WE ARE PREGNANT!
Updated: May 4, 2018
So I guess we can't keep this secret any longer...we are expecting our first little human in October! Knowing that I am going to be a mom is something that I find hard to put into words. We are extremely grateful and excited to be starting on this journey into parenthood. Three months in and I'm already in awe of how your body changes as it prepares to grow this tiny little MSA (Mini Spence Aims) . For as long as I can remember I've wanted to be a mom and it is so surreal that this day has finally come. I can not wait to watch Spencer grow into a dad, I can not wait for the daily triumphs and even the daily challenges. I can not wait to hold our baby for the first time and to watch them grow and learn. I'm SO ready to raise him/her to be the best version of themselves because I know deep in my heart that this is what I was meant to do.
Now for the juicy details! The first few weeks I was fairly noxious but can proudly say that I never threw up. Haha. I think the biggest challenge for me was the exhaustion, I felt like I could have slept for days. I also had lots of food aversions, I wanted nothing to do with the normal foods that I love. Some days I felt like I was going crazy and it was all in my head haha, but I would simply remind myself "I'M GROWING A BABY!!!" As we are winding down the first trimester I am starting to feel back to normal. . . well I guess the new normal. I certainly do not have my flat abs anymore and a small pouch has started to form, by the end of the evening I am extremely bloated as a little belly protrudes. Sunday mornings are my favorite because it is the start of a new week and I get to read about the new developments in our baby. But more than anything, I am just overwhelmingly happy.
Now I've never understood when people say, "God spoke to me". Um what? How did he speak to you? What was his voice like? How often does he answer back? Why doesn't he talk to me? Welp if God has ever spoken to me, it was on the day we found out we were pregnant. We were on vacation and Spencer was golfing while I was getting a facial. During my facial something (God presumedly) kept telling me, 'Aimee you need to take a pregnancy test'. I kept arguing back, 'No I want to keep partying.' By the end of the facial I had not come to a decision whether I was going to take the test or not. I couldn't help but think, why bother it's not like I'm even late? As I was walking back to the resort to get breakfast a lady says to me, "Wow, you are glowing!" It caught me off guard. Who says that!? Now I knew I had no choice but to take the darn test. My body went into full auto pilot and I found myself in the hotel room awaiting my results. Click the video below to watch my reaction to finding out the news, Spencers reaction when I told him and all the loved ones that we were able to get on camera.
I'm just so grateful to God for giving me this opportunity to become a mom and will be sharing this journey for those who wish to follow.
