I hadn’t realized just how long it had been since my last post! Goodness me, I remember the pressure I used to put upon myself to get a post out almost everyday! Hope you are all well and thanks for still reading despite the long gap.
I am still going through hyperemesis, I had confused myself and thought that I was over the 16 week mark which was when it stopped with Thunderpants, and thought that i was going to have this for the whole pregnancy but after yesterday’s scan of the little one, I am in fact only 14+5 which means I have a whole week and 1 day to get over this! I actually want to go back to work and have a routine back! I always feel a bit naughty when i am off sick, as though I am doing something wrong but I really wouldn’t be able to sit and do my job with the constant sick feeling. However, I am optimistic and it has improved slightly so I am grateful for the small things. Unfortunately though, it has greatly affected my moods but since last week and the release of a burden, this has changed a lot of things and I am feeling really good and very positive although watching and monitoring how I feel as obviously PND isn’t far from my thoughts. I guess you cant really let it define you and there is so much more to me and I know that I have done some really good work and met some wonderful people though that , on twitter,Facebook and face to face.
So apart from that, I have started thinking about times ahead, new seasons and next year plus concentrating on quality friendships that I have in my life. We are now coming in to Autumn/Fall which I love, love, love! I adore the crisp air, the smell of fires burning, leaves changing color and falling from the trees. I also enjoy Halloween and the anticipation of the run up to Christmas. I have already starting pinning to a Pinterest board, some ideas for our annual Christmas BBQ and also lots of cooking ideas We started having Christmas bonfire/BBQ’s a few years back and I think last year was the best one yet. We showed the film “Elf” on a projector outside and had a bonfire in the back garden, I cooked up a storm and we had lots of friends round to share it with. This year I have plans of lanterns, Christmas cake, and even better decorations than last year! I hope to start part of the blog in dedication to something “Pinterest” like, I know a few of you do that already and I might try and “hop” on from time to time once I figure out what exactly it is that I want to call it ect.
So that’s me for now, still alive but still unfortunately surviving on whatever takes my fancy food wise from day to day… I hope that in a few weeks I will be able to say that I am “Hyperemesis ” free! But will just have to take things one day at a time. Luckily I have a great support network of women on Twitter who know and understand how it feels to just lie in bed day after day. Its not nice but it will get better:)
