Where have I been? – Life update

Dear beauties,

Yes, I have sort of vanished from the face of the Earth in the past few months. I am sorry for that, but not much could be done about that. If you want to know the facts and reasons behind my disappearance, keep on reading!

As many of you may remember, I announced my pregnancy in beginning of January. My due date was 25th of March (which has come and gone and the baby is keeping us waiting) and since we didn't buy a single thing until we told everyone, we had a lot to do in those three months. 

I must say, that playing house all over again, decorating the nursery and buying baby clothes had been a blast and I enjoyed every minute of it. Everything had been set for about a month now, just waiting for the new addition to our family. I will share some photos once the little one arrives.

I had a really lovely pregnancy up until about 36 weeks (a normal pregnancy lasts about 40 weeks) and I was really proud of myself, saying sentences like »I could do this all the time« and »I don't even understand why I have to go on maternity leave« and similar. Well, then 36th week rolled around and all of a sudden, every possible nuisance and pain related to the last month hit me hard. I got back pain. I got cramps. I got an inflammation of the carpal tunnel (which I still have and typing is hell). I began suffering from high blood pressure and swelling. I was filling ill all the time. I started having ligament pain. You name it, it hurt. 

And yes, blogging was the last thing on my mind with my body so obviously set on hurting me. 

For the past couple of days, I've been feeling a little better, but it's possibly also because I know that it's really going to be any day now that little M. joins this world. I have some posts planned in the meantime, hopefully I'll be able to post them normally. 

And once I come back, we'll have plently of reasons to celebrate with a nice giveaway! 

Until next time, stay beautiful!
