Gina here...the owner of danceFIT. I am taking over the blog today to share some news!
This week I am 13 weeks pregnant. I have been trying to hide it for the past 3 months, BUT this is certainly a hard task when it is your third child & you usually wear leotards for work. Thank you to my friends at Lululemon Natick for helping me pick out some flowy tops to hide the bump. Here are my favorites that you see me in often, Wild Tank & 105 Singlet.
There is a little bump that can clearly be seen through the loose tops & I am excited to officially share that there is a baby in my belly. My husband Chris and I and my proud boys Joey (5) & Tommy (4) are very excited they are finally allowed to share this secret, they knew for a while and have remained quiet about it! Amazing!
My dream is to look like this:
but I am sure I will look like this....again.....
So, as you can see, the baby bump watch will be be quite fun. My belly gets HUGE! You have to come to class to see the progress :) Check out this weeks schedule.
The first trimester has been very different from my other pregnancies. It was full of the unknown, excitement, and even worry. I would stress myself out thinking something was wrong, just simply because I didn’t “feel pregnant.” With the exception of a few waves of nausea and intense exhaustion, I feel like myself. During my previous pregnancies I was SO sick during the first trimester. I am so grateful this time.
For those of you who knew me 5 years ago, I workout intensely through my pregnancies, you called me the "crazy ballerina"....not sure if that is a good thing haha....Toward the end, I still kept up with my schedule of about 25 classes a week. It actually felt great to saute, stretch & plie! This time around, I did give up teaching hot barre right away for fear that wasn't good for the baby. A huge thank you to Miss Ashley for taking over so quickly!
"Do you want a girl or a boy?" Well, of course there is a 50/50 chance and I am excited for either. This article was shared by a friend & it expresses why I love having boys & why I am excited about the possibility of having 3 boys! BUT as you probably guess, I am also very very excited with the possibility of buying tutus & big bows :)
Stay tuned....the gender reveal is this weekend. We are having a small family party and will be cutting a special cake made by fellow mompreneur and local Wayland mom, Amy Sweet Solutions and inside will reveal a pink or blue answer!!!
I intend to keep you, my clients in the loop about my pregnancy....what do you want to know??
