Slings & Things . . . What I’m Thinking About

Hello Everyone!  So sorry it has been so long and with no explanation.  A couple of posts back I mentioned I was sick and the thing is I kept getting sick….sinusitis and one cold after another and on top of that another kind of sick….morning sickness.  It has been a rough couple of months and I just have been managing to get by with accomplishing absolute essentials, like feeding my family (which was challenging enough…ha).  I’m still not feeling my best or anything like my normal self but each day I wake up I know it has to better than the last. I’m hoping to pop in more frequently and at least do 2 posts a week (that is my goal).  
So in turn there probably will be a few more, than normal, personal posts or baby style posts.  It’s on the brain what can I say.  And it has been almost 4 years since my last baby so there are so many great new pretty things out there that I am excited to search out and share.
I hope you all are well!  Thank you for checking in on me.  I am hoping for the best as I’m 13 weeks now.  I tend to get these really horrible headaches that basically just don’t go away.  So starring at the computer can be a little hard for me.  Anyhow, I say that to see if any of you have encountered that and have any suggestions?
Well, with all that said….So glad to pop in and say hello to all of you!  And I’m looking forward to slowly getting back into the swing of things!
xx Trina
P.S.  This is one item on my wish list.  A fabulous sling from Serena and Lily.

    oh man i am jealous.
    i really think that pregnancy and babies are the best thing in the whole wide world and i would do it again in a heart beat.
    you are a lucky girl.
    :) blessed.

    that sling is fabulous.
    i never had one…they were for hippies back then. ;)
    we had the fushia and turquiose snugli…gag.

    i am so happy for you.
    i am glad it was this and not something bad or sad…i was nervous for you.

    That sling is the cutest one I have seen out there. It’s worth the money. (It’s not all cheetahed out and blinged.)

    Yay! Congrats, Trina! I’m so happy for you. Hang in there with the morning sickness and headaches. I was really sick during both pregnancies, but the second time around learned of the Unisom / B6 remedy – it helped me a LOT, so you could talk to your dr. about that. I also got migraines (with aura) a LOT and there wasn’t much to do for those. I would usually take Tylenol and a shot of some type of caffeine (dr.’s recommendation).

    Hope things smooth out soon; I’ll be praying for a healthy pregnancy and baby! :-)

    Congratulations Trina! That is great news.

    I hope the morning sickness doesn’t last too long for you. I was lucky I didn’t have any morning sickness with my pregnancy. I’m not sure how I would have coped. A friend of mine had to carry a bucket with her from room to rom. Awful.

    Hope you are feeling better soon.

    oh so happy for you and your husband!!! this is exciting. Now 3 bloggy friends having babies! yippie:)

    I hope you are feeling better with the morning sickness. When you get those nasty headaches, try laying down and placing your forearm over your eyes, the slight pressure from the weight of your arm helps sometimes.
