{10.3} on the first few weeks of pregnancy.

I have to admit that I didn't plan to tell most of my friends and family that I was pregnant for another few weeks from now, but as soon as I told my parents, the secret started leaking fast. Fast meaning that by the next day all my family in Jamaica already knew. I called another aunt in Florida to tell her and she already knew...it was ridiculous! We figured everyone would be excited, but jeez, lol! Hubby and I then decided we may as well tell the people closest to us, instead of them hearing from someone else - and now the cat is out of the bag in our closest circle.

West Indian people are very superstitious about telling people they're expecting before a certain time, so there is one side of me that is terrified - and the other side that assures me that as long as I believe in God, I shouldn't be superstitious at all. Only 2 or 3 people I know actually know, actually know about this blog - so I feel that I can speak openly (to some extent) without people who I don't want in my business, being in my business...lol...if that makes sense.After telling a friend that I was expecting, she tagged me in a facebook status congratulating me on the news, and I was horrified. If you are reading this, please don't feel bad - I'm hormonal and paranoid about everything these days, resulting in me untagging myself. No big deal!

The week after I found out I was pregnant, I was at the doctors office literally everyday for 5 days straight. Between all the random tests, blood being drawn and a tramatic pap smear in front of my husband - it was a lot! The highlight of that week was doing my first sonogram...but that's for another post.

(sidebar) how crazy do I look in this pic?
can u tell i was tired and look forward to bloodwork and
all the other madness they did to me that day?

I hate going to the doctor and I fear needles - but I get excited to go to the doctors now. I'm always anxious to make sure that everything is ok with Baby and that I'm also doing my part. I'm so excited to go next week and to another appointment the week after. So far Hubby has been to every appointment, and since he's spoiled me with that luxury, I hope that he can continue to make all of them. Afterall, he's the one that's been holding my hand everytime I get stuck with a needle, and making sure to simultaneously whisper in my ear that this is all to make sure that our child is healthy.

FUNNY STORY: I was so thirsty at work today! My mouth was literally dry despite frequent trips to the water cooler. I told my husband about my unusual day and he started cracking up! He said that last night when I was sleeping, he talked to the baby for about half an hour, and told him or her to make sure that I drank a lot of water today so that I keep him/her hydrated. We laughed at that for about 5 minutes on the way home. Is Baby already being obidient to Daddy? Or is a coincidence? We'll never know...

PS: I'm so excited to show off the new look of my blog courtesy of Blush Ink! I've been reading Kelly's blog for over a year now and was over the moon when she opened up her template shop. I fell in love with this design the moment I saw it! Of course I had to have it! Finally this blog look has some personality and the look is more of a reflection of me!

{10.1} i'll take a gray nursery please!

I'm not sure if Baby will have his or her own nursery at this point, but if it works out, I've been obsessing about painting the walls gray! I love gray walls! Our bedroom is a deep gray which I'm obsessed with and I would love a light gray for Baby - I'm not into completly blue or pink walls. I found these inspiration photos on Made By Girl that I've been swooning over the past few days...

thank u + le circus

First off, I would like to say thank you so much to everyone that left congratulatory comments and well wishes regarding my pregnancy. Myself, the hubby and the rest of our family are so excited and can't wait to meet the bundle of joy this Fall. There's been so much going on and so much to share, but I can'tseem to keep my eyes open. I'm fortunate not to have too many pregnancy symtoms, but exhaustion is kicking my a**! I've worked 12 hours on my feet before and have never been as tired as I am now, even if I'm not doinganything, lol. I do have a stuffy nose in the mornings for no reason, and had morning sickness for thefirst (and hopefully only time) this past Friday - where I threw up my breakfast right in front the entrance of my job...yup! Hope you don't have that visual stuck in your head, lol. Otherwise, there's nothing to complain about, and as soon as I start getting my energy back, I'd like to start blogging regularly again.

Last week we went out to Long Island to go to the circus with my dad, sister, brother in law, my nieces and my brother in laws cousins. It was so much fun to look at and I was having a good time, until all of a sudden my eyes started closing on me. I get tired at the most random times! It's kind of embarressing, lol...but I heard it guess better during the 2nd trimester. In any event, it was a fun day with the family, the kids enjoyed it and I did somehow manage to stay awake for the whole thing.

enjoy your Sunday and many blessings on the week ahead!

spring time dress up!

We've been getting a touch of spring here in New York and I'm so excited! With that being said, I'm well aware that I won't be able to fit in my current non-winter gear that I've yet to unpack since the move. There's nothing I love better than wearing dresses, and I've found a couple at Forever 21 that I think will be able to grow with me. I'm scared of buying maternity clothes so I'm hoping that going a size or two bigger in fabrics that stretch will suffice for the upcoming season.

just a reminder.

new purchase: Black Boots!

My shoe collection is garbage right now! Living in Florida for the past few years, my shoes were mainly consisted of slippers, flip flops and the occassional boot for when it got a little chilly. Now that I'm back in the Big Apple, my closet is very limited and in desperate need of revamping. Lucky for me the husband gifted me with these boots this morning, as we killed time before I had to go to work. They were on sale at Bakers! I love a chucky heel (since I'm not too good at balancing with super skinny heels) and since they're only 3.5 tall, they're super comfortable and feel more like sneakers!

My clothes need revamping as well, but since I'm loosing weight, I decided to make due with what I have instead of wasting money on clothes that won't fit in a couple months!

I'm loving my new boots! Hopefully I'll actually leave the house this weekend so that I can wear them :)
