Time does seem to be flying by. I can't believe we're at 15 weeks already. And I must say, while when I first found out I was pregnant, I was DYING to get that baby bump, now I think I'm glad I don't have it yet. I'm sure it will come all in good time, and stick around for much longer than I could have imagined. So, I'm okay with not looking pregnant just yet. I hear people start showing anywhere from super early on, to like 25 weeks! But everyone is different, different body types, height, weight, everything, so who knows when it will happen for me. I thought since I'm short (5'4") that I would show sooner, but I guess not. I'll keep you updated. Especially since most of my friends/family are across the world and will not actually get to see me!
Big things to look forward to: In 3 weeks we will get to hear our baby's heartbeat for the first time. We have SEEN the heartbeat on the ultrasound (160 bpm) but have yet to actually hear it. We had our first midwife appointment at 10 weeks, and she tried to let us hear the heartbeat but she couldn't find it. She said it was pretty hit or miss that early on (and I tried desperately not to worry every day until the ultrasound to show me everything was ok). But anyway, at this next midwife appointment she will try again with the doppler, and I'm sure we'll hear it this time! And then, one week after that is our big ultrasound, where YES, we WILL be finding out if it's a boy or girl. I like surprises, but I like knowing and planning much better. :)
I need to start figuring out ways to incorporate pictures on these pregnancy posts. I just keep writing and forget all about pictures! Next time, I promise
