I am now 13 weeks and I will have my next appointment on Monday, December 6th (14 weeks). I have started to feel a little flutter every once in a while beginning in week 12. I thought this was way too early but I am finding out that after a few babies, you begin to see and feel things a lot sooner. I now have a baby bump. I have been trying to hide it but it is no use anymore. I am still in my normal clothing for tops but I have moved to maternity pants for comfort. The morning sickness has started to subside and now only occurs every once in a while. Last night I had my first weird craving of pickles and cheese. Although it tasted good at the time, my tummy was not happy with me afterwards. Lesson learned!!
I am still stressing out about this pregnancy and I worry constantly. This seems to be in my nature. I think I will begin to feel more comfortable after this next appointment. After my 14th week appointment, I will start going to the doctor every 2 weeks so she can check my cervix and hopefully prevent any bed rest like I had with Aiden. To me, this is a blessing in disguise. I will get to have an ultrasound each appointment so I can see the progress and see the baby every 2 weeks.
Thankfully, I haven't gained any weight yet (although you can't tell because of the baby bump) due to the sickness but I am sure that will change soon.
The boys are really excited and are beginning to ask a lot of questions. Aiden is very curious as to how the baby gets out of Mommy's tummy. I am trying to be very vague right now with my answers until I can figure out what the appropriate response is. I am not sure how much to tell a 7 and 5 year old about the birthing process. Most adults don't really want to know what truely happens.
So... 13 weeks down and quite a few more to go before we get to meet this new baby.
