We are PREGNANT! Yes, yes, was there even a need to say it? As if these pictures weren’t obvious enough!
It is so surreal, so very crazy, but so very real that we are expecting our first little love joining us July 2018!
I know what some of you may be thinking…woah, that was fast…and yes, it was!!! But this baby is our biggest blessing. Although unexpected, baby S is no less the greatest gift to top of an already amazing year!
Before getting married, Trey and I talked a lot about when we wanted to start a family and we were both open to it happening right away. We had the ‘when it happens it happens’ attitude – whatever was in God’s plans.
I know many couples struggle with infertility or difficulty conceiving, and having had family and friends who struggle with it, I’m just very grateful for this little life inside of me. It’s something I don’t ever want to take for granted.
We got to see our baby for the first time yesterday and I can’t even put into words what it was like to actually see our little baby – a real baby, inside of me. I couldn’t help but cry. He/she was the sweetest little thing. We got to see it’s fluttering heart and hands and feet waving at us. It was just so surreal. I think up until this point I still couldn’t believe I was pregnant. We got to hear the heartbeat just a few weeks before, but hearing and actually being able to see your baby are two totally different experiences. I just feel this overwhelming joy and happiness and all I can think about is this life inside of me.
I am starting a new series called #Bumpday, which will be posted almost every Wednesday/#Humpday. I am currently going into my second trimester (craaazzzyyyy) and boy, am I looking forward to it. My first trimester was a rough one. During the last couple months of 2017, my holiday breaks and weekends were spent in bed ALL.DAY. I’ve been extremely exhausted and extremely nauseous basically every single day. There were very few foods that wouldn’t make me nauseous these first few months. Everything that I normally loved to eat before getting pregnant, my pregnant self has rejected and is now repulsed by the smell and tastes. For example, my love for Korean tofu soup and all-you-can-eat KBBQ. Nope, I no longer like its taste or smells. I’ve actually tried to eat my former favorite things, but I feel sick and nauseous right after, making me regret even trying to convince my body to accept it otherwise. I also no longer like milk teas. Pho, PHO, my ultimate comfort food, has even at times made me nauseous and feel awful.
What hasn’t made me feel sick is pizza, hotdogs, burgers and just awful junk food. Let me tell you, I have never consumed so much pizza in my whole adult life than in this pregnancy. I’ve actually never even craved pizza or asked Trey to order some until getting pregnant. So this leads me to believe I am carrying a very Trey baby, which I’m not even mad about. 😂 I’m actually relieved. I’m really hoping this baby takes after his/her father.
I need to take a moment and brag on Trey. He (my baby-daddy) has been the most doting husband and dad-to-be. He’s been so patient and understanding. Poor Trey has been in charge of all the cooking, cleaning, and everything in between at our house for these past few months. He’s put up with all my cravings and craziness, and will do pizza and Micky D runs at all hours of the day/night. He’s also been a nazi when it comes to making sure I’m taking my prenatal vitamins and making sure I’m always eating and drinking enough. I’m very grateful for that man.
That’s it for my first bump-date. I’m done complaining now 😉.
Thank you BT Photography for capturing these very special pictures on such a frigid, cold day.
We shot at a few other locations and below are a few of my second favorites :).
