Hi there, remember me? As much as it may seem that I have completely given up on blogging or perhaps even fallen off the planet, I’m happy to report that I am alive and well and here and happy to be back. It’s not that I want to disappear. I promise, I don’t.
The thing is, I haven’t been feeling so hot the last few months. And if you are a friend IRL or follow my personal pages on social media, then you likely know why. You guessed it—we’re expecting!
A week before moving into our new home, we discovered some very welcomed, happy news that our first baby is on the way. My sweet (patient) husband and I have been in the midst of this over-the-moon-slash-OMG-are-we-really-having-a-baby-we-can-barely-take-care-of-ourselves kind of moment and it’s been a whirlwind yet wonderfully sweet experience so far.
I won’t bore you with all the details but to say that pregnancy consumed my daily life for the first trimester would be an entirely accurate statement and hence the reason for you probably thinking that I had, in fact, given up on you and this here blog.
Thankfully, I didn’t experience much morning sickness—just endless, 24/7, all day everyday nausea and the most intense sense of exhaustion I’ve ever felt in my life. I’ve never taken so many naps! My moods were a little all over the place and so was my major lack-of appetite. Did I mention I have a really amazing, sweet, helpful, patient, loving husband?
Now several weeks into my second trimester, I’m feeling like a completely different person. The bump is showing (!!!) and I feel better than ever with energy pretty much all day (that is, until I crash around 9 pm) and a sense of pure joy and happiness to be carrying around our little love in my belly. Granted, none of my clothes fit and I have given in to the growing tummy—but I’d say pregnancy is a pretty spectacular thing.
For those of you who are curious, we are not finding out the sex of the baby until baby’s arrival in January. That’s right… the uber-organized planner in me is being patient. I know, I kind of can’t believe it myself either!
As always, thank you for the continued love and support through life’s many exciting moments. That’s the news for now—back soon, for real this time. ☺
