Just wanted to pop in and give you a pregnancy update. I know this is a food blog, but so many of you have been so kind and sent the sweetest emails, so I’d like to try to keep you posted as I go along.
Also, I am one of those people who thinks the world revolves around them when they’re pregnant, and I have my own website. Sooooo….
Last week I hit twelve weeks, the week I’d been anxiously awaiting since I got my positive test 8 weeks earlier. I started feeling a lot better around week 11, and I’m so glad to say that I have a ton more energy and nausea is almost nonexistent. I still get heartburn, but only when I’m on an empty stomach, so I try not to let myself get too hungry. Unfortunately I’m not sleeping well, I wake up to pee a lot and have trouble falling back asleep because my back hurts and I can’t get comfortable.
Hopefully that gets better soon!! If not, I am considering waking my husband up to discuss important life issues and watch reruns of Friends with me. He would love it. *ahem*
I’m steadily growing and am about the size I was at 5 months with Jon David. I measure between 37 1/2 and 38 inches on the largest part of my belly.
Macaroni and Cheese
Sweet Tea (although I try to drink sparingly because of the caffeine)
With Jon David I craved spicy food, and with this baby I find myself wanting comfort food, cheese, and sugary drinks but not a ton of dessert. My doctor appointment isn’t until the 31st, so until then I am praying that all is well and really really hope that he can tell me what we’re having although 15 weeks may be a bit too soon.
Right now I have a feeling that it’s a girl, but I could totally be wrong. When I was pregnant with Jon David I wanted a boy desperately, and now that I got him, I can honestly say I’d be thrilled with either. All I want is a healthy baby who never cries and sleeps through the night.
That isn’t too much to ask for, right?
Not only has it been almost 8 years since my last baby, but my husband and I had decided we were not having anymore. A growing kid and a bit of maturity on our part changed that last Fall — as our priorities changed, we realized that growing our family was more important to us than our freedom. Needless to say, the decision surprised us both, so I can honestly say that I have not even thought about having a baby for a very long time. So….I am totally out of the loop on baby stuff. Big time.
Any suggestions on products that I need or stuff that you couldn’t live without? Please let me know, I need all the help I can get!!
Thank you again for being a part of my family. I love reading your comments and I love that I can share this with you.
Have a very happy Tuesday!!
