Wow, sorry about that. It’s been like, FOREVER since I posted anything! How sad! But I swear I have a good reason! At first it was because I was so busy with the operas (they went great, by the way!), but then I became preoccupied with other things…things like saltine crackers, ginger ale and 24 hour sickness. No, I don’t have a cold- I’ve been very busy baking up something VERY special:

WE’RE HAVING A BABY!!!!

Yep, that’s right! Joel and I are having a baby and I just couldn’t WAIT to share the news with you! This is our first (well, if you don’t count Izzy) and I’m so excited that we get to share the experience with all of you! My readers are so special to me and I’m just thrilled to be able to keep you updated through every step! Right now I’m at about 7 weeks along and my due date is January 25 (I missed Mozart’s birthday by 2 days! Shucks!). We had our first doctor’s appointment Wednesday and we got to see the baby’s heartbeat! Very awesome! Please be patient with me throughout these next couple of weeks- I’m as sick as a dog and food is definitely NOT my friend right now. I’m going to do my very best to post often, but when the sight of pasta salad sends me running to the bathroom, it makes it just a teensy bit difficult (jeez, I can barely type pasta salad without wanting to puke).

Bear with me, friends! And pray for me- this is going to be SO new and SO different! And most of all- thanks for sticking with me! :)

  7. Congratulations! How exciting! Don’t worry, I know exactly what you mean about being so sick, I was very sick with both of mine and I still remember just trying to think about food :( I’m sure all your readers will be very patiently waiting for you to feel better. I hope relief comes soon!

  22. Congrats!! I was sick all day everyday for about 7 straight months when pregnant. It was horrible. I actually LOST weight at first and didn’t gain til my last two months. If it gets that bad for you, there are always Zofran or Promethazine you can ask the doctor for a prescription for. I also could not stand pasta of any kind – esp. noodles. I tried to eat foods that were easily digested or already in liquid form. I ate a lot of puddings, etc. lol

  23. Yahoo!!!!! Amazing news! Congrats to you and your hub. I couldn’t be more excited for you both! Hopefully the morning sickness (what a silly term that is…) passes quickly! I hear ginger lollipops are helpful.

    I hope you have a wonderful 9 months and even more fantastic lifetime with your beautiful and sweet baby!

  26. Aww congratulations!! I hear that morning sickness is a sign of a healthy baby so keep that in mind (even if it’s not really true, we can pretened, right). I am at about 37 weeks in my pregnancy and I can understand where you are coming from when you don’t feel like cooking although my excuse is exhaustion, not sickness. I wish you both the best of luck and you blog when you can, girl. :)
