Hold The Gin

6th January 2014

And so, Happy New Year!  There’s been a very good reason for my unintentional, over-long ‘hiatus’.

Meet Zerbert:








Zerbert has been baking for 13 and a half weeks now and will be appearing in early July.

We found out really early.  Because I’m weird.  The time between the 5.30 AM pee stick on November 3rd and the 9.30 AM photo session on Friday was the longest wait of my life.

Neil put an embargo on early pregnancy blogging, and I found I couldn’t talk about anything else.  Every second word out of my mouth was ‘baby’.  Or ‘sore’ and ‘boobs’.  And ‘barf, going to’.

I promise, my vocabulary has improved.  I hope.

I’m back.  More pregnancy shenanigans here this week.  Now with less barf.  You’re welcome.

        My best advice? Do what feels right to you, no matter what anyone else tells you. It’s the hardest thing to do!
