Okay so after only posting 16 total times in the last three months, as well as dropping off precipitously from reading and commenting on other blogs, I am finally ready to provide an explanation for my whereabouts.
H and I are having a baby!!!
Baby H is due January 6, 2015. We will not know the sex until then so you’ll have to stay tuned for that :)
I am 18 weeks and 1 day today, so well into the second trimester by this point. I’ve been feeling great the past couple of weeks, although it was quite a bit rougher before that. While I luckily didn’t have violent morning sickness, I was pretty much constantly queasy for about ten or eleven weeks there, and TIRED beyond all belief:
I miss you, Marty <3
[Note: this picture was actually taken the night before we realized anything was up with me!]
Needless to say, it was sometimes necessary to stay away from reading some of my favorite blogs, because even the most beautiful recipes had the tendency to inspire bad feelings in my tummy (sorry!).
Thank the LORD for no coffee aversion!
As for eating, well…let’s just say I haven’t exactly been a paragon of vegan eating recently. I’ve tried hard to walk the straight and narrow but there were times when it was almost impossible to think of anything that sounded good to eat. My meals have ranged from very healthy:
Biggest salad of all time, constructed from the greens in my fridge + goodies from the WF salad bar
In general I’ve just been trying to get lots of rest and a moderate amount of exercise in between my regular work schedule and planning for baby.
Work has begun on the nursery! Step one: painting, is complete.
Anyway, I hope you can all forgive my absence (from here and from your blogs) as well as my delay in announcing this news–this is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to us and I wanted to make sure I could do it some justice!
Before I sign off, let me just say that by no means is my blog going to be all about pregnancy for the next few months. However, hopefully now some of the weirder crap I’m eating can be put into context :)
Hump Bump Day!
