Who thinks that?!

I know this is ridiculous isn't it, but I've been thinking the same sort of thing.  I think I feel so blessed by this unexpected pregnancy (this is happening amongst a lot of bad life crud) that I'm almost waiting for the ball to drop.  Though, hey, I need to stay positive.  That's all we can do...if this is meant to be it's going to happen!  And, it definitely feels meant to be so I'm hoping things continue as I expect.  Still feels a way until the second trimester though!  

 

And, I am about 9 weeks 5 days and look so pregnant it's ridiculous already.  I guess, being that this is the fifth my abdominal muscles remember and gave up at the wiff of pregnancy hormones ha!

Mine is the same - unexpected and for sure happening during a less than ideal time. I've been so fortunate in never experiencing a loss, having uneventful pregnancies and births, healthy children, will be 37 next month and over here about to bite my nails off waiting for the NT scan because surely everything can't be perfect this time. I had a dating US at 6w but there was little to see. I'm wondering if the baby has actual legs and arms and a brain. The 1st tri is so weird anyway. It's disconnected and icky feeling. Heck, pregnancy is weird all around! I'll pass pregnancy tests in the store and think....maybe I'm just sick? It's a lot of nonsense feelings, but I wanted to commiserate with you ladies because I'm there too. 

 

I'm not allowing myself maternity clothes just yet, but am living in stretchy waist bands. Warm weather makes that easy. I put my usual jeans on last week and couldn't wait to get home and rip them off.

It is so strange to feel this way because I am always super sick to the point of getting dehydrated and having to go to the er. I usually have hyperemisis gravidarum but this time I have barely puked. I do sometimes feel nauseous but nothing as extreme as normal. I hope that everything is ok with this little one...I have to get a dating ultrasound on Monday because I never had a cycle after the last baby. I hope it begins to feel more real and I can't wait to know how far along I am!
 

 

 

I'm in the same boat as you ladies.  

I'm not sure if I had HG last pregnancy, but definitely severe nausea/vomiting, at minimum, that landed me in the ER around 7w after morning sickness hitting hard around 4w.  This time, I haven't puked once yet and I'm 8w3d today.  The nausea has been pretty bad off and on, but nothing compared to my other two. 

 

HaperRose, I actually had that exact thought a few days ago.  redface.gif

What is with this belly already!? It is SO obvious I'm prego. This is my 4th pregnancy - 2 living kids. Had an early MC between DS1 and DS2. Even my elasticated normal pants are getting uncomfortable! Like seriously - my friends keep staring at my belly and I can tell they want to ask but are afraid to in case I'm just getting fat. LOL

LOL That's funny, OrganicViolin!

I'm so glad you started this thread! After spending over a year and a half TTC, we had a chemical pregnancy in December and then in April we got the positive for this one. We've been so, so excited but I've also gone back and forth between feeling incredibly happy and crazily worried. I'm 11 weeks tomorrow, and I've only had minimal queasiness (and thrown up one time) from m/s. I feel abnormal, even though I keep seeing that I should just be grateful I'm not experiencing it. 

 

Last week my belly felt really big (probably just bloating), but this week, not so much, which makes me so nervous. My boobs are still sore, I'm still peeing every ten minutes, and we heard a nice strong heartbeat at nine weeks...yet I feel so very worried. We plan to tell everyone on Saturday, and I'm bursting with the news but also can't help but have terrible thoughts about how we'll just have to tell everyone bad news. So awful! I need to just not worry and go with each day, but it's so very, very hard.
