Woohoo - nausea is GONE!

While I'm still waiting for that famed second trimester burst of energy to hit me, I am VERY pleased to report that the nausea has gone! Thanks for all of you who wished it away for me.

And yes, we've told Romily. Of course, she doesn't quite get it, but understands it quite well for someone who's only two and a half! She came along to the scan and I'm talking to her about what's going on. She knows that 'there's a baby in mummy's tummy - just like Romily was in mummy's tummy'. I reckon that's pretty good. And she just loves babies, so I think she'll be a great little helper to me when bub #2 makes its entrance.

She is still such a little doll. Really interested in books and 'reading' right now. So a big thanks to Doodlebug Gail and her daughter for sending Romily four Dora the Explorer books all the way from Canada! Romily loves the books, and they are learn-to-read books with mini-pictures embedded in the text. Rom is cottoning on to this idea quite well...she has also just about memorised a couple of them already! Thanks Gail :)

I finally downloaded my photos from Christmas and from our holiday. Here's a photo of my sister-in-law with the messenger-style bag I made for her. She really liked it. She loves blues, and she was impressed that I'd made it myself! It's another one from the Flea Market Bag pattern I blogged about here and here.

More holiday and crafty photos to follow soon!

What a gorgeous bag!

Will have to have a rummage through Alex's old books and see if there is anything Romilly might like.

Glad to hear you are feeling better. How exciting to have a new baby in the family!

great news about the nausea! I have entered heartburn territory so am back to feeling pretty blah. It's a good thing newborns are so adorable, you forget all about the trials of pregnancy as soon as they arrive!

You brought back a funny memory with this posting - we took Sarah along to Nick's scan - the most prominent thing on the picture was the spinal column - on seeing this (in her infinite three year old wisdom) she announced 'Oh look Mummy, it's a crocodile' I still don't know how the sonographer managed to complete the scan in fits of giggles - glad the nausea's gone though that'll make you feel a whole lot better :o)

What a lovely bag and so glad you are feeling better (have been there and done all to soon ago and it is just too fresh in my mind)

Amelia came along to all of my scans as well. This really helped with the transition of becoming a BIG SISTER as "the baby" has always been a person and she was very excited in 'meeting him'

Congratulations on baby #2! It will be as special and beautiful as your little Romily.

Love the bag!
And I've said it on EB but... congratulations on your baby news! Seeing that u/s photo makes me a gooey... Romily will be a wonderful big sister, I am sure. How exciting - more EB Sewing babes!

So glad to hear the nausea is over, I remember that so well, and I was so hugely relieved when it finally lifted - the rest of the pregnancy seemed plain sailing from then on! We are just starting to think about a second one - if only we could just skip that first trimester!
Gorgeous photo of Romily - she will make such a great big sister.
