Waiting, i am 5'5" but have a really short torso. I feel like my showing is a fat pad on my belly, not baby. I have a small bulge that only i can see right above my pibic bone as of monday. Im at 8 wks.
Waiting- i had no problem going back to vegan. I dont particularly like meat anyway and have various reasons why i eat vegan. We only buy meat where we know personally how the animal was treated, fed, and then processed. My degree is in nutrition and dietetics so i know too much about conventional food systems especially meat. It is worth the extra cost to me but still weird to want to eat meat.
So, again not trying to ostracize the first timers but I am pg with my third and I feel like I am showing way faster than with my other two. With DS I didn't start really showing until after 18 weeks and with DD it was around 16-18 weeks. Um I know my abs are not what they were but it feels like I am showing way earlier now. I am at 8 weeks today?
I would do it. I am planning on having a mother's blessing for our third and a shower if my mom or mil insist. If anything, i think it is great to get together and celebrate a new life, no less worth celebrating than the first two
Ok i just want chicken, eggs, cheese and green apples. Of note bc i ate primarily vegan since dd was born and i did for 5+ years before i got pg with her. When pg with her, i just wanted bacon eggs cheese and apples. Whatever keeps me from throwing up, i dont care lol. Oh and anything remotely sweet makes me nauseated.
I didnt cry when i heard either of my kids heartbeats. Just listened. I also cried at dancing w the stars while pg. so, i think it just varies when you are emotional. I got a bit teary at our ultrasound but no crying like at commercials or tv shows. I didnt feel connected as much until i felt movement. That really helped.
