What can I say, this pregnancy is kicking my butt in the sleep department!
When I thought not being able to sleep-in on weekends was my biggest problem, adding multiple potty breaks to the middle of the night coupled with the inability to get out of bed with ease makes for quite an entertaining sequence of events – show times occur every two hours, if you’re interested. I don’t think Cirque will be calling anytime soon.
I was really hoping that I would have been able to document more of this pregnancy. I had great plans to take pictures of every purchase, what I was wearing, how big I was growing on a weekly basis – it was going to be amazing, and hopefully set off my blogging career… Pregnancy had different plans.
Over the past two months I have been lucky to be making it through most days at work, and even then I wonder what I do all day as this so called “baby-brain” is causing me memory loss… or it’s the focus on staying awake that takes up so much space there is no room for the brain to do anything else. Needless to say, nothing gets done Monday to Friday from 6pm – 6am the next day. It’s all on the weekend (which leaves no time to update everyone).
One thing pregnancy did change in me was my craving for salty foods. A bag of chips and a bottle of wine used to be a great night. Since little ms. has come into the picture I think half of our food bill has been on sugar! It started off with random trips to Bulk Barn (conveniently located across the st.) then escalated to juice and lots of it, then to popsicles (artisaned by ChefE himself), to pudding cups, cookies, any type of chocolate, more bulk barn and can’t forget to add ICE CREAM – 2L a week sounds about right, that’s without sharing. Scared for my GD test, you betcha! As I heard all the horror stories of how gross the juice for the test was I was worried my nausea just might come back.
On a Saturday morning, after fasting for 2 hours it was time. The nurse pulled the orange drink from the fridge and told me to drink it within 5 min – timer was set. Gulping it down seemed like the right thing to do, just get it over with…. the problem with that, I didn’t want it to end. It was sooo good. I wanted more. If that’s not a sweet craving I don’t know what is. Fortunately I passed, unfortunately my indulgences continued.
Currently, I am at 33 weeks and weighing an additional 37 pds – with no regrets. #happypregnancy
