This is a beginning to everything... beginning to a new life creation, beginning of a new blessing, beginning of a new journey ahead for both my husband and I.
I've decided to start this blog for a few reasons:
1) I'm not much a "scrapbook" person. Many mothers keep a scrapbook of their child growing up - after all, it is an amazing journey to watch your own child grow up and the special occasions and milestones. I hate scrapbooking. So I think keeping a blog of all the challenges, the beautiful moments, achievements, milestones, pictures.. would be the best way for me to keep a "diary" of this journey. I might or might not make this blog private as time goes by, we shall see. Depending on what I end up writing on here, whether or not I share "too much" hehe.
2) Blogging is a way of expressing myself - and I already do on my other blogs www.kimbaskitchen.com and www.kimbasphotography.com - my two current passions in food and photography. I think I will soon find that the passion for both will start to take less of a priority as I go through this motherhood journey, so it only makes sense to start www.kimbaspride.com :)
So this is the beginning... today is the 11th of July 2011. I am currently 17 weeks pregnant. Our baby is due on the 21st December 2011. We've already had our first scan at 7 weeks and the heartbeat was strong. Our next scan will be on the 27th July at almost 20 weeks, and yes we plan to find out its gender during this scan!
A bit of baby bump there but it really doesn't always show yet, depending on how bloated I am for the day!
First baby toy purchased - a cute little rocking donkey from a garage sale only $5!
So we pray that this journey will continue smoothly. We pray that God blesses us with a healthy baby and we are thankful each day for this gift :)
