Big news!!

So i have big news that will explain my absence from this blog for the last few months! Im 14 weeks pregnant! And here's the proofIt has been a tough few months. I have been so sick, totally exhausted and have had terrible headaches. Everyone keeps saying it will pass but it hasnt so far. Anyway, babyT is due 5th January and we are excited. This is our first.

With pregnancy came a complete lack of desire for stitching at all Aaahhh. Im hoping it doesnt last! Ive managed to get the few exchange pieces done that ive signed up for and that has been a real chore.

We had a lovely relaxing holiday in Portugal. It was great to be away and totally relax in the sun for a week. I will post some photos in another post.

Whilst we were away my ABC exchange arrived from Alison (not sure what Alison's blog is). Her gifts are gorgeous! I love red. The alphabet pinkeep is so tiny!! Alison's stitching and finishing is beautiful. She stitching a scissor pocket with a fob, a pinkeep and a needlebook. They have my initials on the back too!She also sent me all these lovely goodies too! What a treat! Thank-you very much Alison. I love everything!So that's my latest news! I hope to get caught up with you all in the next few weeks. Ive missed blogs! Being on a computer outside of work has just been unbearable the last few months though!

Congratulations, Cheryl! That is a wonderful way to start the new year. I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well. Love the exchange gift, too.

jlk said...

Congrats! I hope the stitching bug comes back. At the end of both my pregnancies, I couldn't stitch because my hands would go numb. That was annoying because I really wanted to do it!

Selina said...

congrats! Very happy for you.

DaisyGirl said...

Congrats to you and your sweetie on the new baby! I was so tired my entire pregnacy, sleep 15 hours a day! No kidding! Hope things even out for for soon! Do you know what it is? Boy or Girl?

mercy said...

Congrats on the baby!!! I'm so happy to hear about it...can't wait for the baby to come and then for baby pictures :-)

Kendra said...

Congrats on the baby news! Hopefully the sickness will go on its way soon...I completely empathize with you, as I had terrible all-day morning sickness with both my girls, but it was much worse with my 2nd. It went away around the 4 month mark or so. Then I stitched like a madwoman until baby arrived...LOL

Nicola said...

Congratulations on your fantastic news Cheryl.

Irishenchantment said...

congrats on the good news :)

Dawn said...

Congratulations!!! What wonderful news:)

Anita said...

Congrats on the wonderful news. I hope you will feel better soon. When I found out I was pregnant, I was already 4 month there. I was lucky that I only gained a little weight and I was never sick. Take good care of yourself, it will definitely be easier with the months to come.

Hazel said...

Well I knew Big news could only mean one thing!!! Congrats to you both. Although it seems like such a long way away, it goes so fast and your little bundle will be here before you know it. Praying you a pain free pregnancy. xx

Terry said...

Congrats on the baby! Hopefully the sickness, headaches and exhaustion will soon be over. I got rid of all that a little after the 12th week with all of mine. Relax and enjoy the time until the baby comes.

tkdchick said...

YAY!!! CONGRATULATIONS! I'm sooo glad you're not feeling well for a good reason!

Tanya said...

Oh Cheryl,
I'm so happy for you!!! Hope your icky feeling goes away soon - my first 4 months with both boys was terrible but it gets better...or at least it's worth it :o)

Tanya

Suzanne said...

My congratulations to you, I am very pleased to hear!

I can sympathise with you completely about losing all the desire to stitch, or do anything else for that matter. In a few weeks you will feel much better and have more energy than you know what to do with. I caught up heaps of stitching during this time and thankfully it's not over yet.

Juls said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! Such great news!!!! Hugs and kisses to you and DH!!! Great exchange as well!!!

Daffycat said...

Congratulations! That is super news! I'm sure your stitching mojo will be back when things have settled.

Christine said...

Your tiny baby's films remind me the time when I was pregnant!

Elisa said...

Congratulations in your pregnancy...the lack of stitching does pass, I had it myself during my sickess and tiredness part in the first 14 weeks...I am now 20 weeks and back with smoking needles...take care of yourself and take it as easy as you can :)

tintocktap said...

Congratulations Cheryl - wonderful news! I know just what you mean about the morning sickness - it just put me off so many things last year. Hopefully it will pass, and hoping you keep well.

My Life In Stitches said...

Congrats! Wishing you the best.
I also lost my desire to stitch when I was expecting but got it back about half way thru so hopefully you will too.

Stitchingranny said...

Congratulations and I do hope the sickness passes soon. I have heard of going off tea or coffee but not stitching LOL.

What a really beautiful exchange gift.

Hannah said...

Congratulations!!! I have been wondering where you have been. I hope you are feeling better soon. *hugs*

Barbeeque4 said...

Congrats Cheryl!!!!

Barbara said...

Wahoo for you, Cheryl!! :D :D :D

Don't expect to feel like doing anything for the first trimester. The second trimester, you'll swear you're on speed - you'll want to go-go-go all the time. LOL. It's a roller coaster, but a great one.

Wishing you and Baby T a happy, healthy pregnancy!!

sugardoll said...

Oh my gosh! What a lovely surprise! Congratulations to you and hubby!!!

The morning sickness passes. Mine took atleast a little over my 2nd trimester, and the toilet had become my 2nd home for the most part LOL. Hope you and baby are doing great!

Lori said...

Oh my gosh, 51 comments? You're ridiculously famous.

Congrats, I'm so happy for you!

Diana said...

Congratulations Cheryl! I hope you're feeling better soon.

I'm sure you'll feel up to stitching again once you've got your energy back...

Congrats!!! What a fun and exciting time for you!!! The first few months are always rough, I hope you are feeling better soon!

That is fabulous exchange you received, enjoy!

Congratulations. I guessed as much because you have been poorly for so long. The love in your life is about to become the love of your life.

How absolutely fabulous that you are expecting :-)) Congratulations to you both and I do really hope that you feel better soon, it must be a girl, I think they take more out of you to make than boys ;-))

I think the exchange you received is gorgeous and what a lot of work had gone into it !

Take care xx

Lynn said...

Cheryl I'm so very happy for both of you! Congratulations!!
Here's hoping you'll be feeling much better soon. Preparing for your baby's arrival can be so much fun.
Your stitching mojo will return. Those hormone changes can really screw you up for awhile!
