the virgo within

On the photo blog I worked on last year I was pretty explicit and then not too long ago I gave you all a cryptic hint (only Catherine caught on!) but now it is time to introduce you all to the virgo within…

the virgo within

Look at that pose – one arm resting behind the head, the other hand draped on the forehead. Very dramatic! This little person sure is going to fit in around here.

We’re all so excited to see ‘little one’ inside yesterday. At eight weeks I was bleeding and whilst a scan showed all to be okay it continued for sometime so we’re all relieved to see that baby is still with us. I had small amounts of bleeding at about six weeks with my first pregnancy but now I can sure understand why some women don’t realise they’re pregnant for sometime thinking that they’re still menstruating! The human body is so freaky and weird… in a cool yet mind boggling way.

I’ve been feeling SO exhausted. I’ve been nauseous and there have been headaches… but nothing in the league of the ailments I experienced from the very beginning with pregnancy number two. I feel so good in comparison that there are times when I have to remind myself that I am pregnant – and that is not to say how easy this pregnancy is rather how horrific the last one was.

This is such an exciting time. My heart is soaring with happiness and delight, and now that this first trimester is over I am starting to feel a little more human. With any luck my creative mojo will be returning to me soon. I’ve been so exhausted that even couch craft like crochet has knackered me out after a few stitches!!!

Two trimesters to go… ahhh!… so much to do and yet so long to wait to hold this babe in my arms. Apologies in advance if this blog turns all baby baby… but hey – sometimes it is all I can think about.

  27. Congratulations Sally, lovely news and that is a fantastic photo, what a pose...all I got to see of my second one was a big butt and the boy bits, not one you save for the family album!! Hope all goes well, rest up (I know with 2 other children thats a bit of an oxymoron! ) Enjoy....it is fabulous and exciting bringing a new member into the family :-)

  28. Huge congratulations!! Serves me right for not keeping up with your photo blog more, although I remember seeing the artichoke flower so how did I miss the one right after it. Dear me!

    All is now making sense over the absenses and the lack of crafty mojo but it is great to hear you are feeling much more yourself now! Looking forward to hearing about all the pregnancy/baby stuff over the coming months :)

  29. Wow - CONGRATULATIONS! I popped over to check out how your creative space was going and look at what you have been creating - a human! And a virgo one to boot - the very best star sign in my humble virgo opinion. Hope your energy returns with a vengeance soon.
