I've been Spotlighted!

I am very excited, a little embarrassed and a little humbled that Natasha from Maw Books interviewed me for her new reader spotlight feature. Embarrassed because I just knew she was going to dig up that comment about boobs that I left on her blog. :-) And humbled because Natasha is a big player in the book blogging community and a lot of people read her blog.
Thanks Natasha!

If you read the interview and or notice the new baby ticker widget on the sidebar, you'll realize I am expecting a baby. We are very excited about this but I am having some horrible morning sickness. I've been able to get a lot of reading in but have not been getting reviews or other content posted here. Hopefully I'll be feeling better soon and will get caught up on reviews etc.

Great interview. Glad to know more about you.
Your recipe looks good. Probably has about 500 calories per slice. Cant wait to make it.
Congrats on your baby!!!

I loved the interview and HAVE to try that recipe! Good luck with the morning sickness. That was the only time in my life I've been successful at losing weight!

What an interesting interview and very informative. You say that you would love to visit Cornwall; well that is where I live and I can't honestly see me living anywhere else. Have you read the 'Poldark' series by Winston Graham? I'm sure you will love Cornwall all over again, but in a differnet period of time.

Keep up with the good work and good luck with the new baby when it arrives.

I did see your ticker and wanted to congratulate you! As someone who suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum with my son, I understand how awful morning sickness can be. One thing I found (unfortunately, I found it out fairly late in the game) is to hold something cold in your hand- a can of cold soda, can of orange juice, maybe a baggie or ice or an ice pack- and keep holding it til it feels like your hands are going to freeze off. This actually helped my nausea. I learned this by accident, but found out later it's a trick used by nurses on medical flights when their patients feel ill.

Also, I recommend drinking something easy on the stomach first thing in the morning. Pink lemonade is pretty tasty, and honestly, if it comes up, it tastes pretty much the same, and you get your morning puke out of the way! ;) (Stay away from orange flavored anything though, it burns and tastes really bitter on the way back up.)

Might I suggest the book No More Morning Sickness? I know way, way too much about "morning" sickness, and I hope you feel better soon. I was hospitalized a few times during my pregnancy and on some pretty fierce medication for a while. It's insanity that I want to have more kids, isn't it?

Best wishes to you. :)

I clicked over here from Natasha's interview with you--loved the post and your comments (including the boob one--as a mom of 2 I can relate!). Congratulations on your pregnancy. I hope you'll start feeling better soon.

I loved the interview. You were so great. I'm sorry about the morning sickness. Will it pass after the first trimester? I hope so. Congratulations on the new baby.
