It's the first day of spring, or so they say. The weather, on the other hand, is telling me otherwise. I woke up this morning to a flurry of snowflakes and temperatures in the 30s. But it looks like this might be winter's last shot, so I'll push through and look forward to warmer days ahead—and at least one thing spring has brought with it's arrival is a baby bump :)
The first few months of a pregnancy are always a weird season for me, physically, and if I'm honest, emotionally, too. Physically my body is changing. Pounds are added to my tummy, and I'm getting soft around the edges. My clothes become a little tight and uncomfortable, but I can still squeeze into them. And someone who doesn't know me well, probably wouldn't guess that the weight gain is because there's a baby growing inside me. Emotionally I know there's a baby in there, and I've even seen his picture and heard his heartbeat a few times. But I haven't felt him move, and I can't exactly see the form of a baby bump, just a lumpy bump ;)
But at 17 weeks, I'm starting to look like I'm pregnant, and I'm now feeling Connor's little body wiggle inside me every day. It's a pretty good feeling to reach this milestone. Bring on the bump!
