The pregnancy so far has been relatively uneventful...which is a good thing. Well, let me rephrase that. Not completely uneventful, but nothing bad has been going on.
My waistline has started expanding, I'm hungry all the time, and I am getting up at least once (if not twice) a night to pee. My doctor says that's a good thing because it means I am staying hydrated. It feels like my body is punishing me for trying to be healthy. Oh well. Speaking of being healthy...
Eating healthy is EX-PEN-SIVE. Every time I go to Wegman's I spend at least $80. Between all the fruits, vegetables, and dairy I am supposed to consume, along with all the whole grains...it adds up quickly. There are a lot of convenience foods I am supposed to skip (like macaroni and cheese - how I miss thee) and meats and veg are supposed to be all organic. Truth be told, I skip the organic on a lot of stuff, but not on the meat. I can always wash the fruits and vegetables really really well, but you can't wash the hormones out of a chicken breast (gross).
Doing my best to eat healthy. The staples of my diet are water, Vietnamese Food, Chobani yogurt packed with fruit, home made trail mix and low-fat string cheese. But sometimes this girl just wants a handful of Cheetos, or half a dozen chocolate chip cookies. Below is a picture of my water cup that follows me everywhere and is the reason I have to get up multiple times at night to pee. Friend or foe? You decide.
|Friend or foe?|
|Tiny, tiny baby! Just under 1 inch at this time. Don't laugh at my tail! You had one when you were this small, too.|
Boy or girl? Don't know yet...but I have tried a few tests to figure it out. I can't wait to find out, hopefully they'll tell me next week.
