Yesterday, I turned the big 3-0. I’m officially in my 30s! If you asked me how I’d be spending my 30th birthday four months ago, I would’ve told you, “At a club with my friends, sippin’ champagne!”
So what changed? What happened these past four months? Well, I’m certainly not drinking alcohol. Heck, I’m not even drinking coffee!
Have you guessed it yet? My very, very special news?
Err, WE’RE pregnant!
Yes, we’re pregnant! Lu and I are expecting! We’re having a baby!
I’ve dreamed of the day when I’d tell my family and friends that I was having a baby with the love of my life. I didn’t know who the love of my life would be or what he would look like, I just knew I’d be 30 (yes, I used to be a huge planner!)
What I never imagined in my wildest dreams was having hundreds of thousands of people to share the news with and that’s all of YOU. When I first got pregnant, my initial reaction was to call my family, but then, I thought, “I can’t wait for my Inspiralized family to find out!” It was a whole new level of excitement!
Lu and I are over-the-moon joyful right now. We have been holding this huge secret from our friends for these past few months, and are now so happy to share the news! We’re a bit over 15 weeks pregnant.
I’m currently in Florida with my three best girl friends, my sister, her fiancé, and my parents, celebrating. We’re celebrating the start of my 30th year, but most importantly, this new baby boy or girl that’s going to be joining our family in September!
I’ll be sharing more about the pregnancy (like how we found out, if we’re finding out the gender, how the first trimester has been, etc), but not on this blog. Inspiralized will continue to be an online community and resource for spiralizing. I’ll be sharing all pregnancy related updates on my lifestyle blog, alissandrab.
If you want to stay up to date on our pregnancy/know a more personal side of the woman behind Inspiralized, then make sure you bookmark alissandrab and if you’d like, subscribe to the newsletter for e-mail updates.
In the meantime, anyone expecting? Better yet, anyone due in September?
And for those mamas out there already – TELL ME EVERYTHING. Favorite products, helpful pregnancy websites and accounts, maternity brands, best advice you ever got while pregnant. Lay it on me!
Thank you in advance for all the kind birthday wishes and congrats! All of your love means the world to me!
Now back to that mocktail on the beach!
