And One More Makes Three...
I've been keeping a big secret all summer long and finally I'm excited to say: we're having a baby! Our little guy or girl (we're finding out in two weeks!) will be here in February, which feels like a long time and so, so soon.
Nick and I are so ready to start this next chapter in our lives. It's something we've been talking about for awhile, though it was quite the journey to get here. I'll admit that I am equal parts nervous and extremely happy. Even though we always talked about starting a family, I don't know if I ever envisioned myself as a mom. That's where some of the nervousness comes in. But I also know I want to be a mom and experience everything that comes with this new stage in my life.
I'm planning on writing all about the first trimester but just in case I don't (school prep starts back up next week), let me summarize by saying it was not fun. You may have noticed fewer posts and a lack of posts on Twitter and Instagram. I was so tired that I simply couldn't do much. At the end of June, after school let out, I was sometimes taking two naps a day! I also had some nausea but thankfully not a ton of morning sickness. Thankfully the second trimester is here and I have a lot more energy.
So what does this mean for Wear She Blossoms?
Honestly, I don't know. Since my rough first trimester made taking outfit photos difficult and not very fun, I started to rethink how I want to blog and what I want to blog about.
I still want Wear She Blossoms to be about doing and wearing what makes you feel happy. But this blog has always been about wearing and doing as seen through my eyes so I'm probably going to share a bit of what I'm going through with this pregnancy.
Wear She Blossoms most likely won't become a mommy blog but I am looking forward to sharing a few helpful things for you readers who are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant. One of the things I'm having the hardest time with is finding cute and/or functional maternity clothes for work and the weekend. I'm only showing a little bit but yea, it definitely feels like there's a little burrito in there and buttoning my jeans is kind of uncomfortable. I also want to share what I'm experiencing because I found a lot of comfort in finding pregnancy/fertility statements beyond the "typical" pregnancy story. So if that makes me a "mommy blogger" then I guess I'll have to deal with that when it comes.
