Girl, I’m back!!!

I know, I know! It’s been fifty ‘leven days since my last blog post, since I uploaded anything to YouTube, since I’ve really been serious about my social media content and sharing all those gems you’re used to.

It all started out with me needing to take a “short” break from work due to burnout, refocusing my work goals and bouncing back after one of my main clients parted ways and recovering from damage to our home after Hurricane Dorian. Then that turned into recovering from the mental toll the storm took after it devastated parts of the country and just had us all rattled. Someway, somehow, we’re still #BahamasStrong.

For some reason I felt drained, emotionally depleted, tired, cranky and always hungry. I thought it was just the aftershock of everything that had happened and everything I was battling.

But I took a pregnancy test early one morning, because I just had a funny feeling, and the pee on the stick told me all I needed to know about why I felt how I felt!

I’M PREGNANT Y’ALL!

I first made the announcement on Instagram, but big news like this is only official official when it hits the website. So far everyone has been so supportive and encouraging and already offering advice, mommy play dates and helpful memes to keep me laughing and learning.

What I’d thought was just emotional and physical fatigue from work and the natural disaster that uprooted The Bahamas, proved to be so much more. I’m carrying our first child; I get teary eyed just thinking about it.

Now at 23 weeks, I’m growing, glowing and can even get out of the house (trust me this is an accomplishment!). This second trimester has been the best and has surely been treating me well. How was my first trimester, you ask!? HORRIBLE!

My skin was dry, my lips were chapped, my hair and nails got super brittle, I couldn’t keep down water, my morning sickness somehow switched to evening sickness, I craved any and everything sweet, to the point where I carried around a brown paper bag full of ginger mints, gum, fruity Mentos, Now and Later chewies and those little yellow and red candies the lady at church used to hand out. I was scarfing down everything in sight and finding out the hard way what baby liked and what baby didn’t like.

What I’m Craving

These days my cravings are a little less wild. Thankfully I’ve eased up on the sweets, but I could scarf down a whole pack of hard salami in one sitting. I’m loving bacon and egg sandwiches, grapefruits and apples and occasionally, I get this insatiable urge for a Burger King Whopper…add cheese, no pickles, no tomatoes! I’ve been asked a lot what I’ve been craving and there’s no one food or drink item that takes the cake (oooohhh cake!) I just need to be constantly eating!

Finally I Can…

…brush my teeth without gagging, drink water on an empty stomach, sleep through the night without having to pee one million times. Ah, simple pleasures! Earlier in my pregnancy, the smallest things were the hardest to do. I always called myself an owl because I loved staying up late at night, watching TV, writing, working. But my first trimester had me diving conch (falling asleep) in public spaces, going to bed at 8pm and literally sleeping the entire day away.

First Kicks

Those gassy, butterflies in my tummy have quickly transformed into full on movements and little baby kicks now! I felt them for the first time recently and I can already tell that this one is an active little baby! I can also already tell…he or she wont let me get much sleep, as most of his or her activity happens late at night, during my bedtime! Yay me!

How We Told Everyone

I found out I was pregnant in early September and I wanted to find cute creative ways to tell our family. I mean my sister and my dad’s birthdays are that month and I wanted to purchase a little onesie to gift to our moms but…they may have killed me had I waited that long; in fact they told me they would have! So instead, the very day we found out, we HAD to tell my family. In the days following we spread the word and captured most of it on camera!

Check out this YouTube video and see the first glimpses of our little angel, my first doctor’s visits and some BTS of our backyard pregnancy announcement photoshoot!

Whew, chile!

As you can see, so much has been going on with me. But with the cat out of the bag and so much more to share about this new journey; your fairy blogmother is officially back on the scene!

P.S. do you like my new website? Click here to start at the top and look around. I’m planning an official launch for early 2020! 😉

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
    structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    I leave a response each time I especially enjoy a article on a website or if I
    have something to contribute to the discussion. It’s a result of the passion communicated in the article I
    read. And on this article …And Baby Makes 3! – Ianthia Smith Ferguson. I
    was moved enough to post a comment 😉 I do have a few
    questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be only me or does it look like like
    some of these responses appear like they are coming from brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are posting on additional online sites, I would
    like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Would you list every one
    of all your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or
    twitter feed?

    Howdy, I think your website could be having web browser compatibility problems.
    Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Other than that, great blog!

    I?m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that?s both educative
    and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I found this during my search for something
    regarding this.
