Hello! Hello! Hello!
I know guys I have been MIA but I have been quite busy! We are pregnant and could not be happier! I found out I was pregnant when I was about 5-6 weeks. I did not have any crazy symptoms, I just noticed that I was not getting my period and it ALWAYS comes on time. I took two tests in a row and saw a big fat positive sign. I was so shocked I started screaming. My husband walked in the bathroom and said, ” you are playing a prank on me” when he realized I was not joking he started jumping around as well. I called my family right away by face-timing them and pointing the camera right at the plus sign on the pregnancy test instead of my face. It was hilarious and exciting!
In this post, I will be answering some questions you have all asked or ones you are wondering about and too polite to ask lol! Either way, I am going to share my journey because heck, that’s is why I started this blog!
Was your pregnancy planned?
Yes, our pregnancy was definitely planned! We have been married for 4 years and I really wanted to make sure I was ready and spent time getting to know my husband. We have traveled and explored new adventures together and now I feel financially stable to take care of a child.
First, I tracked my cycle using the Flo app. This app is really good even if you are not trying to conceive. It also tracked my ovulation and had an area to documents symptoms. I am a teacher and knew I wanted to have a baby close to the end of the school year. By God’s grace, he has blessed us with a little one that will be born in May 2019!
How many weeks?
I am currently 18 weeks! I know my belly bump is really showing in these pics but Baby G still have a ton of growing to do 😉
How was your first trimester?
6-10weeks I was great, I did not even feel like I was pregnant! Around 10-12 weeks I started to get acid reflux, bloating and nausea. I also began to start throwing up in the mornings. It is so weird that I started feeling the symptoms at my second trimester but I guess there is no exact process in pregnancy.
Do you want a boy or a girl?
I do not prefer a particular sex I just want a happy and healthy baby! I think there are benefits for either sex so I cannot choose. I grew up with sisters so I understand them and they are calmer; however, I want a mama’s boy! Boys are also not as moody with attitudes (at least that is what I heard).
We are going to find out the sex in about 2 weeks!!! I can’t wait to have a confirmation.
Do you have special cravings?
Not really, maybe when I am farther along. I don’t wake up Daniel in the middle of the night for food but I do ask for specific foods such as chocolate bars, french fries, and pickles. I also love Jamaican dumpling.
How would you expect parenting to be like?
I am just excited to be a mother! I think my husband will be the softy and I will be the disciplinarian but who knows since I am kinda a softy with the dog lol! We will be learning as we go along and figure it out.
Thank you for being so positive and encouraging with our news. We have heard nothing but great advice and reassurance from everyone. If I did not answer a question please feel free to comment below!
