Big News!

    Well, big news for me anyway: I'm pregnant!  I'm almost six months along now, and if you've been wondering where I've been...I've spent the last five months on the bathroom floor. I was diagnosed with Hyperemesis Gravidarum, and it has just been debilitating. You may have heard of this condition, as it appears that Duchess Kate has been afflicted with it; I was unfamiliar with it until I was diagnosed. Debilitating is really not a strong enough word; there were times that I was honestly convinced that I would not live through it. Luckily, my husband works at home and has been able to help take care of Henry. I'm just now starting to feel a little better, so hopefully my last trimester will be more pleasant.
     I was 100% certain that I was expecting a girl this time, but as it turns out, I will be having another boy! Truthfully, I was hoping for twins, if only so I could tell people that I was expecting a Time Lord :) .
    Now that I have finally been able to start getting a little of myself back, I have been planning my next sewing project. I decided that the looser, low-waisted styles of the 1920s might flatter my new, rounder shape, so I've been looking at pictures for inspiration. I do have one beautiful vintage '20s dress that I've worn the few times I've been out; I'll get a good picture and share it soon. I'm hoping to have a new dress finished for Christmas, and I have a very cute outfit planned for Henry, so stay tuned!
    Thank you all for hanging in here with me through my, um, hiatus, and I'm hoping to start blogging (and sewing!) regularly again. Well, as regularly as I was before, at least... :)

    1. I can't believe that you were brave enough to have another one (three!) after going through this; if I'd had HG with Henry, he'd definitely be an only child!

    2. The first two were only 15 months apart, must have been 'baby brain!' X

  18. I recently came across nabbysvintagelife.blogspot.com and would like to discuss the possibility of paying you to display an advertisement on the site.

    We have a large customer base of clients prepared to pay to display discrete adverts, contextually matched to the content of the page on high quality sites like yours, and this can be a great way to generate an income without compromising your website.

    Please email me back if you would be interested in finding out more and I will send you a follow-up email outlining the opportunity in more detail.

    I look forward to hearing from you shortly.

  20. Hey Nabby! Congratulations on your little one, and I hope you're doing well!

    I LOVE your sewing skills and looking at your blog, so I've nominated you for the Leibster Blog Award! I hope to hear from you again on the blogosphere soon! (But babies do take a lot of attention... so maybe when you can get around to blogging, that is!)
