Honey We’re Pregnant!!!

We are thrilled to share our exciting news with you that our precious family of three will soon be expanding to four!  Growing up with brothers of my own, I’ve always wanted James to have a sibling and now he will have one come March.  He’s super happy and has already picked out names:  ‘Hulk Smash’ for a boy and ‘Little Callie’ for a girl.  Don’t you just love that?!

Birth Announcement

Sometimes I still can’t believe that I’m actually pregnant and going to have a baby (although the nausea and exhaustion is a good reminder!) but I couldn’t be happier.  Since James has been our “angel baby” and just so very easy since the beginning, we might have a bit of baby amnesia and could be in for quite a shock come March!  And our due date is just days away from James’ birthday.  
Birth Announcement
I shared our news on Insta and a few clever friends noticed that, yes, as timing would have it, I was actually already pregnant when I competed in my competition in July.  I was shocked myself to learn just days days before the contest date that we were expecting!  Trust me, I’d rather be pregnant any day than dieting and competing, but I’m glad it happened close enough to the end to finish what I’d started.  And now my body is changing in a whole other, glorious way!  At 13 weeks now, I’m definitely starting to show that baby bump. 
Birth Announcement
I’ll be sure to keep you updated along the way and will share more details of what the last few months have been like soon.  We have so much to be thankful for and I’m really happy to finally be sharing this experience with you!  
Can you believe it?!?!

    CONGRATS!!!! That is awesome! We are expecting our second in March 2016 and cannot wait!

    Congratulations!!!! All of a sudden that new big boy room makes even more sense ; ). My boys are 2 and a half years apart (my 7 year old starts 2nd grade tomorrow help me), and having a second baby was even more life changing than the first time around with new baby love, and in the best way possible. I wish you the absolute best and enjoy your time as a family of 3 while you wait for your new sweetpea

    This is so exciting! I found your Blog while searching for blogs about pregnancy weight loss and read your post from 2011. Great article and I look forward to following you through the rest of this pregnancy. I'm 8 days away from my due date and struggling with the end of pregnancy weight-gain but I'm almost there! I hope we can stay in touch!
