Hello There Bump
I've felt a little hesitant about writing about my pregnancy. I guess I'm a little gun shy because of what happened with my last pregnancy. Everything does seem to be moving along a lot smoother this time around & my belly is growing larger than it did with the last, so I'll take those as good signs that I should not be afraid.
Speaking of the growing belly. I cannot believe how quickly my bump has arrived this time around. I am one day shy of 14 weeks in the photo above. I do not remember showing this early with Sadie & Claire's pregnancies. After feeling really depressed about it for a while, I started asking around & all my experienced mommy friends are telling me that this is quite common with your third pregnancy & on. My uterus has been stretched quite nicely a few times before & so I guess it knows exactly what to do this time around. So I've given up & started wearing some maternity clothes.
I am starting to see some progress with my morning sickness easing up & regaining a bit of my energy. I started cooking dinners again! I'm way out of practice, but making meals for my family makes me feel like such a good wife & mother. :)
I'm hoping to get back to sewing really soon. I sure miss it.
Thank you, thank you for all your kinds words & congratulations about the pregnancy. I know many of you have been around with me for a while & know the struggle it's been. Thank you. I hope to write more about what I believe to have been the cure to our period of infertility, or rather the way in which God answered our prayers soon.
In the mean time, please just tell me that I'm not that ginormous for being only 14 weeks pregnant. Please. :)
