So we finally announced that we’re pregnant on social media, and as much as we wanted to keep this to ourselves, we’re super excited and happy to share this with everyone. Such a wonderful new chapter in our lives.
It all happened in January when we first found out the big news, a little version of us on the way to make us a family. I can not explain how wonderful that felt and how much joy it brought to us.
Week by week and as our little one grew it made us realize how blessed we are and yet how often we forget the blessings we have. I’ve always read about how important it is to count your blessing but I honestly never really committed to doing so everyday, now I can’t sleep without thinking of at least 3 things I’m grateful for in my life.
The first couple of months were tough, I couldn’t eat, sleep or go to work, I even thought about quitting my job several times (thank god I didn’t), there were times were I wouldn’t even be able to drink water without having to rush to the bathroom. Everyone kept telling me it’ll all go back to normal the second trimester, but at that time I didn’t believe it and I thought it’ll continue to be like this the whole pregnancy. I was wrong.
We’re now 31 weeks pregnant, preparing for the big day, and waiting to meet our little one. I can honestly say that I couldn’t have done this without my hubby by my side. He gives me strength and love and I’m forever grateful to have him in my life.
God bless all the mamas and mamas-to-be out there for everything they’re doing.
