I'm Pregnant!

IMG_1288.jpg

I debated for awhile on whether or not I should share this news as some people say you really shouldn't announce that you're pregnant until the second trimester when the chances of a miscarriage are significantly lower. But for me, I was much too excited {and also figured I'm going to need all the help I can get getting past this first trimester} that I had couldn't keep this a secret any longer!

I actually found out the news last Sunday {Nov 13} when I decided that being late 11 days for my monthly cycle was probably reason for suspicion that something was amiss.  And so Adrian and I stopped by the drugstore on our way home from dinner and picked up a home pregnancy test...  I was a bit scared to take it when I got home, so I ended up waiting until the last minute before going to bed to finally muster up the courage to see what it had to say.  Lo and behold, my suspicions were confirmed!  I stood there and looked at the indicator for a good 5 minutes {with my heart racing and a thousand thoughts going through my mind}.  When I finally stopped shaking, I went to share the news with Adrian {who was already laying in bed at this point}.

I had him come and take a look at the test results himself {just in case I was too sleepy and didn't read it correctly}.  His reaction was one of confusion at first, and then of absolute happiness.  We hugged and kissed and he busted out the camera so we could document this important milestone in our lives. 

And so as of today, I am 6 weeks and 4 days along.  The due date is around July 12 {so close to my own birthday on July 19!}.  The baby is only the size of a blueberry {0.25 in long} but it's certainly been taking a toll on my body already.  I've been so ridiculously tired these past couple weeks and have had serious bouts of nausea all throughout the day {no vomiting or anything yet}.  I already have my first prenatal appointment scheduled for December 13, and I can't wait to learn more about this little thing growing in side me.   :)

Cute and little... and pregnant?  Congratulations, Kileen!  I wish you the best in trying to remain healthy and well through this time of pregnancy.  Not to mention others' blogs, but I immediately thought of another lovely petite blogger- PetiteLittleGirl- in thinking about being a pregnant petite.  Kileen, I wish you well and congratulate you on becoming a mother.  Best wishes to both you and your hubby in becoming parents.

  56. Great news! Congratulations! Crackers were my bestfiriends for the first tri-mester of both of my pregnancies' morning sickness. Hope yours is smoother!

    ReplyDelete
  57. CONGRATULATIONS!

    You'll be tired for some time and then you'll have this renewed energy during your 2nd trimester. But by your due date, you will be trying to do anything to get that baby out. Your back will feel like it'll give out at any moment.

    Drink lots and lots of water. Many preterm labors happen because you are dehydrated. Happened to me while pregnant with my 2nd child but I carried to full term.

  65. Congrats :) Lol, i love your title, Kileen!! No "I have an announcement" or something like that. I had to stare at it for a second, like, "what does that say? no... really?" Thats so exciting!! I can understand why people say to not share it, but there's no reason not to, imo. I think women deserve so much unconditional support during their pregnancy.  Its going to be so fun to follow you, just like SPG. I get to deliver my first baby in January. Granted, its not my baby, I'll be at the other end, lol.
