Exciting news!

Photobucket
Yeah, that's a baby. And guess where it's hanging out? Yep, in my tummy.

I have been sitting on this secret for almost four months now and I have been dying to share our exciting news with all of you. As of today I am 20 weeks along (halfway already!) and we just found out on Tuesday that it is a baby boy that we will be expecting July 11th. We are so thrilled and can't wait to meet this little guy.

So now you know why my boobs have been looking so huge lately. I know you've been wondering.

♥elycia

PS. If you are at all interested in how the pregnancy is going so far feel free to ask any questions. I think I will do small little updates on the baby every weekend for those of you who think growing a baby is as cool as I do!

Double PS. The winner of the ever+mi crush giveaway is...BlessieNelson! I will be in touch shortly.

  7. Also, I know I may be jumping the gun here but does this mean mother and baby "what I wore " posts. Because I'll need fair warning to prepare myself for such cuteness...

  16. congratulations! growing a baby IS cool - my cousin had her first baby three weeks ago and I was asking her tons of questions during her pregnancy! So amazing :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. OH MY GOD
    These are thrilling news! Congratulations!! :D
    Have you thought about how you would raise the boy in matters of food? You're a vegan, right? Would be interesting to know yours and Ivans thoughts about it. Is he thrilled? Do you have a name already? Do you think he will poke his nose and eat bogeys? Can that still be counted as veganism? Questions, questions.
    You're really one of my favourite bloggers so far, and thus, I'm really happy for you. (I hope you are too :)) You seem so down to earth and funny, all the other blogger pregnancies seem so ... far off.
    I'm really eager to hear more!
    Greets from vienna!

  63. Congrats, Elycia! Blogland is having a huge baby boom. So many of my favorite bloggers will be having their babies at the same time. I can't believe you're halfway along and not showing in the slightest (except for the boob thing!). What an exciting time!

  70. congratulations! Baby boys are the best, I cant wait to see some of your maternity outfits!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Aww, congratulations, mama!! As an active member of the mommy club myself, let me just say how incredibly exciting this is- seriously, there is no greater joy. I know that sounds cliche, but believe me- it's cliche for a reason! All that love you have in your heart right now.... can you believe it will actually double.... no triple.... still not enough.... 100 million -duple (making up terms now!) when you meet that little boy?! I've always been a bit of a sarcastic realist. I never wanted to get married. Never wanted kids. I told my daddy (whom I get much of my personality from!) when I was about 17 that I had no plans to ever have children. The pleasant conversation we were having abruptly stopped. What five sesonds ago was a cheerful, joking face, turned into a look of concerned sadness. He said, "Don't let me ever hear you say that again. You GOTTA have kids, Jenny. I was never happier than the first time I held you and your brother." I sort of shrugged it off then, but I have never forgotten that day.

    You know what? Daddy was right :)

    I'm not saying it's for everyone. But for those of us who choose that path (for the right reasons, that is).... it's joy like we have never before known. Good luck, Elycia! If you have any questions, or just wanna talk gross pregnancy stuff, I'm here!

    ♥ Jenny

    ReplyDelete
  102. Oh my gosh! Congratulations! I believe you will the best mama a boy can have! So little... and a boy! Boys are more mama that papa :)

    I think it would be a great idea to do something I saw on a cartoon. It was about adoption and someone adopted a little girl from Vietname and it seems , at least in the cartoon, that there is a tradition, and if it is true or not I don't know but I find it adorable: when someone is expecting a baby their friends, family, neighbours, anyone give to the mother a little square of fabric with the pattern that it's somehow related to the person that gives, and the mother makes a quilt blanket made from the all squares she received :)

    Kisses and congrats again,
