(Becca (8 mo. pregnant) and Jake Gaines)
Whether your a mom or not, it's always fun and exciting to watch and be a part of the pregnancy process. As first time parents, Becca and Jake have been crazy busy getting everything ready for baby Jovie. Thankfully, Becca was able to carve out a few minutes to tell us about her pregnancy. See what Becca had to say about being pregnant for the first time!
IBB: What is your most favorite part of being pregnant?
BG: Feeling her move! It's incredible. I get a small preview of her sweet personality. And everyone is so friendly! People definitely cross social boundaries that they would never cross otherwise...like touching my stomach or commenting on my body, but all have been kind.
IBB: What's your most hated part of pregnancy?
BG: My aching back!
IBB: What is one thing you wish you could tell your baby before he arrives?
BG: That her daddy says she can't date until she's twenty-one, so don't even bother looking at the boys in the hospital nursery.
IBB: What is your nursery color scheme/theme?
BG: Her walls are a light neutral with a glitter glaze, and she has a round white capiz shell chandelier. Her bedding is mostly white linen, with ruffle details, in a robins egg blue iron crib. We have a natural linen slipcovered rocker glider, where we've thrown a few bright patterned pillows - with aqua, lime, and pink.
Her changing table is a 1940s wooden dresser refinished by her daddy with a high gloss, bright aqua lacquer. And she has a few funky accents like a soft sculpture mobile, and some shabby, colorful fabric birds (made by my sister and some friends for Jovie's shower) framed together in a contemporary shadow box.
IBB: What aspect of motherhood do you most look forward to?
BG: I can't wait to see what a personality created from my husband's and my own is like! Also, I treasure the relationship that I have with my mother, and I'm excited to experience the other side of that.
Thanks so much Becca! We all had a great time getting to know you a little better, and wish you the best of luck. We can't wait to meet Jovie Gaines!
