Things might be a bit slow around here for a while…

I found out a couple of weeks ago that I’m pregnant with our second child.  Unfortunately, morning sickness is once again kicking my butt.  I was hoping it would be better than it was with my first baby, but I think it’s worse– either that, or I’ve mercifully forgotten what it was like the first time around!

Anyway, it’s been so bad that I’ve basically been in bed as much as possible, so I don’t have much energy either for sewing or blogging.  My sewing machine is ready to be picked up from the shop, and I’m anxious to try it out to see if it’s been fixed, but I don’t know when I’ll be able to do that.

At least I’m fairly well caught up on my bee blocks.  I have a few to finish by the end of the quarter (March sometime), but hopefully it will let up a little.  All but one quarterly bee are swaps, meaning that however many blocks I make is how many I get back.  Those are easy to bow out if necessary.  Also, March is my hostess month for two of my bees.  For stash bee, I do need to create a tutorial and post it, but I was going to cheat and copy the block pattern from a previous hostess, so if I absolutely have to, I can ask her if I can repost her tutorial.  Hopefully I’ll be able to do my own, though.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know why it will be slower for a while.  Hopefully in a few weeks I’ll be back to sewing with a vengeance.  Luckily, my last pregnancy went very smoothly once the morning sickness left around 16 weeks.  So, if I follow the last pattern, I have about two more months to be miserable, and then I’ll feel great until D-day.

If it’s a girl, I’ll have a lot of baby-related sewing to do.  If it’s a boy, not so much.  I’ll be reusing most things, but I will most likely make him his own quilt.

  1. Saltine crackers!!!! By the boxful!!! I had morning sickness till the middle of my 8th month. I kept the crackers in my bed, and as soon as I woke, I would start eating them WITHOUT moving anything but my arm and my jaw. If I even rolled over to reach them, it was too late. I ate crackers all day long. If I went more than 15 minutes without eating crackers, I would throw up. Good luck with it all, I would only wish this upon my worst enemy.

  2. So sorry you’re not feeling well. Maybe you have forgotten what it was like the first time – the first time sounded pretty awful. Maybe it won’t last as many weeks this time – doesn’t hurt to hope. Can’t wait to see you back posting regularly in a few weeks.
