I Promise I Can Explain...

Some of you may have noticed that there has been a slight lull in my posting... as in I haven't posted once in the past four months. I'm going to assume that no one was too traumatized by my sudden and unexplained lack of communication, but I still feel that an explanation is due. I'm going to let these cute pictures of Eve do the talking for me:




Hopefully the message is clear here. I'm pregnant! As much as I wanted to be posting, the first trimester was really rough for me. I was sick all day long, every day. It was an achievement if I could stand, let alone get all dressed up. It was quite a shock to feel so ill because my pregnancy with Eve was a relative breeze! I felt sick a handful of days and even my worst days with Eve couldn't compare to this time around. Fortunately, after 14 weeks, things started to turn around.

I am now 19 weeks along. So, yes, there has been a month or so where sickness was not an excuse for my silence. Honestly, I just didn't want to post pictures of myself. I know that a lot of women with morning sickness lose weight during the first trimester but that wasn't the case for me. I always felt worst when I started to get hungry, so I ate constantly to lessen my nausea. Of course, along with morning sickness came a plethora of food aversions. Sadly, most of what I could stomach was fairly calorie dense so I ended up gaining more weight than I had hoped. Nothing crazy, but I'm not going to be one of those women who doesn't seem to look any different than when they aren't pregnant, apart from a protruding belly. I've seen so many other bloggers look absolutely amazing while pregnant that it makes me feel embarrassed over how different I look.

But enough with the pity party. I love this blog so I've decided to just move past these issues. I'm going to start posting outfits again and now you'll all be prepared for a slightly chubbier me.

On a brighter note, we find out the gender on Thursday! As long as this baby is cooperative, that is. John and I both have a feeling that it's a boy (which we would love), but we'll be quite happy to have another girl. We have everything we need for a little girl! I'm just so excited that the day is almost here. I have no idea how people wait until the baby is born! That's some crazy will power!

  2. Congrats! I felt the same way during my first trimester! I barely blogged during my whole pregnancy! (I also haven't blogged since I had my son!) Hope you are feeling well soon!

  3. I always thought I'd be part of the "basketball belly" club, too. Nope. I gain all over and carry that baby way out in front of me. Everybody carries differently - there is no right way to look pregnant. Plus, I think it's easy to think that others look cute pregnant, but that you don't. I think you look adorable. So blog on with your bad self, sista, because you grew a pancreas today. ;) Your body is amazing!
