That Explains It

I'm assuming the post yesterday will answer a few questions as to my lack of presence here. A good friend called and asked if I was ok because I hadn't been posting so I decided I better clear it up here.

Yes, we are expecting another little one. Due date is set for April 1. Seriously, I'm not foolin' (get it, due date on April Fool's, yes I'm a nerd).

That means I'm close to 10 weeks along. It's a bit early than I wanted to share the news but the husband has been telling pretty much everyone - including strangers - so I caved and decided to share the news here too.


I haven't been feeling the greatest and I've been extremely tired. Like, I wake up and feel like I need a nap and have been falling asleep on the couch just after we put P down to bed (8pm). I don't really have a routine when it comes to writing this thing. Sometimes I write in the morning (when I was doing Insanity and up before the rest of the house - clearly I'm no longer doing that crazy workout) sometimes I write when P's down for her naps. She still takes two naps a day and I've been trying to nap when she does but I just can't fall asleep during the day. And, other times I write at night, but seeing how I'm falling asleep at 8 or 9 I just had the energy or desire to do it.


As you guys know, I really like food, however, I have been feeling nauseous all the time and just cooking food makes me want to puke. Too much for ya in the morning? Sorry, but seriously, the other night I was cooking ground turkey and almost had to stop and leave the house all together. The stench permeated the house and I didn't think the stink would ever go away. Needless to say, I didn't eat that meal and I certainly didn't have the stomach to stand near it to take a picture!

However, if I don't have to cook it, food isn't so bad. Bring on the donuts and ice cream.

All that to say there probably won't be many food posts for a bit. And since food is something I talk about a lot here, that probably means I won't be posting as often.

So, there you have it, I'm pregnant and preparing for a new little one. Ohhh, I am so excited about holding a teeny-tiny, sweet-baby-smelling little one.

Anyway, happy Wednesday and thank you for all the sweet comments yesterday!


    I have an April Fool's baby! She is 12 years old.
    And you are also the 4th person that I know that is due around April 1st. So glad I was not drinking that water. :-)

  2. oh goodness, it's all so true!

    i'm in the final stretch with my 2nd (due Nov 6th) and my daughter Lily is just a few weeks younger that Paisley. So much more challenging the 2nd time I find, but it goes by faster, if that helps :)

    thankful to have found your blog! I have been reading Ashley Anne's for about a year now and finally found yours - not knowing you were sisters! Fun posts, thanks for writing :)

  3. CONGRATS girl!!! SO exciting!!! LOVE the sign, a how the hubs keeps telling everyone. Thats how my hubs was too... ok, let's not tell everyone just yet... "I'M GONNA BE A DAD!" Haha! Good times!! Hope you get your appetite back sooner than later!! Hugs to you!

  4. praying for you! the second pregnancy has flown by and hopefully it will for you too! take it easy, my friend!

  5. I feel you on the morning sickness. BUT hopefully it'll clear up in a couple weeks and then you can start talking about food again! :)

  6. Congratulations! Having two kiddos is a lot of fun!
    I've really enjoyed your blog. Looking forward to your posts whenever you can :-)

  7. Congrats! I am due 3/29 so I will be following along and sympathizing with you! I am so sick and tired as well and trying to keep up with my 6 year old and nearly 4 year old. Sandwiches...that's what we've been eating because the sight/smell of raw meat sends me running too!

  8. I wondered when you stopped posting on a regular basis and then when you posted and said that you have been dealing with bouts of not feeling well I thought...PREGNANT! I love the picture of you and Sweet P on the couch! That was my favorite thing to do when I was pregnant with my 2nd daughter.

  9. Can i just tell you, in an oh-so-secret-b/c-the-cat's-not-completely-outta-the-bag-way, that I FEEL YOUR PAIN (and joy!)! 8wks here. Barf.


I know it can be a little scary but go on, I'd love to hear from you!
