So I have some news…
I’m currently 13.5 weeks pregnant and have been DYING to tell you guys. It’s been such a struggle because you know I like to be pretty open about everything going on in my life. This felt like such a huge secret that I couldn’t share and on top of just feeling a little weird emotionally the first trimester, I felt blocked creatively because all I wanted to do was talk about what was REALLY going on.
I found out pretty early because I was obsessively tracking my ovulation and using cheap pregnancy test strips at home and after four months of trying — SUCCESS. I actually felt like we were out that month too, but was surprised when I saw the test come back positive. I ran to Target to buy another test (duh), took it in their bathroom, and then walked around on the street with it in my purse so that I wasn’t just sitting in a Target bathroom forever getting weird looks. I set a timer on my phone and when I checked it, that one was positive too. BAM. Baby Bahadur.
I will write a more detailed first trimester post so if you have any questions, please comment or email me and I’ll make sure to include them. There will be sporadic pregnancy posts here and there as we get to May, but it is not my intention to have this blog turn into mom-only content. I’m also planning a post on my decision to start a family and how I knew it was a good time (hint: my therapist told me to stop being dumb), so that should be a fun one too. If the pregnancy posts don’t float your boat, feel free to skip them as I did when I wasn’t pregnant or had no interest in the “best baby gear,” but I will admit that now that we are on this journey I’ve gone back to some of my friend’s posts about it. So never say never. AND SEND ME ALL YOUR BEST BABY GEAR. 🙂
I’m SO HAPPY that I can share this with you now and make sure to follow along on Instagram since I’ll probably have more frequent updates there on my stories. To wrap it up, here is a picture of Neil and I after I made him take 213245677 selfies. I promise he is very excited about this little nugget. 🙂
