Well here we are… at the beginning of my ninth week of being a mama. Today I leaned that my baby is the size of a cherry, or a green olive, depending on which app you’re using to follow your pregnancy. I still can’t get over the fact that I already have two months down being pregnant.
To be honest though; despite the fact that time is flying by, I can’t wait until the second trimester starts. Every person I’ve talked to, every nurse, every doctor, every blog has promised that I will feel renewed once it hits. Even more than renewed they all talked about a boost in energy; which you know if you’ve been following me, that I am in desperate need of! Pregnancy tired is beyond any other kind of tired. I literally can sleep like a rock; undisturbed for almost 12 hours.
Also, can we talk about the fact that a baby goes from the size of a poppy seed to a cherry, or green olive, in no time at all. The more research and learning that I do, the more amazed I am. Speaking of growing, I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror last night and I could have sworn that I was fully showing. This morning, that went away. #FoodBaby However; soon enough I’ll be showing and my pants are already tighter… which I read can be attributed to your growing uterus, not just all the food I’ve been inhaling.
In any case; week 9 is here and soon week 10; which means my first ultrasound. I cannot wait to see my little babe up on that monitor! 😊
