The surprise is finally out, Ellie is going to be a big sister come September!! Today marks the halfway mark, 20 weeks, and I am very excited to be halfway done with this pregnancy. Friends & family already know this, but I am NOT a happy / glowing pregnant woman – I am a bloated, fatigued & forever hungry pregnant lady that is constantly on the lookout for donuts. Let’s just say it’s not the prettiest time in my life (even though I can do a little transformation with makeup & good lighting!)
Alfred & I had been keeping this to ourselves for so long for a couple of reasons. First & foremost, I was super paranoid about something going wrong – and not for any logical reason, just normal pregnancy nerves (as many momma’s out there know!) I have seen and heard so many heartbreaking stories lately of miscarriages, especially now that women are beginning to speak more openly about these issues. And while I am all for that & think it is so amazing that these women are helping other women heal, I also know that it is just not something I could go through and deal with on social media. We also decided to wait to tell our parents until after Alfred’s sisters wedding, and then we took our time telling family & friends before letting it out in the open!
We are super excited to give Ellie a playmate & I will be posting updates throughout my pregnancy! Let me know if there are any posts you want to see from me or any topics you want covered!
