It's been awhile, let's catch up. After the Marguerite dress collection, Joe and I took a trip to Portugal. I loved it. Upon returning from my trip, I planned to finish and publish the Marguerite sewing pattern. However, instead I came home to find myself unexpectedly expecting. Yep, totally pregnant. I was shocked!
My life has been so very different since I found out. Plans changed. The first few months of pregnancy were pretty rough because I felt useless and awful a lot of the time--the nausea and exhaustion kept me from doing much that didn't involve me laying on the couch. I really had to cut back on my work hours and rethink everything. Luckily, now I feel so much better.
As of today I am 24 weeks along! I've been pregnant for 6 months. (I know you know how to do the math, but before I was pregnant I hated it when people spoke in weeks and trimesters--it felt like a secret language that I didn't speak.) Around 18 weeks I started to feel the baby move around inside me, which is such a weird and amazing feeling. Until then it was really hard to wrap my mind around the fact that there was a tiny creature living inside my belly. It just didn't seem real. And then about a month ago at our 20 week ultrasound, I found out we were having a girl. A GIRL! Cool. I really wanted it to be a girl, but I would have been pretty happy with a boy too.
I still want to get the Marguerite pattern published before I give birth (my due date is January 9), but in the meantime some other projects have come up that I've been working on as well. I hope to share them here soon!
