To follow Baby 5’s Journey Go HERE.
Hello 11 weeks.
The ultrasound is next week a couple days ( I will basically be 13 weeks) after Lachlan’s surgery ( go HERE to find out all about that). I will not lie if I did not say I am getting nervous. Only Eric and I know about the pregnancy still and I love having a little bubble. I do want to share everything with everyone as well. I never had to wait so long to make sure everything is going okay in there. I will say that my symptoms are still going strong and the bump is growing.
The biggest change this week is movement. I was feeling little bits for the past few weeks and this week it is much more pronounced. A few times a day while I am working I will feel that popcorn pop right where the baby would be. I felt movement this early for my last two babies so this is not surprising. I really hope it means everything is happy in there. I love this baby to bits. I want everything to be okay. I do not know how I am going to step into the ultrasound room without Eric. I am trying not to worry about all of this and focus on giving Lachlan tons of extra love from Mama since I know that Monday ( Feb 1st) will be a hard day for him.
That is about it. I am very tired and I am starting to worry how I will feel in my 3rd trimester. I am wanting to start planning now how to streamline cooking and prep so when baby 5 is here we can still function.
Every morning Watson cuddles with baby. It is this wonderful alone time with us 3.
