So as you can imagine, the first trimester can always be an exciting yet delicate period for expecting moms. When it comes to announcing pregnancies, I’ve always been a bit conservative. I know I left you all in the dark with my little three-month social media hiatus but, now that I’m 16 weeks, healthy, and free of morning sickness, I’m more than happy to share the news!
If you didn’t already know, we’ll be adding a new member to our family. Being able to re-live this amazing process is really such a blessing. We always knew we wanted our little girl to be a big sister, we just didn’t know when to take that step. Luckily we didn’t have to wait too long.I’m going to be completely honest. Even with all the excitement, I’m a little nervous. I’m not talking about first-time mommy jitters. This time around it was completely different. A new wave of insecurities and doubts have flooded into my head for the past few months. Is it too soon? How will she adapt? A newborn and a two-year-old, yikes, how will I adapt? What country will the baby be born in? Will we have to move again before my due date? Just when everything was falling into place, our life turned upside down, again.
Luckily for me, the hubby was too excited to even think about half these things. Which was a good thing. With his help, I realized that whatever the circumstances are we have to make the best out of it and enjoy this process together because it really does fly by. Trying to plan every little detail is ideal, but not realistic. Especially not for us. They say that the best moments in life are the ones that come at us unexpectedly. I’d have to agree. Besides, in the long run for whatever reason, everything always tends to work itself out.
As far as for my blog, I’m still trying to figure it out. Mommy duties and finishing up school are at the top of my to-do-list for right now. But don’t worry, we always find a way to ditch the day-to-day routine and experience new things as a family. So, there will be plenty of things for me to share with you.
Really quick, I want to thank each and every one of you for all your sweet messages, constant support and love. I’m sorry that at times it’s tough to keep up with all the messages, please know they are appreciated to the fullest. Until next time!
