Sorry I’ve been so absent from the blog over the last few months… but I’ve been a little busy (and tired 😴) from growing big for someone small and special. 🤍 Things are about to get REAL and I hope you’ll follow along on this journey to motherhood with me.
Today’s post is the first of probably many in my pregnancy series. I’ll be sharing my announcement shoot pictures (taken by Allie) and a quick update on my experiences and events leading up to now, to get you all caught up!
It took my husband and I about a year to finally learn the news that we were going to grow our family! We’ve kept this little one a secret since February… before all of the darkness-the chaos- the world turning upside down. And it’s been our light! 🕯
I will be forever grateful to Allie who stepped up already very early on as an amazing Auntie. She was there for me to pick up my slack when I was too tired and nauseous to do anything. She’s always been there for me through ever milestone and I can’t wait to see her as an aunt! I appreciate her willingness and mad photog skills for this shoot too. These were very intimate and private and there’s no one else I would want around.
As you know from my very last post, I continued to work during the pandemic as an essential healthcare worker, and had to keep my nausea, fatigue, and big secret at bay. Though confusing and trying at times. I will look back on these unprecedented few months as a blessing. Social distancing and quarantining assured my health and safety, and it made it easier to keep my secret hidden for as long as possible. It was also a blessing to be forced to stay at home to rest and recover on the weekends, which I desperately needed during my first trimester.
Next week’s post will be my guide to first trimester must-haves. I’m a first time mom and I’m learning as I go, but I hope that I can share products that made life a little easier and more comfortable during each phase of these changes. I hand picked and personally used each of the products in next week’s post and I’ll explain why I recommend each one.
If you have requests for any new-mom content for future blog posts, I’d love for you to send me a DM on Instagram at @inourstyleblog. I hope to provide as much help and insight to those also navigating this new season of their life.
