It was definitely not something I expected to happen for another few years.
January 2015 will be a whole new adventure of raising my own little human. It’s honestly quite scary. I’m currently 14 weeks 4 days pregnant and the munchkin’s heartbeat is strong and sounds amazing on the Doppler (coolest things ever invented!). It’s amazing what we can do with today’s technology.
I’ve had morning sickness (more like all day sickness) pretty much since the beginning. It’s no fun and I swear it makes you feel 100% worse majority of the time. I get pretty tired in the arvo and need a nap – but it can’t be too long of a nap otherwise I feel worse.
Boobs. Boobs are completely their own story. They go crazy with hormones and grow to the point where you can’t wear any of your pretty dresses ‘cause the zip doesn’t do up and pretty bras are a distant memory. Soon I’ll need a crane to lift them!
I did have someone tell me that staring at my boobs so much isn’t good for the baby. Have you seen these bad boys? They change practically every day!
Sleeping is fun. Trying to get comfortable is fun. Then finally you’re happy enough to fall asleep and your bladder decides it needs to be emptied again. I can put it off for a little bit, until I finally give up and venture out of my nice warm doonas and into the icy air around me.
I don’t like wearing pants at all. They annoy me to the point where I either don’t wear any or just chill in my onesie. I do miss wearing my jeans though.
They say you can’t actually feel the baby moving at the moment. However, I have odd/strange feelings around that area which pretty much has been summed up to the point that it is the little munchkin moving. Popping popcorn and butterfly kisses sounds/feels about right.
I’ve had many people ask me about the dad, and I’ll tell you this and this only: it’s complicated.
My family supports me and that’s all that matters. The little munchkin is going to be loved so much by so many people, that’s all that matters. Munchkin will have endless amounts of uncles and aunts watching over its life.
