My friend Kirstin is pregnant with her first child. However, you’d never know it because her belly is the cutest, smallest thing I’ve ever seen. On top of it, she’s absolutely gorgeous and always looks Instagram ready every time I see her. She’s basically one of those maternity models that you think you’re going to look like when you’re pregnant, but instead of glowing, you just sweat. Like all the time. Anyway, I got to ask her a few questions about being pregnant for the first time and what her expectations for motherhood are.
Due Date: August 27
Baby’s Gender (If you’re finding out): Boy!
How did you feel when you found out you were pregnant?
K: I was scared, nervous and excited all at once and probably said “wtf” a handful of times before I even told my fiancé.
What has been the most surprising thing about pregnancy?
K: All of the opinions or judgments about what you should or shouldn’t do. Everyone always has the answer.
What has been the best part about pregnancy?
K: Finding out the sex and seeing everyone’s excitement.
Do you have any cravings?
K: Anything with salt. All day, everyday.
Have you peed yourself yet?
K: Almost, during a fit of laughter. I dropped to the floor and held myself until I stopped laughing!
What do you miss most that you’ve had to give up because you’re pregnant?
K: Alcohol, hello? #HelpMe
What scares you the most about labor and delivery? (everyone poops, I swear)
K: Any sort of complications.
What are you most looking forward to in motherhood?
K: I’m excited to see how life changes and looking forward to the greatest and most challenging role I’ve ever had. Also, can’t wait to see that little baby boy’s face everyday for the rest of my life.
I have no doubt Kir is going to be a great mom. She’s so fun and active, that she’ll have no problem keeping up with her little man. I can’t wait to to see her start this new exciting chapter in life. Plus, it’s another friend I can add to my Mom Squad. We meet every other week for wine and reality tv. We swear we’re not going to talk about our kids, but we always end up doing it anyway.
