So...I've been a little busy ;)

Sorry I haven't posted in so long! I think this excuse will work though ;)

Around the last time I posted I found out I was pregnant! I have been out of commission. Today was the first time I touched my sewing machine since June. Poor thing. I have been extremely sick. But, I'm learning that the more active I am the better I feel. If that makes any sense. We're pretty excited. I'm due on Valentine's Day! As you can see my little bean in the making.

I surprised my guy with this card. Which I'm planning to make more and list them in my shop with the pregnancy test included. The reaction was priceless. I have been on a card making kick. So, when he saw this one. He did one of those oooh...I haven't seen a card like this before (very sarcastic). Then he opened it to see the pregnancy test. "Huh?? Are you really???" Neat reaction.

Anyway...that's where I have been. But, I'm going to try to keep posting!

Congrats fellow etsian!!!!The nausea will pass. I know!!!I know!!!!But its awful. I had it with my first son; and you are right the busier you are the better; Also if I may...Here are some other advice.
Always keep snacks around" it is better to have little snacks instead of one big meal."
If you start feeling nauseous pop
a cracker.
Gingerale helped a little.
Every morning start with a full glass of water with lots of ice.
Again, congrats !
