Bun in the Oven!

It's been a while since I have blogged. I feel lazy and ashamed :( I have a good excuse, however!

We found out on August 14th that we are pregnant! We've been trying for a while, so this was awesome news. However, in between the exhaustion, morning sickness, and my last semester of college I haven't had much time to craft. Or the desire to. My husbands schedule is crazy, what with being a slave to the Navy and all, and so the care of the house and animals has largely fallen to me solely when I really feel like I need to be looked after... :}

I'm having to relax my standards about home orderliness a lot right now but I guess it's a good thing - excellent preparation for having a child. Unfortunately we'll be moving to Florida a few months after the baby is born, which means I don't get to decorate a nursery. Not even once we're there, because we will only be there for a few months.

Overall, I am very excited - even if I feel like death right now! They say it gets better after the first trimester ;) This is going to be an amazing journey. The Huz and I have decided to do everything as natural as possible - meaning no ultrasounds unless they become medically necessary, no painkillers during labor, birth with a midwife preferably at home (we haven't completely decided on a home birth yet, as it's fairly expensive...), delayed cord clamping, cloth diapers.... you name it!

I hope these next months fly by because I can't wait to meet our son or daughter! :D


  1. Huge congratulations to you! I'l be praying for that baby to stay sticky. I hope you share about this experience as I think that's the way that I'll want to do it (especially the cloth diapers). Good luck on the move too.

  2. Oh my goodness!!! Congratulstions!!! I had both my girls with no drugs/ all natural - etc. It was sooo worth it because they were so alert and perky from the first moment of birth.

    I have found some great consignment stores around the metro for my grandson - and some incredible boutiques if you have a girl.

    Let me know if you want to know any of these.

    Best of luck!!!!
