Charmaine mentioned in this post yesterday about Gamsol being harmful when pregnant or nursing! I pulled out my bottle and read the label - yup, it says it right there!! I knew it was a 'petroleum distillate' and I suppose being a chemical engineer and all I should have realized this may not be a good option, but since it's odorless it didn't even occur to me! I knew there are other things that shouldn't be done while pregnant... like purposely sniffing my black StazOn (mmm love that yummy almond smell!)...! I have heard that baby oil works as a Gamsol alternative but have never tried it - now I'm going to, and I'll let you know how it turns out. (check Charmaine's post, that's what she used & it looks great!)
As you can gather from this post - yes, I'm pregnant! It will be 20wks this weekend, we're expecting a baby girl on February 2. This isn't how I planned to "announce" this to my blogging friends - I was going to make a cute baby girl card or something - but I am freaking out a bit about this Gamsol thing so I thought I'd pass along the info, in case anyone else out there isn't reading their bottles!
And fyi... I've mentioned my messy room in the past, and other things about why my stamping productivity took a nose dive this summer - but this is the true reason. The first trimester was rough - feeling crappy and completely drained of energy (especially during my typical late night stamping time). I'm not nauseous anymore (thankfully!) but I still feel quite tired by the end of the day. So there you have it! The whole story!! :-)
