This month your baby is the size of a blueberry.
Cute, tiny but not blue and also not edible. Bad joke?
Anyways this month you are probably just finding out that you are pregnant! Congratulations! You probably just peed on a pregnancy test and hopefully you aren’t still holding it because you are probably getting pee everywhere. Unless you are a clean stream pee type - then you are fine. Okay put the test down. Let’s dive into this month shall we!?
Your nerves are probably all over the place as finding out that you are pregnant can be so many things. Positive, negative or neutral. But understand no matter how you are feeling right now in this moment you are entitled to feel that way. Never kick yourself for feeling a certain way. Sometimes we want and want and want and when we finally get it’s - Oh no. Why am I not as happy as I thought I was going to be. Give it time. You are just freshly pregnant let it sink in!
Tiny little blueberry ball of cells of a baby. Sometimes women experience implantation which can be hit or miss as not everyone experiences it. I did. With my third. It was so weird! It was roughly 6 days before my period was due [on thanksgiving to be specific] it wasn’t much but it was enough to say “weird! What is this!” then I went about my day and low and behold it was implantation spotting! After implantation has occurred cells are developing into the umbilical cord, the amniotic sac is getting ready and so much more! It may not seem like much but things are busy inside and it is about to get so much busier as the months go on!
Your Body- What is happening.
Sometimes not much of anything and that is okay. With all three of my children I knew right away as soon as my period was late because everything hurt. My boobs. Cramping was different and the nausea. Oh the nausea. But it is different for everyone and you have to keep that in mind! It is important that you don’t have the mindset of “oh I must not be sick yet something might be wrong” because if you think that way it will eat you alive!
If you do have symptoms some of the most common symptoms are : sore breasts, frequent urination, the spotting [implantation if it does occur] and nausea/vomiting.
What you should do this month.
Make an appointment with a healthcare provider even if you don’t know what route you want to go as far as where you want to birth or how you want to birth just be seen make sure you are healthy and all is well! Figure out the rest as you go.
Take your prenatal vitamins. You can buy them over the counter. Amazon. Your healthcare provider can write you a prescription.
Until next month!
Now that we really aren't allowed to hang out with people due to COVID It is clear who was a real friend and who wasn't. I hear from NOBODY and I am lonelier than ever.
i'm so tired of friendships that feel like a game. if you are my friend, be consistent.
I judge other parents for spanking their kids. I don’t think we should be able to hit children. Even our own. Children need more rights.
