Guess what!!???

So you know how I've been laying low and have been "sick" lately...

Well...

We have a bub on the way!

I'm calling it our miracle baby since I'm pushing 40 and definitely no spring chicken, and we've been trying for a year.

It's been a rough month of ALL DAY sickness so far. The "morning sickness" thing is a myth. If only it was just in the morning.

So everything considered I'm just trying to focus on being well and not projectile vomming everywhere.

One time I was craving Indian food and we were en route to a restaurant in Katoomba when we had to turn around cos I couldn't handle the bumpy road. We were just around the corner from home lol

That's pretty much why I've barely been around and not participating in this year's silver Steem round 2019 competition.

Cos all my reserves are depleted and when I have energy to spare I've been trying to catch up on housework.

Hubby has been AMAZING. He's been trying to do and learn everything that I used to do around the house and then some. But I can't let him do everything!

So yeh!! I'll be popping around the end of October this year and I have a feeling we'll have a Halloween baby!

Ok, now who's surprised? Who's not?
If you're on my facey you don't count 😉

OMG congrats!!! Enjoy your time being a couple now and get all the movies and chinese drama out of the way!! hahahaha oh actually i watched more tv when the kids were born cos i would watch while i feed them :P

look after yourself as winter is approaching, keep warm and eat healthy :)

·

Awww thanks honey!!!!

Yeh that's what Ben's been saying, we need to go out now and enjoy our time together cos well have a plus 1 soon!

As for the dramas I reckon I'll have more time with them too once bub pops out for the same reason ;) so that's definitely a positive!

I'm actually hoping bub will help keep me warm over winter. What do you reckon? For a mountain girl, I get cold easily and even now have a hot water bottle next to me 😁

Speaking of dramas, what are you girls watching? I haven't watched a series in ages. Last one was Story of Ming Lan on Viki.

Awww cheers @holoz0r!!
The only downfall to this is we won't be able to make it to Adelaide for the Christmas party. Bub will only be weeks old 😭

You guys are so selfish. :D I think it is another ploy to drag Adelaide into the Blue Mountains.

We'll attempt to have a live link or something. :)

Thank you @thekitchenfairy!!

Aww congrats Arly. I've been sick too, but with actual sickness, like a lung infection. It also lasts all day so I feel ya!

·

Awww thank you Choo!!!
The lung infection sounds terrible. I hope you feel better soon! 😭😭😭 I really feel for you, I hate being sick all day.

Try to take naps during the day if you can. It's what I do to get breaks from the nausea 🤗🤗🤗🤗

Congrats and hope you get to feel better soon. My wife has no interest in having a baby in her 40s and can't blame her because her pregnancies have been hard enough in her 30s. She had all day "morning" sickness as well and here feet always swelled up huge in the 3rd trimester and to this day she still has pains in them.

Congrats and be keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers for a strong healthy full term baby!

·

Aww thanks brother!!

To be honest my cut off was 40. If we didn't get pregnant by the time I was 40 then no baby for us.

Sounds like she's had a heck of a time and really can't blame her. These all day sickness things are brutal. So far no swelling, not really looking forward to it after hearing your wife's story ~ poor thing. The things we ladies go through right? ❤

Thank you for the thoughts and well wishes. Need every good vibe out there! 🤗🤗🤗🤗

Posted using Partiko Android

Wow! Congrats Arly. So happy for you!

All I can say is - Get lots of sleep. It'll help with the pregnancy and you might not get so much sleep when the baby comes so stockpile all you can :)

·

Awww thanks Bugged!!

Sleep is definitely a priority right now and I think I should get Hubby's reserves up too. I think we're both going to stockpile on that definitely!

That's a surprise- Congrats! That is big big news. I'm very happy for both of you.

Thanks so much Doug!! ❤🤗

Congratulations @bearone, that is wonderful news. I don't think the end of the thirties is old, this is the 21st Century where more mature women are deciding on having babies now that their professional careers are under control.

·

Thanks Angie!! ❤

Yeh I have noticed more women are having babies around 40. I think for me I know my energy levels aren't the same anymore and I had been sick on and off last year, so I had a lot to consider moving forward.

There's also the risk factor of having a baby in your 40s and I wanted to avoid that as much as possible.

I will say we're very careful about everything right now especially food and diet and stress.

Yay congratulations :D
