Helper number 2, which has been a wonderful reference for me so far, is this lovely book, written by someone who understands all the questions and concerns that run through a hormonal pregnant lady and put those worries to ease through this book:
I am sincerely grateful for the lovely lady who decided to write this book, because it is has been a great constant quick guide that I turn to all the time!
Along with this lovely helper of a book, I recently discovered that there is a website that goes along with it and is just as insightful and helpful! And today I learned of this new fun news in case you care to know at my 7 weekish mark:
"Your baby is now about the size of a blueberry (and about 10,000 times bigger than he was at conception). Most of that growth is concentrated in the head as new brain cells are generated at the rate of 100 per minute. Your baby's mouth and tongue are forming as arm and leg buds sprout, and those little kidneys are getting ready to do their job."
Isn't that neat to think about, I got a tiny little blueberry going on!
And of course I can't forget another helper that I came to a realization with is my lovely stretchy pants I can jump into when I get home from the day. I don't think I have gained that much weight yet, but man when my tummy feels queasy, like it usually does, the normal waist bands around my stomach do not help, so I love it when I can go home and slip into the more comfortable pants and finally breath again!
More helpers to come, especially when I work out getting a doctor, and all those lovely fun, different experiences, which I'll be sure to up date on. Enjoy the journey- this is what I need to keep reminding myself !
