We’re Having A Baby!!!

We’re Having A Baby!!!!!

You probably haven’t heard the good news yet, but we are expecting our first child this year!  It’s hard to describe but we are INCREDIBLY excited to be having a baby!  To be honest we were planning on sharing at 3 months, but then the time went by and we just weren’t ready yet.  We have kept this to ourselves and our closest family and friends because this is extremely personal and it’s been a LONG journey for us to get to this point.  It’s actually been nice to have this special moment we have wanted for so long to ourselves.  I will be blogging next week about our pregnancy journey, but for now we will leave you with a few updates.  I haven’t slept through the night once since being pregnant.  My body is ready for one feeding in-between 2-3 am (I wake up every night), now I have to add at least 2-3 more.  I’ve been living in leggings like it’s a full time job, feeling comfortable is key! 

The few things I crave the most are carbs, Stouffer’s French bread pizza (random I know) and chips.  All the bad stuff of course!  I’m trying to keep a well-balanced diet.  Putting on shoes is already a process, didn’t expect this to happen so soon.  I can’t stay up late, which was a problem before being pregnant and now it’s even worse!  My new bedtime is around 8:05pm!  I feel so old LOL. 

What will surprise you is that I’m due in June!  So soon, yay!!!  I’m already 22+ weeks along in our journey, and we are not finding out the gender.  It’s the biggest surprise of our life and we love not knowing!  And no, we have not discussed names yet.  The baby is the size of a coconut at the moment, healthy and doing well.  This past week my husband Sean got to feel the baby move for the first time!  Such an incredibly powerful moment!  I always say to Sean, “this does not feel real yet”!  I know it will when we have a screaming baby in our arms!

If you are already a parent and having any helpful tips, please comment below.  We are open to ideas and baby names
