Drumroll please… ta dah! Here it is –> the long awaited for 1st baby bump picture. :) We took this a little over a week ago. And, all I can say is… I’ve grown (in many places) since! I think I’m a little bigger everywhere – LOL – face, butt, belly, legs, you name it… it’s all good though because I’ve got my little monkey growing in me.
My weight gain is normal according to my midwife (I’ll introduce her to all of you in a future post soon – she’s wonderful). I haven’t been doing much exercise during this pregnancy, but that is going to change now. I’m committing to a 1-2 mile walk 4-6 days a week.
As of this writing, I’m about 15 weeks, 6 days along. I’m past the all-day-nausea (whew!) but I have had some headaches (on and off) during the past 10-12 days. At first I thought they were from allergies because many others had them, but they just didn’t feel like that. They feel hormonal, almost sick-like… hard to describe. My neck and upper back have been cracking a lot, too, so maybe my posture hasn’t been very good. I’ve heard that many women (naturally) find themselves hunching over a bit when they’re pregnant, in a protective way. I’ll work on reminding myself to sit up / stand up straight.
