BIG NEWS: I'm Pregnant

Well, let me just drop the big news right away: I'M PREGNANT! Currently I'm 17 weeks and my due date is 2 january 2016. We are going to have a winter child.

I'm so happy and feeling blessed with this little miracle growing inside me. I never suspected that I will get pregnant that soon. I stopped with birth control after our trip to Florida in march this year and I got pregnant after that.

When I was holding the positive pregnancy test I was overwhelmed with joy, but also fear. It got pregnant so fast. I wasn't prepared for it. I mean, I wanted to become a mommy. I wanted to have a child with my soulmate Erik. But I thought it would take at least 6 to 12 months before getting pregnant. I never suspected that I would get pregnant, right after quitting with birth control.

But the fear remained. I worried if everything was going alright with the baby. I stopped worrying after our first ultra sound. At that time I was 8 weeks and seeing that heartbeat, made everything alright. I lost my fear and I could finally enjoy my pregnancy.

Well, not totally enjoying it. Hello morning sickness. Or you can better call it: all day sickness. I was sick for weeks. I could only lay on the couch or in bed. After passing the 12 weeks mark, I finally was feeling better. The nausea dissapeared and I got more energy day by day.

Here is our little miracle at 12 weeks and 4 days. And at that point I heard the heartbeat for the first time. It was so emotional and joyful at the same time. I cried.

Right now I'm feeling so much better and I already felt the baby three times. We call him/her 'plop', because the first time I felt it, it was like a bubble was plopping against the inside of my belly. It were two small plops.

I thinking about doing weekly pregnancy vlogs from now on. I will first cover the first 3 months of being pregnant and then I will update weekly about my pregnancy.

Oh and I'm engaged. Erik popped the question on 20th of may. We're getting married on september 2th this year. I'm so excited! 2016 is a great year for us.


  1. All of this is so exciting!!! I got engaged earlier this year (but we set the date for next year) and then got pregnant soon after too! I'm 17 weeks and 3 days and due New Year's Eve with a little girl :). I really enjoy doing weekly bumpdates and I think I might print them all out and put them in a binder or something. I also struggled with morning sickness. The last midwife I saw on Friday wants me to wean myself off of Diclegis (what I had to be on for morning sickness) and I'm scared to death to do so. Good luck with everything and I hope to read more from you soon :)
