Pregnancy: Week 7
I should really label this post “impatience”. I made an appointment for an early pregnancy scan – but it’s not for another week and a half. I want to wait until after 8 weeks because I know that statistically if there’s a strong heartbeat at the 8 week scan, the chances of miscarriage reduce to less than 1.5%. And I crave that reassurance.
I wrote this post back in August when I was seven weeks pregnant, a little bit queasy and mostly very impatient. Now that I’ve made the official announcement, I’m finally publishing and sharing it.
But the days drag waiting for it. Meanwhile I have no doubt I am pregnant. I’ve had to send Charlie up into the attic for the maternity clothes because I can tell I’ll be needing them sooner rather than later. I’m hoping it’s mostly bloating right now that will disappear in a week or two – but to me, I’ve already got the makings of a little bump. Certainly jeans are a nightmare to wear because they are seriously uncomfortable around my belly. Last time I switched to maternity jeans at 12 or 13 weeks. This time, I’m already considering it! I mean they’re just sitting there. And I’m so uncomfy! 🙂
Tick tock…the wait continues.
