Pregnancy Week 16- Contemplating The Unknown.
It’s somewhere between week 16 and week 17 of my pregnancy, and I have found myself asking far too many “What If’s”.
I cannot deny it, I am brilliant at worrying myself half to death about nonsensical things that need not worry me at all.
Yet even knowing that I put myself through this stress, I still bloody do it.
One of the biggest What if’s that has been playing on my mind is the constant worry that the baby is not growing properly inside me.
I haven’t heard the baby’s heartbeat since the 12 week scan, the last doctor I saw didn’t even try to put the Doppler machine on my tummy.
I worry because people cannot tell I am pregnant yet. I mean, I know I am, I know my body is changing a little bit each day, but to everyone else I just look the same.
All the apps I have on my phone and the internet sites that I read suggest that at 17 weeks you should be flaunting your precious baby bump.
Except being larger, I don’t exactly have the ‘bump’ yet.
So here I am stressing over the well-being of my tiny bub, wishing time would speed up in order for me to get to the next scan to have a peak.
It is likely that there is nothing wrong at all, if anything both scans we have had so far have shown bub to be a week bigger than my certain dates yet my mind still wanders…
Am I obsessing over something silly? For sure.
The pregnant mind works is such mysterious ways…
Have you or do you pay much attention to all the different kinds of Pregnancy Apps you can get on your mobile phone, and which one do you believe is the best?
