I’ve kept the excitement hidden from the general population for some time; although many have guessed…the reason behind my absenteeism and random awkwardness…I’M PREGNANT. Tonight we finally shared the news with the husband’s grandparents, and, of course, good ol’ Facebook. The outpouring of love and support has been unbelievable and made us feel all the more blessed.
PR and I have wanted little one for years now and just when we were beginning to cave in to the feeling of hopelessness there was the positive pregnancy test that rocked our socks out of no where. It’s unbelievable and I can’t even wrap my head around it some days. No morning sickness, but night sickness, yeah, got that. The fatigue is not as bad as the first trimester, but when I want a nap I take one! Insomnia is something else I’m battling but I’ve always had issues with that. Baby always has a strong heartbeat and I already cannot wait to see this little face in the Spring!! We find out in 2.5 weeks whether we have been blessed with a little boy or girl. Well, hubs and I will know in 3 weeks as my sister is hosting a gender reveal party, so she will have some much coveted insider information. I’m very, very thankful to have her here for me; as well as all of our family. The only thing my heart is missing is my dad. It’s been almost 4 years since his passing but it still feels so recent in my mind. I know he would be thrilled beyond belief.
Excitement makes me ramble, so my bad! Can I also just say how excited I am to be pregnant the same time as Kate Middleton?!! As soon as I found out I was pregnant, back in July, one of the first things I said to the PR was that Kate Middleton needed to hurry up and announce her pregnancy! Lo and behold, her announcement followed weeks later. Called it! And of course, Blake Lively!! My 2 top style icons! There are so many celebs; it’s like a special club. I even have a couple of friends that are due the same week as I am; needless to say, excitement is in the air.
This is my first pregnancy so I will try and come up with some different posts related to such. If you have any suggestions or advice leave a comment below. Thank you again, to each and every one of you who have expressed your love and support. More to come…xoxoxo
