We’ve been keeping a secret, guys… I’m SO excited to share that we’re having a baby! MJD and I are absolutely thrilled to be expanding to a family of three!
After keeping the news to ourselves for so many weeks, it has felt so surreal to be sharing our exciting news with family and friends- and now all of you! It has been such a hard secret to keep as I really just wanted to shout from the rooftops with excitement! We are both already so head-over-heels in love with this little one that is going to make us a mom and dad.
Here are a few of the most common questions I’ve gotten from family and friends after sharing the pregnancy news so thought I’d share with you too:
How far along are you? I’m 17 weeks- a few weeks into the second trimester 🙂
What is your due date? May 18th. Maybe we will have a Memorial Day weekend baby!
Do you know the gender? We are planning to find out the gender, but we don’t know yet. I’ll keep you posted once we do!
How have you been feeling? I won’t lie, the first trimester was a bit tough, but it is obviously all worth it so I would never complain. I was very nauseous and averse to a lot of foods that I would normally eat. I’ve been feeling a bit more like myself the last few weeks so that is great.
Will you live in the city still? Our place is in a family friendly neighborhood with a lot of other young families in the area. When we bought our condo, we choose a place with two bedrooms with the hope that one day the second bedroom would be a nursery 🙂
I’m beyond excited to share our baby news with you! Hope you don’t mind if I sneak a bit more baby into Boston Chic Party going forward too.
