Hi friends! Thank you so much or all the love and support from my post on Monday! I’m so excited to finally be able to talk about my pregnancy and all things related on the blog. It’s been so so hard to find things to write about because all I want to talk about is the biggest thing that’s going on in our life. So today I thought I’d share a little bit more about just that – Baby Zin!


How far along are you?

I am 13 weeks, 4 days today.

How are you feeling?

Not too bad! Mostly just really tired. The first couple of months were a little but worse. I didn’t have morning sickness per say but I definitely didn’t feel that great either. I had food aversions like crazy too. I’m planning on doing a first trimester recap soon so I will include more details in that.

When did you find out?

May 6th. It was the first weekend that we had moved into my mom’s house so I was panicking that I was going to be throwing up and feeling awful and not even have my own space to do it in. Thankfully I only got sick once and got through just fine.

How did you find out?

I was feeling so very strange that morning. Tommy and I were getting ready to go out for breakfast and I was SO TIRED, with no reason to be as exhausted as I was. I was also really crampy but not period crampy, which really confused me because my period was due to come. I could not stop thinking about being pregnant so I took a test so I could “stop thinking about it” and SURPRISE I was pregnant.

How did you tell Tommy?

I ran down the hall after seeing the positive and looked at him in shock and said, “It says I’m pregnant! I’m not kidding! Oh my god!”

Were you trying?

If you couldn’t tell by my reaction to Tommy, no haha. But we weren’t actively preventing either. Baby was a happy surprise.

Are you going to find out the gender?

YES. I cannot wait to find out next month. Our anatomy scan is on August 21st and I’m planning on having a little gender reveal party just with close friends and family either that day or very soon after. I cannot wait.

Do you have any gender preferences?

Honestly before I got pregnant I only wanted boys. As soon as I became pregnant I literally didn’t care if the baby is a boy or girl. Tommy and I want at least one of each so we really don’t care which comes first.

Are you going to work or be a SAHM?

I am going to stay at home with baby. I am so very thankful that I have this opportunity. I know that a lot of people have the desire to be a SAHM but aren’t able to so I don’t take this lightly. I have always wanted to be a SAHM too so I am very excited.


So that’s just a little but about what’s been going on. Like I mentioned before I’m planning on doing a First Trimester Recap soon also. Let me know if you have any other questions too! Thanks for following along on this fun journey with us.

  • Congratulations, again! This is so exciting! The first trimester is SO exhausting – even if you aren’t sick – but the second trimester is usually way better – at least for me. Enjoy every little bit of it! Motherhood is truly wonderful!

    • Thank you!! <3 I'm so excited to be walking this journey of motherhood. I've always dreamed of being a mom!

    Happy surprises are the best! I feel you on the exhausting thing! I was tired with my first pregnancy but I have been significantly more tired this time around. I’m glad to hear that overall your first trimester wasn’t too bad.

    • I always said I kind of wanted to get pregnant “by surprise” haha! I just thought it would be such a fun surprise and I was right! The tiredness is so real though hahah
