New to Dot Scribble's Shelves: The pitter patter of tiny feet!!

I thought it was time to come clean as to why the blog has been so quiet of late!! I am expecting my first baby! I am 12 weeks pregnant today and we had the first scan yesterday and all was well and baby Dot Scribbles is due around January 25th 2012.
I have still been reading but not at my usual rate as the morning sickness (which lasts all day!) has not been great, it's getting better though so things shall hopefully be getting busier round here in the next few weeks!
Don't worry, this isn't going to become a baby blog, I just wanted to share the news with you lovely people! The only baby related reading I have done so far is the book pictured which I have to say is excellent, I am very lucky in having Dr S as he can answer my questions but it is great to have this to dip in and out of too. I have also been knitting to distract me from the queasiness and I have nearly finished my first baby cardigan but I have had so many lovely books arrive over the past few weeks, I am really excited about reading and reviewing them now that I'm feeling a bit better!

Wonderful news! Congrats to you both!

A biscuit before I got up in the morning and 6 small meals rather than 3 big meals helped with my all day sickness. I found it was when I let myself get hungry that the sickness became worse.

And I love baby updates, I even have a Bookish Baby feature on my blog every few months.
And I hear you on the all-day sickness, I had that too, though it really becomes less after those first 12-16 weeks.

Hi Dot, I have only just discovered your website, as I came across your review of 'Down To Earth' by Melanie Rose, which I am currently reading. I would just like to congratulate you on your happy news and to wish you all the best. I would also like to say how much I'm enjoying reading your various book reviews.
