Over 7 years ago I met Ogi and instantly fell head over heels for him. Our love grew so quickly that in 6 months we were getting married in a courthouse in Belgrade, Serbia. I admit that our friends thought we were a bit crazy for moving so fast with our relationship, but we both knew in our hearts that it was right.
We spent the following years taking every possible opportunity to travel the world together. Honeymoon in Bali, learning to ski with him by my side in Italy, watching the Northern Lights in Lapland, Finland, and creating our photography business. I can’t forget to mention that we adopted Kaya, the most beautiful cat and bought a home together.
If that wasn’t enough to make my heart feel so full, now I can happily say that we are blessed to be expecting a baby!
We had in mind to start trying to get pregnant in late 2020, but little did we know just how quicker getting pregnant would be. I remember like it was yesterday, Ogi and I had just started our quarantine days and I told him that I felt ready for a baby. Talk about perfect timing as I was ovulating then (not even realizing so).
I missed my period and woke up one day feeling extremely nauseous. We both looked at each-other and kind of knew what was happening without saying anything. I took a pregnancy test the very next day and in no time the plus sign appeared. The coming days seemed to have flown by. I guess it was because I spent most of them sleeping a lot and feeling the morning sickness (which lasted all of the first trimester). By the way, whoever came up with “morning sickness” must have never been pregnant, because I felt it all day long! Who else can relate?
My mom was the first to know, a few days later we told Ogi’s parents. We chose to wait a few more weeks to tell our family and close friends just because I wasn’t sure how the pregnancy would play out due to my age (I am 35 years old) and the high risk of miscarriage in the first trimester. I didn’t want to stress much about that, but still knew that this was a possibility I had to acknowledge.
After my 12th week NT scan, I decided to share the news with you on Instagram. It was so hard to keep this a secret, hiding my feelings and growing bump. Thank you for all the comments and love on my reveal posts, your support means so much to me.
I hope this explains me being so distant and I hope you will enjoy following this new journey with us.
