Yay for May: Exciting News!

Baby Whitmore

Not a party feature or recipe today! It’s BABY news! I’m so excited to announce that my husband and I are expecting. We are totally over the moon ecstatic. Baby Whitmore is due May 3, 2014! I put a few updates below, but if you’d be interested in me writing a few more “baby update” posts, let me know. You can also follow me on instagram (@pizzazzerie) for more.

How Have I Been Feeling: Much better now that I’m almost at the 2nd trimester! I was not one of the “lucky” ones who escaped the 1st trimester without morning sickness. Oh no, I had it bad. That is why things have been a little bit quiet around here, and I really appreciate you loyal readers hanging on with me! I have lots of fun posts coming your way soon. As for now, I’m very tired (as in went to bed at 7pm last night tired), but feeling human again! Wahoo!!

Other Symptoms: Tired at 3pm, still having slight morning sickness, my back gets very hot while my front is cold (I need a snuggie, obviously), strange dreams

Size of Baby: This week, baby is a PEACH!

Will You Find Out Gender: We will! My “mother’s intuition” says boy (for the record) but I will be thrilled to pieces with a boy or a girl.

How is Henry Taking the News: Our dog Henry has yet to really learn about the fact that he will be demoted come spring, so he is still basking in the spotlight for a little while longer.

Cravings: Green beans, oatmeal, taco salads

Food Aversions: All things sweet (so sad, right?!?!)

Thanks for all your sweet support!

    Congratulations Courtney! There are worse things to crave than green beans. :) I had an aversion to the smell of cheese with my second, which was highly inconvenient — fortunately it let up some after the first trimester.

    So excited for you Courtney! Of course you know you’ll be a fantastic Mama! I had similar sweet (and bread?!) aversions during pregnancy. Enjoy every minute. HUGS!!

    YAY is right! Congrats, Courtney – I’m so happy for you! So much amazing stuff lies ahead :) And I agree that you’re going to be a fantastic mom!

    Also agree with the comments of trying to get extra sleep right now, as hard as it is for a go-getter to heed that advice – but my youngest is almost 2 years old and we STILL have many sleepless nights with her that kind of come in spurts (for example, she woke up at 2am last night and never went back down)… so take advantage of extra zzz’s while you can! And if you’re a movie person go see lots of movies while you’re pregnant! Oh, how I miss movie theaters. ;)

    Congratulations Courtney!!!! What exciting news and how great to be pregnant during the holidays – makes it even more special {in my opinion}. Enjoy every second!!!!!
