Jessica - must be that pregnancy glow. My standard response to unwanted compliments is "Yes, my husband thinks so too." LOL What did you make for dinner? I was soooo hungry today. I forgot to bring my lunch, so some coworkers and I went out for lunch at a soup and salad place, and I had a huge salad and a cup of chili. When we left, I was so full I was a little uncomfortable. But about 2 hours later I was so hungry I literally got up and got my purse to go run through a drive through! Luckily, one of my coworkers (who is totally the Office Mom) saw me and offered me some leftover homemade pot roast, carrots, and potatoes that she had brought in for lunch and didn't eat because we went out. So that's what I'm snacking on....I call it second lunch....
I made parmesan crusted pork and green bean casserole. ... DH said he hated green bean casserole, turns out he had never even eaten it and he tried it and now he'll eat the whole entire casserole dish..LOL We haven't had it in awhile and it's super easy so... Generally I would have made some kind of starch too, like mac and cheese or potatoes, but.. he came and got me. We went out on a DATE to Napa Auto Parts! LMAO. It was nice to get out of the house with him, even if it was only a minute.
Aww. You girls are super sweet!!
Alissa, due date is May 15th, 2013 as of now!
Jessica, I know right? I'm scared to be honest about my first u/s. I am just praying everything is fine with my little bean!
I'm feeling good today ladies.. Other than the usual tiredness and thirst. I've been very thirsty since yesterday. Especially at night. Probably bc I drink less water when I'm at home but I just downed 24 oz in a matter of minutes and I'm good!!
Ohh.. Dinner tonight was leftovers. Love having leftovers hehe.
Jessica - Ooooh, parmesan crusted pork sounds delicious! Are you starting to feel a little bit better now that you are basically 12 weeks? I would NEVER cook anything fancy is I was throwing up multiple times a day; DH would just have to suck it up and tough it out. LOL!
Nidia - Yay, I will totally add you to the EDD list! I totally hear you about thirst! I have been super thirsty this pregnancy too. My theory is that it has something to do with the extra blood our bodies are making, but I don't have any science on my side to back that up! LOL It is totally nice to have leftovers that you can fall back on when you don't feel like cooking. Some weeks on Friday or Saturday night we have "clean out the fridge night" where we just eat a buffet of the last several nights worth of cooking. Depending on what we've had for the week, we come up with some strange combos, but always tasty none the less.
Jina - Where are you lady? Hoping everything is fine and you are just busy.
AFM - I'm so glad it's already Thursday. I am seriously counting down the days until Monday when I have my NT scan. Monday at 10 am! Can't come fast enough as far as I'm concerned!!!
Mmm.. that does sound good Jessica.
Alissa, I know.. how exciting! Can't wait to hear all about your appointment OH and I think I have actually read something about the extra blood and being thirsty! I just can't remember exactly what it said. Pregnancy brain haha.
Jessica, what are you cooking tonight? Hehehe.. we are having Zaxby's.. for those of you that don't know what it is, it's a wings place.. they have chicken fingers, fries, wings, sandwiches, etc. A few weeks ago they were doing "repeat day" where you bought your meail and in a few weeks you could go back and get the same thing you got for free. So my family and I get a free meal! Good thing I got a salad.. I'm trying to eat healthier for sure.
Have you ladies felt very hungry? I don't feel like ravenous but after a couple/few hours I want a snack! I feel sick if I am on an empty stomach!
Nidia - I ALWAYS want to eat. Then I start eating, thinking I'm ravenous and I'm done after a few bites. You'd think I'd have learned that by now, but no.... today I came home, made this huge plate of popcorn chicken and ....mustard(?) and ..ate like three of them. My dogs eyeballed the plate after I finished so I shared then threw the rest away.
Alissa - pfft. I dunno if I feel better or not. Here's the thing - on a work night, I get about 4 1/2 hours of sleep. I feel pukey and gaggy and tired the next day, immediately so I take a Zofran as soon as I roll out of bed (which happens to be the couch right now). BUT, on days I'm off and I can sleep in.. I don't need a Zofran until the afternoon or evening. It looks like it's tied to sleep, but when I wake up (refreshed) from a nap, my stomach usually hurts.... so I really have no idea what's going on. Yesterday was my day off so cooking was no big deal because I felt okay....but today, I don't feel okay. I feel crappy giving him pizza, so I did take out some hamburger. He's got school tonight so maybe I'll feel up to cooking a little later.
AFM, I totally got my feelings hurt today. I'm gonna make a post about it,but the dog is staring at me and ..if he pees on the ground I'm gonna be hot. So I'll be right back.
I'm only 3 months in and I'm about ready to start punching everyone in the face that offers me "advice".
Here's what happened:
Saturday, I bought a bag of hot fries at work. I ate a few, mainly because I wanted something spicy/hot and left the bag at work. I've nibbled on them each day, but haven't really wanted them. Tuesday, a girl at the store I'm working at, came over and said something crappy about the bag of hot fries and baby doesn't need that and blahblahblah. We veered off that subject and started talking about God. I'm not gonna go into that convo on pg.org but, suffice it to say she was stepping on my toes a bit. Today she comes and asks me how I'm doing. I said fine, went to the doctor yesterday. She moves around my desk, grabs the hot fries and throws them in the TRASH. Now, my paychecks are super small because I have a garnishment out on me from when me and my ex were together. I'm driving way out of my way to go to this store and while I'm getting paid mileage, I haven't actually received any of it, so basically my checks are going in my gas tank and that's about it. I don't have money to be throwing food out, especially someone else throwing it out. So it really irked me that she did that. She started in on gaining weight and just because I'm pregnant doesn't mean eat everything in sight and that I don't want to be super fat and etcetc. I was like...look, I'm 20 lbs DOWN from the beginning of the pregnancy because I just can't eat and have been throwing up. If I feel like some hot fries are gonna stay down, I'm gonna attempt to eat them. I told her that bag has been there since Saturday and it still isn't gone and it's just a regular size bag of them. I'm a big girl, I get that, but don't come getting up in my face about gaining weight during pregnancy and throwing my stuff away. UGH.
OH man.. I would have been mad too girl! Who is she to say anything about you or what you should do? People these days! They need to look at themselves and their lives! I don't understand people like that. Oh well, just don't pay attention to her. Don't let her get to you.. just tell her it's your business and you'd appreciate it if she stayed out of it!
Alissa, yay! Your first stranger comment! I can't wait until your NT scan! OMGosh, I'm going to be stalking all morning!
Jessica, How awesome about your appointment!!! I'm so happy for you!!! Lol...I'm sorry the men keep hitting on you. I'd just be flattered and try ignore them. I'm sure it gets kinda creepy after a while though.
Holy crap! I would have slapped that witch silly. Ugh! She sounds....lovely. NOT! I really hope you get to go back to your regular store asap!
Nidia, mmmm....wings! How cool that you guys scored a free meal! I love Pluckers wings but I haven't had them in forever. You're making me want to go get some! I was very hungry in the first trimester because I couldn't keep anything down. The beginning of second trimester I went crazy and ate everything in sight! Now, I can't seem to eat very much at all. I'm already running out of room. I can only eat an english muffin for breakfast and I'm so uncomfortably full until almost dinner time. It's really weird!
AFM, not much going on here. I've just been exhausted. I seem to have lost my energy a few days ago and it's not coming back. I've just been reading and taking it easy. I finally got around to reading The Girl Next Door by Jack Ketchum. The book was pretty disturbing but I could not put it down. I read it from cover to cover in one night. Now I'm trying to decide if I want to read UnWholly which is a sequel to Unwind by Neal Schusterman or Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill.
I have Easy Beefy Mexican Stew with Avocado in the crock pot. I have dinner taken care of but my house is starting to get a little messy and it's driving me freaking crazy. I swear...I think I'm going to hire someone to come clean my house. Are you guys having a hard time keeping up with your house chores?
Jina, glad you're doing good. I get paranoid when I don't hear from you and Alissa daily LOL. I'm supposed to go back to my store next week, but they said that last week too, so... we'll see. They have a relief receiver that is supposed to float to different stores and he was supposed to be there this week, ...I'm not sure where he went, but maybe he'll be there next week. I can feel ya on the food thing. I'm so HUNGRY all the time, but every time I eat I feel so yucky. So I tend to eat like two bites then push it away. I can't wait to eat everything in sight! LOL But feeling uncomfortable after an English Muffin doesn't sound fun. I LOVE to read. I'm a big Stephen King fan and Dean Koontz...and I love the Harry Potter series . Everyone has gotten into the Fifty Shades books but I have no desire to read them. I just finished the new Dean Koontz book called 77 Shadow Street. It seems to me that all horror/suspense books are starting to have really stupid endings.
Nidia - I told DH what happened and he's like, "I'm coming up there to talk to this #&$&#"...haha.
