They say that with every subsequent pregnancy, you show earlier. With my first, people couldn't tell I was pregnant until 20 weeks. With my 2nd, I started to show around 17 or 18. With my third, I was popping out around 12 and noticeable around 13. I thought, with number four, maybe 10 or 11 weeks, people could start to see bump. I had heard that I would be surprised at how quickly I pop with four... apparently, four is some magic pregnancy number where crazy stuff happens.
They weren't kidding!!
I found out I was pregnant at 5 weeks. I have never tested positive until at least 5 days after I was due. It was the same this time. I thought this time, I would take a before picture. So here I am at 5 weeks:
Then I started spotting after running, so my doctor told me to stop running for a while. But then I started getting a little puffy... Here I am at week 9 and wearing maternity clothes already!!!
Week 10: poking out a little farther....
So, I am getting over my pride at feeling huge and just trying to enjoy this pregnancy for what it is. A new life that I am creating inside and a whole future of amazing possibilities!
