October =blah-ctober.


Sunday, October 28, 2012

This hasn't been a good month. Well...not food wise anyway.

I found out shortly after my centennial ride that I'm pregnant (yay!) but this pregnancy is 100% different than my first. I'm NEVER hungry. With Max I was hungry ALL THE TIME and everything was good and I ate it all. Not necessarily a good thing. But now I'm NEVER hungry and only eat because if I don't I feel really sick. But that makes it hard to eat the things I'm supposed to eat. I don't feel like cooking at all. And the only things that I can think of to eat that don't make me feel ill are restaurant foods. 99% chinese. Chinese is good for me, I eat mostly steamed chicken and broccoli. I can do without rice. I like the egg rolls and crab rangoon but I can limit those. So Chinese is a good choice for me. Except on the pocketbook! It gets expensive!!! Chicken strips usually sound good to me too. And I haven't eaten those in years. But they sound good. And pizza. Real pizza - not the paleo pizza I usually love. The thought of paleo pizza makes me feel ill. The thought of cooking makes me feel sick most days. It's so weird.

I'm also cold all the time. With Max I was hot all the time and now HE's hot all the time. And hungry. So this kid is never going to eat and is always going to be cold? Weird.

So yea. Also, the last time I rode that trail I found out a few days later I was pregnant. I don't think I should go on that trail anymore.

This might explain some of those sugar cravings that you experienced back in September! Right?!?
Just keep listening to your body and feed it what you can right now. I have 3 kids and all 3 of my pregnancies were different. Weird but normal.

    CONGRATS!!! I know how excited you must be. Maybe all these extreme differences mean this little bean will be wearing pink instead of blue?!? Maybe maybe not :) My two were very different and are a boy and a girl but I know lots of others who had total opposite pregnancies and they were same sex but it is so fun to speculate :) You did an amazing job getting your body ready to carry this little one I'm so proud of you. You should be so proud of yourself!!

AND..... How on earth can that announcement come with a title of blah-ctober I'm just saying.

    Yayyyy congrats!!! How old is Max now? It's so weird how every pregnancy is so different. I have a friend who just had a baby and she had to be vegan for her whole pregnancy. Anything with animal products at all made her so ill. I am so happy for you guys! I bet Max will be a great big brother. Are you gonna keep running thru your pregnancy?

Thanks for your blog and the info on what is happening with you.

It is not unusual that each pregnancy and how it all goes is each very different from all others.

You are experiencing and learning this pregnancy.

Also your daily life and habits have no doubt changed some.

Best to you, your pregnancy and your babe.
