Yep, a little Chef is on the way...

baby-081107-3
Baby Chef, 14 weeks

Most of you figured out my not-so-subtle hint yesterday. Yes, I do indeed have a "bun in the oven"! It's really very, very, very exciting, and feels very weird at the same time. Some of you might have noticed that I've posted a bit less, and definitely fewer recipes, and this is the reason. I have felt very uninspired to cook, and while I've been lucky enough not to have had any morning sickness (or anytime-of-the-day-sickness, really) I haven't been eating a whole lot, either. No cravings, as far as I can tell...

The baby is due in mid-May (actually, the tentative date is the same as my own birthday, May 21, but I'm sure it'll be any other day) so I'm about halfway there. So far, it's been really easy, except for a lot of hormonal roller-coaster mood-shifting - let's hope it stays as easy as this!

Anyway - I probably won't post a whole lot about this, but I really wanted to share with all my friends out there, across the world. Many hugs!

Sarah said...

Congratulations, that's such wonderful news! I hope to conceive a little chef soon too. I hope you continue to avoid morning sickness.

annamaria said...

Men åh Anne vad roligt! Jättegrattis!!! Usch jag vet precis hur det är - laga mat var för mig en pina, hungrig jämt men utan aptit. Kunde knappt läsa kokböcker och då är det illa! Men det är värt allt det - när den lille/lilla tittar ut så smakar kaffet normalt igen och himmel so gosigt. Kramizzzar från mig!!

Annika said...

Stort grattis från mig! Du har något alldeles fantastiskt framför dig!!! Blir nästan lite avundsjuk; själv har jag gjort mitt på den fronten, visserligen hela fyra gånger - men ändå...det är lika magiskt varje gång.

Goody said...

Congratulations. That's so exciting.

Brandy said...

grattis!

Anna said...

GRATTIS Anne! Vad roligt att höra!! Är själv gravid i 39:e veckan och hoppas på att lillkillen i magen är nyfiken nog på sin nya värld för att kika ut allra snarast. Jag har liksom du, ett stort matintresse, men med graviditeten försvann en stor del av intresset. Intresset återkommer säkert i sinom tid, kroppen säger väl åt en på något sätt vad man ska fokusera på. Sköt om dig och njut av det lilla livet i magen!

Congratulations Anne!!!! 2009 will be a very good year!!!!
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.

with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons bring
the best to you and yours!
