Those first 5 months ...

I have been looking for the right words to share with you the most wonderful news in our lives for so long but I was really afraid that the time I shouted it out loud, something terrible would happen. 
But while reading Jenessa Sheffield's wonderful pregnancy announcement I realized how lucky we were to  have our baby and to have concieved at first try. And that I should try and chase away those negative thoughts ASAP.

So here it is:
We are expecting a baby  and my due date is in March.

And now some answers for the most common questions:

How did you find out?
Well, I didn't really have to find it out as I was sure about it the first day. :)
After a few days my hormones started to play crazy and then it was no question anymore. 

How about morning sickness?
Those first five months went by relatively easy for me. I only felt really sick twice. In the first few weeks I felt sick for about 2-3 minutes 30 minutes after taking my pregnancy vitamine but then I opted for another vitamine and the problem disappeared. 
What I had problems with in the first two months was diarrhoea. However, with this I can still consider myself lucky as it always came in the late afternoon, after work. 

How much weight have you gained until now?
I have gained about 4,5 kg - which my doctor says is a bit to much but as the baby is quite big as well, I don't worry about it. 

How about your skin?
My facial skin was terrible in the first 2 months but now it is ok.

Do you use anything to prevent stretch marks?
I use Bi-Oil. 

Can you go to work or do you need to stay at home?
As my pregnancy is not considered as a high risk one, I work normal hours. 

What are your pregnancy cravings?
Haribo gummy bears :)

How long are you planning to stay at home after giving birth?
Again, I can consider myself really lucky that the social system in my country allows women to stay at home until the baby is 2 years old with statal support. Of course, the financial support is not as much as your salary but it is fantastic that  you can opt for staying at home.

If you have further questions, I am happy to answer them.

Thanks for stopping by.
