Spena Baby Week 10
I was cleaning up my bathroom at the end of last week(I obviously hadn’t gotten to the mirror yet ;)) when I caught a glimpse of my belly and startled myself. Like. Where did that come from? This is actually real?
I’ll be completely honest. My brain is still having a really, really hard time grasping the reality of my situation. I don’t know if it’s a defense mechanism. I don’t know if I’m really dense. I don’t know if it is because it feels too good to be true. Whatever it is, catching sight of my belly growing, proof that SOMETHING is happening deep inside there was/is shocking to me.
Weight Gain | Avoiding the scale, probably until my next appointment, but based off the size of the growing bump, I’m pretty sure things are….increasing around here.
Symptons | I only vomited once this week! Major praise. I’m still feeling so sick and blah, but I will gladly trade gaining a few extra pounds this go round to be able to eat and not lose it all like I did last time. Major major praise.
Missing Most | I’m very much looking forward to being able to cook again and play and keep up with Abigail like I normally do.
Size Of Baby | Date/Prune
Is it terrible that the only thing I ever think about dates is when the little monkey dies in Indiana Jones from eating poisoned dates?
Workouts | hahahaha
Clothing | Bringing my old bras back! Wooo. Thanks little prune.
I can wear all of my regular clothes but I’m mostly in yogas and comfy tee shirts this week.
Some friends of mine brought on the tears this week when they shared this picture on FB. They went to a Rend Collective concert and they have a praise wall. Out of everything they could have written a praise for they chose to write about me and the baby. I mean. Tears!
Extra tears came from last week’s episode of The Walking Dead(not the gross stuff, just the sweet stuff) and from an article in this months WORLD magazine. Full blown blubber.
Fun stuff! Your aversions sound like mine did!
Look at that sweet little bump! Grow, baby, grow! So glad you're feeling better! Only throwing up once is a win in my book!
You look so adorable! Thanks for sharing these updates. It's a great way to share how we can all still be praying for you. 🙂
So sweet! Don't you just love getting to pull out those old bras again? Haha 😉
How fun! Definitely with you on the showing faster thing. I am almost 20 weeks and I am massive. I didn't look this big with my daughter until like…23-24 weeks. NUTS I tell you!
I'm so happy for you. Such a sweet little bump!!! 🙂 You're looking fantastic
Ooh I love seeing that little bump pop out! Hopefully you are feeling much better in just a few more weeks!
Yay for a little bump! LOVE it!
What a sweet praise!!! You look great! Hope the aversions stop.
You guys have a lot of fun things going on!! Enjoy!! 🙂
So sweet – love that your friends included you and baby Spena on the praise wall! It's totally normal to feel a bit, well, disconnected I think when you've been through what you guys have been through. After you've suffered losses, it's just hard to believe that you're finally getting exactly what you wanted and prayed for for so long. I do know some degree of what you're feeling, sweet girl! But that little babe is growing away – grow baby grow!:)
Yay. Dude if you saw me at 18 weeks with my first you would die. I was RIDICULOUS. Oh wait, maybe you have it's on my all about me page :). Anyways your bump is adorable. I definitely agree that the bump with #2 is definitely more of a bump than a bloat sooner than with #1. Bad news is things don't go back together quite as nicely as they did the first time. But really who cares. Two pieces are over-rated and they are oh so worth it. Hope you are feeling good and have a fantastic week.
Without a doubt I am so incredibly happy to be reading these posts. Ellie and I praise Jesus for your gift every night in our prayers!!
That teeny tiny little bump is just the sweetest sight!
Praying that the sickness fades away quickly!
I feel like the first trimester of pregnancy is the "is this for real stage." You know the test said yes and you have some symptoms but you can't wait for the bump and movement! You look great!
I'm happy to hear you are starting to feel better and are keeping things down. "Morning" sickness sounds terrible. Such a sweet praise from your friends!
Such a sweet praise, and so happy to hear you are doing well! So excited for you!!
You look great!
ahh congratulations!!! what a cute little bumpy!!
Aww that praise written by your friends brings tears to my eyes too! SO awesome!!!
