If you know me at all you’ll know how TERRIBLE I am at keeping in secrets. I’m just terrible, awful, awful. I can’t keep things in whatsoever. So without further ado, I’m excited to announce that my husband Ryan and I are expecting our first child! Woohoo! We announced to our close friends and family and are ready to make it official news. As of today I’m just a little over 7 weeks along. Halfway done with my first trimester! I know its pretty early to most to be announcing publicly.. Most people try to wait to announce until the risks are a bit lower, but the way I see it- If anything bad were to happen I’ll need all the love and support that I can get! Plus I have faith that everything will be just fine! We are due in early September and are very nervous and excited.
Ryan and I went to Virginia this past weekend to (FINALLY) announce the good news to my parents since we wanted to tell them in person! I had the pleasure of hanging out with my sweet friend Annie who’s also a blogger over at lovearenalds.com She used my camera to take a few announcement photos for us and they turned out so cute. I could decide which ones to use, so here’s a bunch of them!
This news is also my excuse for my absence around here. Anyone who’s been pregnant knows the first trimester makes you so tired and unmotivated and I’m no exception! So far I feel “fine” with the exception of wanting to sleep all the time. I get queasy if I have an empty stomach so I’m constantly snacking to avoid the empty stomach queasiness! If I could sleep and eat all day I would be so happy. 😛
So far I’ve been craving mostly salty foods! And junk foods I shouldn’t be eating. My first food aversion is eggs…Which is a shame because we eat eggs for breakfast all the time. I don’t want to look at eggs or think about them anymore though. Haha
Well that’s about it! I’ll be posting occasional pregnancy updates as I feel like it and will try to post some “real” posts soon but we’ll see! I took photos for a soup recipe I created recently and am waiting to find some energy to write that post. Hopefully soon. 😉 Anyways, that’s it for now! Thanks for stopping by!
