SURPRISE: Our family is growing!

This has been one of the hardest secrets to keep (& I am an AWFUL secret keeper) but finally we can share our biggest secret ever… we made a human, we’re pregnant! Baby Degreff is due in October!! We’re SO excited to grow our clan (well, maybe Claude isn’t excited to not be an only child-dog haha). The thing I didn’t realize before becoming pregnant is just how scary and worrisome the first trimester is. There’s so much waiting involved, so many big landmark weeks or doctors visits and so much of it is just trusting that your body is going to work right, which is really hard to do. I am a lover of being in control, so this past few months was not easy. I counted down the days to every doctors visit, and spent way too many hours reading mommy forums! I had no idea how much I would care about a blastocyst of cells growing inside of me from the get-go, but it is true. Those instincts kicked in so quickly for me, and I just wanted to protect and keep my baby safe from the very start, as I’m sure every mom does!

I also felt a weird anxiety about sharing, I am not sure if some of you felt this way too. It just felt so nice keeping it between Matt and I for as long as we could, and having it be our little secret. We shared with our family at around 10 weeks (I sent them this in the mail with tons of glitter in the envelope, needless to say it was one of those days I will never forget). After that we slowly shared the news with friends, and celebrated and then I felt ready for the world to know. I am so excited to bring you along on this journey that is truly surreal for me.

It’s pretty awesome to think some of you witnessed our engagement, wedding and now our first baby on this blog! Hopefully I’ll have a little bump to dress soon… We already know the gender and will be sharing really soon 🙂

Love a very excited Steffy & Matt! ♥♥
