So the secret is out! We’re pregnant! That’s right Those of you standing by, eagerly awaiting an actual wedding… may want to pull up a chair. Daniel and I have kinda been legally married since August of 2014! With all of our stateside moves, planning an actual wedding was sooooo out of the realm of possibilities. Just the thought of putting together the details of a whole ceremony to reception kind of deal was sorta anxiety inducing and at the end of the day could never pull the trigger on the planning. Basically life got in the way and everything but the essentials got placed on hold.
It feels surreal to let everyone OFFICIALLY in on our little secret, even though I’m sure most of you have figured it out by now! IG feed kinda gives it away LOL. I had joked around that we’d end up having a kid before we got around to putting on an actual wedding ceremony. You know, one where Grandma would have to walk down the aisle holding the babe, à la Kris Jenner? Well, that sorta became real life real fast! Way to go power of thought!
At this point, who knows if we’ll ever get around to all that other ceremony stuff. It all seems mostly unnecessary with our new focus on this beautiful baby! It’s so exciting to share this news with everyone now, but to be honest, there was something about news like this, this personal, that made me feel like I wanted to hold onto it a little longer. To keep it private for as long as possible. It’s kind of hard to explain why. Maybe because we wanted to soak in the fact that these next few months will be our last as a party of 2+ some pups!
Anyway, I plan on sharing A LOT of what has been going on throughout my pregnancy; the ups and the downs. Get ready for blog overload and TMI about my trips to the potty room and my most welcomed introduction to Miralax – yay! There will be posts filled with the baby basic milestones but also plenty of realness on the inevitable weight gain, what I’m eating (and not eating), and how I’m keeping fit and healthy during this pregnancy, for baby’s sake and mine!
Welcome to our new reality!
