I’ve mentioned in a few different posts now that we’re expecting. I won’t go into a ton of detail, but thought I’d share a little something 🙂
This will prevent me from completing some of my 30 by 30 items — like getting a new tattoo, for example — but that is fine by me! In fact, I considered adding “start a family” on the list, but I felt that was a private one that I didn’t necessarily want to broadcast.
Anyway, we’re due in October (now about 6.5 weeks away) and we’re having a boy (we’ll call him Baby D)! We are so excited and can’t wait to meet him.
The pregnancy has been a good one, and has flown by. I did have lots of nausea at the beginning, but then around week 16 it went away. I’ve had some sciatic/back pain throughout and some days are worse than others, but what can you do? He favors my right side and I think he’s resting on my sciatic nerve.
Our parents threw us a baby shower this past weekend and it was so nice! We had a nice gathering of some family and friends and everyone was so thoughtful with their gifts! We got so many cute clothes, I just don’t know how we’ll be able to use them all!
I’m planning to work for as long as I can and then get a 12-week maternity leave from work, so will likely be out through early/mid January (depending on when Baby D decides to arrive).
We really are beyond excited to start this next chapter of our lives!
