Ted and I are thrilled to announce that we’re having a baby boy!
I’ve been getting lots of questions about how I’ve been feeling, what I’ve been craving, etc. so here goes. I’m feeling great! I have to say that I’ve been really lucky and didn’t really deal with morning sickness during my first trimester unless I let myself get really hungry. I did eat more carbs than usual since a salad sounded like the last thing I wanted to eat some days, but enjoyed being able to get away with eating bread without the guilt. Now that I’m well into my second trimester, my energy level is pretty much back to normal and I’m making sure to eat plenty of protein and veggies. Oh, and ice cream…for the calcium, of course. I’m also keeping up my gym routine, but have replaced more intense classes with pilates for strength and toning. I managed to stick to my pre-pregnancy wardrobe until just a few weeks ago when I finally started to pop. Each weekend has involved a closet cleaning session to keep weekday morning frustration at bay, with my beloved tailored J. Crew dresses and pencil skirts being the first items to go. See ya next spring!
Now that we know the gender, we can really get to decorating the nursery and settling on a name. Ted is a junior, so he’s petitioning for a third, but I’ll need a good nickname so there is no doubt who I’m talking to!
Thanks for reading!
