M is for our last name, I cannot seem to come up with any cute or clever nicknames for this little baby. The only thing that ever comes to mind is Stress Baby, which seems highly inappropriate. New Years Baby, maybe?
Due Date: January 2, 2014
Was it planned? It most certainly was! This is a question we've received mostly from friends our age, and I'm pretty sure the curiosity stems mostly from the fact that they can't in their wildest dreams imagine that they would plan a pregnancy. But for the record, we planned for this baby, wished for this baby, prayed for this baby, and love this baby already.
Do you know if it's a boy or a girl? Not yet! We will be finding out, and we're hosting a Gender Reveal party to find out in a fun way with family and close friends. That will be at the end of this month, and I can hardly contain myself!
How long have you known? I found out on April 24th, so I've known for about 2 1/2 months. I never beleived I would be able to keep a secret like this, but it was much easier than anticipated. Though we did tell some people earlier, only a few people knew before our 12 week scan.
Any names in mind? We do have a top boy and girl name, and though we are not worried about sharing them in real life (I tell anyone who asks), I will not be sharing on the blog. I may or may not share after our little baby makes it's debut, but that's still up for debate.
How have you been feeling? I have to admit I had things very easy. My morning sickness was limited to only nausea in waves, and there were only two times that I thought I might throw up, and it eventually passed without a trip to the bathroom. There were about three weeks where I was so tired I thought I might drift off at work, but other than that, it wasn't too bad. I know that I am lucky, and hope that this will be a trend for all the pregnancies to come in my life. The one symptom I've been blessed with is heartburn like a mother, and if the myths are true? This baby is coming out looking like Rapunzel.
Do you have a bump? I'm definitely showing, and though I am so excited to grow this baby, it's sort of embarassing. Maybe it's because some biatch giving me a massage last weekend said "Wow, you look big for only 3 1/2 months!" or maybe it's because we just now told all our friends so I was constantly worried around town that we'd run in to someone who didn't know yet and give our secret away with my mini bump. I'm not as nervous now that it's "out" and look forward to this mini bump turning into a bigger one.
13 weeks, 2 days
Any other questions?
Bumpdate with some specifics about this past week coming tomorrow!
