I guess it’s about time to make the “official” announcement here on our blog…
Nate and I are expecting our first baby! Baby Ritter is due to arrive in the middle of August which makes me 5 months pregnant (or 22 weeks for those of you who want specifics).
Baby Ritter has been wonderful to me so far and has caused no morning sickness, no crazy hormonal imbalances and I’m feeling wonderful. Baby has also been very cooperative at all my prenatal appointments:
- We heard the heartbeat at 9 weeks (about 2 weeks sooner than usual)
- We found out we’re having a BOY (!!) at 13 weeks (about 7 weeks sooner than usual)
- And I started feeling him move and kick at 16 weeks (about 3 weeks sooner than usual)
I guess he’s just very eager to let us know all about him and that he’s doing great. He has graduated from ounces and now weighs a whopping pound and is 8 inches long.
Obviously there are some major life changes coming up for us with the arrival of this little one but for now, Nate and I are just enjoying our last 4 months with just us two. We have no idea, nor do we pretend to know, how our lives will change but after 7 years of marriage we figured we needed a challenge (hahaha).
