I feel like a terrible mother already...

So far,  I am a complete failure at documenting this pregnancy.  I've taken exactly one (1!) belly picture in the 7 weeks that I've known I was pregnant.  I haven't written in the pregnancy journal/calendar that a sweet friend gave me, either.  Maybe it's the remnants of miscarriages and struggles to stay pregnant that are holding me back, but it's driving me crazy.  I'm making myself a promise- before the weekend is over, I will take my 11 week belly picture and get that stinking journal up to date!


  1. I don't blame you for delaying. It doesn't make you a bad mom at all!! Experiencing a loss or losses somewhat steals the joy out of the early pregnancy weeks. I feel like I'm waiting for the other show to drop. 11 weeks is an amazing achievement. Believe in yourself!! Have fun and enjoy yor pics and documenting this weekend:).

  2. Waiting for the other shoe to drop not show. Darn autocorrect

  3. I am still in denial, I think. Pregnancy loss and IF makes it so difficult to embrace the early part of a pregnancy. I'm only just finally beginning to believe it (at 19 weeks) and do the things that most "normal" women start doing at 7 weeks.
