Nursery Tour

Welcome to Penelope’s nursery!! If you didn’t already know, I gave birth to our baby girl Penelope on February 10 – you can check out my quick post here and check out my Instagram for updates.

We had such a fun time planning and designing her nursery while we waited for her to arrive. Our main goal was to keep it gender neutral with pops of colour here and there – we didn’t want a hot pink nursery just because she’s a girl, it’s just not our thing! After a lot of planning & hard work (on Pete’s part), we have the nursery of our dreams!!

Right now, the chair, change pad/diapers, bassinet and my pumping stuff is in our living room. It’s more practical than me having to walk up and down a full flight of stairs 100 times a day! We’ll transition things back upstairs soon once we have a bit of a routine!

We are… EXPECTING!!!

I cannot believe I’m putting this into words – Peter and I are expecting our first little bundle of joy!!! Baby is due early February 2019, and we are so excited we can’t even believe our luck.

I am officially in my second trimester (14 weeks), and so far, I love pregnancy. The first trimester really kicked my butt, something I wasn’t totally expecting – I was so tired, so hungry and had no motivation to do anything. I just wanted to snuggle on the couch and watch Netflix all day!! As tired as I was, I knew a lot was going on in there – I’m growing a human being!! I am so impressed with my body and how it’s changing and adapting to grow our babe.

I currently have a bump which I am obsessed with (it’s not very big but I love it), and babe is currently the size of a peach and getting bigger all the time. Peter and I love checking all my apps to see how our babe is growing each day – it’s hard to believe that 9 weeks ago I found out I was pregnant, and the babe was the size of an appleseed!

When I took the test, we had been trying for 10 months – which felt like a really long time, but in reality it wasn’t that long (my parents tried for 7 years before they had my sister). I just had this funny feeling – I was super tired and hungry, like more than normal so I decided to take a test. And it came back POSITIVE! So I took 2 more over the next day, and both were positive – so we booked an appointment with our doctor, and it all went from there!

Peter and I are so excited, and I can’t wait to share more about my pregnancy, our plans for the future and how our lives are changing. Stay tuned, and keep an eye on my Instagram where I’ll be sharing a LOT of updates!!

Love – Rachel, Peter and babe xxx
