Are we getting sick of hearing about my every-day-is-the-same morning sickness? Because I’m certainly sick of talking about it. Nothing much new to report. Still feel pretty rotten after 12pm. Still can’t stand the smell of onions and garlic. Still have no desire to cook anything. Still eating an obnoxious amount of cereal. Still boycotting dinner.
One new thing (that doesn’t ever make it into the photos) is that I’m finally back to drinking water regularly! For the past few months, drinking water has been pretty much an insta-catalyst for throwing up for me. So I had to be really careful to only drink some on a full stomach or just sip it with meals. Even though I tried to make up for it with watery foods (watermelon, cucumbers, etc.) and other drinks (juices, teas, etc.), I definitely was dehydrated. But as of this week, water hasn’t been causing me any issues. And I am making up for lost time! I’m drinking a good 12-16 cups a day. It also helps that the water coming out of our tap is ice cold—which I suppose is probably the only benefit of the polar vortex.
Anyways, my apologies for the painfully boring eats. Maybe next week I’ll have Craig photograph his eats for the day. They’re so much more entertaining than mine!
I actually did switch it up a bit for breakfast and had frozen waffles! Considering I’ve been plowing through 3-4 boxes of cereal a week, I figured I should try reducing my two-bowls a day habit down to one. And frozen waffles are just as easy in the morning when my belly is screaming loudly for FOOOOOOOD. Alongside, I had half a grapefruit (I’ve been way obsessed with grapefruit lately) and a vanilla yogurt. We found these little glass single-serving yogurts and I’m in love with them! They’re local, organic and actually pretty affordable (especially considering you get to keep a cute glass jar). I also had a mug of decaf coffee with coconut oil, maple syrup and a splash of cream.
Morning snack plate, which I try to load up with healthy options because I knew everything was going to go downhill after lunch. Carrot sticks, dates with peanut butter, an incredibly delicious pear, a few grapes and some cheddar cheese cubes. Plus some sparkling water with lime on the side. Baby J and I are big sparkling water fans.
Lunch was straight out of an eight-year-old’s lunchbox—tomato soup with Goldfish, grilled cheese and a Pepsi. Mexican Coke has been my caffeinated beverage of choice during pregnancy (it’s the only thing that knocks out the hormonal migraines I get), but the store was out, and I landed on this Pepsi Throwback in a glass bottle. It did the trick and stopped a headache in its tracks (but I’m still a Coke girl).
As predicted, I started to feel rough after lunch. Not much sounded good. A snack of kettle chips and rainbow sherbet, because: pregnant.
Go figure, dinner was a big ole bowl of cereal. This one was half honey nut O’s and half chocolate O’s. Topped with blueberries and bananas. A little bit later, I dug into this Chobani Flip for a nightcap. I really love all the Chobani Flip flavors (but this one is definitely my favorite).
