Whewwwww! Boy does it feel good to finally let the world know :) My husband and I are SO excited to be welcoming our first baby next June! <3
I wanted to write this blog post and just update y'all on how the first trimester went for me. I've had so many friends, family, & clients asking so what better way! :) I have been SO blessed to say I did not have morning sickness! I had maybe two occasions where I felt a bit queasy but both times where I allowed myself to get to the hangry state and I'm pretty sure I get that way regardless of having a human growing ;) My ONLY complaint/issue I have had during my pregnancy is most evenings (right about 8:30-9) I have a crazy itching attack. My skin gets SO itchy! The only thing that seems to help calm that is warm shower & then pure aloe vera. My midwife blames it on the increased blood flow in the body & the hormones. I think my child just likes to torture me ;)
Another update is we are NOT finding out the baby's gender until s/he is here! I am so excited to be surprised and what better motivation for labor?! Life just doesn't give you many amazing surprises like this and we just really want to embrace that. Plus, we have no preference on gender so it will be perfect!
And lastly, YES we have already hired a birth photographer! The amazing Amanda Ellis from Amanda Ellis Photography will be documenting our journey into parenthood! I am so thankful to have someone I can trust during this time to capture OUR story! Y'all know how passionate I am about documenting this time and to know ours will be captured makes me WAY too emotional to handle!
Thank you ALL for all the kind words & well wishes! I'm so excited to share my journey along the way! <3
