If you’ve noticed that my blogging has been somewhat irregular lately, then you are correct. But I have a very good reason for that and it is because the Mister and I are expecting a baby in October.
These past few months I have been knee-deep in nausea, inundated with fatigue, and of course, joyfully secretive until we were ready to make the announcement. It feels like so much has changed so fast, and it is with a greater sense of urgency that we prioritize and take care of things before our new family member arrives. But mainly, I’ve been sicker than I ever imagined I could be, far sicker even than when I was hospitalized with that awful staph infection last summer. I’ve been sick in ways I never knew a person could be, and my life has been turned upside down. Although I am not what they call a “high-risk pregnancy” and all tests show that I am healthy, it seems I’ve gotten more than my share of sickness and even a few rare and extremely miserable symptoms that only a small portion of the population gets. It has been very, very hard.
So for now I’m leaving my blog, leaving it here and up, but inactive. Perhaps I can return in the future, after the baby is born, after I’m back to my old self.
Meanwhile, you can always e-mail me if you’d like an update or just to say hello. Thank you all for hanging in there and being such loyal friends and readers. You’ve all become very special to me.
