That’s right, I’m pregnant! I am so excited to share the news with you, Mario and I are expecting our first baby.
I’M PREGNANT!! BABY ANNOUNCEMENT
Yippppeee! I am so so excited to finally share our baby announcement with you. Mario and I shared this a little over a week ago on Instagram and Facebook so I am finally catching up here too. We are expecting our first baby in December and are so so excited. It’s been just the two of us for over eight and a half years, so we thought it was about time we added to the fam! I’m pregnant! YAY!
HOW I’VE BEEN FEELING
As I type this I am in my 18th week, so I am feeling good and overall just excited to be able to share. I thought for months about nothing but our baby and of course couldn’t share it with you till it felt right. The first trimester was full of ups and downs, I basically spent a lot of time on the couch resting. But having said that, I’ve been good too, particularly mentally. It’s just been so exciting, I’ve felt calmer than ever and just overall so so happy. For every day that brought nausea, I was also happy that it meant things were happening and growing.
We found out I was pregnant in April, and have slowly told family and friends since then before sharing on our social media. It’s been so nice to have all of the support and love so far! Thank you to those who sent me messages and left comments, I was so overwhelmed it ended up taking me days to reply. Hence why this blog post is going up later than I’d hoped!
MORE TO COME ON YOUTUBE
I have a YouTube video going live today sharing snippets of the first trimester and will accompany this with a more detailed blog post too. A first-trimester recap if you will. Essentially, during those quiet weeks at home alone, I found watching other YouTube videos journaling the first trimester comforting, it made me more reassured. So, I wanted to share a little of my own experience too. It’s not all high energy but I am happy I filmed a little all the same.
GOT ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME?
There will be plenty more to share as I do a Q&A with Mario, share the baby bits and pieces I have been ordering and of course, later on setting up a nursery and more. So much more. It goes without saying that my blog isn’t going to become baby content central but much like I share beauty posts, I will work some family-based content in here and there. Thank you so much in advance for your support with this new journey! I can’t wait to share it all with you. If you have any questions for me, drop them in the comments below.
