Joining the Club

I may be almost 9 weeks pregnant (and entering my third month, I might add), but I don’t feel pregnant. I feel the same as I did before, with the added cramping and weight gain. And, I don’t feel like I belong in the “pregnant club”.

Dealing with the inability to get pregnant on my own and watching all my friends and family members get pregnant and have children before me has really done a number on me. Even though I’m now pregnant, and loving the thought of my baby growing inside me, I get jealous when I see other pregnant women. I don’t know why. I’m one of them now. Yet, I feel the same as I did before I got pregnant and I ran into pregnant women.

I’m counting down the weeks until I pass from the first to second trimesters. I don’t want to wish my pregnancy to speed away, but I’m ready to move on past the point of worrying and to the time when I’ll really start to feel and look pregnant. Maybe then I’ll feel like I’m in the club.

    Those first few weeks were so hard for me. All the worry. I woke up every morning and my first thought would be ‘Do I still feel pregnant?’

    It’ll soon pass and then you’ll wonder if you ever won’t be pregnant. šŸ˜‰


  3. that last month you will feel like you have been pregnant forever…… I swear I was pregnant for 9 years with my third instead of 9 months!

    So glad to see you have a sprout. Hope s/he spreads through the early trimesters and gets well established šŸ™‚

    I’m guessing that you’ll look pregnant soon enough. Then you can start complaining about swollen ankles and back aches, right? šŸ˜›

    You’ll start to ‘feel’ pregnant once you start to feel the baby move. It’s so frustrating waiting that long though.
