We are having a baby!
We are super excited for this new adventure that we are on, and I can’t wait to share more.
I went back and forth on whether or not I wanted to share this directly on the blog, but many of you have been with me for years, and I haven’t really done a life update in a very long time.
I completely understand that a pregnancy announcement can lead to mixed feelings, and both good and bad judgment/advice/etc. Also, I do not plan on having things change around here on Making Sense of Cents, as personal finance is still what this website is all about.
Anyway, this is exciting news for us, as Baby Gardner is due in December 2021!
We are so excited to share that we will be starting our greatest adventure yet, and we can’t wait to show our new family member the world.
Pregnancy has been interesting so far, with lots of nausea (but I actually haven’t thrown up at all) for the past couple of months. Eating has been difficult, which feels crazy because I’m usually a huge eater and will eat anything. But, pregnancy has led to a lot of food aversions.
I am starting to feel better now, though, so I am hoping to get ahead in work, do as many fun things as I can, and prepare for the new family addition as best as we can.
I know that many of you are probably wondering (this is the number one question that I’ve received so far)- Our plan for right now is to live with our new family member on our boat. We plan on taking it slow but eventually doing a lot of travel with our new family member by boat, van, plane, etc.
Please leave a comment below:
- If you have any books or blogs that you recommend I read about pregnancy, starting a family, work/life balance as a parent, traveling families, etc.
- If you have any positive advice or kind words that you’d like to share
- If you have any questions for me.
Thank you so much for following along on my journey over the years. Things are about to get even more interesting!
Have a great week!
