If you follow me on social media you already know what’s coming….
Our first little one!
We announced it publicly announced two weeks ago after I finally told my work and all family had been informed. It made it really really real.
And funny enough the little one’s anticipated due date is in April 2018, within a week of both of our birthdays! April is going to be an even busier month from here on out each year.
I’m 16 weeks along now and I’ve known since week 4 so I’ve gone through a lot of changes and emotions and am settled on happy and excited and feeling good.
Weeks 4-12 were not fun and I decided I hate pregnancy during that period (sorry kiddo). Between constant cramps, nauseau all the time, general lack of any energy and some other unpleasant symptoms I just really hated the experience of being pregnant. I kept asking why anyone does this when it feels so miserable every day. In the beginning it felt like I had been pregnant for years instead of weeks.
Thankfully that started to subside at week 12 and by week 14 I felt relatively decent. I guess the second trimester really is the golden period of of pregnancy!
Now that I’m feeling better we are starting to plan ahead for real…
I just made a baby registry.
We are planning a gender reveal for next month.
We’re saving money for the birth and daycare and all that fun stuff that we haven’t really figured out but have a vague idea about it.
Basically, I have no idea what I’m doing but I’m working on figuring it out. :)
