Hi all! Wow a whole month since my last post. I have a really great ‘excuse’ though
Baby #3 is on his/her way!
and morning sickness kicked my butt for about 5 weeks before I finally asked my doctor for something to help.
And help it did!
So now that I’m feeling a little closer to ‘normal’ (did not have morning sickness this bad with the previous two so I have no idea why this one was so bad—I’m thinking my body is just reeeeally good at this by now haha) I decided to update you all on the baby and the resulting changes in my work & life
Let’s do the baby update first!
Due date: August 15, 2013
Week of pregnancy: 10 weeks
Cravings: none really yet. There are things I want to eat only because I know they won’t upset my stomach but nothing that I’m craving.
Meds: Can’t stomach the prenatal pill so I get to take gummies also on my anti-nausea pill.
Drink of choice: decaf french vanilla iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts
Food of choice: whatever sounds the most appealing.
Clothing: still in my own non-maternity wear.
Weight gain: actually it’s a loss since I couldn’t really stomach much for 5 weeks.
Milestones so far: had an internal ultrasound last week and it is definitely only one in there my family & friends thought maybe it was twins because I was so sick
Ok now onto how my work will be changing:
I love graphic design. I love making blogs pretty.
But the stress it causes me to keep on track, make it perfect and make sure my clients are 110% happy isn’t really what I wanted when I started this journey over 2 years ago.
I’ve slowed way down on the clients I am taking on and will stop completely around the time the baby is born so I can take a maternity leave. What I will do instead is ramp up my DIY Your Blog Design posts, offer “Bits and Bobs” design elements (pre-made elements that I can quickly customize to your font/color/wording needs), and hopefully offer some super cute pre-made templates on a limited sale basis.
I am also working on a print-your-own graphic section. Invites, party packs, wall decor, etc.
I need things that take less time but still allow me creative freedom
I’m so excited about this newest addition to my family & to my business.
Pssst: This also means I will not be able to attend Haven Conference this year because it is too close to my due date. I am SO so bummed about that!!
I will however be at Blissdom again as a community leader in March but that is the only conference I can do this year so far.
I really look forward to meeting you & even if we can’t meet I hope to follow along the twitter stream for Haven!
