An Update!

I cannot believe I've been gone for over a month! How did that happen?! I swear I laid down for a nap one day and just woke up this afternoon :)

I have been struggling with "pregnancy fatigue" for weeks and weeks. I feel like I'm dragging through each and every day. I'm mostly just taking lots of naps and vegetating. I wish I could say I had lots of stitching to show for myself, but the truth is I don't. I've been completely unproductive in every way - including hobbies. But I am the queen of the afternoon snooze and that has to count for something! And the good news is we have a beautiful little apple seed to show for it! This is our first peak at Cuddle Bug's new sibling - whom we lovingly refer to as "baby." We got it on June 30th at our first prenatal appointment. We confirmed the gestational age (9 weeks gestation in the ultrasound) and we are definitely due on February 2nd - my (and my sister's) 26th birthday!


In stitching news, about a month ago I got a wonderful gift from the sweet, sweet BeckySC - the gorgeous Joyful Summer chart from Country Cottage Needleworks! This will be my next big project and I'm thinking it will be a perfect gift for my sister, if she wants it of course, for her new apartment. Thank you times a million to Becky for such a lovely chart - you are so generous!


And finally - look what I got from Sally! She has awarded me the Brilliante Weblog Award! Thank you so much Sally! I'm so flattered!! And now I have to choose 7 other blogs I would like to give the award to - yikes! I will make that a top priority!!

I also want to say thank you to everyone who commented on my blog and who emailed to check in on me. Who would have ever guessed I would have actually been missed?! You are all so sweet and wonderful! You made me feel so special :)

KIM!
So happy to see an update from you, sweetie, but my goodness I understand completely - it is taxing on the bod' to make a baby! Take good care of yourself and hope the fatigue gets alittle less as the weeks go by. That boost in energy is coming - I loved that part. LOL

So good to see you back Kim. I totally hear you about being tired! I remember that so well! The scan photo is fantastic:)

How sweet of Becky to send you the CCN chart:)

Barbara said...

Thanks for the picture of your little apple seed. :D

I think most of us felt like that in the first trimester. Keep napping - you're body is busy doing GREAT things!!

Melissa said...

AAAWWWW!!! Look at your little peanut. I definitely will echo what other's have said. Take naps while you can. It helps out tremendously. Glad you're starting to feel better.

Jacque said...

So glad you're posting. Keep up on the resting, Kim, it will be a long while with a 2 year old and a baby before you sleep well again! : )

DaisyGirl said...

Glad o hear from you! What a sweet little peanut! I remember sleeping away both my pregnacies! haha
I was glad that Jason didn't seem to mind his momma napping, he was such a good toddler. I'd pop in Richard Scary's ABC's and Lowly Worm would teach Jason's songs about the ABC's! I still have the stuffed worm and the apple car he rode in.
Ah, memories!

Kim,
I have awarded you the Kreativ Blogger Award. Check my blog for the rules and how to pass it on. Great job with your blog.

Now reading this post, I see you have received another award. Sorry, I did this to you. Maybe you can do both at the same time.

Those naps you are taking are for the baby. Keep it up. Need a healthy happy baby.

Emily said...

That was a lot of comments you left for me!! Grats on the blog award. :)

Lisa said...

Wow!, you are doing quite well for a beginner. Congrats on your pregnancy. It always humbles me o see ultrasound pictures...how simply perfect! As you have discovered, stitchers are wonderful people, congrats on your award :-)
