So if you haven't had a chance to read my latest IG posts (cuz so many just like the pic and keep scrolling) I AM PREGNANT! I am with child yall! I know it may sound like a surprise to some because I never really shared that I may want another child.The funny thing is I did, eventually lol.This pregnancy was not planned...by me for the most part lol.It takes two to get knocked up and apparently my husband was low key scheming on ya Caribbean cowgirl.
So how did I found out I was pregnant? In a very dramatic way of course.I started noticing weird changes like getting really hot at night.When I mean really hot I mean the mattress felt like it had a built in heater.Every night I was so hot I could not take it and I am usually cold so I got a bit concerned.I was feeling cramps and bloating just waiting for Aunt Flo as usual to come and leave like any other unwanted relative, but she was a no-show. "Thas weird, she should be here by now.She will be here next week" I told myself and continued to live in denial.I finally realized something was up when I woke up one morning ,exuse my language, and realized my nipples got black as shit.They went from Caramel Macchiato to straight up black coffee no sugar no cream.I was shook!
I immediately knew what I needed to do.My best friend is a nurse so I called her,after I got off work to quickly tell her my 'nipple news'.In my frantic ,I quickly sent her research (aka a pic of my boobs) for her to examine.I mean I could have easily taken a pregnancy test, but who had time for that?! I trusted my friend would tell me the full 'boob truth' and she did. She dropped another breast bombshell on me."Neek, why are your boobs so big?!".Oh shit, oh shit bishhh I am knocked up for real! I am really shook by now so I call hubs that night to get a test so I can take in the morning.I wake up (back in denial), pee on the stick, and not even before I can finish expelling all the urine from my bladder....BOOM TWO LINES.I NEVER EVEN STOOD A CHANCE.I immediately cried and yell for hubs.I don't know what I expected him to do (cry maybe? be dramatic with me? men are so undramatic when drama is needed) he just hugged me as I hyperventilated and thought about all my size XS clothes , my abs (well I almost had one coming in),and how I sick I felt the first time I was pregnant.
My dress is from a local boutique and is currently sold out! You can find the same wrap maxi in great summer prints below from another boutique I just found called Sonia's Kloset Boutique (IG @soniaskloset )
After talking myself off of a ledge (metaphorically), crying and confiding my my closest gal pals, and saying farewell (for now) to my abs I began to accept the 2nd term as mommy-in-slay.
I can say I am a lot more excited this time around because I am older and know what to expect and some do's and don'ts:
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
