It's the time of year when we're constantly surrounded by reminders of love. Hearts, flowers, chocolates...and...babies! As another precious couple prepares for the most special of gifts, we are thrilled to feature their journey to parenthood. Jennifer is counting down the days until she meets her little bundle, and we're here to share a few of her mother-to-be thoughts and experiences with you.
IBB: What is your favorite part of being pregnant?
JK: Oh my gosh, there are so many favorites…the love that I already have for this little guy, and we haven’t even met yet is truly overwhelming and totally indescribable. Also, feeling him move has been not only amazing but comforting as well. It’s a special bonding period for us, and I know I will definitely miss it, so I’m soaking in every last movement. Lastly, the conversations that are struck and the advice and/or stories I receive from others about their pregnancy experiences b/c they see my bump, and they want to share. It’s like a club out there that I never knew existed. This journey has been incredible already.
IBB: What is the best piece of advice you have received so far?
JK: The best piece of advice, which I have taken to heart, is to just enjoy every minute of it. No one can explain what an impact this has, and I have just taken it all in and loved each and every step. I’m looking forward for what’s to come, even though I may feel at times I have no idea what I’m doing, I’m just ready to jump in and embrace our little man.
IBB: What is your best pregnancy information source?
JK: In addition to hearing from others and their personal experiences, I have really found the “What to Expect” pregnancy app and daily emails from them very helpful. I have a copy of the book as well, but I’ve really enjoyed having a daily update on what’s going on. A little information at a time has been nice, and my husband follows along with it also on his phone. So, we can chat about it because we’re receiving the same info at the same time. I’ve already downloaded the “What to Expect” baby’s first year as well. I highly recommend both.
IBB: What is your most favorite item on your registry?
JK: Well, I really can’t narrow that down. I would just like to move into Itty Bitty and that be the nursery – does that answer the question adequately – ha!
IBB: What has your husband enjoyed most during your pregnancy?
JK:I couldn’t ask for a better partner in all of this. He was made to be a Dad. He has enjoyed the anticipation of his little guy getting here and following his growth process from the doctor, What to Expect, classes we’ve attended, etc. My heart melts when I see how much love his Dad already has for him as well.
Congratulations to this sweet couple on their bouncing baby boy!
