Well, my first trimester has come and gone. For many women, the first trimester can be very unpleasant. I am grateful that my experience was not that way. I never felt nauseous or sick. If I hadn't been trying to get pregnant, I probably wouldn't have even known. Dave and I orginally planned on getting pregnant a few months later than we did, but my doctor seemed pretty worried that I would be able to get pregnant without fertility drugs. He suggested that I start trying earlier, so that if it didn't work, by the time I originally planned to get pregnant I could already be tyring a fertility treatment. Well, it worked the first month we tried!
Pregnancy is such a mystery because it happens differently for every woman. I personally think that a sweet spirit really needed to come to earth now and knew that the only way his/her logical and well planned out mother would even consider deviating from her plan would be to hear a message of urgency and concern from a doctor. Even though we will have a baby sooner than our original plan, we are both thrilled and so excited to be parents!
This is me 8 weeks pregnant.
This is me at the end of my first trimester- 13 weeks pregnant.
Maybe it's the dress, but it kind of seems like my belly looks bigger in the 8 week picture than the 13 week picture. :) I still don't think other people can really tell at all unless they know that I am pregnant. However, according to my pregnancy app, the second trimester should bring a huge growth sprout and along with it, a bigger belly!
