I am 25% pregnant!

10 weeks pregnant!
I love Sundays lately, because it means I make the leap into the next “week,” numbers-wise.
I have been pregnant for 10 whole weeks — eight of which I knew I was pregnant for. And really, since a pregnant is (approximately) 40 weeks, I’m officially 25% of the way there. It’s like a mini-birthday for Little Baby. Maybe I should eat a cupcake on his/her behalf? Mmmm.
Now I’m officially in Week 11, which means that — God-willing — I’ll be safely out of the first trimester in exactly three weeks: Sunday, November 29 is the start of Week 14.
I am really, really really looking forward to that day. I have not talked about my fears too much on this blog, because I don’t even like acknowledging them, but the truth is that I’ve been really scared of miscarrying.
I know it can happen so easily in the first 13 weeks, and it’s hard not to think about it. Sometimes when I start thinking about how things will be a few months down the road, I stop myself — because I don’t feel safe “thinking ahead” yet. The idea of losing Little Baby is so devastating that I can’t put it into words.
So all I can do is keep-keepin’ on — and treading carefully — and pray that I will make it out of the first trimester safely.

  1. Those thoughts are totally normal–I felt the same way. Just try to focus on the postive. Whenever I'd start worrying about all the things that could go wrong I would just repeat to myself, “I have EVERY reason to believe this is a healthy pregnancy. I have every reason to believe this is a healthy pregnancy…” Hope that helps, and best wishes to you on the next 29 weeks!
