Cat Naps

I seriously have been taking 2-3 naps every single day for a few weeks now, for around 2-4 hours each some days more!  How can I resist the temptation when I walk by the bedroom and see this tho?!

Lazy kitties!

Truly don't recall being sooooo gosh darn tired with my last pregnancy but yea, I was a teenager with a hell of a lot more spunk back then. Just waiting for this so called "Preg-nergy" to kick in....

(See kids I can make up words to but the difference is mine make sense.)

Pregnancy Cravings - Pickles & Sandwiches

Since I was a wee one the amazing pickle was always my food of choice. Only dill or kosher ones tho, no sweet, sour or butter crappy mc-crap flavors. Why ruin the awesome flavor of a pickle if you don't need to, that's just pure crazyness! 

Normally a dill of any kind would tickle my pickle taste buds but this year I've found that the cold Claussen mini kosher dill ones, only found in the fridge section by the deli meats, are definitely my favorites! A little spendy for pickles but once you try them you may never buy another kind. As a back up I also buy the dill hamburger slices to put on my sandwiches. Cutting up a Claussen for each sandwich gets way expensive since I bombard my food with tons of pickles so I have to compromise...yet have more pickles in the fridge as well, yeaaaaaa!

Totally on a HUGE sandwich kick lately, an abnormal one I'd say. After I had been eating a turkey sandwich every single day since March I now find out I shouldn't be eating deli meat when pregnant?! Whaaaaa. Well, oops. Guess I didn't realize the deli meat needed to be heated up but heck. Too late now. 

Does this mean good bye Subway & Jimmy Johns
Probably not....

Now I'm totally into egg sandwiches with cheese and sometimes some fried salami slices. Hey, I heated up the meat so it's gotta be legit huh? Of course some healthy stuff like greek yogurt and bananas, grapes or apples are eaten with these sandwiches but my love for bread with yummy-ness inside is stronger then ever.

Now this is WINNING Mr. Charlie Sheen....

Morning Sickness Blues

Hello world! 

 It's been awhile since my last post, been having some crummy morning sickness making me very lazy and crabby at times. My body has become super picky about what it wants me to eat and what it absolutely forbids me to eat. Of course everything I love it hates. Big bummer for the local Mexican restaurants lol! Sandwiches, fruits, some veggies & Tutti Frutti are luckily the main foods I can eat these days without feeling like I live in a bathroom. Oh, and pickles make me belly happy still, thank my goddess!!!

 Things could be worse I suppose and I've actually lost some fat off my flabby pre-pregnant areas so heck! Of course I give in to a chicken chalupa here and there and just deal with the horrid aftermath of my poor decision but it's sooo worth it, I love me a damn chalupa and it provides a decent amount of protein & iron for my diet but yea, not healthy! Yes, Taco Bell is the provider....sorry, so nom nom nommy....

 Actually been having many wicked bouts of morning sickness (or should I say 22/7 sickness, I'll give it 2hrs off everyday) since March but can honestly say I've only experienced a little queezyness here and there with my first pregnancy 20 years ago. I also was at the ripe age of 16 and in way better shape then now so maybe it's my destiny to experience this wonderful pregnancy side effect to the fullest this time around, just to be fair to other Mothers who have and are currently going through the same Morning Sickness Blues of course. 

But whyyyy???

 My mans 33rd Birthday is today and guess what?! I feel icky-poo :(
His wonderful parents who still have no idea we are with child are taking him out to eat at Red Lobster, of course I stayed home with a "stomach bug" as told to the parents lol. Almost correct, technically a "Stomach Bundle" but shhhhhhhh, it's still a secret! (Long story about why we haven't broke the news yet. You'll have to wait for an upcoming blog post.) Was looking forward to eating the grilled salmon there, so darn tootin' good and I rarely get to eat salmon so it was a major let down on my bodies behalf. Can't believe they have a recipe on their website for it, I'll have to try & whip it up at home, or make my man give it a whirl he does cook better then me and yes I did just write that!

To sum it up, this is what it's like these days, eating foods & not knowing how I'll feel from that, drinking water like crazy, peeing - I kid you not - almost every 20 minutes, sleeping, not sleeping & watching Everwood. Yea ~ don't laugh it rocks & I'm definitely in love with Dr. Andy Brown

Oh the joys!
