I don’t always feel like I keep in contact with my close family and friends enough, so my goal with this blog is to be able to share a lot more with everyone…and hopefully others as a result of my successful writing skills (if you want to call it that!)
In March…Yes almost 4 months ago…we found out we were having a baby. We have kept is a secret from the “public” aka “Facebook” for almost half the pregnancy for multiple reasons, but now we are beyond excited to share with everyone our joy. We found ourselves relaxing at night and asking ourselves..Seriously…We Are About To Be Parents!? Part of it doesn’t seem possible…but as my bump continues to expand and I have started to feel my very active future soccer player move everyday now, we are realizing VERY QUICKLY how real it is.
So I just wanted to give everyone a quick “first update” on our progress.
As of yesterday, I am 20 weeks along. Halfway there! This pic of me is from 3 weeks ago, when I was 17 weeks. It’s INSANE to think that I am already halfway through this incredible journey already. Pretty soon we will be able to have our baby home with us and get to experiences all the ups, downs, and crazy moments as we embrace parenthood.
As of this week, I have gained 14 pounds so far. The recommended weight gain for the entire pregnancy is 35 pounds, so I am right on target for where I should be. Which is pretty darn exciting to me!
Now onto more important stuff that you all really care about…
We have a VERY healthy…VERY ACTIVE…(did I mention active?…Seriously…I don’t think my child sleeps). I swear I have a future soccer player growing inside of me. We had our 20 week ultrasound this week and found our little star is just perfect. The baby weighs 11 ounces so far and is quite the stubborn one. This is the best pic we could get because the baby just would not rotate AT ALL to get a better face shot. We do know the sex, but we are waiting until our gender reveal in a few weeks before we make that public.
I think our baby is just perfect…active, stubborn, and all…I look forward to updating everyone in the next few days, weeks, and months about all the ups and downs of pregnancy so far. So enjoy and thanks for reading 😉
