Great Expectations


I'M PREGNANT!  My husband and I are so excited to be expecting our first child in 2013!  Yesterday was my husband's 30th birthday and he really wanted to tell his friends and more family yesterday even though we've been keeping this a secret since we found out.

I took a little bit of a blogging break last week because I was feeling pretty crappy and dressing up decent for work just wasn't happening.  In fact, you can pretty much tell in the past couple weeks the days where I just wasn't feeling it...Exhibit A:


What does me being pregnant mean for this blog?  Nothing...except that my belly is going to get bigger.  In fact, it already has.  This will be my first child so I have absolutely no flipping clue about motherhood nor pregnancy.  I am reading books now but I would just sound silly trying to talk about my pregnancy on this blog but shoes...shoes I know (thanks Carrie Bradshaw!)

I started this blog so I can look back on my last year of my 20s and transitioning to my 30s.  I want to look back and see what I was doing, where I was going, what I was wearing, etc.  Now, I can look back at my pregnancy and I just think that will be so neat.  I obviously will still be working so I'm looking forward to dressing to work with a big belly and see what I can come up with.  I follow some pretty fashionable mommy bloggers but I'd love some more recommendations!

Oh and I know the picture below is TMI but if you really want to know what type of person I am...I had to take 5 different tests JUST to make sure...type A, obsessive personality?  Yep, that's me :-)

    I didn't see this blog on your list so I thought I would pass it along. Marion is currently pregnant and the absolute cutest dresser. I think you will like her.

  29. Congratulations! I hope that you and your husband have a healthy, happy baby.
    Contrary to what you may see on other blogs, it's okay to wear maternity clothes. I wore them with both of my kids. Maternity has changed ALOT. Wearing clothes one or two sizes larger will just make you look bigger. Maternity is meant to fit your body size and only the belly part is larger.
    As far as babies go, trust your gut (maternal instinct). When you get unsolicited advice, just say thank you. I said thank you. Alot!
