A week after this photo shoot I found out I was pregnant. This particular day, I was feeling excellent. It was just cold, but either than that, it was a beautiful day. I was so looking forward to writing a blog post about this outfit. I love everything about it and I just couldn’t wait to share it with you all.

I got home all amped up and I couldn’t stop looking at the pics and smiling, I just wanted to share them right away. But as we know, with every post there has to be planning and content to be prepared, I didn’t want to put up mediocre work just for the sake of posting. I wanted you to have the best and feel exactly what I felt about what I was posting. I postponed the posting for a day or two (so I thought), the two days became three, a week and a month later.

I was feeling fine until I did a home pregnancy test and got a confirmation from the Doctor. It’s as if the pregnancy switch just went on, on some aha I got you! That evening I didn’t sleep well at all. The nausea was so terrible it felt like my internal organs wanted to come out up my throat. And that was the beginning of it all. That is how I felt from the moment I woke up till I went to bed in the evening.

The mornings began (and still do) with the puking. Throughout the day is the nausea, the constant headaches and the fatigue. The annoying part of this all is ‘dammed if I eat, dammed if I don’t”. I googled ways to try and ease the morning sickness, err maybe all day sickness, and found advice on how one should eat small meals regularly, try drinking fluids min 8 glasses a day, try taking naps etc. The minute I put something in my mouth it’s as if the little one inside me is on some, “take it back, take it back, I don’t want it!” and when I don’t eat it’s like a little voice will be saying “hello, it’s time to feed me!”

With all of that going on, at the back of my head I still had the urge that I haven’t done a post in a while. The ideas are flowing but the energy to execute them is nowhere. This all day sickness is draining me! All I want to do is lie down and listen to it play with me the way it wants to. Some days are better and some are worse! But on the better days I try to enjoy the moment because I know it won’t last.

I’m looking forward to the day the sickness subsides, better yet, totally gone! I miss doing what I love. I miss connecting with you all and sharing ideas with you. I miss feeling good and looking fabulous.

Hopefully it’ll be soon. Until then, here’s a pick of the last photo shoot where I felt “human”.
