Where have I been for the last ohhh 4 months? According to my last post, I dropped off the face of the earth the day after my birthday. Well I’ve been around..just not quite here. You see…when I was pregnant with my son, I hardly moved off the couch the first three months except to make it to class..even that was a struggle. I never had ‘morning sickness’, it was more like ‘all day nausea’. EVERYTHING made me feel so sick, I couldn’t handle the smell of food cooking, coffee brewing, or the site of food for one second. I basically lived off of applesauce and crackers..I know, so healthy for someone growing a little baby inside them…
WELLL..a few days after my birthday….4 months ago…we found out WE’RE EXPECTING AGAIN!! We are beyond thrilled! I’m 23 weeks along today, my belly has finally popped and is looking less and less like a beer gut and more and more like a little bundle of joy! We are having a baby boy! We didn’t find out the gender last time, and I didn’t want to this time, however I had a little complication in the beginning so Ive been going for weekly and bi-weekly ultrasounds, and it just kind of popped up on the monitor one time! 🙂 We cannot wait to have two little boys running around! I can’t believe how fast my little mans first year went! I’m so happy to be giving him a permanent friend! Now, trying to name this little guy…impossible. I have such a hard time with boys names..we can’t come up with anything that we both LOVE! Good thing we still have a ways to go…I’m due December 22…hopefully there’s no Christmas baby!
So why did I tell you a little history about my first pregnancy? Becausee….that’s why Ive been MIA. I finally stepped into the kitchen and cooked something last week for the first time in months..I haven’t been able to handle smells AT ALL…I couldn’t look at pictures of food, which means I missed out on tons of my favorite blogs delicious summer recipes! My fiance left for the whole month of July for training, we had no contact with him, and my poor little man suffered through bowls of cereal, sandwiches, snacks, and mac & cheese…good thing I don’t have a picky eater! Thankfully I have my energy and appetite back finally! The Nesting has begun in full force and my wonderful fiance could not have been more of a help..he is amazing every single day, and I am so lucky to have him, and I am so incredibly grateful for everything he does for us!
Enough of my babbling! In the next week or so, I’m hoping to finally start blogging normally again! Come back soon for some delicious Cranberry Oatmeal Bars! I don’t know about you, but I am fully ready for FALL!! 🙂
Here’s a little peak in pictures of what Ive been up to the last few months..mostly just enjoying my handsome boy! Happy Friday!
We had a few family pictures done before my fiance left and I added on anymore weight! 😛
…and we went to the beach. A LOT!
We baked a few times…and my little man ate most of the dough..or batter! 😛
Then my fiance came home and ordered was restored..dinners were made, normal food was eaten, the house was clean, and now I’m seriously nesting…I love being pregnant! Hope to see you all back here soon!
