Around the 11th week my belly began growing a hard little bump. It's expanded quite a bit over the past two weeks, along with the baby, who now measures about 3 inches long, about the size of a peach. And it already looks so complete!
13 week fetus
I have been feeling better and better. Of course there are things that come along with pregnancy that are strange and uncomfortable, but I'm just glad that I'm not feeling so sick anymore.
The next ultrasound is on Wednesday and I'm so happy that I'll get to see my little munchkin again. Blood test results arrived today with wonderful news, everything looks perfect and the odds are definitely on our side that this baby is completely healthy.
What a time! Spring is seeping in, the sun is shining, the dogs are ecstatic on our walks through the warm forest where the last ice blocks melt and birds sing. I'm quickly out of breath but determined to stay fit throughout this pregnancy because I plan on carrying my baby a lot, especially on the daily walks, so my hands are free and I don't have to push a stroller through autumn mud and winter snow.
Beginning the second trimester, where the odds of having a miscarriage are strongly reduced, I feel confident and happy, and can begin to enjoy this miraculous journey.
Thank you all so much for your well-wishes and sweet words!
I have some wonderful recipes to share with you...coming soon.
