My Crazy Appetite

Breakfast has been a difficult meal for me lately.  Nothing tastes good in the morning!  Brandon and I went to the grocery store Tuesday evening and I bought fruit to make smoothies.  I made a yummy and healthy breakfast drink yesterday and today.  The fruit is giving me a lot of energy in the mornings, and making it easier to have no caffeine.

Yesterday, I ate too much at lunch and felt miserable.  I had to sit in the floor and stretch to feel better.  My belly swells by the end of the day and I look much farther along than I am.  I'm sure a lot of it has to do with the hormones and the crazy amount of food I'm eating (I have nausea but never follow through).  For the first time ever, I'm following a meal schedule!

smoothie 8:30am
snacktime  10:30-11:30am
lunch 12:30-2pm
popsicle time 3:30-4:30pm
dinner 6:30-7:30 pm
evening popsicle 8:00pm

I have not gained any weight so far, and am still averaging around 120-125 lbs.  Brandon said he's ready for me to have a belly.  He talks to my tummy every chance he gets.  It's sweet.

We still refer to our child as Baby Sneakers, but I guess you could say his/her nickname is "The Sneak."  Brandon and I are goofballs so this fits us well.

Since our scare on Monday evening, everything has been calm.  My spotting has stopped.  I still have cramps here and there, but my uterus is growing for "The Sneak."  We are still taking each day one at a time and trying to enjoy the little moments.


  1. Love that name!! Glad you are feeling good and there has been no more scares!!

  2. So glad things are going well. I found peace in my early days of pregnancy by constantly thanking God for every moment, every day that I continued to experiance pregnancy! Blessings to all three of you!

  3. Hoping that your pregnancy progresses without incident.

  4. Happy ICLW and congratulations! Wishing you smooth sailings!

  5. Haha I don't have a crazy appetite but I have found that when I am hungry boy am I hungry and I need to eat immediately!!! Yay for pregnancy symptoms :)

  6. Yikes! I'm SO FAR behind on my blog reading / commenting from having my FET last week but I promise to make it up to you today by catching up on your blog and leaving you lots of love through my comments. :)

    Those smoothies sound really yummy. I'm glad you've found a routine with your meals that helps with the nausea. And what a sweet story about B talking to Baby Sneakers any chance he gets. I can't wait for my hubby to be able to do that.


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate your comments and support on our journey.

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
