A little bit of big news

It's been over three months since my last post. That's gotta be a new record. But this time I have a pretty good excuse:



Say hello to the tiny person growing in my belly!

Whew! It's been a fairly trying few months that's for sure, though I think I've had it a lot easier than most people. A bit of morning sickness but no vomiting, lots of feeling extremely tired in the afternoons and falling asleep at about 8:30pm. No exciting food cravings (not sure if Laughing Cow Cheese counts; I've always had the capacity to eat a whole wheel of that) but lots of food aversions and a lot of difficulty cooking or thinking about food. The worst has been the indigestion and having to avoid some of my favourite foods - tomato, citrus, chocolate (!!) and even onions. Add a gluten free diet on top of that and it does make eating times a little tricky! Thank god for avocados (especially delivered ones from Barham Avocados - they're the best!).

That all said, we're 15 weeks along now and starting to feel more human again. It's been exciting to finally share the news. And I've also finally had some energy to plan our rather impending wedding (got a shotgun, anyone?). Only 6 weeks away now and getting excited, looking forward to sharing more about that and all the lovely creative people involved in putting it all together!

Talk about knocking a whole bunch of life milestones on the head all at once. Feel like a walking cliche  ;)

Stay tuned for a bit of a blog-post-backlog, i.e. all the things I would have blogged about over the last 3 months if I'd had the energy!

Congrats! Sounds like you're having a very similar first trimester to me. I felt so much better by week 16. We also ended up with a 'shotgun' wedding, at 14 weeks. When I hit 22-24 weeks I wished we had pushed it back a little because it's a much time in my experience. Hopefully you'll feel the same for the big day!
