Almost 4 months ago, I decided to take a break from the blog. My personal life had just been flipped upside down and I needed to reassess what I was going to do. Without even realizing it, I had been plunged into a new chapter in my life that would soon consume my entire being. I'm sure you're asking yourself what kind of changes could cause this kind of introspection and the change was a very simple one, I found out I was pregnant. FGH had gotten herself knocked up and my break from the blog couldn't have come at a better time.
The first trimester of pregnancy was about to bend me over and make me its bitch. I lived off of saltine crackers, Life Savers hard candy and luke warm water. Even looking at pictures of food would make me nauseous. Sipping cold water would make me throw up, the smell of scrambled eggs would automatically make me gag, getting out of bed too quickly would make me hurl... I was absolutely miserable. I'm not even talking about the hormonal and emotional roller coaster I was on, I'll save that for another blogpost.

The blog was the last thing on my mind, I was too busy trying to keep a couple mouthfuls of food down. The more time passed, the harder it's been to get back into writing. I've even tossed around the idea of just letting it go completely, but the reality is I love writing. Writing has always been cathartic for me. So now that the first trimester is over and I can actually eat a meal without projectile vomiting halfway across the room, I've decided to get back into blogging for as long as I can.
How long will I be able to keep this up, you're wondering? Who knows. Once I give birth to Fatbaby Hedonist, I don't know if I'll be able to juggle it all. However, I've decided to just write while I can and while I still want to. So you may see that in a few months I won't be posting as often or that I'll abruptly disappear from social media. If (and when) that happens, rest assured that I'm off learning how to be a mother and how to keep a fragile infant alive.
