My happy news

When Stu and I returned from holidays last December, we had absolutely no idea this little stowaway was in our midst.
But when we did find out, it was the most wonderful news, and has filled us both to the brim with happiness. I'm 3 months along now and am looking forward to meeting Baby in September.

I'm not going to sugarcoat it and say that everything has been great and wonderful. Truth is, the last couple of months has been a bit of a roller coaster ride for me. Even though I was one of the lucky ones who did not experience morning sickness, I felt uncomfortably bloated and unbelievably exhausted. I spent most of my weekends simply catching up on sleep (and therefore not crafting or baking or blogging!).

While I was extremely happy and excited, I also experienced an irrational and downright terrifying fear of losing the pregnancy in those first fragile weeks. My emotions were wildly out of control; I'd sob my eyes out at the drop of a pin and get annoyed at the smallest things. And then I developed an aversion to meat before completely losing my appetite. Cooking and eating (my favourite pastimes!) was no longer enjoyable. In short - it wasn't fun.

But...and thank goodness there is a but - now that I'm in my second trimester, I've noticed a dramatic improvement in the way I feel. My energy levels are back up and my emotions are much more in check. Stu and I are delighted to finally be able to share our happy news with family and friends (and now you). My baby bump is just starting to show and I'm sporting that famous pregnancy 'glow', all thanks to the increased blood flow to my cheeks AND my hair has never been thicker and healthier. People around me have never been kinder and more supportive, and I can honestly feel so much love around me.
