I know I did an update at the beginning of the week so I’ll make this short and really focus on my bump pic:
Somewhere along this journey recently, my bump has grown.
Roo is getting stronger and bigger! I’m loving it. Though, yesterday, I noticed that Roo wasn’t moving much and it made me nervous. I called the doctor since I hadn’t felt her all day since the night before. The nurse had me lay down and drink some juice and sure enough Roo started to kick and move around though a lot lighter than usual. Today, she’s back to her usual self kicking quite hard and having a ball in there 🙂
I tried on some maternity clothes at H&M yesterday and got really frustrated. I’m clearly not the same size anymore. I thought that the sizing guidelines were to try on maternity clothes in the same size as when not pregnant. Well, I’ve either gained a lot of weight or my body has taken on a whole new shape (ha ha clearly!). I got frustrated and need to try again another day. I think that I need to go up a size. Did this happen to anyone else too or is it just my crazy body?
This week I learned that a friend/former grad school classmate of mine is also pregnant and due with a baby girl on August 8. This now brings the total for August babies in my circle of friends to five, including Roo. I wonder what was going on in November! I’m the only one who struggled to get pregnant and had a loss. I’m so happy for everyone else though in spite of how easy it was for them including one new friend and wasn’t planning on this pregnancy – she has twin boys who are six years old. Only one of these friends know how much I struggled.
Anyway, I know that several of you, dear readers, are currently undergoing treatment with medicated IUI or IVF cycles and I’m praying and hoping that this cycle is the one that leads you to a successful pregnancy! I’m cheering you on 🙂
