Behold…the true reason for my lack of consistent blogging! I’m brewing up a hot fresh cup of baby, and couldn’t be more excited!
Brian and I found out about our little bubs 2 days before our wedding. I had been cramping for about 6 days and expected my period on our wedding day. I woke up early that morning annoyed, and wanted to just be sure the nasty blood witch was truly on her way. I took one of the pregnancy tests we brought with us (we did try that month, for the first time!) marched my grumpy butt to the baño, and got to work. Literally 3 seconds after I peed on the stick a beautiful set of dark lines appeared confirming there was indeed a bun in the oven. Cue the insta-tears as I started smile-bawling to myself in the bathroom. Brian had heard me unwrap the test (I was trying to be sneaky) and asked what it said. I came out beaming and showed him the test! He was endlessly excited too as you can see.
I 100% did not think the test would be positive. I felt more pregnant MANY times before when I indeed was not with child. I’m so glad our little angel was able to be with us as we got married (though I wish the baby bloat hadn’t already arrived). It made our day and honeymoon all the more special.
We decided to keep our news a secret till we passed the dreaded first trimester. Then Christmas was so close we decided to wait till then to reveal to our families in a fun way. You only have your first baby once! I’m so glad we waited! The reveal was so much fun.
Our little girl is expected to arrive June 10th. I’m nearing 17 weeks along and can’t wait to start feeling her (for sure feeling her) move. So far I’ve been deathly tired and nauseous but I vomit infrequently (hallelujah).
I hope all of your holidays were as fabulous as ours!
