You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting as regularly as I did pre-Christmas. Well it was after Christmas that I not only took on a fuller work schedule but also had to endure the dreaded first trimester. Yes friends you read that right, I’m pregnant with our first! This late August/early September there will be a little baby running around in the Squirrelly Minds HQ. Okay maybe not running around, but certainly taking over the place. I’m 17 weeks along and couldn’t be more excited!
It’s still hideable with the right clothes, but I’m definitely developing more of a bump. And while I hate to admit it in fear of being exiled from 90% of mother’s out there, I’ve had quite an easy pregnancy so far. I did have nausea and food aversions (cooked onions!) but I thankfully never unwillingly gave up any meals churning in my tummy. The worst was battling inhumane exhaustion. Despite several naps and 9+ hours of sleep, I constantly felt like I was running on empty. It was hard feeling so exhausted and useless when I’m used to being so productive!
Now that the second trimester is well under way I’m hoping to get things back on track here. Though forgive me if SM is not up to its past vigor. I’ve got lots going on right now! YAY BABY!
I’m so excited to finally share the news with you all! Squirrelly Minds won’t be turning into a mommy/baby blog any time soon, but please forgive me for posting DIY’s and cute nursery inspiration here and there.
I’m so excited to share this journey with you!
