I seem to be having all these odd cravings lately; maybe being pregnant has something to do with it. HHHhhmmmm, maybe. Yes, it’s official people, we’re having a BABY!!!! Sometime in the middle of July, we will have our own little Jessichad, or Chadica, and we’re so excited.
Luckily, I’m getting past the nausea stage, little by little. It has been stinkin’ torture feeling nauseated ALL DAY LONG, and having your throat burn, and being hungry, while everything in the kitchen looks disgusting. Finally my appetite is starting to return, and I can start eating like a normal human again, who has normal taste buds. Yeah, morning sickness is a stinkin’ myth people!!! Try ALL DAY SICKNESS…..morning? That’s a luxury!!!! Morning only? PUH!!!
Over the past month I’ve craved, pickles, raw veggies, Little Caesars $5 pizza w/o the cheese (yum), anything citrus, (including Tostito’s, Hint of Lime chips…yum!) tons of milk, toast, mac and cheese (easy-mac was kinda a lifesaver for a few weeks….the easiest meal ever, that I actually liked), granny smith apples, manzanilla olives, and light popcorn…..yeah, not the healthiest bunch, but it’s better to eat something, than nothing. And BTW, I don’t crave pickles and ice cream…..together anyway. That still sounds disgusting. Even the picture on this post is pretty gag-a-rific. Yeah, I can’t look at it anymore……GROSS….EEEWWW…..BLECK!!!!
Meat, mostly chicken and beef, anything fishy, and surprisingly most chocolate things, completely gross me out. Well, those chicken nuggets that have been on the McDonald’s commercials lately do look good.
“When I dip, you dip, we dip.” Anyone remember that corny hip-hop song? Well, I had a whole night dedicated to it. Cravings and food aversions were raging. All I wanted were raw fruits and veggies, and bread. So, I had “dipping” night. I dipped veggies in dressing, apples in caramel (just a little), and planned on dipping baguette pieces in oil and balsamic vinegar, but had toast instead. Yes, I danced a LITTLE hip-hop, and then Chad brought home cookie dough, and I dipped cookies in milk. What a lovely evening. Luckily, Chad wasn’t home, so he didn’t have to eat my weird dinner.
Also, I turn into a prune every night. Nice and wrinkly……MMMMmmmmmm. I LOVE THE BATHTUB. Get me in the bath!!! Right after work, I hit the tub. And our lovely water heater only has enough hot water to fill the tub half full!!!! What?????!!!! LAME!!!! ‘Course, it’s probably good, cuz it’s impossible for me to get overheated.So, that’s part of my journey so far. Chad has been wonderful, and so has all my family. Thank you so much for making things easy on me! I am seriously beyond thankful!!!
