The time leading up to my trifecta of amazing holidays (Christmas, my birthday, and New Year's) this past year was really stressful. I was working my tush off at my job and still trying to make time for friends, family, my Junior Woman's Club and blog events. I started a bunch of blog posts with every intention to finish them, but although I was in a great mood, I was really tired and had trouble finding motivation to finish anything. I chalked this up to being stressed out and therefore just wanting support from those around me and to veg out whenever possible.
On the evening of December 17, I came home and got something tremendous... a positive pregnancy test!
YEP, Hubs and I are expecting our first baby!
|Bella will be such a good big sister!|
It turns out that my exhaustion and other issues were pregnancy symptoms!
This was absolutely the biggest, most life-changing news I've ever received. I mean, it would change anyone's life, right?! I was initially surprised, but that quickly turned to excitement, happiness, and a few tears. This was great news, and perfect timing now that we have our new house.
We are due on August 26, 2014, which currently makes me 14 weeks along. And yes, there's just ONE baby living in my tummy. Thank freaking God. (No offense to parents of multiples, but as a twin, I just know that my sister and I were a ton of work for my poor mom. One is fine by me.)
I've been getting all kinds of crazy pregnancy questions lately, which I'll share in a future post.
I'm sooooo glad I can finally get this off my chest. I've been dying to tell everyone, but Hubs and I wanted to wait until the second trimester to share our news in totally public forums. I feel totally relieved that it's out there for the world to see. Whew!
Life is good, my friends. Life is very good.
