I’m so excited to share this news…we’ve known for a while and we’ve told friends and family….but, now it’s official – Facebook official 😉
We’re expecting our first baby – yay!
We’re elated and after a rough first trimester, I’m happy to say that I (almost) feel like my old self again. No more nausea and no more sleeping for 2 hours around lunch time just to make it through the day. I feel like I don’t have a ‘fairytale’ or ‘enjoyable’ pregnancy like some other women – and this is most definitely not what I envisioned when I dreamed about being pregnant. But, after going through a miscarriage earlier this year I’ll take whatever is coming my way – as long as our baby is healthy!
I had the privilege to tell a few close friends the exciting news face-to-face when I was in Cape Town a couple of months ago. For the ‘official’ announcement after the 12 week mark, we sent out two different announcements.
This one you may have seen on my Instagram account.
And this one is what we posted on Facebook.
I really wanted to do something fun for our Facebook announcement that captures ‘us.’ Our dogs are definitely like our children, and I knew I wanted them to be part of the announcement.
So yes, that is what is happen in the van Staden household at the moment 🙂 Lots of planning, reading and DIY’ing. I have quite a clear vision of what I want to do with the nursery (in short…grey, white and bunnies!) and I’ll be sharing more nursery décor ideas, maternity outfit ideas and tips and more as we progress through this journey.
I hope you’re all doing well and that you’re making the most of the last few weeks left of this year. Talk again soon!
