This week, I will be 13 weeks pregnant, which means we are free and clear of the first trimester! The risk of miscarriage decreases significantly after the first trimester, so I feel like this is sort of a pregnancy “milestone!”
I’m also excited because the baby can start to hear sounds within the next several weeks and shortly after that, I will also be able to feel it moving inside of me. Right now, even after hearing the heartbeat, I worry and wonder if the baby is growing (as do many pregnant women, I’m sure). I think feeling the baby move will not only be fun and exciting, but also very reassuring for me. I’m excited for what the next few months have in store! Bring on trimester #2 🙂
If you’re looking at the photo above and thinking, “Aw, she’s already showing a little at 6 weeks pregnant,” well…I hate to break it to you, but you’re very wrong. That’s definitely not a baby bump. As much as it pains me to admit, I’m pretty sure it’s just fat that’s always been there. Now I just have an excuse for it 😉 Just thought I had better throw that out there before someone commented on it and unintentionally insulted the pregnant lady. No one wants that…which my husband can attest to.
I don’t see much of a difference between 6 weeks and 10, but I know a rapidly growing belly is likely in store for me now! Like I said, bring on the second trimester!
