About Me and About This Blog

I started this blog in 2008, at about the same time I started running seriously again. I wanted to document my progress and keep a running log.

Right now, I am on leave from running and focusing on preparing for a healthy pregnancy. After three miscarriages, I thought I'd document this major part of my life and hopefully be able to provide some information and support to other women going through the same ordeal.

I am a clothing designer and have a small home-based shop. I enjoy making dresses for women who want a makeover or those who are too busy to shop.

C (my husband) and I have two dogs, Ginger (a yellow Labrador) and Scout (a Beagle) whom we adore to bits and who occasionally get featured on this blog.

I love coffee, fashion, music, good films, books, notebooks and chips.

P.S. Since I am quite determined to have a healthy pregnancy and want to give my baby the best start in life, I have quit coffee (well at least the caffeinated kind) and have cut down tremendously on anything that has caffeine. What love can do.

P.P.S. If you want to ask me something but are too shy to post a comment, you can email me at makescoffeenervous@gmail.com.

P.P.P.S. Four miscarriages now, no thanks to my immunological issues. Being treated for it and also just recently started a healthier, more organic diet. Praying, claiming and believing this will be the year of the Lord's favor.

UPDATED: Fifth pregnancy was a success and we have been blessed with our dear Rafael Vito. All glory and honor belong to God!

UPDATED AGAIN: Five miscarriages now but still praying for a sibling for Rafa.
