I am pregnant. 16 weeks actually. Last night I decided I am finally ready to make the big announcement. My friends have all been wondering why I haven't made the news Facebook/blog official. I guess I was waiting until another dr. appt (which I had yesterday) to hear the beautiful sound of the baby's heartbeat. This was actually the third time Erik and I have heard the heartbeat and we've seen baby L during two ultrasounds. I'm a worrier. But now I'm finally feeling like...yes, there is definitely a baby in there since my belly is getting rounder and the pounds on the scale are increasing.
I am so excited, happy, thrilled, hormonal...all those crazy emotions first time mommas feel. A few things I've learned about my pregnant self over the past few months.
- Cooking/baking has been low on the priority list. I haven't had a huge appetite lately and I'm sure you've noticed that the blog has majorly lacked in this area.
- When I do have an appetite I crave sweets. Big time. Remember the couple weeks in a row I obsessed over pie and donuts? Well, now you know why. Some people say craving sweets means I'm having a girl. We'll know in four weeks!
- Weddings are a whole new experience now (being sober). Instead of enjoying cocktails I eat cake, lots of cake. And dancing at 11pm is a bit awkward. I am definitely not as cool as I once thought.
Eat Drink Pretty is not going to turn into a mom blog. But I will continue to blog about my life and events taking place within it. So that probably means baby/mom/belly mentions will become more frequent. But I promise not to give weekly updates on how much weight I've gained and I'll certainly spare you on pictures of my growing belly!
