Well after months of waiting, I can finally share some big news – Ryan and I are expecting our first little veggie baby in January! I’ve been dying to be able to write about this for a while, mostly because we’re so excited, but also to explain my totally falling off the map with blogging, among other things.
Now that we’re past the first trimester, it’s been awesome to be able to share this news with our families and friends, and it’s so nice to get it out there publicly as well. Keeping it a secret was so hard! It’s still pretty surreal, and being able to share the news makes it seem like it’s actually happening.
It’s also great to finally be getting my appetite back. For most of my first trimester, not much sounded appetizing to me (except of course things like Popeyes Biscuits and Chocolate Pudding Pie). I was nauseous most of the time, and on the rare occasion that I actually had a craving for something, it was generally a bland carb like toast or waffles. I still have some off days, but I’m excited to be cooking again, and of course – eating!
And speaking of eating, that’s definitely what I’ll continue to write about here at C’est La Vegan. I’ll probably talk about some baby stuff from time to time, as it’s kind of hard not to when it’s the biggest thing in my life, but I have no intentions of turning this into a baby only blog. It’s still all about the food for me.
That being said, if any of you out there had vegan pregnancies or are raising vegan kids, I’d love to hear about your experiences. I’m always looking for good book recommendations as well, so feel free to suggest away.
And here’s a shot of the little alien from a few weeks ago. Pretty crazy!
