Sew Surprised (and excited)!

So the blog has obviously been quiet for many weeks now.  So has my sewing machine. 
Any guesses why?  In mid-March I was super-surprised to find out we are expecting another baby!  

Fifth baby announcement (with apologies for photo quality).
I won't go in to all the ways and reasons that his is so surprising right now; you'll just have to trust me.  I will say this: I was sooooo sick.  This is pregnancy number nine (yes, nine) for me, and by far the worst.  For about four weeks I could barely function - in bed 75% of the day, on the couch the rest of the time.  I couldn't understand it.  Thankfully, it went to normal first trimester sickness after a bit, and now that I am in the second trimester, I am feeling pretty good.  I don't know if it is or was related or not, but by 8 weeks I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes.  Maybe the bad sugar levels were contributing to the super-sickness for a bit?  This is my first time with an official diagnosis, and I'm thankful that my new ob office tests women with my history so early and that it was caught.

Anyway, I am eager to jump back in to sewing projects.  Now you know why it's been so quiet around here.  My last two projects (Hawthorn Zip-Up Jacket and EYMM Piko Tops) were actually completed earlier than posted and I had to wait on the pattern release to blog about those projects. April and early May were mostly sickness and doctor appointments!  I made my first trip to JoAnns today and picked out fabric for a bed skirt I am making for our new bedroom.  I can't wait to share pictures!

((and just for kicks, we thought this outtake was hilarious.  Hopefully she like her new sibling better than she likes taking pictures about her new sibling!))

  1. Yeah! Congratulations! I'm sorry you were so ill, but it sounds like the worst of that is over. Your announcement photo is adorable.


What do you think? I would love to hear!
