Well, i Have Some News!
I've been desperately holding on to a secret and now am ready to share it with you. Let me tell you, it's been agony keeping this to myself and am so happy that i can share it with the world!.....
...i'm pregnant! Very exciting news for me and yet i don't want this blog to necessarily turn into 'a crafty vegan and her baby' but i suspect it will sometimes. I am just starting 18 weeks and am loving this stage of the pregnancy. The morning/all day sickness is over now, my tummy is gloriously showing ( that's me at 17 weeks), and we are in baby-reading and rearing mode now.While the first few months were hard, i think i am now ready to start the next step - making things for baby! Like cloth diapers, receiving blankets, booties...the list goes on. With a lovely book like this one from Amy Butler, i am even more excited about this. After making half a dozen diaper bags for friends, i can make one for me now! Yippee! Of course, that will have to come between putting my feet up and napping.
The best part is the eating. I am hungry a lot, but am eating well. My midwife told me that my B12 intake is better than most meat-eaters and that was exciting for me. My naturopath told me that i need to double my protein intake, and calcium of course, and that has been a fun experiment for me. I'm eating more than my 6 foot partner, but barely feel it! Maybe this blog will also showcase some of the ins and outs of my pregnancy diet too!
Anyway, just wanted to share the news with you!
