A pregnant girl should never EVER go 8 hours without putting something substantial in her stomach. I'm a shaking, nautious and pissed off mess right now waiting for the food to hit me. Nothing and I do mean NOTHING sounded yummy to me in this entire house. Too much sugar in cereal, didn't want peanut butter again, I wanted nothing to do with sweet food at all. That left me one option. Eggs.
Let me make this real clear. I ate so much eggs and drank so much milk when I was pregnant with the twins. They're such a cheap and easy form of protein and so that's what I ate. I would love to never see any form of an egg ever again (including the ones that produce children)
Well being as that was all I had left, what else is a girl to do? I mean really. I'm starving, and the only healthy viable option staring at me is eggs.
So, eggs it was. I'll admit it wasn't gross. I had some bacon pieces chopped up, and some cheese. Added protein and fat. I had FOUR eggs (only one yolk) yes I said four. I meant four. I was hungry dammit. And two slices of dry whole wheat toast. Could have been worse. I added a glass of milk to it. I added some italian seasoning and it was almost sausage tasting. It was good. I imagined I was eating something yummy and expensive.
Finally the food is sinking in and it's pretty good. I might be going to bed soon if M doesn't mind staying up with our little princess who, as usual, has decided that she doesn't want to go back to bed.
Again mental note.. do NOT wait that long to eat again.
wow. Between board changes and me just having nothing interesting to say I went a bit between posts.
Right now my world consists of trying to sleep, Papaya Enzyme tablets and food and gas.
SO much gas. I've been whining because I've had the most terrible cramping and I keep thinking that it's something to worry about. Then 10 minutes after I'll start having a gas spell. Sigh. Being pregnant is so glamorous.
I told Monty today that he was going to be a big brother again. He SAID he was excited but.. he didn't seem to be. He wasn't upset either I think I was just expecting a bigger reaction.
Work tomorrow, which always exhausts me. I have to be on my feet all day, and chipper.. and for some reason my kids sleep like crap the nights I have to work. I don't know how I did this before, mind you I slept a LOT more.
Sleep.. that's my hot topic right now. I don't want to hear about anybody else's sleep woes. Sigh. Oh sweet sleep. I'm off to do that now. Wish me 6 hours. Please?
I find it amazing how little I can have to say about something so amazing. I have nothing to report. Nothing major is happening, my body is growing and I have yet to see my midwife. My life just continues.
I'm working, trying to get my business back, and raising my kids. My big boy is in school half a day and my little ones can't be left alone for long any more, and are never in the same place for long when you put them on the floor.
I feel great, I'm not so sick. I gag on occasion but it's nothing I can't handle.
I feel SO guilty for not appreciating and loving every moment of my children and my child to be. I am so lucky to have three healthy children and one coming. I've had my share of hardships with babies but it seems I'm just fine now.
I've had such a tough few days. On one hand, I'm able to appreciate my kids more, but on the other I feel so helpless. There are people around me I love dearly who aren't able to have this life I have, and while things might be hard I'm really honestly lucky. Pregnancy is hard, and uncomfortable. Especially when you've been pregnant for nearly 3 years solid, but at the end of it all I have something to show for it, with either my own children or one for someone special. What do you say/do for someone who hasn't had my experience? I bet when hearing that I was pregnant, yet again, there were those who were wishing they could give anything to have my "problem".
Life is so random, I just don't understand.
Wow. This has been the strangest, hardest week. I see a lot of tragedy lately. The latest, the glorious and fabulous founder of The Body Shop suddenly passed away recently. Leaving behind this amazing business with such amazing values. I hope with all hope that her legacy can continue because she had such a dream. She was such a great woman in so many ways and I was so excited to meet her next year at conference. I'm sad that I'll never get to see her glory in person and I'm afraid for our business.
Keeping my fingers crossed. I wish all the families around me experiencing their own very personal sorrows all the strength they need.
The world has lost yet another truly amazing and just plain *good* woman
