The Joys of Expecting

The Joys of expecting.

1.You are expecting your first child later this summer. How did you find out you were pregnant?

A few months after I stopped taking birth control, I noticed that our dog started to follow me everywhere…all of the time. My sister told me that it could be a sign that I was pregnant! When I mentioned it to my husband he rushed to get a pregnancy test, and sure enough, it was positive. We were a bit shocked but happy!

2. How are you preparing for the arrival of your first child?

I’ve been reading a lot of books and asking for advice from friends and family. Between my husband and I, we have 7 nieces and nephews so we have a bit of practice and a good group of people surrounding us. We are planning on doing a home birth and our doula has been a great resource for us.

3. What do you enjoy most about being pregnant?

Eating all the ice cream with no guilt!

I’ve had a very smooth pregnancy so far so I’ve been enjoying the journey with my partner. A baby was always something we wanted and we’re just so happy to be living this experience. Shopping for baby clothes is also something I’m guilty of doing too much of.

4. Did you find out the gender of your baby?

We decided to keep it a surprise. I’m stunned that that I’ve agreed to go that route as I’m a super curious and impatient person! I’m sure it will be worth the wait. I know it’s cliché to say but as long as we have a healthy baby, we have no preference on the gender.

5. What are you looking forward the most to becoming a mom?

I’ve always wanted to be a mother. I look forward to all the little moments! The first smile, the first steps all the way to the high school graduation.
