I am pleased to announce that my husband, Brent, and I are expecting our first baby in June. We found out this week that we’re having a boy! Babies are such miracles and we feel extremely blessed.
Pregnancy is such a crazy, wonderful thing. I’ve wanted to blog each week about the nutty things going on inside of me, but we wanted to wait before making the big announcement, and I’m sure no one cares to read those details anyway.
I’m fortunate to have had a very smooth pregnancy thus far. I wasn’t too sick during the first trimester…just a little nauseous here and there, and of course total exhaustion.
I did get a very bad upper respiratory/sinus infection early on, which was extremely hard to kick. Of course, you can’t take too much to relieve the symptoms, including my all-time favorite, Nyquil. Instead, I used remedies my grandmother used like a saline nose spray, Vick’s Vapor Rub and a humidifier.
New symptoms have popped up in the second trimester besides my stomach popping out. I’ve experienced heartburn for the first time of my life, leg cramps and a stuffy nose. Who knew a little baby could affect your sniffer? Apparently, it’s pretty common. At least, I have more energy these days!
I love getting to see our little guy on the sonograms. And boy, do we have an active one. He’s always moving and wiggling when we take a peek. He’s even waved at us, and sucked his thumb on camera.
Now that we know it’s a boy, it’s on to picking a name and paint color for the nursery. If you have any suggestions, feel free to post a comment.
This is such an exciting time and I’m glad I can share it with our viewers and readers.
Thanks for all the good tidings so far…
