Why I Haven't Posted

A lot has been going on since my last post. Everything is still going well with my pregnancy as far as I know. Okay, I did start to worry a little bit the last couple of days because my stomach isn't really showing anything. I do have a small pooch, but that's it. In fact, I feel like I've lost weight. I haven't weighed myself. But my appetite is not good with being nauseous the majority of the time, so I feel like I must have lost a little. I asked my mom if that was normal to not be showing yet (except for a small pooch that most people would never even notice), and she said that it is. I'm almost 11 weeks pregnant now, and she said that she didn't "show" with one of my brothers until she was about 4 1/2 months pregnant.

Okay, that made me feel better!! I guess it just seems surreal b/c I haven't had an u/s in a couple of weeks. And a visible sign of a changing, growing belly would make me feel better!

There has still been no bleeding or cramping! And I stopped my progesterone last night. Woohoo!!!

So the reason I haven't posted is because of the situation with Little Guy. I have been so engrossed with our sweet 4 1/2 month old baby. We are praying that he'll soon be adopted by us. But last week, a distant relative came forward saying that she wants him. I can't give a lot of details b/c of the confidentiality issue. But we are praying praying praying that this will not happen. We are asking God for a miracle! No one wants him to go. But our state law says that a family member (even distant) has priority over a foster parent. However, it's not over by any means. A lot of things would have to happen first. And we are praying!!!!! God can do a miracle!! God can change this situation in an instant!!!

I also hope that none of you were affected by the tornadoes in the South. We did have some bad weather, but it mostly passed us and went farther south. I feel so sad for the people down there.

Thanks to those who have checked in on me. It always warms my heart! :)

Birdie, I posted the EXACT same thing a couple weeks ago!! I was feeling a bit better and had a teeny pooch and thought it should be getting better, but like you, I wasn't eating much because of nausea. pooch has arrived lol! Hang in there, hope you get another ultrasound soon :)

Birdie, I am so thrilled that your pregnancy is progressing and your little one seems to be growing and doing well. That is amazing! I'm sorry to hear about the twist in the adoption of Little Guy. I am praying about this situation. Keep us posted (as much as you can with confidentiality issues).

It is totally normalto not have a tummy yet. I didn't with my first pregnancy until well into my second trimester.

With my current pregnancy I was quite bloated after the IVF and it never really had chance to go down so people keep commenting on how I am showing already (I'm 11 weeks now). I think it is all still bloatedness though.

It is nice when your bump properly arrives. Even better when you start feeling the baby moving and kicking!

Hope everything works out for you and you get to keep your little baby. Must be hard being a foster carer knowing that they could be taken away. Good luck.

Glad to have an update from you! Oh, your heart must almost be breaking because of Little Guy. Adopting is a beautiful thing, and every bit as difficult as TTC, but in different ways. I'll be thinking of you and hoping you will get to keep Little Guy, but hoping even more that your heart will be able to handle whatever happens.

So happy to hear from you! I'm glad you are ok, and will continue to keep my fingers crossed that everything goes your way in regards to adopting Little Guy. I know you love him so much. He is one lucky little man!

How long do you have until your next Dr. appt? It took me awhile to show with my first pregnancy, so you're not alone! If you're really nervous - could your doc get you in a bit earlier?

Thinking of you!

Oh, so hoping and praying that Little Guy will get to stay right where he is! I know you must feel such a strong bond with him and you love him so much.

Pretty soon there will be no mistaking your pregnant belly!! One day you'll look down and say WOW! :) So happy that things are going so well.
