Boo! Baby On The Way

Shirt worn as dress: Amazon (wearing a medium). Boots: Stuart Weitzman.

I'm excited to share the news that Ted and I are expecting! "Baby B" is due in April. I can't even put into words my excitement to become a mommy.

Thanks to my Instagram friends for their sweet comments after we posted the picture! I wasn't exactly planning a skeleton themed social media reveal... instead I was going to avoid any pics of my stomach until Thanksgiving and have a bump reveal closer to the holiday. I bought my shirt on Amazon (that ended up fitting like a dress) last minute to wear to work on Friday and decided to get something coordinating for Ted to wear to a party in the city Saturday. It was much more comfortable than squeezing into my German beer maid getup.

I am 17 weeks along today. I was extremely exhausted during my first trimester but my energy levels have started to climb back up recently.  Thankfully I didn't suffer from any morning sickness. I was prepared with saltines and ginger candy but it never hit. If I don't eat breakfast within an hour of waking up I start to feel queasy but that has been easily avoided. As for cravings nothing new, bring on the (pasteurized) cheese. Overall, I'm feeling good! 

My workout routine has been the biggest change so far during my pregnancy. I really miss taking cardio classes that rev up my heart rate. Instead I have been going to barre class and supplementing with walking on the treadmill or using the elliptical. I recently started a prenatal yoga series and love that I'm not the only one in the class modifying moves. I've cut back on the number of days I workout but have set some new goals to keep me moving.

We'll find out the gender at our next appointment, it can't come soon enough. I have a feeling it's a boy.... Ted thinks it's a girl but I catch him saying "he" and "him" every so often. Either way, we are thrilled and feeling blessed!

More Baby B updates to come!

  6. STILL just so over the moon for you two!!! :) Also, I have been eating ALLLLLLL the pasteurized (white sharp cheddar ) cheese that I can get my hands on! I buy at least 2 things of it when I go to the grocery every trip!! I loved it before but wonder what that's all about? Can't wait for you to find out the gender - it feels a lot more real after you find out? I know that sounds crazy but just wait. Love you to pieces!!! YAAAAAAAAAY

  7. Congratulations! I am so, so, so excited for you and Ted! you are only a few weeks behind me so it will be so fun reading your recaps and comparing notes. Can't wait to learn the gender. It makes it so much more real and is so fun to say he or she instead of just baby or it!
