18 Weeks Pregnant

I started this blog long before I was pregnant, and it was never meant to be about being pregnant, so I haven't directly mentioned a great deal of personal things about my pregnancy. I am not sure why, I guess because it feels a little too personal, and although I know how blessed I am, I don't want to upset anyone who is yet to be blessed.

However, I take a weekly photo of my ever growing stomach, and finally I am going to share it with you. Slowly, ever so slowly, it is getting there.

  1. Awwww. Your little bump is definitely taking hold. I love this cut out thing. How did you do it?

  2. I can only speak for myself obviously April – but I certainly would not, and will not stop reading your blog because you are blogging about your pregnancy. Even though I am going though hell trying to become a mother, I would always be happy for my friends – well so long as they don’t complain about being a mother every second minute of the day – that results in slaps in person, or blocks on line.

    I am really happy for you April, and no matter what the situation is of your friends, I believe they will all be happy for you to. Even just by posting what you have it shows that you are sensitive and understanding. You aren’t going to be the pregnant lady who doesn’t understand that it’s a struggle for some and that proves you aren’t rub it in our faces with ignorant comments.

    You should post about it, its an important time that you should document and be able to reflect on later in life. Be happy, because we are happy for you xox

  3. Aw thank you Cat. I guess I know what it was like, to watch people get pregnant with ease, and the pain I felt afterwards. Silly as it is, I never want to forget my struggle to get pregnant, as it makes me appreciate every single little moment, from the tiredness to the worry and anxiety of being put into hospital for an operation whilst pregnant. Every moment is a blessing.

    Melissa, I do it in photoshop. I take my photo in the same spot each week against a white wall (I have little sticky dots on the floor to mark where the tripod sits) and then edit out the white, and paint the rest with a colour. I liked this way better, as it doesn't matter how terrible I look in the photo, as long as I stand straight for 2 minutes, I am right.

  4. hey April, def tell us about your preggas!! Other people understand your joy, and know how to handle it if its a tougher time for them - me personally, I'd love to hear more about the difficulty bending, compulsion to eat more etc etc!!! hehe

  5. I am 39 and 11 weeks pregnant now. I know it is difficult to think of becoming pregnant But I am happy and nervous both...but, I am so excited and eagerly waiting to hold my cute little baby in arms. So cute!!!!18 weeks pregnant
