I am supremely excited about having a baby! I cant wait to see his/her little fingers, and toes (and threaten to bite both, once the baby is old enough to understand what the word means.), cant wait to kiss little cheeks, and brush little hairs, and be looked at. There are a million things about having a baby that im looking forward too, and a similar amount that I am certainly NOT looking forward too. But there are also things that I really miss, most of which I didn’t realize I enjoyed so much, lol.
My hubby and I would often share a $5 foot long for lunch on Saturdays, but because of the chance that cold meats contain the bacteria that causes listeria, which could be fatal for the baby, we have had to avoid this deliciously cheap treat. I don’t want to put the baby at risk, no matter how small the chances are!
You guys may remember that before I found out I was pregnant, I was on an extreme weight loss kick, where I was walking/jogging 4 miles a day, 4 days a week. This of course, has had to stop, because I haven’t been feeling non-pukey enough to go to the track, and even now that the nausea had pretty much disappeared, I definitely cant workout at the same level that I did pre-pregnancy. Don’t want to overdo it, but I WILL be getting back to gym really soon, because that will help me avoid gaining unnecessary baby weight, make labor easier, and also make post-baby weight loss go much faster, if my body if still used to exercising!
Facial Cleanser with Acne Treatment-
Pregnancy hormones seem to have declared WW3 on my face lately, as I have noticed a BIG increase in breakouts. I can’t use my normal facial cleanser right now though, because they all contain Salicylic Acid, which is great for acne, but not so great for the baby. Remember, whatever you put ON your body, goes IN your body!
This should be pretty self explanatory I think, lol. My changing body is wreaking havoc on my ability to get comfortable, so it takes a little time to get settled enough to sleep well. Once I get to sleep though, I sleep well, until I have to get up in the middle of the night for the bathroom!
I find myself not feeling like eating. This is really weird feeling to have, lol. I feel sick if I don’t eat at least every two hours, although I think the baby prefers that I eat every hour. And I find myself wanting the strangest things. Last night, I boiled half a bag of corn on the cob (4 pieces) and ate them all myself. I guess it could be worse; I could be pigging out on chocolate and double-cheeseburgers.
There’s more, but I’m tired of thinking about stuff I miss from before I was pregnant. One AMAZING thing that has been happening is that I’ve been feeling my little jellybean or ladybug move! It’s such an exciting feeling, and also very reassuring when I feel it. I cant wait until im further along, so that it happens on a regular basis, and my husband can feel it too. I cant wait to see his reaction the first time he feels the baby kick! Speaking of my hubby, he has started his own blog, Working Towards Eden. Check him out!
