BIG News! Long Story...

Hello Friends! We hope all is well and Spring was super productive! We have not been so productive! Funny thing about life, you plan, and then BOOM, life gets in the way. I was very excited to have the Lake House Project be complete so I can get back to my world, my home, and my blog. Remember that thing I just said about life getting in the way of plans?....Well, here's the story.

The last bit of the Lake House I started feeling not so well and was pumping myself with caffeine pills just to get through the days. I thought I had the flu, then walking pneumonia, and was just trying to brush it off. Some days I simply felt like I couldn't stand. If you know me, you know this is not like me at all. I have never taken a nap as a adult and a 70 hour work week is the norm. So the final week of this Lake House Project I had to take a bit of a backseat (for five months I was basically alone on the project with help coming in from LA on occasion).This was a bummer, because this was the fun part. Five months of managing sub-contractors and materials on a full reno - not to have any fun at the end. Fail. 

So I had some previous obligations which were paid for, like going to Texas for my brother-in-law's graduation and I figured I would take it easy. Well, I was beginning to REALLY REALLY REALLY not feel myself when I would sleep, but not feel rested. It was like I wasn't living myself, just observing. 

We had a miscarriage the previous month and I knew my cycle was a bit off and thought maybe this lasting "ill" feeling had to do with that. So we decided to make a Doctor's appointment while we were in TX, and I figured I may as well take a pregnancy test while we were there just so we can say we did and get an appointment.

Welp, that pregnancy test was positive! Many mysteries solved. Much anxiety about all the caffeine I had taken to get through the days. I was in "working condition" for about another two weeks. I could drive, cook, do laundry, and basic stuff done. Then, that kinda ended. I am nauseous 95% of the day and vomit when I do something as simple as sit up. Watching TV, or going on a computer is a complete chore. I can't stomach anything. I thought I would brave a business trip to London. Sit. Fly. Sit. Conference. Sleep. No big deal. Not so much. I puked the entire plane ride and spent more time with my hotel toilet then I did doing ANYTHING in London. I took photos from the cab, and didn't eat a single full meal. I came home and immediately canceled my trip to FL where Joey and I planned on telling my dad in person. Bummer.

So DIY projects - not happening by me. Blog posts - I am on day four of typing this little guy to get you in the know. However I think I will be able to swing some information posts! We have SO many things we NEED to do and we are SO excited to share all of it - I just need a few more weeks (that's what we are hoping!) and I can crawl out of bed, and from beyond the bathroom floor and get my hands dirty. I am sure some of you are reading this and thinking how on earth can she complain! I seriously wish I was one of those people who were "I love pregnancy! This is great", but I don't and it's not. I hope it gets better soon, but eating white bread and being face down in bed drooling on a pillow isn't my idea of a good time when invitations to Summer fun get passed and I haven't eaten grown-up food in over a month. This is going to be my only rant-rave-and-complain post. This blog isn't about pregnancy, constipation, and hugging your toilet. Promise.

In the mean time I will leave you with a photo of our last DIY project! New ultrasound photo next week! Here is the little bean the side of a sesame seed! He/she's already as big as a kumquat now!

Congratulations! I'm pregnant too and when I was as far along as you, I didn't love pregnancy one bit! I was sick for just about 30 weeks and although I don't feel normal yet, at least I can function again! I can't wait to see how many awesome things you'll DIY for the little one (and, of course, the ultimate DIY project of the baby itself)

When I was pregnant with my daughter I puked almost non-stop for 3 months and lost 25 lbs. The face down on the bed drooling description is spot on! To this day I still can't smell parmesan cheese without wanting to hurl and that was a lot of years ago, lol. The beginning of month 5 was the turning point and I got the whole earth mother thing that everyone else was gushing about. I hope for the same for you. It's miserable, but totally worth it in the end. Hang in there!!

YAYAYAYAYAY guys! I had a miscarriage in October and immediately got pregnant again in January, so I know that exact feeling you had. You guys are awesome and you will eventually feel better and it'll be awesome.
