How was this only a year ago?! She looks so little!
That’s about all the Halloween content I have for today. If you’re looking for more, check on my healthy Halloween snacks from a week or two back.
Because today’s post is one giant virtual thank you hug! I read every comment on here, twitter, instagram and facebook and floated through the entire day. You guys made me feel so loved. AND I’m super excited to hear so many of you are expecting around the same time. Hooray, let’s all go eat pickles!
For those with zero interest in kiddos or growing bellies, I’m happy to report I’m getting back in a cooking groove and look forward to sharing many meal plans, favorite foods and holiday goodies.
In other words, I’ll do my best I can to keep a balance.
However, I have kept detailed notes throughout the journey so far and plan on recapping more than you probably care to read, but selfishly I really want to have this time to look back on.
For a brief overview, it took us a little longer than expected to create this little miracle. Nothing crazy, but since Hailey was the best surprise we ever got, my overconfident ovaries were a bit taken aback.
…You just said ovaries.
Yup, there might be a little personal talk up in here moving forward, but I promise to keep it PG-rated.
I’m hoping to touch on dietary changes I credit with helping regulate my crazy cycles, how we found out, a few unnerving moments in the beginning, how I’ve been feeling and my current favorite, what do the old wives tales say about this sweet baby’s sex?!
In all seriousness, we are continually praying for a healthy baby. So far things look good.
Things have been more challenging this time with nausea, but I’m finally turning the corner. I’ll be 13 weeks on Friday and almost out of the first trimester. My due date is May 9, though the baby has consistently been measuring 4-5 days ahead. Maybe s/he will be here in time to celebrate cousin Kyla’s 1st birthday on May 7??
However, today is a day full of Halloween fun! I’m in charge of our neighborhood Halloween party, which is proving to be more of a task than I anticipated, so I’m off to get things rolling.
However, I’d love your input…
Are there any pregnancy details you’d like for me to elaborate on?
And have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
