Life happens…

Hi everyone!

I’m sorry for the lack of posts here lately, but sometimes life just throws you a curveball, and all the best laid plans are thrown out the window. Sounds pretty dramatic, and it might be, but at least it’s the good kind of drama!

Long story short, in September I found out I was almost five months pregnant with my first child. I hadn’t been feeling sick, tiredness was chalked up to working nights, my clothes still fit me and my cycle was already messed up in the first place, so I didn’t think twice when my period was late. After five positive pregnancy tests, my husband and I finally started to realize that I might actually be knocked up after all! A week later, at the doctor’s office, at last this little creature showed herself to us!

So things have been a bit different here lately, to say the least!

We’re busy remodeling two of our bedrooms, one is going to be our “office” and the other one the baby’s room, obviously. I’m still at work, and between preparing physically and mentally for parenthood and getting everything ready before the baby arrives, nail polish has somehow become something very far down on the to-do list. ;)
In addition to that, I have very bad carpal tunnel syndrome in my right hand, and now it seems like the left hand is getting it as well.

I hope you’ll understand that posting will be sporadical from now on, if I get around to posting anything at all that is. Let’s just say I’m taking a break, and any posts I do get up will be a bonus. I won’t blame you if you move on, but I’ll keep reading and following you guys, and I will as always appreciate any and all feedback I get here.

Thanks for reading my big wall’o’text, and bye bye for now! :D
Love, S.

    I was almost in your boat in September as well but I ended up having a miscarriage. I didn’t even know I was pregnant. It was too early. But, we’ll start trying again soon! Best of luck to you! Your baby looks adorable :-)

  10. Congratulations. Take care of yourself and you family. We’ll be here to read when you find the time to post something new.

  12. Grattis så väldigt mycket! Jag förstår att det är omvälvande, 5 månader-det är ju otroligt! Jag hoppas att du kommer må bra under resten av graviditeten så att du får chans att njuta också
    Kan inte hjälpa att jag känner fasination över att vissa inte märker att de är gravida. Att det är som olika individ till individ. Själv är jag gravid i v 15 och har inte kunnat ha mina vanliga kläder på ett bra tag.
    Grattis igen och lycka till! Kramar

    • Tusen takk!
      Ja, det var et lite sjokk, men veldig hyggelig, da! ;)
      Det er så forskjellig fra person til person, så noen vet at de er gravide en uke etter at de har unnfanget, mens andre er….vel, som meg. ;) Er iallfall glad jeg oppdaget det før det var for sent! :lol:

  13. Congratulations!
    Wish you happy and healthy baby, easy delivery and lots of cuddling time with family.
    I’m subscribed to your blog, so I’ll be back every time you post … so nothing will change on that front. :)

  14. Congratulations!! Nail polish does indeed take a back seat to a little one for a while. I wish you joy and much happiness with your little bundle of joy. :)

  15. OMG Congratulations!!

  16. En miljon grattis till dig och din man! Vad roligt! Men jag förstår att det kanske kom som en liten chock. Uppdatera så ofta eller sällan du vill, jag kommer fortsätta att titta in med jämna mellanrum. :-)

  17. Wow! Congratulations!

  18. Congratulations! Hope you and your baby are well. Wish you, the babys daddy and your little baby girl all the luck and love in the world.
    11 weeks ago I became a mommy and posting on the blog happens rarely, but the readers are very nice and patient. And so they will all your readers be when you have less time and energy to post.

  19. Congrats! Stay healthy!

  20. Gratulerer! :)

  21. Congratulations dear!! Wishing you happiness and a healthy baby. All the best to you and your little family. :)

    Grattis igen!

    • Thank you! Really strange to think she’s 6 months old already! :D

      • Niiiice!!! You’re just getting to the REALLY fun stuff! Unless of course, you like the cry-y, wake-up-every-3-seconds, barf all over your shirt stage… ;) I have a nine month old, so I’m right there on the battleground of motherhood with you. :)
