Hey There Baby

We recently found out I was pregnant, this was a big surprise (for me mostly). James had been telling me for weeks I was pregnant but I wouldn't listen to him and then after 3 days of wanting to puke at any smell I gave in and tested.... and now we are here.

Our lil duck is due at the end of July and sometimes I wish it was closer yet other days I wish it was further away. We are excited but neither of us know anything about babies and there is so much we need to prepare for. I know I still have so far to go but I feel like there is so much to do and organise!

The past few weeks have been a bit of a struggle for me but we think we may have solved that. I have a vitamin D deficiency and I stopped taking my tablets because I thought the new pregnancy vitamins would have enough in them but considering I've been struggling to get out of bed and nearly passing out in the shower from tiredness we are guessing it wasn't enough.

This is not something I thought would happen for another year or two. I have been looking forward to 2015 because I was really wanting to get back into full time work and hoping to build myself a career but everything has changed now. I do worry, and I feel bad because I haven't properly worked for a year which means my financial contributions to the house have been extremely minimal which isn't ideal when we've only had our mortgage for two years.

I don't plan on turning this into a whole pregnancy/baby blog but I figured I do now have something to blog about and I have missed blogging and interacting with the people I've met through blogging. I have met some awesome people through the pregnancy subreddits and enjoy chatting with them, plus they are teaching me so many things which is good because I am just utterly clueless at this stage.

Araluen Botanic Park

I've been inspired by Brianna to post my photos from Araluen Park, they were taking at the end of the tulip festival which is why some are dying or they look droopy.

Life has been casual. I've been working casually based as well as casually studying, and lately I've been playing a lot of World of Warcraft because the new expansion is out.

It's my birthday in a couple of weeks and I am having people around so I need to do a lot of cleaning to get the house and backyard ready. Also I decided to try and save money I would make desserts myself, I may regret this.

When driving to phsyio I always see cows and horses in paddocks and wish I had my camera, so today I went on an adventure to go find some cows to photograph. I also saw quite a few pregnant goats which were massive, but sadly they wouldn't come close enough. The two horses were very curious while the cows got bored of me after a minute or two. I need to become friends with someone that has a farm.

The blog is having a complete overhaul, I will be focusing more on photos. The layout will probably change a few times until I settle on something I like.
