I can’t even explain to you guys how excited I am to be writing this post! Although it’s becoming more real it’s still surreal to me that we’re actually pregnant!
I wanted to start out by saying thank you to you, family and our friends who have prayed for us and who have supported us for so long. You guys know we had a miscarriage last July and it was devastating. So to be able to announce this to you has me so gitty and feeling so blessed! It’s been hard to keep it a secret. I’ve wanted to insta-story so many times, and just talk to you all about this. It’s difficult because in the first trimester they tell you obviously to keep it to yourself but its HARD. I know that I had so many questions during the first trimester. Your brain just floods with questions. If this was normal? Is it normal to not have this symptom? Can I eat this? Is this okay for my skin? SO. MANY. QUESTIONS.
If I can’t give you any advice talk to a couple close friends. If you’re a worry wart and you need some reassurance talk to someone around you who you can trust and who’s been in your shoes. I’m so lucky to have a had a few friends of mine who were always there to listen to me and to reassured me. Thankful for you girls.
But I’m not totally sure what else other than we’re just happy. So so so so happy. I’m going to do a full first trimester update soon. I wish I had more of those to read when I was going through it. Like I said I had a lot of questions, I don’t feel like I had a normal first trimester… I wasn’t vomiting constantly like a lot there were days I felt great and was like uhh am I even still pregnant. So I’m excited to share with you guys my experience with it.
Our next ultrasound is March and we get to find out the gender. So pretty darn stoked for that.
But with all of it I’m trying to just enjoy each moment and live in the moment. At times it’s way easier said than done but I know this is such a short time and I need to make the most of it.
If you guys are pregnant or have pregnancy advice I’d love to hear it. I love you babes. xo
