WE'RE HAVING A BABY!!

WE'RE HAVING A BABY!!

 

It really is happening.  I'm still absolutely overwhelmed with joy.  

Everyday, I've been saying to myself, "Is this happening?! I'm really going to be a mom!"  It's pretty much a dream come true.  Honestly, I've been waiting for this moment.  I've always wanted to start our own family and funny as it is, I've been with my husband for almost 8 years and so when we first told our family last week, they were beyond happy-  overjoyed for us.  They all knew we wanted to start a family one day, but they also knew that we weren't in any rush.  We wanted to take our time and feel good at where we're at with our lives to say to each other, "okay, let's see what happens!"  ...so the question that everyone has to ask, was it planned?  Yes and no!  Yes, in the sense that, beginning September of last year, we decided let's "see what happens".  But no, in the sense that, it is still a HUGE surprise.  6 months later, I found out that-  "Hey!  My body is really doing this, a little mini-me is growing in my belly"  It's pretty remarkable.  A woman's ability to give birth and just how things can just change in a blink of an eye.  So, with that said-  I wanted to share my experience with our friends and invite all of you to follow our story!  

Our very 1st ultrasound ... lil' nugget was very small here.  About 4-5 weeks!!  We were lucky that our doctor had really good equipment to get an ultrasound this early.  We even saw the flickering of the heartbeat. ( !! )

This was a very exciting day for both of us.  The pregnancy was confirmed.  We celebrated at one of my favorite spots for wine & cheese-  ha, even though, I opted for nether of those, I love the ambience over at Bottlehouse.  I did have yummy olives and ginger beer and Ben had a summer ale.  

 

This was our 2nd ultrasound at about 9 weeks!  Nugget is growing!!

I'm currently almost 13 weeks now and couldn't be feeling any better.  I've had such a good 1st trimester- no complaints at all.  Little nauseous here and there, but nothing too extreme.  I feel very fortunate.  I have my 3rd appointment this Monday!   More updates soon.  xoxo
