We're Pregnant w/ our First Baby! (Plus upcoming Giveaways)

We got a little surprise news a few weeks back. We are expecting our first child!  I haven't mentioned it until now just to make sure everything was well and okay first.  I had my second  appointment the other day where we were about to hear the heart beat, so I figured its okay to tell now. 

We were not trying to have a baby, but we are beyond excited!  My bf and I have been together for over 6 years now and have in the past year looked at engagement rings, just saving a little money first.  I'm not very traditional when it comes to us getting engaged.  We know its what we want, and I don't need it made into a big deal. 

I have been a Nanny/Sitter for the last 10 years, but can't wait to have one of my own.  I know that the experience  I have might come in handy but in no way do I feel like this will be a piece of cake.  See being a Nanny/Sitter is a job, which I love, but I get to go home at the end of the day and rest, unlike parents.

I have to say I have been really lucky so far.  I have had very little sickness, more like a slight discomfort from time to time, which reminds me of motion sickness.  It is not fun but its not as bad as it can be.  I have heard plenty of stories about poor mommies being super sick in the beginning and through out the whole pregnancy. I'm only 10 weeks, so I have a while to go, but I'm still thankful for being able to survive so far.

I have to say the one cool/weird thing about being pregnant is the whole heighten sense of smell.  I feel like one of those drug sniffing dogs!  It can also be annoying, like with the smell of pork, ahhh pork smell I don't like you!

So I started lining up some mommy/baby/kiddo friendly and frugal products to review and/or giveaway.
