Gretchen has embraced her pregnancy

Rossi has looked happy and healthy since announcing her pregnancy in December. But she still battled with some of the typical early pregnancy symptoms.

She posted a photo of herself in late December. “Since being pregnant a lot of my Friday and Saturday nights have been me cuddled up with a warm blanket in front of my fireplace (because I have been so sick & exhausted it’s hard to do anything else),” she wrote. “I am 12 weeks along on Tuesday, and according to my @whattoexpect app I guess my body is finishing making the placenta in the next few weeks.”

Rossi added, “So no wonder I am worn out (this placenta thing is unbelievable- swipe left ONLY if you can handle the crazy picture of this alien like thing a women grows inside her as the main energy source for the babyit’s graphic but it makes me realize women are truly superhero’s, not only growing another human life inside of us but also this whole separate energy source.” 

And cravings

Rossi posted a picture with some luxurious chocolates. “Pregnancy Vibes/ Cravings,” she wrote. “I am finally through my first trimester (14 weeks now) and I barely felt like eating anything especially sweets during that time, but yesterday when I got home from working all day I said to ‘I need some @seescandies chocolate…you know just a few of my favorite pieces.’”

Smiley was happy to make sure Rossi had exactly what she craved. “Well he sure delivered when he came back home with a pound of all my favorite pieces! He goes ‘Look I know your going to want more then just a few pieces during this pregnancy so I might as well and get you a whole box, so I’m not running out to @seescandies every two days.’❤️ Well that sure was smart on his part! He knows me well, he loves me. “
