13 weeks, 5 days!
13 weeks+ pregnant — so very happy, thankful, and grateful! I feel good — still have bouts of nausea and exhaustion, but they are few and far between in comparison to early pregnancy. I was worn out last weekend from a long week of work and driving to and from Northern VA for a conference, so took a wonderful nap on Saturday and relaxed most of the day. We also went to the movies to see Batman 😉
We also started telling grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins this week. Our parents, brothers, sisters, and close friends already know and have followed and supported us throughout our IVF journey, which has been amazing. Even though so many people know, it’s still so exciting to share our wonderful news — it’s a bit surreal to say the words “I’m pregnant” out loud, but I love saying it! We haven’t posted anything to Facebook yet, but I think we will soon.
My belly is also starting to grow – it’s so weird to have belly! I have always worked out so hard to have a flat tummy, and now I just love watching my belly grow! I feel like my bump is so obvious, but I can still hide it a little bit with the right clothing. To be honest, I love showing it off to the world :-).
