weekly update

Jeff and Lisa Allen of Salty Lashes

We want to thank everyone for all the kind words and well wishes over on Instagram, it really means a lot to have support, so thank you! It’s been trickier than I expected to keep this pregnancy a secret. Number four is no joke when it comes to showing, wow! If you follow me on LunchPails and Lipstick you may have noticed lots of jackets, sweaters, bags, etc trying to conceal my bump. haha, so awkward when it’s been 80-90 degrees here.

We found out at 6 weeks. A missed period is usually the obvious sign, right? For me, it was how I felt. Bloated, grumpy, tired. Jeff and I knew we wanted kids together,  and this summer decided we would start trying for a baby in six months. Little did we know during a couple of those convos we were already pregnant! I told Jeff while he was working in the garage. How romantic, huh? You know what’s even better than that? I took Goldie with me to buy the pregnancy tests at the dollar store. She got a light up watch, I got 3 tests.

I feel good, I’ve had one scare that will be fine, but my doctor wants me to stay away from the gym for awhile which is really hard for me. I had been doing my normal 5 days a week lifting and just cut out plyometrics and cardio, but now I’ve been told to stay away completely for a few more weeks. We’ll see how well that goes..

Guess what?? We already know if it’s a boy or a girl! We haven’t decided if we’ll share the news anytime soon. Normally you find out through ultrasound around 18-20 weeks, but I had some blood work done that included DNA testing so we already know at 13 weeks…crazy!

Because it’s been so long since I’ve had a baby, I’m totally out of the loop on gear and products. Please email (lashes.salty@gmail.com), DM, text me your favorite brands in all things baby. I’d love to hear your suggestions and start my research! Have a great night!

P.S. In case you didn’t see the kids reaction, check it.
