08 Sep And the secret is out!
Feels so good to have broken the news! Babies just bring so much joy into the world. It’s funny but it still doesn’t feel real even after telling people. Hasn’t yet sunk in that we are having a baby. Don’t judge me, I’ll get there. I’m starting to show a little and it’s a bit strange. I have never had a big belly so seeing this bulge when I’m walking around is going to take some getting used to. It just needs to pop a bit more so people know that it’s a baby because at the moment it just looks like I need to hit the gym!
I’m a bit surprised by my weight gain or lack thereof. I lost a lot of weight prior to falling pregnant and had accepted the fact that I would most likely gain it all back. 14 weeks in and only 1 KG gained. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens in the second trimester. I’m also eagerly awaiting the “burst of energy” that comes with the second trimester. I really need it. Given the choice, I could nap the entire day at the moment. For the sake of my sanity, I need to get back to being a productive and active human. That said, I’m excited for the second trimester and all that it brings. Having gone through the last couple of months I know that I’m mentally prepared for what lies ahead.
