Yes, you read that right! In approximately 6 months, CJ and I will have an adorable little baby boy/girl! We are sooo incredibly excited for this new chapter in our lives and can’t wait to share it with you.
We found out on August 30 and celebrated that night with a glass of bubbly (aka Sparkling Apple Cider).
With so much excitement, it’s hard to focus on anything else going on. The regular question that comes up, “What’s New?” has been the hardest question for us to answer. What’s new??? CJ and I are going to be parents, that’s what’s new!! But we have been calmly replying, “Oh you know, not much.” Although I always felt like people could see right through me. We wanted to wait until after the first trimester was over to tell everyone just to be safe but the anticipation was killing us! We kept talking about how it’s weird that something so exciting was happening in our lives and no one knew. It was all for a good reason though, we wanted to make sure that baby was healthy before sharing anything.
Our first picture of the baby was from when he/she was about the size of a pine nut. So tiny that we really couldn’t see much in the sonogram. Our doctor just pointed in between two tiny little white lines and said, “Right there, that’s your baby!”. What a crazy (but exciting) phrase to hear! Our second picture of the baby was from our first ultrasound which was such an exciting experience. Baby T was quite active during the ultrasound!
So here are the details so far:
- Baby T is due on May 11, 2014
- We will DEFINITELY be finding out the baby’s gender. Are you kidding? We are too excited to wait and really want to pick a name!
- The guest room will turn into the baby’s room
As far as how I’ve been feeling in these first few months – nauseous, constant headaches, exhausted… you know, all the fun stuff. I expected to feel that way after reading through What to Expect When You’re Expecting (yes, we bought the book right away and yes, it’s super informative) but didn’t expect it to be so distracting. Thankfully, I haven’t felt that way in a couple of weeks! I’ve been told the first trimester is the hardest part and that it gets much easier after that. Today marks the first day of the second trimester, woohoo!
And that’s about it so far. We’ll keep you posted on the progress!
