What a great way to start the fall season…  Catching a cold. I was trying so hard to avoid getting sick this year but I guess the more you try to avoid it, the sooner it comes. I already have trouble enough as it is sleeping and this happens. Of course, being pregnant, medication is slim pickin’s as everything is “not recommended for pregnant women”  *sigh* just have to deal with it I guess.

It just sucks that I have to start work at 5:30 in the morning tomorrow. I really should have asked someone to switch with me before I left work early today. At least I’m off earlier tomorrow but I still have to go get blood work done and do errands or else I will never get things done. Getting sick is just never good timing anytime in life.

Despite my health woes, I am excited for Saturday. My husband’s cousin is hosting her daughter’s first birthday and she personally asked me to be the photographer since she loved the pictures I took for my niece’s first birthday. I’ve been itching to hold my camera again so I’m excited. I lucked out too. My battery died completely (stupid me leaving the batter in the camera for a few months) and of course it’s pretty expensive to replace it. Luckily, I found a site that sold them for super cheap and the warehouse is in my city so I didn’t get charged for shipping!! $90 Nikon battery for $15… Life saver! I just hope I am feeling better by then.

One of the things I really want to do when I feel better is to finally organize my office. It’s a freaking mess. It looks like an explosion happened in there. If I can manage to reorganize my closet last week, I  can do this. I would like to do a before and after photo but I am that embarrassed about the mess. It’s really that bad. It’s like an episode from the show “Hoarders”. So bad. I’ve been wanting to clean and organize things lately. I guess it’s the nesting instinct thing. I’m just limited since I can’t use all cleaning products because of fumes. I admit though, I sometimes sneak a clean here and there even though my husband gets mad at me about it. I can’t help it!! I want to clean! So tackling this “office” will be a big enough project for me I think. Hopefully in a couple of weeks. My husband will be on night shifts so I can have my peace to do what I want lol.

 




Next Step … DIAPERS!!

To add on further to my blog entry on August 15th, yes … a lot has happened since I turned 30. Looking at the title of this entry, I’m sure you all can guess what one of the major news is …

Little One Coming Soon!

Little One Coming Soon!

!!!!!!!!TADA!!!!!!!

Yes!! I am going to be a MOMMY!! I was dying to reveal it sooner but I was waiting until I was at least done my first trimester before I revealed it to the world. I am just starting my second trimester now which means I am 3 months pregnant and due MARCH 8th, 2016. My husband and I are ecstatic!!

It hasn’t been an easy pregnancy though. I am not one of the blessed mothers-to-be where they don’t have too many symptoms or none at all. Over the past three months it’s been nothing but throwing up, fatigue, mood swings and food aversions. All of my usual favourite foods, I can’t really stand – I hate the smell of cooking eggs and mushrooms. I hate the smell of fresh garlic. I cannot even handle eating fish. I would be throwing up at least twice a day everyday because I’m so nauseous all the freaking time. Everything was worse at night, meaning my morning sickness was a night sickness which made it difficult for me to sleep. I was (still kinda am) uncomfortable all the time. I felt like I needed space. I couldn’t stand cuddling with my husband or my dog at night. I would get grumpy and end up “trying” to sleep in our guest room or on the couch downstairs. There was even a point where I told my husband to change his deodorant because I could not stand the smell even though I was the one who picked out in the first place. LOL.

Oh how I love my husband. He has been putting up with me so much. He truly is a trooper. He’s been cooking and cleaning, making sure everything he cooks is properly cooked, he tells me to go upstairs if he’s cooking eggs so I don’t smell them. He makes sure I go to bed at a decent time … He texts me every morning to ask how I’m feeling. He’s been at every appointment so far too. Such a great husband. I can tell he’s going to be a great daddy. Sometimes he’s more excited than I am (it’s those days where I am throwing a fit, crying that I can’t stand being pregnant anymore because I feel like shit HAHA).

Now that I’m entering my second trimester, things haven’t been as bad. Instead of throwing up everyday, it’s more like once a week. I can eat more now as my appetite has returned but I still don’t like eggs. But … as much as it’s great having to lose a bunch of symptoms, it only means that I gain more to replace them. Now I’m going through insomnia and I am more prone to headaches and migraines and heartburn. Not fun but I’m dealing with it.

But I am freaking excited. I cannot wait until we get to know the sex of the baby. I don’t think we would be able to know for another month or so. Everyone is already guessing that it’s a boy. My husband already keeps calling it a “HE” so we will see. We already have names too! I just want to know the sex so I can start looking into how to decorate the nursery and look into cute baby clothes and shoes!! My bestfriend already told me that the baby’s shoe collection will be because of her. She’s itching to buy shoes already hahaha.

Happy One Year Wedding  Anniversary!
