Justin and I had way too much fun snapping these pics for our announcement post yesterday. It was just us, the tripod and the wireless shutter release, but we had enough personality and laughs to make it fun.
Since I do these more often, I try to knock it out as quickly as possible. Justin made it fun and even had some ideas of his own for the announcement photo.
He thought it would be fun to try to look like a rocket. When I showed him my advanced photoshop “rocket-like” additions to this concept, he agreed that the hand holding one was better. I can’t believe he wasn’t impressed with my skills.
*this is not how babies are made.
We had fun. Laughed a lot. And sweat way too much (it was about 85 and humid).
So, just to address a possible elephant in the room: naturally, I’ll write a bit about pregnancy and baby stuff on my blog but I still plan on writing about the same stuff from before I became pregnant. I am looking forward to filming more hair tutorials, and monthly favorites videos! I really had to chill out these past few weeks since I was fairly ill and e-x-h-a-u-s-t-e-d.
Thank you all so much for your kind words yesterday. I was truly so excited to share our news with you, and was overwhelmed with your excitement in return. Thanks again.
First Trimester Notes:
-So midnight feedings start at about week 7. I was pretty nauseous throughout the entire first trimester, which led to me not eating a ton (mostly crackers and ginger ale). I would wake up in the middle of the night absolutely starving and have to go downstairs and eat a bowl of cereal. Walking past my sleeping cats at 2:30a to go eat was both laughable and ridiculous.
-Bloat arrives quickly and lingers for many weeks. Wowza.
-Emotions are running on high. I’ve always been an emotional person, but now it’s just over the top. It takes almost nothing to get my nose stinging and eyes tearing up. It’s going to be a water-proof mascara several months for me!
-It’s been hard to find a diaper bag I like. I know I have a very long time until I need one, but I started browsing around online and can’t find anything that is striking a cord with me.
-Ultrasounds are pretty incredible. We heard the heartbeat at week 8 and again at week 11. It’s so surreal to be looking up at a tv screen seeing what is inside me. At the 11 week ultrasound we saw the tiny legs and arms too which was pretty awesome.
