
What I’m loving?: Feeling the baby move. S. still can’t right now and the baby isn’t large enough for me to always feel, so when it does, I cherish the feeling.
Anything make you queasy or sick: Not eating every couple of hours.
Food cravings: Icecream
Have you started to show yet: Yes
Gender prediction: #teamgreen
Labor Signs: No!
Belly Button in or out?: Still in
Wedding ring on or off?: On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Easily irritated especially when hungry.
Preparations for baby: A coworker gave me maternity clothes. That’s about it.
Looking forward to: Not being so tired and cranky.
