Big Announcement!

 

Baby Carriage

YUP! That’s right. Hubby & I are expecting a little one in June!

I know I haven’t been a consistent blogger but I feel like when I first began my blog,
I was blogging about our wedding planning process.
Now that I’m pregnant, there is loads to blog about again as well as tons more time to blog as I have been finding myself snuggled up at home much more often than before. 

Hubby and I finally made it public knowledge (a.k.a. FB knowledge) this past Friday!! We had tons of congratulatory messages from people which was so nice. So many people are excited for us which is so touching and very exciting! We are very blessed to have the family and friends that we do.

It was definitely a tough secret to keep from others. I felt so relieved once everyone knew!

We even found out that some of our close friends are due the day before us!!!! I mean what are the chances. I cannot believe and am still in shock over that news. We will be able to share loads this coming year for sure as well as being on mat leave together all next year. It is perfect.

I had my first doctor’s appointment on Friday which was also my birthday (awesome birthday gift btw) and was told that everything is going well and the baby is healthy. I have to go for blood work this week and will have another appointment in a month which feels so far away.

Our first u/s is only at 18 weeks – is this normal?
I feel like that is later than most but really have no idea.

Anyways, hubby and I are thrilled and super excited! We were so lucky in that it happened right away. I know sometimes couples can be TTC for a few years so we consider ourselves extremely lucky and very blessed!

Originally, I thought it was maybe girl but now I am leaning towards boy. Hubby is absolutely convinced that it is a mini-him lol. I guess we will have to wait and see!!!

Congrats again Sheila! Ya 18 weeks is totally normal! Healthy pregnancies usually only have 1 ultrasound at 18 weeks!

YAY! Congratulations!! So excited for y'all!! I think the number of ultrasounds that you have depends on your insurance! Here, most people have one initially at 7-8 weeks and then another around 18-20.

Congrats!! We are not finding out the sex. This is our 3rd baby and wexobly found out the sex with one and I find the surprise much more fun. I only had one ultra sound with every pregnancy and it was at 20 weeks. That's all you need. No need to fuss
