This weeks Q/A:

When are you doing the reveal? Can you give us a hint? Haha, wouldn’t a hint be giving it away with a 50/50? I don’t have any plans to reveal right now. Not hiding it for any other reason than just to have something for ourselves for a bit. We share a lot and I promise it will be shared, but just not right now.

Do you have a name picked out? We do.

What kind of prenatal vitamins do you take? NatureMade Prenatal + DHA

Is V becoming aware of being a big sister especially now that you are showing? I don’t think she has any idea. We say baby and point to my stomach and she will hug it but I don’t believe she actually knows what’s happening. She also loves to point to herself when I say baby. She’s the baby for now! 🙂

How have you handled being a working mom? Being a stay at home mom vs a working mom both have their challenges but I can honestly say that a stay at home mom is more difficult. Going back to the office this week has been beyond hard, yet, it gives me natural energy and I feel so accomplished at the end of the day (to be all 3 things… mom, working mom, and blogger).

Have you felt the baby move? I thought I felt flutters the other week but I am starting to think that wasn’t actually a thing as it stopped. So excited to

What were your first trimester symptoms? Read all about the first trimester, here.

How do you manage your energy? Cup of coffee in the morning (max) and MAYBE  soda in the afternoon… for some reason this pregnancy I have craved them more than I ever have before. I normally do not drink soda at all.

Feel free to continue to send questions for next week.
