Some of you may have noticed my blog has been a little sparse lately. And I've been a little slow at answering my e-mails and responding to my Facebook wall posts and messages. Well, I have a good excuse for this! I'M PREGNANT!! We are so happy to announce that we are expecting baby #3 in mid September :)
It's been a long journey to this pregnancy. I lost two pregnancies this past year. Both were very early (about 5 weeks along) but I had never had a problem getting pregnant or staying pregnant before so they came as a real shock to me. Then at about 7 weeks with this pregnancy, I started to have some weird pain and I knew something wasn't quite right. An ultrasound revealed that I had a subchorionic hemorrhage. From what I understand, this means that part of the placenta was torn away from the uterus wall, causing bleeding. The warned me that I now had an increased risk of miscarriage. I have been very nervous about this pregnancy and was taking it day by day. But fortunately at my 12 week ultrasound I got the news that everything has healed and there is no more bleeding. The baby looks perfectly healthy and all is well! We couldn't be happier and couldn't wait to share the good news with all of you!
So bear with me while I slowing try to weed through my inboxes and I will do my best to at least have 2 new projects for you each week. I've been extra tired and had a little bit of nausea to deal with. It is very unfortunate that the only time my nausea really kicks in is when I pick up my crochet hooks or look at my computer for a long time :( But I am hoping to get some energy back in the second trimester and will be able to focus on my blog a little more. Thanks for your support!
I can't wait to have a little model for all my crochet hats :) You know this means lots more patterns for next fall and winter!
