The thing about weekly updates…

I love reading all the weekly updates on here that list symptoms and feelings and such. It makes me feel like I am part of everyone’s journey.

However, I am hesitant to do these for my own pregnancy because:

  1. What if something happens? That is my big one. I have the “What to Expect” Journal that I had started filling out for my son and although I have bought another one, I haven’t started writing down anything yet because I can’t bear the thought of having another incomplete book. I have all my sonogram pics so far just sitting in an envelope on the dresser for this same reason. Once I make it to 14 weeks, I will have been more pregnant than I ever have been and then maybe I may feel better about trying it.
  2. I still feel kind of guilty about this pregnancy. I feel like I can’t just ‘start over’ with this new baby…as if I just hit the reset button. I don’t know if that makes sense.
  3. My stomach is not cute. I have a pooch….well,,its a roll. I will never the one whose stomach is exposed for the mass populous to see. I also feel like because of my HUGE boobs, I’m going to make it to 7 months pregnant and still just look….fat. So the idea of belly pics aren’t really appealing to me. Even in this though, I’m conflicted. I don’t want to not document this pregnancy because of my own stupid self esteem issues.. meh.. thoughts.

Till I’m ready, keep the updates coming and I will live vicariously through all your little ones. 🙂

  1. Do what is best for you!!! The number 1 thing I regret from my pregnancy with Jackson is how much I did not document. Even though it would have been incomplete I wish I had it. I promised myself if I was ever lucky enough to get pregnant again I would document everything and take a million pictures of myself pregnant. I realized those pictures that I didn’t take were some of be only ones I would have ever had of Jackson and me. I know other women who did not document their pregnancy after a loss for a number of reasons. There isn’t a right or wrong! Do what is best for you in your given situation!
