So yes, as I’m sure some of you will have guessed…

I’m pregnant! We’ll have a baby in December!

This is the big thing I haven’t been able to talk about, and that has been taking over my life. It’s exciting and also terrifying. It’s kind of difficult to think of anything else, and there is so much to do!

I’ve not had a great first trimester, I was completely unprepared for how completely debilitating morning sickness is, but I’m starting to feel a bit better now and at least now we know that bebe is ok and we can finally talk about it!

I have a million thought to share which will no doubt come out soon (like I say, it’s difficult to think of anything else), but I’ll contain myself for now and leave it at that!

Oh, yeah, I’ve been saving the cheesy couple photos especially! Aren’t they hilarious?

    Congratulations. That’s why pregnancy lasts nine months – to let you get used to the idea! I feel I should warn you though, finding affordable brightly coloured baby clothes is tricky – it’s all pastel-tastic.

    Oh Franca & Dave! So happy for you and hope you’ll be together soon to enjoy all the changes. I didn’t enjoy the first part, my nausea lasted 4 months, day in, day out (morning sickness is a myth) but entering the 5th month was like an awakening.

    Wishing you both lots of laughter ahead and a healthy rest of the year! *SO EXCITED*

    Congratulations, that is wonderful news! It is crazy how pregnancy completely takes over your body, making so many changes other than the obvious one. My best strategy for morning sickness was to eat small frequent snacks on a schedule, about every 2 hours.
