I also wanted to share my 4 weeks postpartum belly pic- can't believe I'm already almost back to my old self, especially after a c-section.

Jessie, you look awesome! I wish I would have looked like that pre-pregnancy Nora is adorable... she just looks like such a happy baby!


I am in the middle of week 19.. we have our big ultrasound appointment in a week and a half.... and time just seems to be crawling soooo slowly. I want to be confident enough to start planning some of the things, thinking about the nursery and such... but I just can't do it.

We went out with neighbors last night for movie and dinner, and it was lovely until I got drilled where we would register, when I would have the baby shower, etc. I just can't think about these things. We have been trying to conceive for so long... I've been to so many sad baby showers, glanced jealously at so many pregnant women... I am still not sure if I am making this whole pregnancy thing up or not because it seems so unreal. It probably doesn't help that I don't and have not felt sick, no weird cravings, I have barely gained any weight yet (I do have a bump, though).

Yesterday I saw a pregnant lady while grocery shopping and my stomach immediately sank and I went to go the other way until it dawned on me that I shouldn't feel sad - I am pregnant, too! So Babies'r'us and such stores just send me back to all those times I picked up things from someone else's registry... I just don't want to do it and I can't shake it. And nobody seems to understand.

Wow! I haven't posted in a lonnnng time. All the people who were pregnant last time I was on now have growing babies! Congrats to all of you.

Ryland is 13 months old now. I'm single and going to school full time, working part time in Dallas. Going along great. Most recent photo I have of him:

Jules, I felt the same way. Even though Lillian was unplanned and I hadn't tried, after 2 miscarriages and with endometriosis it seemed unreal. I didn't tell anyone until I was like 5 months pregnant. I refused to buy baby things until around 7 or 8 months.

(((((hugs))))) That would be so so hard. Have you considered talking to someone? I went to a therapist after miscarrying and I honestly think she saved my marriage. Pregnancy is hard and the hormones and feelings around all of it (including prior losses or infertility issues) make it infinitely more difficult.

If it helps though - I didn't have any cravings either. Have you felt the baby moving yet? That's when it got real for me (and then real annoying as she spent a good majority of her time crammed inside my rib cage having a dance party).

I completely understand. I had a hard time being confident about my pregnancy as well. In the beginning, I told myself I'd be comfortable once I hit 12 weeks... then once I hit 12 weeks I still wasn't, so I thought by 20 weeks I'd definitely be comfortable, and once I hit that I was still nervous about potential loss... and I was nervous up until I delivered. I always felt like being "more" pregnant would make me less fearful- I wish that I stopped and enjoyed my entire pregnancy because I LOVED being pregnant besides fearing the tiny tiny chance of something potentially going wrong.

I guess I felt that it was such a fluke that I was actually pregnant and it wasn't going to last. I had a chemical pregnancy in the past, so I went through the excitement of getting a positive result and then having it go away.

Even when we decorated her nursery when I was 8 months along, I still couldn't shake the feeling. I felt the more stuff I bought or did would make the pain of a loss even higher because then it would be more "real."

So... my advice would be to try to relax and realize the chance of everything going smoothly is WAY WAY WAY higher than something going wrong. You've already made it 19 weeks and there's no reason that you won't have a beautiful baby at the end. The worrying really takes away from the enjoyment of the moment.

Nice belly shot! Are you doing any photo documenting of your bump as it grows/changes? It's something I'd love to do when I'm preggers I think.

So, you know how I mentioned that DH was suddenly thinking we needed to wait a while? Well he recalculated a few things and it looks like we are looking at TTC starting in February. Excited/terrified.

The really neat thing is that he's mentioned a bit of parental desire for the second time ever while we were chatting - very cool to hear. And he already bought a book on fatherhood. lol
