Hey, look at that. Mostly normal facial expressions this time. Wow.
Oh, nope. There’s the stupid. Very good. Excellent.
I’m really full? I’m angry? What is happening here? Who knows.
So, did you know that as soon as you find out you’re pregnant you’re considered at least 4 weeks pregnant? The weeks are counted from the first day of your last period, so if you have a positive test right when you expect Aunt Flow to arrive that would be about 4 weeks after the start of your last period.
You’re going along, not pregnant, not pregnant… and then BAM!!! you’re zooming 1/9th of the way down the path to maternity pants, ultrasounds, crying baby(s), diapers and nursing bras (actually it’s 1/10th because an average pregnancy is 40 weeks long… so 4 weeks in you’re 10% of the way there. Look at me doing hard maths in my head).
I just wanted to share that with you because no one really tells you this little nugget of trivia. I mean, people say it in passing, but no one specifically points out, “Hey, Shauna. Don’t bother googling around for what happens in the first week of pregnancy because you’re not going to find anything. Start looking at 5 weeks. You’re already 10% of the way there, babe. There you go.”
And here we have a photo of my baby bump, my dinner and a gallon of water apparently. John made me do that. That’s real nice.
