Announcements!

1. The winner of the Classy Cosmetics giveaway is Jacqueline of Wingledings! Please contact me to collect your prize! (I don't know how to get ahold of you because there is no email address in your profile and your blog doesn't have comments enabled! :) )

2. My husband turned off the computer in the middle of the "system" I had going for emailing people the Valentine Subway Art listing so I know a few people who posted about it still don't have it yet (but I don't know who)! Please email me at craftilyeverafter@gmail.com and I will send it to you.

3. A lot of people asked if they could still have the Subway Art even if they didn't have a blog and the answer is YES! It's available in my Etsy shop- just select the 'Personalized Subway Art' listing and tell me in the notes you would like the Valentine version.

4. I am pregnant! Which I write with an exclamation point to try to feel excited about it but really all I feel is ridiculously miserably incapacitatingly nauseous. Like out-of-this-world sick day and night and even in the middle of the night so I haven't been near the computer which is why my responses have been slow or non-existent. I'm sorry! Please bear with me and hopefully I will feel human again soon. My poor husband has been having to take off work to take care of Annalise while I spend my days writhing about on the couch and crying. Prayers/good-wishes/loads-of-pity gratefully accepted. :)

  1. My OB/GYN suggested I take Zantac (the acid reducer) for the nausea and it did wonders for me and I have passed that info along to every pregnant women I know. Some it worked wonders for and others it sadly did not, but it's worth the try! Hope you start feeling better I remember the feeling all too well and it's not fun at all!

  13. Congrats! I was super sick during my pregnancy too. I want more kids in the future but the thought of morning sickness is almost enough to make my daughter an only child! I wish I had a remedy to share but nothing I ever tried (ginger, peppermint tea, etc) worked. I only got relief by never letting my stomach get totally empty and by hitting week 16! Hope you are feeling better soon!

  14. Congratulations! How far along are you? I ended up on Zofran during my pregnancies. I hope you find some relief soon. Congrats again!

  15. Congrats! I needed IV fluids 6 times when I was pregnant and lost 18lbs in the first 3 months... take care of yourself. The only good thing was it was my first baby. I can't imagine going through that with a little one. Prayers for you!

  18. I was starting to worry about you, but I'm glad to hear it's "just" pregnancy. I hope you feel better soon - it's hard to be incapacitated when you have a little one who doesn't understand. When is your due date?

  29. Congrats to you! I haven't blogged, checked email, logged into fb for weeks for the very same reason. I am due mid-August. My little guy is 11-months-old. I feel your pain. I really, really do! When are you due? Congrats again, and thanks for the great crafty ideas!

  30. By the way, for what it's worth, my midwife suggested three daily doses of vitamin B-6 (50 mg three times a day) to ease nausea and to boost energy. I have been coming around after a few days of that. You might want to check with your provider, but my midwife is very conservative when it comes to taking ANYTHING potentially harmful. Hope you feel better.

    AND - have to mention sea sick wrist bands. They help to ease the quick onset nausea. Definitely worth the $5 in the pharmacy!

  31. I have no advice, but congratulations!

  32. Congrats! How sweet they are....so fresh from God! (or will be in 40 weeks??) You'll forget you ever were nauseated!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Zofran will save your life!!! I promise!! Just be sure to take colace (stool softener) w/ it too! Up to dose it what they give you at first will not work! I promise it is the best stuff ever!

  34. Congrats on being preg. I bought lemon drops when I was preg. Just the hard candy lemon drops in the candy section in any grocery store. They worked awesomely.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Congrats...I am so sorry you are feeling terrible. I am expecting a little one in June and my doctor said Vitamin B6 if you can stomach it and Emetrol (over the counter)but it makes me sleepy though. Good luck..hopefully it won't last too much longer!

  36. Congratulations on a new addition! Prayers that you will begin to feel human sooner rather than later.

  52. Congratulations on your pregnancy! I hope the morning sickness subsides soon, and that you have a happy, healthy motherhood journey. Have you tried Psi Bands? They helped me a ton with my morning sickness, and my girls use them now for motion sickness on road trips.
