Well, it’s been a busy old year so far!
Here’s the lowdown:
After getting married in June 2018 we went on a lovely mini-moon to Palma for a few days before getting back into the swing of shop life and wife life! We were also very lucky to go on our main honeymoon in January to Sri Lanka. It was wonderful. You can find out about my honeymoon makes on the Crafty Sew&So Vlog
In September I found out I was pregnant! Yay! And it’s been baby central since then!
Had a pretty good first six months of my pregnancy. I was lucky enough to not get mourning sickness just a bit of nausea and dizziness and my 2nd trimester was pretty fantastic really.
My 3rd trimester however was plagued by heartburn and insomnia – not much fun but like I said, I was pretty lucky for the first six months! It could’ve been much worse! Moan over!
So as I write this I am 41 weeks pregnant and have mixed feelings about when the baby should come – not that I have any control over it!
I’ve really enjoyed my maternity leave so far – three weeks of unplanned freedom!
I’ve used the time to do a bit of nesting, making lots of meals for the freezer.
I’ve been making a few baby accessories including hats and a crochet blanket.
I’ve made a few nursing-friendly garments including a hack of the My Handmade Wardrobe Cosy Jersey Dress
And I’ve been working on a pattern for a wrap nursing top
Plus lots of going out whilst I still can for meals with the husband and coffee and cake dates with family and friends!
Oh and a fair bit of Netflix and cake binging at home too!!
I know the next few months are going to be a roller coaster- I’ve been reading up on what to expect but I don’t think you can ever be fully prepared! So I’ve just been trying to relax and enjoy it as much as possible.
I’m hopefully going to be posting a bit more regularly on this, my personal blog, to keep in touch with the outside world! So till then…
