It’s a girl!

The time has finally come to announce our big news…we are pregnant with a sweet baby girl!  It seems kind of crazy to be finally sharing this news because we have been keeping this secret for so long!  But, now the secret is out and we are over the moon excited about this big change in our life!

Lately, Jonathan and I have been day dreaming about what it will be like to raise a little girl.  We already love her so much and can’t imagine how much more love we will feel once she is here.  I keep thinking about how I felt when we were in the ultrasound appointment waiting to hear if she was going to be a boy or a girl.  We had to wait until the very end of the appointment to find out because she was situated in a way that the technician couldn’t tell for sure.  And, when she finally told us I instantly cried.  I just felt so much love and emotion for that sweet little girl.  Such a beautiful and crazy experience, and one I will never forget.

So far being pregnant has been quite the wild ride.  No one can really prepare you for what your first pregnancy will be like – especially because experiences can vary so much!  My first trimester wasn’t a worst-case-scenario by any means, but I will say, being nauseous from morning to night is no walk in the park!  And, my cravings weren’t outrageous but for awhile I was eating 3 to 4 oranges a day.  I would practically have a panic attack if we ran out of oranges in the refrigerator!  Mostly, I am just happy to be out of the woods with that part of pregnancy and have my energy back.

Well, that is our exciting news!  So happy to share it with you!
