Today is our 8th week bump-date! Yay, we’ve made it 8 weeks! It’s also my first day back on night shift…and we will see how that goes!
What’s new this week?!
Well first off, we have arms! Yes, the boys have developed arms. This upcoming week we should have placenta development, and possibly some movement at our next ultrasound.
I still have days in which I don’t feel pregnant. And I also have days where I feel overwhelmingly pregnant, like today. Every food makes me nauseous, every movement is exhausting, and I honestly just want to go back to bed. None the less, our hope is the pregnancy continues to develop well.
So far the pregnancy has been ups and downs, mostly ups. I’ve noticed this pregnancy has made me much more nervous and panicky about losing the pregnancy. I’ve pondered this, perhaps it’s because of Zoram wanting to have his own bloodline. Or, maybe it’s the amount of money we’ve invested into the process. Either way, every day I don’t feel pregnant I’m in a mini panic!
I’ll admit I’ve gone shopping for some maternity clothes, dresses and such. I have noticed that this pregnancy has made me feel quite bloated at times and jeans cutting into my stomach makes me feel even more miserable. So if you catch me in a dress, just know it’s out of comfort not for style.
Additionally, Zoram picked out a color for the boys nursery… he needs to move boxes and what not out of their first, but okay. I’m glad he’s really on board for this pregnancy and is involved so much.
That’s all for this week! Make sure to check in next Sunday for our 9th Week Bump Date! We can’t wait to see what the ultrasound reveals.
PS – Babies are now the size of kidney beans (with arms)!
