Well, we’re hitting a point where I’m starting to feel like this little bugger’s really going to stick around. We’re almost at 12 weeks and I’m getting antsy to start telling family and close friends.
I definitely don’t feel like I’m showing yet, but I am feeling a bit bloated. Food aversions are getting a bit better, but I’m still not ready to eat salad again. I’m slowly making my way back to eating normally, which is why I’m only down one pound instead of almost three.
We have our 12 week appointment with my doctor this week, but since she’s three hours away, I really need to find someone in Chicago. The hunt is on, most likely for a midwife because I feel like a midwife will be more understanding of my journey and our approach to this whole fertility thing than a typical OB would be.
