Let's cut right to the chase here my friends. What I thought was a holiday/New Year slump turned out to be something BIG TIME happening!
Yep - we've got baby #2 on the way! Thanks for all of the Facebook and Instagram love we've already gotten - it sure is fun to share big news!
Isn't it funny how God likes to surprise us with big life stuff when we least expect it? I'll be honest, it took a bit for me to believe it was true - but now that we've seen that little prune (that's its size right now at 10 weeks!) on the ultrasound, we couldn't be happier or more excited! I can't wait to add to our little family and watch Little M become a big sister! She helped tell her Daddy the big news - with a crayon drawing signed "BIG SISTER" waiting for him after work one day. She also helped tell our friends and family...
What else does this mean? I've been running for TWO lately!! I'm not going to lie - I couldn't wait to pull out my favorite For Two Fitness tank and start wearing it again, even if I don't really need a maternity top yet! So far, I've been feeling great and have been able to pretty much maintain my fitness routine before - although I'm running less because I'm not training for anything in particular. This pregnancy has been a little easier on my joints than #1 - probably because everything is already close to where it needs to be!
Throughout this little "New Year Slump/You're Pregnant Life Changing News" I've been trying to figure out what I want to focus on here on the Home Field Blog in 2016. I'm really excited to use this as a place to document pregnancy updates and to spend a little more time sharing and teaching about pre/post pregnancy fitness as well as my favorite kid-friendly workouts! I hope you'll follow me along in this journey and I would love to get to know more fellow fit preggo mamas while we're at it!
Stay posted for my first bump update in a few weeks! Until then, if you want to check out a few of my posts from Pregnancy #1 - you can see them HERE!
