WOW it’s been a while (a year to be exact haha)! I thought it was time to share a life updates that has been a long time coming!
If you haven’t heard the hubs and I are expecting our first baby in May 2019!! We are BEYOND excited and feel so blessed to become parents. Some of you may not know that we have decided to keep the gender a mystery until baby is here. This has been something we have always thought about and are really excited for! So many people can’t believe we are doing that these days. I’ve actually had some people get really mad about it haha. We just know this is one of the very best surprises we could ever receive!
I thought I would share how a little about the beginning of my pregnancy! I’ll be sharing more later!
Right now I am 23 weeks (gosh thats crazy) and feel really good! We found out we were pregnant at around 6 weeks. I had no clue that I was pregnant until I started getting super dizzy and almost passed out while teaching one day. My friend at work and the school nurse both said I should probably take a test. That was TERRIFYING to me because we were definitely notttt planning for a baby right now. I had ONE test so I took it one morning before work. The hubs and I waited very impatiently for 3 minutes, and then were in SHOCK! We couldn’t believe we were going to be parents! That’s such a crazy feeling! I went to the doctor at around 7/8 weeks and we got to hear the heartbeat. SUCH AN AMAZING SOUND!!
I have been very lucky to not have much sickness! Other than being starving all the time I can’t complain! I was pretty dizzy at the beginning and exhausted like nobodies business! Honestly I’ve never been so tired. I would literally sit down and be asleep in 2 minutes. Luckily that has gotten MUCH better!
My plan is to do some smaller posts with updates coming up, but I wanted to share this life update first before I started sharing those! Hopefully I will be updating about every 3-4 weeks!
As of now I want to share my go-to apps that have helped me through this pregnancy so far!
The Bump– This app has been one of my most used for sure! It’s extremely user friendly and has the cutest weekly updates. I also like their food safety list and their articles seemed to be some of the best.
Ovia Pregnancy– This app has been so great as well! I used the Ovia fertility app before and really like it! There are a ton of ways to track information for you and baby as well as tons of resources! One thing I like about this app is that you can enter your doctor appointment info and it will give you an idea of what to expect when you go to your appointments. Finally, they share really good videos each week that help you to know what you should expect for that coming week. I really enjoy that!
As always thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy these little updates! More to come! 🙂
