This week I officially feel pregnant. I hold my belly as I go upstairs and occasionally need help getting off the couch. And for the first time in my entire life I can see the bottom of my belly button. It's all a little weird. 

I can feel the baby wiggle and roll all the time. Sometimes it wakes me up in the middle of the night, which freaks me out until I remember that I have a human growing inside me. Which doesn't really do the trick to calm my nerves, but nerves aren't easily calmed when dealing with 2 am lunacy (I was positive we were getting robbed last night by two pipe shaped spiders...positive). 

I've been seeing strangers smile at me in the store and a few brave enough to ask me about my pregnancy. 
People ask me all the time how I feel. Hungry. I feel hungry.
People ask how far along I am. I don't remember. 21 or 22 weeks now. I think. 
People ask what I'm having. I find out in one week! 
If people asked me where the nearest restroom is, I could always tell them. Always.

I'm starting to bond with this little baby inside. We lay in bed in the morning poking each other hello. I know when it's awake and talk about what I'm doing. He or she wiggles when he/she hears Husband's voice. 

So I am officially pregnant. It's sinking in. I'm pretty excited to meet our little baby Wright. Scared too. Along with feeling them all the time has come a dose of reality that is terrifying, so I bought some shoes today to deal with that :). 

How do you deal with stress and changes? When did you really feel pregnant? Any advice to calm some nerves?

  1. I didn't feel officially pregnant until we found out we were having a boy. Than shiz got real because we knew what we were having and it just solidified it all in my mind. That was at 18 weeks. I didn't officially feel physically pregnant until 21 weeks when my belly popped. Hang in there! It's really not that scary or that bad, I promise!
