A for Apology, B for ….?

Err… B for Baby? Or B for Blogging! Either way, the two don’t go hand-in-hand it seems. At least in my life!

Okay, so let me spell it out. First things first – a huge apology and a very big thanks to all you sweet people who kept checking on me the last few months. I am truly very sorry I had to go away without any notice. But I had a very good excuse you see…

Yes friends, I am P-R-E-G-N-A-N-T! Yoohoo! 17 weeks pregnant!

And the baby, who seems to have a mind of its own already, did not care to see me bloggingΒ  at all. Nausea, tiredness, food aversions, sleepiness, sleeplessness, headaches – each day seemed to bring a symptom of its own with it! And I struggled just to get through the day, especially at work. But all that’s in the past (hopefully). Or for a couple of months at least I think!

I am feeling much better now. All the symptoms have gone, and except for an occasional headache and of course the always-there heaviness, I am fine. And am logging in to catch up with everyone the first chance I get. Just hope there are a few folks still reading this!

Actually, I feel so good, the husband and I sneaked in a small babymoon trip this past weekend. We traveled to the Finger Lakes area of upstate New York to see the fall colors. Our first trip after the big news. Needless to say, it was fabulous! I’ll leave you with some pictures. And a promise to try and be more regular from here on. Ta!
