Cory and I knew basically from day one that I was pregnant, so it was a LONG ten months waiting for our little one. I had to go through some infertility treatment; at one point having 5 little eggs in there (eek!), so we didn’t get the go ahead that time. The treatments were not too invasive and once we got the ‘go’ to try, I was pregnant on the first try.
Cory had always felt that he didn’t want to know the sex of the baby, so we didn’t find out. Some people thought we were crazy and had willpower, others thought it was awesome. Not many people do it anymore and there aren’t always good surprises in life, so we waited it out. (By the last few weeks I was going crazy and couldn’t wait to find out, I wanted to buy so many cute outfits!)
I continued to do Crossfit throughout my entire pregnancy, scaling the weights and watching my heart rate. I ate as Paleo and healthy as I felt like doing (baby got what baby wanted!) My pregnancy was pretty easy and fun. I felt good and it was pretty amazing to be growing a life inside me. Hearing the heartbeat for the first time was such a beautiful sound and when Cory got to see the ultrasound I think he was pretty astounded with this little human being in my belly.
First came pregnancy, then came baby (at 41 weeks, two days)…
