Yeah I wasn’t surprised, but it was still a bit weird seeing it confirmed.
I did a first trimester YouTube exercise video this morning (before I knew for sure) so that says a lot. I also did one two days ago…
Another weird thing is last time and this time, I felt a need to lie on my front in bed? I feel like I don’t really lie on my front. Maybe it’s an evolutionary thing to protect your stomach? Maybe it’s just all in my head?
I have always loved her, but my love for her has been stronger lately.
Since having B I also find it harder to read sad news stories about kids, but in the last week I have got more emotional – especially about the 5 year old who was the sole survivor of a cable car crash. Even now my eyes are welling up thinking about it.
When I was pregnant with B I had a period, and when I was pregnant earlier this year I had had my period, so it now being this late seemed like a clear sign.
Our first night away in 7 months! And yeah so much stuff to do.
I did ask Tiago if we should do it before our trip, but he said ‘nah wait’, which I was relieved about. I knew I was pregnant, but if we had had it confirmed before the trip it would have felt like we were hiding a big secret, and Tiago is not great with secrets (bless him).
Everything was set up to take the picture in the same way that I have been doing since we started to try to get pregnant again.
(5th August: The title isn’t a mistake. It references a similar picture I took called ‘Here We Go Again’ in January after I got a positive pregnancy test. I look more shocked in that photo though.)
Here it is:
It is nice to have something to countdown to again. I wanted to learn to drive, but there isn’t much availability. I need to start messaging people as otherwise I will not have much time at all.
It was really nothing.
I do not think I would be having all these symptoms if I was only 5 weeks, but you never know.
(5th August: I was only 5 weeks pregnant at this point (I’ve recently had a dating scan), but I wanted to believe I was more. Also based on my periods have been before when I’ve been pregnant it seemed like it might add up. I’ve decided to keep the wrong gestation and question marks in the titles as it reflects how I was feeling/what I believed.)
I have felt quite sick at times, and not so much at others. I worry that sometimes I think ‘oh shouldn’t I be feeling more sick?’ and then I feel more sick. I do not want to be sick this time though.
Fun times. I think I will be avoiding germ pits like softplay for now while I wait for it.
I do not want to spend the whole time feeling as anxious and nervous as I did last time, but I also feel like I need to be realistic about it all, especially as it is still the first trimester.

Me justifying buying nice stuff as it can be passed along = fail. Some stuff will be fine though. The baby could be quite big though – who knows?

I need to call my doctor and see what they think. A lot of the appointments are down to how pregnant you are.
I am debating what to do – this could be a new project as before when I thought I was pregnant I was doing a pregnancy project and continuing with Oh Me, Oh Mãe. Two projects is too much of a faff, especially if one is just trying to hide the fact I am pregnant for a bit longer so this is probably a new project about having a kid and being pregnant. I guess my pregnancy project, OMOM and this are all chapters of a bigger project anyways?
(5th August: I’ve just been working on this project, which shows that I am a little more sure than I was earlier this year when I was working on two. (Well, I have been making a Puke Portraits II.) It is a cross between Waiting and OMOM. I’m calling it Waiting… II for now, but it needs it’s own title. I’ll start thinking…
In the car yesterday I was imagining how it would be with two in the car.
We shall have to wait and see. Time to look after B now.
I am debating including the images/hashtags from when I was a similar gestation with B. However, I did actually manage to write a few blog posts about Waiting, so I’ll just include links to them for now.
Turns out I never did pictures for 5 weeks last time, but the first photo I took was the day after I found out at 4+ weeks so that is similar.
I thought I might as well just add the image and hashtags in. The picture is definitely more interesting than this new one, but oh well.
