As I shared on social media this past week, my husband and I are expecting our first child December 2019! It’s been an incredible journey so far, and we’re filled with so much gratitude and excitement. This has been the HARDEST secret to keep and is such a relief now to have out in the open. We are very much looking forward to welcoming our little bundle of joy into this world, but aren’t wishing the time to pass too soon. I am looking forward to enjoying all aspects of this pregnancy, and plan to be as transparent about my experience as possible with all my readers.
I am currently 13 (almost 14) weeks along and am feeling great! I feel a little bit guilty saying this as I know a lot of women suffer unbearable pregnancy symptoms such as morning sickness, fatigue, etc. I feel very fortunate that I have had a fairly easy pregnancy thus far. Early on I had a bit of fatigue and some nausea early in the morning, but nothing too unpleasant. I had discovered I was pregnant shortly after 4 weeks.
When I had first discovered I was pregnant I was speechless. I was in utter shock as I had anticipated a negative outcome. I was completely caught off guard, I had taken pregnancy tests prior to this one and they were all negative. So, to see one that said positive was unexpected. So naturally I took 2 more just to be sure! All positive. It is hard to describe how I felt in that moment other than speechless. I was in complete shock, but in a good way. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be a Mom and have a big family. It is such a surreal feeling realizing that you are carrying another life inside you. I was shocked, elated, nervous and a little terrified; my emotions were all over the place.
Here we are weeks later, and I cannot wait to share this journey with you all. I plan to share everything from information I learn to helpful tips & tricks, registries, freebies, maternity fashion, you name it! There’s so much more I could write about, but I’ll save it for other pregnancy-related posts. That being said, I’d love to hear what types of posts you’d like to read! Leave me a comment below and let me know.
