a little baby


Mark and I are having a baby! :)

I do love spreading those happy words about. It's been sooo long that I've wanted the words to come freely to everyone and anyone who will listen... plus I am possibly the most terrible person at keeping my own secrets.

We are almost 12 weeks.

Battling nausea, up to 5 toilet trips per night, creeping out of work at 3:05pm just after the school bell has rung as I can't keep my eyes open, falling on the couch in an exhausted heap and feeling guilty as Mark cooks away (OK that part has been lovely hehe I am so grateful for his help), and the tiredness = not enjoyable. Lately I have had every limb crossed hoping things would begin to improve and I feel little inklings that they are beginning to. Two whole nights without ANY nausea. Hurrah! Just the thought of those feelings disappearing for a while makes me want to celebrate. 

I have been lucky by having super healthy yummy cravings - mostly all I desire are huge fresh salads riddled with crispy iceberg lettuce and tomatoes, dark rye toast with cheese slices, veggie delight footlong Subways, fresh fruit of any variety... oh and the odd H.J veggie burger just for good measure.

I'm amazed at how much there is to think about, as this is my first baby. Initially I found everything quite overwhelming, especially after reading 'those baby magazines' *insert raised lip here* I was left with a heavy head- cloth Vs disposable, bassinet Vs cot, $50 brand label onsies ummmmm, sleepsacks, swaddles and cot sets... OH MY!  A few weeks after this magazine and online onslaught I feel completely optimistic about the decisions Mark and I have made to reuse and recycle as much as we can as we begin to prepare the nursery in the next few months.

Until then I will just continue to swoon over all of my favourite nursery room design ideas over here on my Pinterest board. Pretty pastels, prints, fabrics, mobiles, quilts... happy days of planning ahead!

  6. Congratulations!! such fantastic news. It is amazing how tired you can get isn't it?! and that awful seedy feeling, there's never been a time that I just wanted to sit on the couch and not move than that first trimester, hopefully you are just coming out of that phase.

  7. Trace,
    Are you following 'The Organised Housewife' on Pinterest?? It is like organisation porn. Awesome stuff and nice playroom and nursery images in there along with tonnes of other things that made me drool.
