Jason and I have been blessed this holiday season with a bun in the oven! I am excited to share a few more details about my pregnancy below.
If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw my pregnancy announcementthat and that I was going to share our pregnancy story on the blog last week. And then another week went bye and I am just getting around to write the most exciting post EVER! I have been busy to say the least. When I shared that picture on Instagram what I really should’ve said was “I’ll be sharing my Pregnancy story sometime in the next month or so.” Jason and I have been devoting our time to house hunting and baby planning. We were under contract with a house and it came back with a SCARY inspection and now we are continuing our search. Keep your fingers crossed for us please! I constantly beat myself up when I get behind on blogging. My overachieving ass feels like some kind of failure. At this point in my life I have to put other priorities in front sometimes!! So enough with my sob story because…. Jason and I are HAVING A BABY!!!!
I am currently 15.5 weeks preggo, I have known for 14 weeks that I was pregnant. I took a test “the first day possible,” if you know what I mean. I found out before Jason got home from work and then I had to run back out in the evening for my job. It was a few days before my husband’s 28th birthday so I initally thought it would be so cool to surprise him on his birthday. About an hour later, reality sunk in. I realized that I would never going to be able to keep this news a secret for 4 days!!
It was time for plan B: I wanted to tell him in a clever way so I began brainstorming. Most nights we have “sleepy time” tea. I decided it would be cute to write “#1 dad to be” on a mug. When I got home, Jason ran out to get pizza for us. While he was gone I put the mug on the table. I strategically (shaking & nervous) placed the mug so that he would have to be sitting down in his seat to be able to read the mug. Well….. he sat down….. and the look on his face was PERFECT!!! His eyes lit up and he said, are you serious, over and over again!! It was priceless!!! I was so proud of myself for pulling it off!!
We told Jason’s family about a week later after finding out. We waited to tell my family for 3 weeks, when we were going down to South Florida to see them. It was the hardest three weeks of my life!!! My mom and I talk on the phone every single day and it was killing me to keep it from her. I just had to keep reminding myself that seeing the look on my parents and brother’s face would be worth the wait! Our family and friends are over the moon and I am so glad to have them apart of this journey. It will be my parents first grand baby, I am pretty sure they will love the child more than they love my brother and I (only kidding… kinda).
I have been so fortunate not to experience any morning sickness or issues with my pregnancy thus far. Jason and I find out the gender of baby Colding in 2 weeks!!! I can not hardly sleep at night because I am so anxious to find out. I am such a planner so it is killing me to not know if it is a baby girl or baby boy. So much excitement for the holidays!!! Thanks you to everyone who has wished us warm wishes!! I can’t wait to share more as time goes on. I hope to share some fun holiday posts for Christmas!! Wow, we are just 13 days away!!!
Keep in touch,
