Dear Love Bugs,
Obviously you know what the exciting news I was talking about is now! Tony & I are expecting our first child come June 2018. We are very excited!!! Yes, I know it was quick but to be honest we didn’t think we would get pregnant on the first shot and here we go. We thought it would take months and months maybe even a year or two from what I have heard. We started trying ASAP because of this I am older so I was scared to wait anymore. Luckily by the grace of God everything is happening when it is suppose to. I fully put my faith in him as many people do and just was like if it happens it happens.
Now to get a little real. I think most women go through life fearing they can’t have kids. I was so scared that would be me. I mean my family is a bunch of fertile humans and they love to procreate but I just had this fear I would be the exception. I swear I even asked Tony if he would adopt with me if I couldn’t have kids. The relief I felt when I peed on that stick and it said Pregnant was unreal. It was a little like shit is this real? I took 3 test to prove it. This made me think of all the mammas out there who are having trouble having babies and I think since I got pregnant I have been praying for everyone every night.
How have I been feeling?
As for morning sickness or all day and nigh sickness as I call it. It goes like this if I do not eat often I get super sick. So, I have had to grab whatever I could find but I def haven’t made the best choices. I DIE FOR BURGERS! I could eat them from breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also another thing I have noticed is if I eat food out like not made at home I got super sick. I would have to make food home but anyone who has been pregnant knows the first trimester all you want to do is NAP!
Speaking of napping – I have never in my 34 years on this planet napped maybe once or twice but I promise that is it. I have too much energy to begin with to nap plus I have legit case of FOMO I don’t like to miss anything hahaha HOWEVER this allllllllllllll changed. One day for instance I was cleaning our house and said oh let me just lay down for a min – 5 hours later I got up. 5 HOUR NAP! Can you believe that!! Oh and you think that ruined my sleep for the night IT DID NOT – I knocked right out! The exhaustion is real!! I think it’s preparing your body for the lack of sleep when your baby comes hahaha I also wonder how do mammas who work somewhere they can’t just nap anytime deal with it. I legit feel so bad.
How I told Tony?
I bought this book from HomeGoods that said I love you Daddy. I put that along with all the pregnancy test (remember I took 3) in a bag. Don’t worry I wrapped them up in cling wrap cuz that is just gross hahaha. I gave it to him and he read it and was like ARE YOU SERIOUS? I said keep looking he sees the test jumps up and his expression will forever be my favorite expression even better than when he saw me on our wedding day WHICH WAS PRETTY DAMN AWESOME!
Now the doctor already knows what the baby is and I have a chance to find out anytime I want. I may just find out and keep it a secret until I am ready to tell the world. I do want to find out and I have some feelings but we shall see!
