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... :)
