Me My Life Pregnancy

Pregnant!

Brandon and I are going to have a baby!

I’m 13 weeks along and the due date is April 14. I had a pretty rocky first trimester, which is why I didn’t want to say anything right away. I was on bed rest for a while and there was a lot of bleeding and cramping and worrying, but I’m (we’re!) doing much better now.

The upside of having to go in several times for emergency doctor visits and ultrasounds is that we got some very early pictures of our little blob – I mean baby!

Baby!
It really does just look like a little blob at 6 and 8 weeks.

And of course, Brandon tricked me a few weeks ago into taking a barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen photo. Oh, you should have seen his face as I figured out what he was doing! Too proud of himself on that one. ;)

Anyway, we’re thrilled to finally announce the news. We’re having a baby!

    Congratulations Nicole and Brandon! And also- I was totally on to you! Baby references have been cropping up on Making It Lovely for weeks, but I knew it wasn’t my place to say anything.

    I can’t wait to follow this exciting new phase of your lives!

    Anyway – I just recently came across your blog and I’m addicted! You’re very talented and I’m loving your style. I’m quite jealous, though, as I have an interior design degree and have lost absolutely all of my talent since graduation. You’re giving me a little inspiration, at least!

    Anyway – enjoy being pregnant!! I had a rough start, too, and it’s been smooth sailing since the 2nd trimester – I hope yours is smooth sailing, too!

Now we know what has been going on! How exciting! Congrats on such great news and I can’t wait to see how this new addition becomes incorporated into all of your designs.
