Friends! I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve posted here. I just wanted to post a quick update to let you know why I’ve been MIA for so long.
WE’RE PREGNANT! <3
We will be at 11 weeks as of Thursday! I have been spending much of my time resting, hoping the remaining nausea will subside shortly. It’s funny I had written that post on Nausea & Morning Sickness before I even knew I was expecting! I had been nauseous for some time and was trying out old herbal remedies… no wonder they weren’t working. I was using the wrong ingredients not knowing I was under the pregnant category. haha.
Our due date is July 16th 2015. We are all hoping for a lil gal this time around. My son is 9 now, so it’s been quite some time since I’ve experienced these feelings. I will definitely have to brush up on my herbal help during this pregnancy & put together some posts. (I started a new category – yay!)
Hubs has been the most amazing & helpful soul I’ve ever known. I cannot express with words my amount of gratitude for him. <3
We recently celebrated the Solstice. (I had so many holiday drafts that I wanted up before Yule BUT bed had me instead) Anyways… He got so many thoughtful & helpful gifts for both me during pregnancy, our family & the new babe. <3
My honey got the baby a Himalayan salt lamp to go in the nursery & he got some moon stones (the stone of fertility) to ease my belly, ease stress, balance hormones, promote healthy lactation, & they will also be helpful to use during labor.
He also got us all a piece of Unakite to wear for our positive energy to be given to the babe, as well as promote a healthy strong bond & pregnancy. They are great to wear during pregnancy to promote health for the child & mother. They are good for the father and siblings to wear to develop a connection as well.
Here is the 3 of us on Yule morning. <3 I’m holding a pair of baby mocs from my loves. How sweet are they?! <3
If you’re interested, I have been keeping my Instagram updated. (I also have a giveaway going on over there right now for a bunch of herbal goodies) I would be delighted for you to join me over there. <3
Hope everyone is well! Happy Holidays!
