If you haven’t heard the news on Inspiralized already, well, here it is:

LU AND I ARE EXPECTING A BABY. IN SEPTEMBER!

THERE’S A BABY GROWING INSIDE MY TUMMY!!!

I’m currently in Florida celebrating with my family and three best girlfriends, but I just had to share the news with all of you!

I’ll be sharing everything about this pregnancy here on this blog, including a first trimester recap this week!

if you have any questions, leave them in the comments! and, TELL ME EVERYTHING. best pregnancy advice you have, product recommendations, best maternity wear, etc. I want to hear it all!

and if anyone’s expecting, let me know!

thank you in advance for all the kindness and love. we are overjoyed and so full of love. we’re so happy to grow our family and can’t wait for what’s to come!

    I am so excited for you. I started following you a few months ago and you’ve helped inspire me to write my own food blog. I bought my domain name a couple weeks ago, Healthy Food Mama. I am also pregnant with my 2nd (very early, haven’t had first ultrasound yet). Being a mom is life changing, with all the ios and downs it brings. But more ups! I will also be blogging about parenting πŸ™‚ thank you for being you, I’ve never wrote a blogger before but your authenticity is so refreshing.

    Congrats!! I’m pregnant with number 2 due in June! So excited for you! I worked out during both my pregnancies and I feel like it has helped me have easy pregnancies and even better recoveries. I got a lot of maternity clothes from old navy, gap and target. Old navy has great workout clothes in maternity…but I’m 31 weeks now and still wearing my
    Normal leggings with maternity tops. I also use burts bees mama butter on my stomach and didn’t get any stretch marks first time around! Excited to read about your journey!

    I can’t wait to follow along. I’m a grandma but my two daughters and I love you and we all spiralize so we are excited! I told my daughter a couple of weeks ago I thought you were pregnant because you got a bigger apartment. She said no because of your career. I am so glad I was right.

    Congratulations!!! Such wonderful news! Wishing you and Lu all the happiness in the world. Must say "I knew it"…. from the hints πŸ˜‰ We know you’ll take good care of yourself, your baby and your husband along this journey (you already are). No kids for me so no advice – I’ll just enjoy reading your posts as usual. πŸ™‚
