Hello from the A side of things. It's been a bit but it’s not for lack of wanting to post, it's due to lack of time. I forgot how much being pregnant WIPES you clean of all energy. I work full time, am a mom to a 3.5yo and I run our home - I'm finding that sometimes its A LOT to deal with and am having mini break downs and freak-out sessions. Good times. I am learning to be OK with saying no or letting my husband go to the grocery store for our family (and even do the laundry, baby steps - no pun intended).
The other thing I am getting used to is eating 24/7. I have gone 3 years and have been really good (for the most part). Even when I slip during the week I can typically get back on track. Now, not so much. If I don’t eat, I feel like I am going to puke. Having to work all day I cannot afford to be sick or down and out, even for an hour....and so I eat. And eat and eat and eat. Hence the creation of "the peanut butter diaries" - my new obsession is peanut butter. Specifically peanut butter with butter and peanut butter with bananas on toast - just finished one in fact. I can eat spoons of the glorious peanut paste and never fill up. It's looking like baby #2 will have my passion for food, great.
I will admit I am trying very hard to make "smart" decisions. I will grab an apple or a banana before I grab chips, that’s a big deal for me. I did eat more of the Trader Joes soy ice cream (well, being honest I finished the carton...) but I am trying to make that a rare occurrence. 7 weeks and 3 days...tick tock goes the pregnancy clock. Wish me luck and strength!
