Sorry to have been AWOL for so long. The good news is the reason for my absense is that I’m pregnant!!!! The bad news is I’ve been sick as the proverbial dog so haven’t had the energy or inclination to do anything other than survive.
My last post was around the 4 week mark, which is roughly when the morning, noon & night sickness kicked in. I was miserable, even when I wasn’t getting sick, I felt sick. I got sent to the hospital twice, kept in overnight on a drip to rehydrate me once, and diagnosed with Hyperemesis Gravidarum (I’m fancy like Kate Middleton), himself said I was a hypochondriac & narrowly avoided a swift kick in the goolies for his smartness.
Thankfully I’ve been feeling much better lately. I still get the odd rough day where I can keep nothing down, but for the most part, once I eat as soon as I get up, I’m good for the day. I’ll be 22 weeks tomorrow and boy do I look it. I’ve a sizeable bump at this stage, people look at me funny when I tell them I’ve still got 4 months to go. The small man is very excited to become a big brother, though he has decided it has to be a girl, he will not even entertain the thought of it being a boy, as far as he’s concerned, if it’s a boy it has to go back.
Anywoo I have a few bits that I’ve been meaning to review for you. I can’t guarantee I’ll be blogging very frequently for the next while, but I’ll pop them up as & when I can. Thanks for reading, toodles x
