Ahhhh! I am SO excited to finally announce that Rob and I are expecting our first little babe this October! This has been such a hard secret to keep, but of course we wanted to make sure all was well before announcing. We are definitely feeling all the feels, but most of all, we are beyond thankful that everything looks great so far. We are so excited for this new chapter to begin and we cannot wait to meet our little babe!
I personally am so excited to expand my content into the world of motherhood. Being a mom is something I have dreamed about since I was a little girl and I am so blessed to be on this new journey with my soulmate by my side. Rob is going to be the best daddy and I can’t wait to see him with our little one! Our hearts are so full right now, and I only imagine they will get fuller with time!
Now, let’s talk details! I’m officially 12 weeks today, and it’s been a crazy first trimester to say the least! You may have noticed I’ve been a little MIA, especially after posting pretty consistently in January. I’ve just been SO tired you guys. I thought I was tired before, HA. This is a whole new kind of tired. And the nausea has been killer. Like it lingers 24/7. Luckily, I never actually got sick, but feeling sick all day, every day isn’t the easiest thing to deal with as I’m sure you can imagine. It gets better as the weeks go by, so I’m hoping I get some energy back as I enter the second trimester!
With that aside, our favorite part of pregnancy so far was getting to see our little babe on the ultrasound for the first time! Rob and I both cried. It’s such a surreal feeling that I can’t put into words. It made everything seem so much more real! Rob literally cried more during that appointment than he did on our wedding day 😜 but I couldn’t ask for more. He is SO excited to become a dad and I know he’s going to be the absolute best.
I’m going to do a few polls on insta stories to gauge your level of interest in pregnancy related posts, so make sure you’re following me over there if you aren’t already. This is a whole new world for me, but I’m open to sharing my experience if that’s something you girls are interested in! I know I love reading pregnancy and motherhood related posts, so I’m hoping you guys do too! With that said, I will follow up with a Q&A post next week! If you have any specific questions, drop them in a comment or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will be sure to answer next week!
