lots of changes

Wow so I realize it has been forever since I have last blogged but I think I have good reasons for this blogging break! A lot of changes have been happening in our little household.


We moved (again... I know!) to a smaller house just a few blocks down the road. We are with our same landlord though. We just decided the house we were in was too big for us and we wanted something cheaper and cozier. I had a hard time making the other house feel like a home but this new smaller place already feels like a home to me! I am loving it! Cheaper rent & utilities. Also means less to clean up! yay!


However the biggest change for us is about a month ago we found out we were pregnant! We are so excited & I'm so nervous! haha! We had been trying for 2 years and feeling a little discouraged but God's timing is always perfect! And prayers really work! Thank you to those of you that had been praying for us! It means so much to us that people truly care!


We are about 9 weeks along & due in November. We've already had a couple ultrasounds (one at 6 weeks & one at 8 weeks). Even though you can't see much & it definitely doesn't look like a human being, just seeing that something there really makes it feel real! And wow does it grow fast! It grew from 0.34 cm at 6 weeks to 2 cm at 8 weeks! So fun!



The real reason I haven't been blogging much lately is the 1st trimester symptoms. Wow are they no fun! I have been extremely fatigue & feeling queasy almost constantly. Luckily I haven't gotten sick yet but it sure isn't fun when my favorite foods don't sound appealing to me anymore!


So between the feeling tired and queasy most of the day I just don't have much energy to craft much less to blog about it! However I'm hoping that by the time we get to the 2nd trimester I will be feeling a little better and wanting to crochet some more!


Thanks for sticking by during my little blog break. I can't promise how much I will be blogging for the next few weeks but I'm sure I will get back into the hang of things!

Congratulations! I know exactly how you feel...about two and a half months ago I found out I was pregnant. I also took three pregnancy tests, just to make sure :)

Once I found out, that explained why I was so so tired all the time...and that insane tired-ness continued until about week 13. I'm 16 weeks now and still tired but I can make it through the day and hang out with my husband for a little while after work instead of immediately falling asleep on the couch as soon as I get home.

I had no energy or inspiration for blogging, crafting, or reading until the last week or two. I made my first trip in months to Michael's and actually want to make a few things now :)

Anyway, that was a novel. Congrats!

PS. Morning sickness was the worst...there are lots of "cures" that people will tell you but the only one that worked for me was to keep food (especially protein) in me at all times. Eating while you're nauseous is not fun, but it was the only thing that semi-worked for me. That's my two cents :)

WELCOME! said...

Ok, I just randomly stumbled across your blog and started reading around and realized that we are pretty stinkin' similar! My husband and I also were married on August 9th, 2008. My husband is also a youth minister, although currently working through a YM internship. We have one little pet and, although you're ahead of the game with the baby on board, we're hoping to start growing our little family, too! Isn't that wild?! I could try to pretend that we're even more similar because I enjoy knitting, but in all honesty I'm terrible at it and haven't taken the time and energy to become good at it. Someday...promise :-)

Congratulations on your pregnancy!
