Pickle Me Too, Where Have You Been?

Proof I'm still alive.

Proof I’m still alive.

Over the last year it’s seems I had disappeared from the blogging world. Between moving, adjusting to a new place, and just being burned out, it was hard getting back into the swing of things. Plus the last 5 months I’ve been sick as a dog. We’re expecting kiddo #5 in December. I haven’t said anything on Pickle Me Too about it because, bleh, I don’t feel good. Hyperemesis gravidarum. Me and pregnancy don’t get along. Thank God I’m finally on the upswing. It’s been a week since I last threw up *knock on wood*.

Please, I know many of you will want to give me advice on morning sickness but seriously, after 6 pregnancies, I’ve tried it all. The first was the worst, this one has been pretty close. My magnesium levels are fine, sea bands are a joke, yes I eat every 2 hours (that actually helps but only so much), avoiding gluten like the plague helped but again it just made it a little better (if I accidentally got gluten I threw up uncontrollably for at least 4 days), the next person to say ginger to me might get punched. Anyway, I am feeling better now.

I wanted to let you know I’m still alive and Pickle Me Too is not dead, it was simply on pause. Being sick for so long has left me exhausted but that’s slowly getting better too. I have a few things lined up over the coming months. New recipes, reviews and giveaways, Facebook Live demos, and hopefully more. I’m back!

    First of all…CONGRATULATIONS! Very excited for you, and pray the rest of your pregnancy, as well as the delivery, is smooth as creamery butter. 😉 Looking forward to your posts!

    Ahhh, very good to see you back. You look great I might add. The timing was perfect for me, and I’m so glad you’re feeling better. I just put up a half gallon jar of pickles yesterday. My house is really too warm for fermenting, but I’m going to keep a good eye on them and then put them in the fridge and let them go.

    Great that you’re back,
    Karen

    I’ve been doing pickles all my life, and the method of lacto-fermentation makes the most sense, and is simple and usually reliable since I have had no one get sick from trying my stuff. I always try something first and leave a note that says “if I die, don’t let anyone else try these pickles”, so far, no problem. Bob

  • Congratulations and glad to hear you are feeling better! Look forward to your posts. Blessings!

    Congratulations to you as well!! It’s great to hear you’re back. I sooo enjoyed your posts. After all, you encouraged me into this world of fermentation which I have really appreciated. Thanks so much for all your time and effort in teaching us these old ways! All the best with baby….and take it slow. Looking forward to your emails….😊 Hilde

    I suppose you will punch me… BUT… our daughter’s name is “Ginger” and she is due early December. Yea she has tried it all too. About the best thing is… remember it is only temporary. And joy is at the end.

    Hope all goes well, Hilde.
