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!
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.
