This past January my husband and I welcomed our first child into the world! She is absolutely amazing and we love her soooooo much. It’s hard to imagine our family without her in it! I thought I’d share with you my journey before, during and post pregnancy. This will be a 4 Part series on Baby G’s birth story including:
- Part 1: Finding Out
- Part 2: Pregnancy
- Part 3: Labor and Delivery
- Part 4: Post Baby & Recovery
Hope you all enjoy reading a little bit into our story and our family. Feel free to comment how your pregnancy journey was, I would love to hear about it 🙂
Without further ado, here is Part 1: Finding Out…
Part 1: Finding Out
May 7th, 2016 changed my husband and I’s lives forever… the day before Mother’s Day we found we were going to be parents! We hadn’t been trying to have a baby but we also weren’t preventing it either, so it was more of a pleasant surprise than a shock.
I woke up that morning, knowing I was a few days late from “that time of the month.” I remember feeling a little extra tired and I had a sore back the previous week, but I just assumed it was from starting my new full time job and sitting at a desk every day. I thought to myself, well I guess it wouldn’t hurt to take a pregnancy test. Even though we weren’t preventing a pregnancy, I really wasn’t expecting a positive result. I had taken many pregnancy tests before that (newlywed paranoia :D) and they all had been negative so I wasn’t thinking too much into this one.
