This is my first UP/UC, and my first child.
I'm excited. I'm anxious- I want to meet my baby, and I wish the summer would fly by so I can meet her (or him, I suppose). The last few days ahve been more anxious than in the past. I guess I'm getting to a point where I feel like I'd get a lot of uncomfortable questions if I decided to go a bit more medical (not that I really want to...). So far, its been easy going, almost like I'd made no decisions regarding care... now its getting to the point where I really need to actively and finally affirm that I will not be seeking medical attention with this pregnancy.
I've been worried about not growing enough. I feel my uterus and the fetus, so its not a colossal error- I am indeed pregnant, strangely comforting
I do have a long torso (5'9" and SHORT legs), and a broad body type- so I guess baby and uterus just have a decent amount of space to take over inside before I'm going to "pop". I still just look rounder and fluffier- like I ate way too much, and am full of intestinal gas so my stomach is distended. I just keep reminding myself that a lot fo the women with cute baby bellies are much shorter, have had previous children, etc, and that my body's doing what's right for me.
I'm doing well on the "keeping up with exercise" front. Marginally less good on the "eating good stuff" front. My body is not-so-gently reminding me that HFCS is not good for me. Damn Easter candy. Working to get back on track with good eating habits though.
