Steelers Fan Due 5/26/13
Nathan and I are very excited to announce that we are expecting our first baby on May 26, 2013!
I am very excited that I am no longer keeping a huge secret and can share this wonderful news with everyone. I can now be the honest blogger I was born to be! The 1st trimester is coming to an end, and so far everything is A-OK with both baby and myself. That leads me into this blog post where I thought I would begin to share this journey and answer as many questions as possible at one time.
The last 12 weeks have been an adjustment, but I’m sure it is nothing compared to our exciting journey ahead of us. While we do not know what we are having yet, nor do I want to find out, Nathan tells everyone that I am growing a man! Time will tell, but I am fairly confident that it is not a man, but a baby. On a serious note, we are fine with a boy or a girl (fingers crossed) as long as the baby is healthy.
Luckily, I have not been sick, although I will say nausea is not a fun time either, but better than vomit I suppose. Mainly, I have been exhausted–I am talking 11-12 hours of sleep per day exhausted. For those of you soon-to-be-pregnant newlyweds, this is very common, yet no one seems to mention it until you can barely keep your head up. Now you know.
Cravings? Grilled cheese, pancakes, waffles…lets just say carbs in general. Seriously though-I could eat pancakes for every meal, which is crazy because normally breakfast food is my least favorite food on the planet.
I have learned that I cannot go to the grocery store by myself because I no longer care to have self-control. If I see something and it looks good, I buy it! I come home with at least two different kinds of chips, ice cream, candy, cookies, brownies-a complete 180 from only eating Special K chips! So, yes, I do have an appetite and I can only hope that I will be lucky in the weight gain. Yes, I know I can go to the gym, but like I said I am tired and pregnant.
That’s all for now, but don’t you worry I still have 6 months of pregnancy blogging ahead of me:)
