Everything is fine! Baby is growing!!
Now that that’s out of the way, lemme give you some details as to why I have been M.I.A.
Basically, morning sickness is kicking my BUTT and I have NOTHING left over anymore! Seriously. That’s where I’ve been.
Baby is doing great! We went for our first ultrasound on the 13th, and saw the heartbeat! It was 130bpm and fluttering away. SO amazing to see! We were six weeks and six days (now we’re 7 weeks and 4 days).
If you’ve noticed that these ultrasound pics look different, it’s because we did go back two days after the first one because I had some scary bleeding. All is fine, and baby is great, but hence the two different images!
At exactly six weeks, my morning sickness settled in. It lasts ALL day long – no break from it. Bleh! I have a prescription for Diclectin (which doesn’t do ANYTHING!), and now Phenergan. Phenergan is great, but it will knock you out, so it’s best to only take it at night.
Long story short, I’m thrilled to be growing this baby, though barely keeping up with life because of the sickness.
As a result, I actually won’t be blogging much in the future. Definitely updating on baby news, but that’s about it!
Honestly, I’m thrilled about this. You may have even noticed I deleted my Instagram, too.
I’ve never been one to gravitate toward social media. My attempts with Instagram were an effort to grow my blog, to hopefully earn something on the side. That’s it! The people I followed were 99% strangers, and other bloggers. I refused to use it for actual social reasons!
Also, as much as I enjoy putting outfits together to express the tiny amount of creativity I possess, I have SO many other interests. I am definitely not one to limit myself to any one area, and have bunches of things that I enjoy doing, thinking about, and so on. I was starting to feel one dimensional with only having outfit posts, and am so enjoying the break I’ve already started. Does that make sense?
Finally, and I don’t know why I’m basically diary writing at the moment, a big part of starting this blog was another (of many) attempts to get through the infertility battle. A way to distract, and engage, despite the overwhelming and constant sadness. I am so thankful it served that purpose.
I am so thankful to be pregnant, and moving forward on this very much longed for journey with my husband. I have only ever aspired to be a mother, and am still genuinely shocked that I have been blessed to experience this miracle until now.
While I’m not totally peacing out, I felt it was only right to share why I haven’t been consistent, as before.
Thank you, as always, for reading! I’ll be around!
