Thankful.

This Thanksgiving is particularly special to me. Last year, I made it my resolution to be more thankful. Instead of asking God for things to happen in my life or constantly focusing on my problems (and asking God to solve them), I made a conscious effort to instead focus my energy on thanking God for all of the amazing things in my life that I was appreciative for- that I have a loving husband, we both have jobs, loving family members and friends, a home we both love, cars to get from point a to point b and just the little things in life---like being able to have a nice brunch with friends or having a really great day at work.


A funny thing happened when I started thanking God for what I had instead of asking for what I wanted or asking Him to solve all of my problems. The more I thanked Him, the more and more I saw His favor light up my entire life. There was a radical, noticeable positive shift in nearly every aspect of my life.


I got an amazing new job that I love and that fulfills me every day. My anxiety seemed to melt away completely. I became re-committed to my workout routine. I felt better than ever, especially mentally and emotionally.


Now, what is this post really getting to? I suspect many of you have figured it out by now. I know I haven't been myself lately at all. I've really neglected my blog and I haven't been my normal, energetic, motivated self. I haven't been as responsive to emails and haven't written a lot of content...but I think you will understand why when you read the rest of this post.


My husband and I are thrilled to announce that we are expecting our first child in May! I have always wanted to be a mother and I feel so incredibly blessed. We are so excited to become parents and grow together as a family. Some days, it still doesn't feel real.

I am going to write separate posts about how we found out, ultrasound updates, skincare routine updates, cravings, etc, but I wanted to share this news on a special day, Thanksgiving, because we are truly more thankful than anything for this incredible blessing.



I am 13 weeks and 1 day along now and have had a lot of symptoms that have kept me from being my normal self, which is truthfully why I have not been blogging. It was difficult for me to just let everything go and offer no explanation to my incredible readers...but I had to listen to my body and I also did not feel comfortable making the announcement earlier into my pregnancy. I hope you all understand.


I have had the opposite of morning sickness, which basically means that I am nauseous every day from about 3 or 4 p.m. until I fall asleep (and it worsens by the hour and there is never relief because I never actually throw up). I also have zero energy. I can make it through the workday (barely, some days) and then I usually sit on the couch for a couple of hours to wind down and I go up to bed at 8:30 most nights and am asleep by 9:30 or so. I had to hire a cleaning service recently because I didn't even have the energy to clean our home (and I usually LOVE cleaning). Last weekend was the first time I was able to clean the house (with H's help) since I found out I was pregnant (I will do an updated posted about cleaning products too since I switched to natural ones for the pregnancy.)


I am not complaining at all about my symptoms---they come with pregnancy and as long as our baby is healthy and happy and growing, I really don't care much about how I feel---but I wanted to clarify why I haven't been around lately. It's been tough because I love blogging and I love interacting with my readers and getting excited about putting together outfits each morning. 

During my first trimester, I feel I've been focused completely on this pregnancy and really listening to what I needed, and it was rest. Since I am on the computer all day at work and write a lot as part of my job, it felt really draining to me to come home and whip out the laptop again (which, before I was pregnant was my normal routine and I absolutely loved coming home to work on a blog post). As I get further along in my pregnancy, I notice days where I have more energy than others and I am hoping that my energy levels continue to increase as time goes on.


Thank you to everyone sending their well wishes and for all of those who checked in with me during my blogging break to make sure I was okay. It really means a lot to me and I thank everyone for their patience as I've been taking a break for these past few months.


More than anything, I am so excited to share this journey with you all---and I am so glad I can learn so much from my readers who are mothers and have lots of great advice and wisdom to share.



(from our NT scan at 11 weeks)


Thank you so much for reading and for your support, thoughts and prayers---and happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

    Very, very happy for you. :) Funnily enough, I'm also pregnant and due in May! 14w1d today. And we just found out on Monday that it's a BOY!

  55. Being pregnant, while not the easiest thing, is definitely a beautiful thing!! First trimester sucks, but second trimester is so much better!! Although...I did recently leave my lunch plate on the bed instead of taking it to the sink...and I put the Pledge in the fridge so...I may be losing my mind..take my opinion for what it's worth! ;) Congrats on your new addition!!!

  62. Congrats!!! I had a feeling after your last haul video only had 2 cardigans...something that can be easily worn throughout a pregnancy :)

    Hope you start feeling better soon- I remember thinking during my first trimester how I wasn't sure I ever wanted to be pregnant again, that the naseau and exhaustion were too much. Now almost into the third trimester I feel amazing and am absolutely loving every moment. Just wait until you feel those first kicks- they're seriously magical. Congrats girlie, so excited for you!!!

Do excited for you and your husband!

  86. Congrats, I am so excited for you! You are starting a very awesome, amazing, beautiful journey. I had a very similar first trimester - I felt nauseous the entire day, but never the relief of throwing up. I had zero energy until my 3rd tri (when I was too swollen to do anything, and ended up put on bedrest. But enough about me!) My son will be 18 months on Xmas Eve and the time has flown. You just honestly have no idea what a blessing you've been given, how much your life will change for the better and how mindblowing it all is. This is the beginning of a love you have never known, and I am so, so happy for you. <3

  91. Congratulations to you and your husband! I hope you start to feel better soon. We found out I was expecting at 13 weeks and 5 days would you believe but a friend who was pregnant at the same time had the most awful sickness and I really felt for her. It's amazing how we all react so differently but the end goal is a healthy baby and I wish you all the best and look forward to hearing more when you have more energy!

  101. Congratulations :) !!!!!! When I was pregnant I was nauseous all day as well, it lasted for at least 4-5 months. I tried so many things, the seaband, gingertea and all those things, and the only thing that seemed to help was the non-drowsy Dramamine. It'll be over sooner than you know :)

  107. Congratulations, that's wonderful news.

    I'm currently 20 weeks pregnant, had a lot of nauseous feelings during the first trimester, it then wore off around weeks 14-16. I was a sick few times but only brought up the water I downed right before, much better than bringing nothing up! Your energy should increase after 14 weeks as well, as the second trimester is meant to be the easiest. I can't believe I'm half way through, it goes past so quickly!

  124. Congratulations Veronika! I had a baby girl in July and I also have a 3-year old and I'm going to tell you that they are the greatest blessings from God. I'm forever thankful for my beautiful children and I'm beyond elated that you will experience being a parent. I hope your morning sickness will be more bearable in the coming weeks. I was lucky enough that I had no morning sickness, unusual cravings and a huge weight gain.

Mine are still around somewhat but it has gotten a LOT better since the beginning. The best thing, is a new life will be here soon!!! I'm excited and terrified all at the same time. But hopefully you will keep us updated and most of all, post about some fab baby stuff in the meantime!!!

  133. Oh no sorry about that last comment, I was trying to post from my phone and it was NOT working. I can't believe I did not see this until just now, I am so excited for you and have to admit, I was a tiny bit suspicious since you hadn't been blogging as much lately and I was hoping you would make an announcement soon!

  135. Congrats! Looking forward to seeing your journey as a first time mommy. :) I am 8 + 1 weeks pregnant with our 3rd and my morning sickness has gone from all day to mostly just the evening. It's awful. By the picture you posted, it looks like you're having a little girl. :)

  138. A BIG CONGRATS!!!! That is SOOOO exciting! While I can't really comment or relate to what a singleton pregnancy is like, since having quadruplets left me a little isolated when it came to advice, I CAN say that Zofran helped me tremendously with all the nausea. I had it terrible for four months straight. It does and will eventually calm down or leave you completely, but until then, if you're having trouble functioning/eating/sleeping, etc. then Zofran is an excellent option. I truly wish you guys the best, you're going to be wonderful parents!!

  146. Congratulations! If you are still sick I would recommend getting a prescription for Zofran from your doctor. It has been my savior over the past few weeks for my productivity.

  148. Congrats Veronika!! The first semester is hard but like others have said the second is an awesome break. I never thought I'd be at 35 weeks but it really does start flying by towards the end.

    So curious to hear how your skin has reacted! I feel like we had similar issues and I've been so happy to discover that my acne was directly tied to my cycle, so not having one means my skin has been amazing. Not sure what's going to happen when my pregnancy is over - I'll just breast feed for 2 years!

  149. Congratulations to you and your husband! Becoming a parent is the most amazing thing in the world. I had terrible morning sickness and zero energy early on in my pregnancy and tried to wait for it to go away on its own. I ended up having morning sickness for the entire pregnancy and wish I would have asked for a Zofran prescription sooner! It was a lifesaver!!

  153. Congratulations! I knew it...when I watched the YouTube video of the clothing rack, you looked very different..like you were sick...and then you didn't do a video for a long time. I kept thinking, I wonder if she's pregnant. Wow..so generous of you to share this personal news...thank you! BTW, the nausea is a sign that your pregnancy is going well and it should go away soon, then you're going to feel great and want to eat everything. Congrats again!

  159. Correct me if I'm wrong but after getting your positive test, did you get a blood test done to confirm it?

    ReplyDelete
  160. @sally- I had a blood test to test my HcG levels to see if I could get an ultrasound to see the baby (they wanted them to be high enough to see a heartbeat)

    ReplyDelete
  161. Do you remember how many days past ovulation you were and what the hcg level was? I got my blood drawn today and I'm freaking out about my level possibly being too low.
