Coming Out of the Fog

I had a couple of weeks there when I didn't feel like doing much. I was totally unmotivated to do house work, or work on much of anything. I didn't even turn on my camera for about 2 weeks.
I realized the other day that it's probably pregnancy anxiety.
This is my 7th pregnancy.
My first was ectopic, which I found out at a routine OB when they couldn't find a heartbeat at 10 weeks.
The last three were all very brief. Most of my friends and family don't know about them, but they're always there in the back of my mind.

Today I had my 12 week OB appointment and heard the heartbeat after an agonizing wait of 15 seconds which felt like 5 minutes.
Everything is going well, I'm healthy, the heartbeat is strong and fast.
I can feel the fog lifting.
And just in time for fall.
I hope to be here every day for the rest of the week to share some fall photos, and get back into the swing of things.

See you soon


  1. Jess, I send hugs! I'm so glad things are going smoothly and I can't wait to meet your little one in the spring! I will even fly with El Monstro to come see you! :)

  2. so glad you're feeling better and so sorry you've had to go through this..... don't forget that dark chocolate helps prevent preeclampsia!!

  3. Gah, was signed in under my husband's account. Glad to hear things are progressing smoothly, I've had several early miscarriages and sympathize with your anxiety.
