Where have I been?
It's been a long time since I last posted anything but if you follow me on Instagram, then you will have seen this picture.
I found out I was pregnant the day after my dad's funeral and ever since then I have suffered from bad nausea, sickness, heartburn and acid reflux. It's been quite a tough few months but these common first trimester symptoms are beginning to ease as I am now 16 and a half weeks.
Although these are easing, I have been suffering more with anxiety and low mood associated with antenatal depression. I have been feeling very restless, not sleeping and eating, crying alot and not able to concentrate on things - hence why there has been nothing on the blog. First thing in the morning tends to be the worse though.
I have to wait until the end of the month to see a specialist who can help me, so in the mean time, I have been trying to get a grip on my emotions and my thoughts with the help of my family and my midwife.
I truly hope to be able to post more on the blog and make more cards and crafts so that it acts as a kind of therapy for me.
So for now on there could be alsorts of posts on the blog as I try to make my way through this pregnancy including crafts, cards, home decor and more personal ones.
To those that are reading this post, I hope you don't mind me writing this but I felt I needed to get this off my chest and to help me move on.
I hopefully will be back soon with some cards I have made in the last few months.
Hope you are having a great day.
