Hi friends. Long time no see. It's been quiet on the blog for the past month, I know, but I have a perfectly valid excuse...
I'm pregnant! Keeping pregnancy a secret for the first trimester is the worst. Not only is it hard to wait to share such exciting news, but its even harder to act like nothing is up I was feeling exhausted and nauseous and like I could puke without warning on anybody/anything at any time if something didn't smell quite right by me. And my list of offensive smells was not short. Admittedly, I told a lot more friends, family, and co-workers about our news well before the 12 week mark this time. I figured that if anything were to go wrong, I wouldn't want to face it alone anyway.
I'm in my second trimester now and feeling so much better. My energy levels have come back up and the nausea has subsided. One thing that hasn't gone away is my extreme aversion to sugar. I literally can't eat anything sweetened at all. It's like my sugar-addicted body decided to cleanse itself of the sweet stuff to force me to eat healthier for this baby. This is a good thing, Betty, a good, healthy thing for you and baby. But I do hope it goes away soon (*twitch*)
In other news, we have had quite the busy month of September. We were in Alaska for two weeks (more on this later), followed by a work trip to Salt Lake City for me, and then Brandon's came to town for a week-long visit. These are also reasons the blog has taken a back burner for a bit. Our October calendar looks quieter so far, so I'm looking forward to some relaxing weekends and lots of planning for baby ahead. Happy fall ya'll!
