Omg! Omg! Omg! Omg! I can’t believe I’m writing this post! But, it’s true! We’re having a baby! Like a real one – with tiny fingers and toes and everything! Needless to say, we’re over the moon excited!
We’ve put off starting a family for many years so that we can do more traveling, focus on our work and enjoy married life, just the two of us. But recently, we decided we were ready – so here we are, 13 weeks along! We’re due mid-March 2014 and we can’t wait to welcome this little baby into our family.
Diamond is excited too. She’s been snuggling up closer than usual lately, I think it’s her way of saying hi little fella, we’re going to be good friends. We’ll be finding out the gender very soon and I’ll be sure to share the news. The reality of knowing we’re going to be mommy and daddy to someone in the near future brings on all sorts of emotions. We’re thrilled and scared and completely ready (or not) for whatever crazy, fun mess we’ve just gotten ourselves into.
So far, my pregnancy has been really easy, no morning sickness or extreme fatigue. I’ve been lucky! And Evan has been so great, making sure I eat enough and bringing me water in the middle of the night (I’m so SO thirsty these days!). Since we’re totally new to this, we’ve been doing a lot of reading and listening to the advice of our friends and families, but most of all, we’ve just been letting things happen as they do. We want this experience to be ours. It’s been amazing and trying at times to watch my body begin to transform. Things are widening, bulging, and bloating. And while the changes in my body may be the hardest thing for me to cope with, I’m comforted by the fact that I’m growing a little person inside of me. It’s truly amazing.
We still have quite a ways to go, but we grow more and more excited each day to meet our new son or daughter! Expect many more baby posts to come! -xo
