Week Ten, Blessed

We now have a fetus, rather than an embryo! It is very exciting to be past the critical development phase. Now that we are on the downward slide to 12 weeks and our next scan, I am getting excited to tell people and to start buying the many things we need.

I really hope the fatigue will drop off enough to allow me to do some gentle Pilates again. My neck is really struggling without it, to the point of keeping me awake and waking me frequently in pain. I am off to the physio today, so I am pleased about that.

It is rather shocking that I have a baby growing inside me. It is something I have always dreamed of and known I’d do, but to actually be pregnant is something else. Despite being earth-shatteringly exhausted, sore and the rest of it, it somehow feels, deep in my core, worth it.

Of course I am nervous about a great many things. Number one is how I am going to manage physically with fibro/chronic fatigue, baby and a job. Though, I do know the number one priority will be baby and then my health, the rest has to fall into line. For now, I have to focus on continuing to grow her/him and keep her/him safe.
