We are expecting!!! I’m so happy to announce that I will be working on a Me-Made Maternity for the next few months.
I’m now just over 12 weeks prego and we’ve started telling everyone (our families already knew for a few weeks now…). I also recently got a part-time job in an office environment an now that I’m gaining inches (but not weight – weird) I am in need of some new bottoms. Luckily I used to be about 20 lbs heavier, and even luckier still I kept some clothing from that time. So I should be good for a little while, hopefully another month or so… by then I won’t be able to keep it a secret at work!
I will also be posting lots of how-to’s and DIY projects for baby things – I am a frugal lady, but I like nice things – especially if I don’t have to pay top dollar for them!
All in all, we are so excited for the upcoming addition to our family (due January 2012) but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that this is not our first pregnancy… Initially I wasn’t going to post anything, but I figured that since 1 in 5 women will have a miscarriage at some point, it’s nice to show support for others who might be going through the same thing. Bottom line: it sucks. It is shitty and awful and totally unfair. But it is important to remember that it is not your fault and that things do happen for a reason.
So go ahead: grieve and cry your eyes out because it’s only natural. I have never cried so hard in my entire life and did so for several weeks. It still makes me sad to think about it, even though I now have another little one growing inside. I am utterly terrified that this pregnancy will not carry to full-term, but I am trying to stay positive and know in my heart that everything will be all right this time.
I heard this song by Xavier Rudd just as I was starting to come around after weeks of being in a really dark place. I hope it brings you some comfort, or at least that you enjoy the beautiful music of Mr Rudd.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
