We are from Philadelphia. We actually just moved to Pittsburgh in January from Brazil.

We were both pretty scared because everything happened very fast.
We did everything together, so there was no real reveal that I was pregnant.
I eat healthy (most of the time) and exercise regularly.
We have chosen names for the baby but we are not revealing them until the baby is born since we don't know if it's a girl or boy.
Yes! We created an "around the world" themed nursery.
My husband will be taking a few weeks off from work, so he's going to be the main help. We will also have some family visiting.
Yes and it was quite an adjustment for me because I'm very much a person that likes to handle things herself.
I think I had an idea and it's pretty much what I was expecting.
This was a super hard thing for me! I ended up getting most of my things at Target.
I had different stages of food cravings, the most notable of which was tomatoes!
We thought it would be something that would be great to have in the future to remember this phase of our lives.
We wanted something simple and easy because we were already at 37 weeks!
