We're Having a Baby!
We are beyond blessed to share we are going to be a family of three this summer! This has been the toughest secret to keep but we've enjoyed having this special time to ourselves and our families. We are most grateful to have a healthy, thriving baby and can't wait to meet him or her. I'm excited to announce I'll be sharing my journey as a first time Mama here on my blog and on all of my social media channels so be sure to follow along! Mr. A (Mr. Amazing) will also be making blog posts to share his perspective on things including below where he interviewed me about being pregnant. I hope you'll enjoy being a part of this adventure with us. We're having the time of our lives! Get ready for @LittleAmazing!
Mr. A : When did you know you were pregnant?
Brandi: I had a feeling something was different but wanted to wait a week to be sure so I waited until the following Saturday to take a pregnancy test. You were sleeping like a baby when I snuck into the bathroom. Before I could even finish washing my hands the test said PREGNANT. I couldn't wait to jump back in bed and wake you up!
Mr. A: Yeah, I was sleeping!
Brandi: I know....so I nuzzled you a little and when you finally woke up I looked at you and said "There's a baby inside of me!"
Mr. A: I was still half asleep and didn't realize really what was going on and I heard you talking but didn't register what you were saying until you flashed the pregnancy test in front of my eyes. I was overwhelmed with excitement and can't wait to be a future dad! So how did you get pregnant?
Brandi: Haha! Real funny. That's what's crazy though! I was on the road so much that month but we managed to make a baby somehow!
Mr. A: What was your first trimester like?
Brandi: Well I had zero morning sickness so that was incredible. I felt a little more tired than usual and I was hungry all of the time.
Mr. A: Well that's nothing new! You're always planning your next meal when you're eating your current meal. But you have tons of energy so it was crazy when you'd want to go to bed early.
Brandi: Right? I've been a sleepy head these past couple of weeks. It was also so hard not to tell our friends we were pregnant but I'm so glad we waited.
Mr. A: As excited as I was my main priority was to make sure the baby was healthy before we told everyone and to get your blood work done for the genetic testing.
Brandi: I know. All that matters is that the baby is healthy and I'm so glad we focused on that.
Mr. A: After you got your ultrasound done and the results back from the blood work and we found out the baby is healthy and thriving, how relieved were you?
Brandi: I was so relieved! And grateful! As both of us know, the first trimester can be stressful but all that matters now is we are going to be parents to a healthy baby!
Mr. A: What are you looking forward to the most?
Brandi: I can't wait to see how great you're going to be as a Dad. You're already an incredible husband and best friend but you're going to be the best Dad. I'm so grateful for everything you've done to help me during this first trimester....like bringing me my vitamins, picking up loaded baked potatoes (my current craving), texting me to remind me to drink more water and doing most of the housework cause I'm so lazy right now! What are you most looking forward to?
Mr. A: I can't wait to be a Dad. Whether it's a girl or a boy, I can't wait to hold our little glow worm, see them smile and play with them. I can't wait to watch our child grow up and play sports with them and teach them something new everyday. I know my beautiful wife is going to be an amazing Mom and I'm so glad we're doing this together.
Brandi: I love you.
Mr. A: I love you more.
