In case you missed it over on Instagram, I made a big announcement last week…
Our lives are going to get a whole lot sweeter in 2018, as we’re expecting a baby come late May/early June! The
boyfriend fiance and I are so excited for this next adventure in our lives. We’ve received nothing but warm wishes since sharing the news with family and friends so we know that El Capitan (our nickname for baby) will be so loved.
Just as an FYI, this space will certainly not turn into a pregnancy/mom blog, but I do plan to share my thoughts on eating, movement and body image as the pregnancy progresses. It definitely has been an interesting experience for me so far!
We’ve also received a bunch of questions, so I figured I’d answer a few here for ya…
What is your due date? How far along are you?
June 3rd…so 13 weeks!
how are you feeling?
(Knock on wood!) I’m feeling good now. I was zapped of energy for the first few weeks and weeks 8-10ish brought some nausea, but in general I feel lucky to feel really good.
when did you find out?
Right around 4 weeks, the morning of a day-long CrossFit competition!
how did you tell boyfriend? and your families?
Because I found out as I was rushing out the door for a day of CrossFit, I waited to tell him until later that night. I wanted to do something super cute, but in the end I was too excited/overwhelmed to wait or think of something clever. When we got in bed that night, I handed him a card that said “Sh*t just got real!” with a stork on it. 🙂
We told our parents early on–with my parents, I bought a NY Yankees onesie that read “Newest Yankee Fan” on the front and #18 on the back. For his parents, we gave them custom pints of ice cream.
were you trying?
I honestly feel a little uncomfortable when we get asked this, but for all you nosey poseys–yes, we were trying.
are you going to find out the gender?
YES. We are both wayyy too impatient to wait for that kind of surprise.
Stay tuned for an upcoming post on my first trimester experience. Of course, I also want to hear from you! Is there anything you’d like to hear more about when it comes to pregnancy/mom-life? Moms–what do I need to know (besides everything)?
