Add whatever veggies you like or have on hand, chopped up of course.
Still living in my yoga pants. If I wanted…needed to wear jeans I’d have to wear them completely unbuttoned and unzipped with a Beband overtop. Bebands are awesome, but I’ve been way more comfortable in the yoga pants. I’m hoping to make it another 2 weeks before having to buy maternity clothes.
At the end of the week I was really sleepy. My body energy had returned but I was just so sleepy. And I’ve started to get migraines. Joy 🙂
On Saturday, I ate a whole tub of California Dip. Which is 1 16 oz. tub of sour cream + 1 dry onion soup/dip packet stirred together. I’ve also been craving a SMELL. The smell of lavender. I’ve bought soap and a car air freshener so far. Have any of you craved the smell of something?
The finger prick, and by prick I mean milking, I couldn’t done without. I thought they were going to prick my finger and be done. Um, they literally milked my ring finger like an utter. I should’ve known when the nurse started with “Hi. How are you? I sure hope you are a good bleeder!”
The OB check up was quick and easy. Heard the heart beat and Nate and the doctor got to share hunting pictures. Men. Can’t take them anywhere!
Of course the ultrasound on Friday during the 1st tri screening.
Getting my nails done this past weekend. I rarely do anything to pamper myself and just thought it was time. Never thought a manicure could be so relaxing. It was hard not to fall asleep in the chair.
Serve over egg noodles, rice, or orzo.
|I was so excited about my noticeable (to me) bump that I had to show Nate. He poked the top of my belly and asked “Whoa, what is that?!” and my response…”Beef Stroganoff.”|
What’s been on my mind and in my dreams? Mostly just looking forward to enjoying the 2nd trimester and my growing bump. I’ve always been self conscious of my stomach, so I am determined to get over that. I used to think all bare-belly bump pictures were disgusting, and some still are. But I am choosing to share my bare-belly bump to get over my self-consciousness.

What’s been on my mind and in my dreams? This week I’ve been wondering how hard it is going to be to come up with 2 full names. Because we are not finding out the gender. Will we have an “Ah HA!” moment, will certain names just grow on us over time, or will we like any at all? I read an interesting piece of advice…if you could rename yourself, any name in the world, what would it be? And if you wouldn’t use the name yourself, don’t use it to name your child 🙂
That’s when Nate filled me in on the previous night’s events. He said I got up to use the bathroom around 3:00am, and on the way I tripped & stubbed my toe on something. I proceeded to yell “Oh Shit!!” and kick whatever it was across the room. Then I continued on my merry way to the potty. I remember getting up, but I do not remember the toe-stubbing incident, but lucky for Nate, there is proof…my toe.
**I’ll start posting “bump” pictures when I’m sure it isn’t just bloat 🙂 Probably next week!
Thank goodness my sister-in-law is also an excellent cook. She makes awesome…well…everything! This is her very own recipe for pimento cheese that can be used for the classic pimento cheese sandwich, a kicked-up grilled cheese, on toast, as a dip, or whatever else you like it with. If you like to make baked cheese bread, sub the mozzarella with this stuff.
How big is baby? The size of a prune!
Highlights: It was great going downtown for the 4th, watching Nate cook pigs on the street, and of course seeing the fireworks. Usually, Nate is back in the kitchen and will drop by a table occasionally to talk with people. So it was entertaining to watch him balance cooking the pigs and entertaining the crowds walking by. I stood for a whole 2 hours, which is the longest I’ve stood, by far, since I’ve been pregnant. As soon as the fireworks were over, we had to go. My back and feet hurt, I felt like I was going to pass out, had to use the bathroom, and was so so tired.
