It’s Time to Spill the Beans
We have a confession to make… we’ve been hiding something from you. It’s a secret that we needed to keep all to ourselves, at least for a little while. However, we’ve really been struggling to hide our excitement over the past few months. This whole time we’ve been preparing for our most exciting journey yet – PARENTHOOD!

That’s right, we’re adding another little nomad to the family. Baby Brady will be arriving in August 2019! Our little bundle of joy is 19 weeks along now and we’re both healthy and growing bigger every week! We still don’t know if we’re having a boy or girl yet, but we find out very soon. You will know as soon as we do; No more secrets, I promise! All we know is that we can’t wait to meet our future son or daughter.
It’s been a whirlwind of emotions and changes. Honestly, becoming a parent is the most exciting and terrifying thing we’ve ever experienced. We’ve been so busy traveling to events, trade shows, working on our renovation and growing a baby all at the same time. We’ve just been waiting for the perfect time to tell everyone the good news.
Our anatomy ultrasound is coming up at the beginning of April and we thought it would be really fun to share the big reveal together! So now is the time to place your bets – Boy or Girl? (UPDATE: Many of ya’ll have asked about a registry, here’s the link: https://drivinvibin.com/baby-registry-our-po-box/)
All the Feels
I’m in my second trimester now and feeling more myself, just insatiably hungry and always ready for a nap. Let me tell you about that first trimester though… it is no joke. I do not miss the constant nausea, extreme fatigue and vomiting. We happened to be at the Xscapers bash in Lake Havasu right in the middle of my first trimester. It was so hard to keep up with all the fun when you’re feeling like you might lose your lunch. Is it possible to have FOMO of an event you’re already at? The answer is yes! My frequent naps and early nights meant I couldn’t be at every fun event, presentation and party. I’m actually surprised all the naps and my constant refusal of wine didn’t raise more eyebrows.
What the Future Holds
You may have noticed we aren’t in as big of a rush to get out of Alabama recently. We still have goals and deadlines for ourselves to finish our renovation and to get moved in, but we’re no longer moving a hyper speed to get there. Partly, because I’m not the work horse I was pre-baby, but also because we’re going to be tied to Alabama while me and the baby receive medical care here. Our insurance doesn’t cover out of state care, so I don’t want to venture too far in the beginning. We will travel the southeast region between appointments and checkups until we’re both established and ready to venture out west again.
We definitely plan to continue traveling and living in our RV, it may be a slower pace or we may need to stay in one spot for longer periods of time and we may eventually look for a home base somewhere. We really don’t know what to expect yet, but we feel confident we’ll do whats right for our family.
