And just like that we went from being a family of three to a family of four! it still kind of completely blows my mind a little. The one and only pregnancy test I took was in the bathroom at the gym, I had been feeling funny all week and figured it wouldn't hurt to check and oh my gosh... probably worst work out of my life after that I was in complete shock. Of course Ben was out with friends that night so I just text him a picture of the results lol not exactly a fun way to share the news but I wanted to let him know!
I spent the rest of the month of December nauseated, bloated, and super emotional. It is really hard to be pregnant and not tell anyone seriously.... can't explain why your exhausted and wandering around looking like a zombie, can't give reasons for why your suddenly a complete emotional wreck... basically it drove me insane a little. We were also finishing and moving into the bus at the same time so it was just complete chaos. I will probably regret saying this later but I am kind of glad babies need 40 weeks to cook because we are not ready at the moment!
We had our first prenatal at 9 weeks and took Jessamyn with us. I was a little nervous to bring her but she did awesome, totally didn't care about the ultrasound (go figure) and still doesn't quite understand that she is going to be a big sister but we are working on it! The babies heart rate was 185 at our first visit and so I am totally guessing girl just based on Jessamyn also having a high heart rate at her first prenatal appointment but we will see! We didn't find out the gender last time but this time are going to just for the practicality of knowing if we are good with Jessamyn's old stuff or if we need to get some little boy things!
I would love to hear where you were when you found out you were pregnant AND how you told your partner? I feel like if I could go back I would have done something fun but in the moment your in so much shock its like "Oh my gosh I just need to tell someone." I didn't really keep a record when I was pregnant with Jessamyn BUT I am going to try to do better this time so check back in for occasional baby updates!
