Am I the only one that because i find out relatively early that I'm pregnant that it seems way loooooooonger than nine month and i get so anxious. I see other ppl get pregnant and have their baby in a blink of an eye and i get sooooo jealous. I feel childish as I write this, but really am i the only one guys?
Nope!! You are quite normal!! I found out about my first boy at about 5 weeks and it was a loooong pregnancy for me. I think you don't see other people daily and so when you run into them after a while, you can see lots of change in their stomach size and before you know it, they are having their baby. With yourself, it's a little harder to notice all the changes and daily life can get pretty boring sometimes. When are you due?? Hang in there!
Isn't it funny how time slows when we are waiting on something, but when we want it to slow down it seems to speed up!?! I so hear what you are saying,
Hang in there,Jess
No it is perfectly normal. I found out right at the 4 week mark with all my kids and it does make for a rather long pregnancy. But I feel like it goes a bit faster from 16-34 weeks. Then it slows down the last month or two!!!
There is definitely nothing wrong with your question and your feeling that way. I am pregnant with my fourth child and I found pretty early also. I had an idea around 4 weeks but I officially tested around 5 weeks. This is really going to be a long pregnancy because this is the last and at 14 weeks, I look like I'm 5-6 months, have all day morning sickness and pelvic/back pains. How far along are you and when did you find out?
Ashulitax - I know it's only been a few days but wanted to check in and see how you are doing. Hang in there, would love an update when you are up to it,
oh wow thank you, i hadn't had the chance to get in front of a pc but i do get the emails of replies in my phone. I went to Dr.'s appt. and started my prenatal, im not having morning sickness per say but i do find myself eating every 2 hrs to avoid getting nauseous wich for me its a big improvement from past pregnancy. Its anyone else due in April 2014 and has anyone started looking at baby stuff yet? <3xoxo
i feel for you...i am now 25/26 weeks and its feels like forever also...i found out at about 3 weeks that i was pregnant and one of my friends was barley pregnant when i found out i was...she has already had her beautiful baby boy and i feel like december is to far away...time is going so slow, it feels like im am a kid agian waiting for christmas ; -}
Well, 40 weeks is actually about 10 months lol. I was due August 16th and had my baby on the 20th. I thought it was weird that she was late since she was my second and my first was 2 weeks early. It only feels like a long time, I think it seems that way when it's you who is pregnant. Mine seemed to go by fast this time until I had about a month to go. The days just seemed to drag on and on. Don't worry, you'll get through it.
im due in january the first week this is my second and i wish i was like u not noticing how far alomg i am lol i am showing now and i didnt wit my first and i didnt look at baby stuff till i was closer to my due date lol i find that if i start looking now im going to wish things would go alot faster lol
