Me (31) and DH (29): After 3.5 years of trying to conceive, including 3 years of surgeries/ infertility treatments and 3 months of "officially waiting" to adopt, we found out I am miraculously pregnant! Our son was born June 9, 2012 and we are so thankful for this gift!
For comparison...the first "belly picture" I made my husband take of me at 5 weeks (he thought I was crazy but he is already glad we did it, haha) and a self portrait I took at 8 weeks:
I have read that it is still way too early to have a "baby belly" but that there is "bloat" in the first trimester instead. It looks like I have it?! Craziness. I really don't expect to show early since I have a *very* long torso, but I'm surprised I do have the bloat anyway!
Size of baby: Raspberry (.63" and .04 oz)
Total Weight Gain: +1
Continuing symptoms: mild cramping off and on, gassy, br.east tenderness & enlargement
New symptoms this week: first heartburn experience
well but waking up earlier than normal many days. I tend to toss and turn more and don't feel as comfortable all night.
What I'm Eating: Anything! Thankfully I am having no aversions and my appetite is normal. I do tend to feel full faster and get starving -hungry more suddenly.
Special pregnancy moments: Telling a couple more close friends and seeing them tear up with happiness. Feeling less anxious about the pregnancy and enjoying it more. My husband kissed my "belly" for the first time.
