Pregnant & Posting: 20 weeks

After quite a wait, we finally got a look at the little peanut that I've been carrying around for the past 20 weeks.

Pregnant & Posting: 18 & 19 weeks

It's been an exciting and also unexciting couple of weeks. Life is changing, as it often seems to do.

At my last doctor's appointment I had gained a couple of pounds. My care provider was okay with this because it puts me back on the way to my pre-pregnancy weight. My partner was able to come to my appointment with me this time. We got to hear the heartbeat again.

If you've wanted/needed to use emergency contraception, have you had any trouble getting it?

Pregnant & Posting: 12 & 13 Weeks

On the positive side, during the last week to week & a half, I've been feeling better.

While I know it seems superficial, my biggest complaint right now is about clothing.

Physically, I'm feeling much the same as I was last week. Although the fetus is around an inch and a half long now, I don't think my look has changed much yet. I have switched over to maternity pants because it is simply more comfortable. The nausea and tiredness are still there, as is the anxiety. But hopefully some of that should wane in the next few weeks.

This week, I've been thinking more about the social implications of pregnancy and I'd like to talk a bit more about that.

I think I feel more pregnant this week. It's amazing the impact that something the size of a grape can have on a person's body & life.
