No, No, List

Posted by Heather at Friday, January 22, 2010
Pregnant women are supposed to love to eat, to be warmer-natured and gain lots of weight, right? Not so for me!

The thought of chicken makes me ill and you DEFINITELY do NOT like broccoli! Every time I try it (broccoli)- soup, steamed, salad- it doesn't agree with us! Chicken breast, a roasted chicken, makes me sick, but for some reason, I've been fine with Chicken salad. Before you were born, Daddy and I could go through ice cream like it was going out of style. Now, we still have a carton on the back of the freezer from BEFORE Christmas (I think we should probably get rid of that before you make your grand entrance)! Daddy is so sad because I have not craved Chinese AT ALL this whole pregnancy. The smell of General Tso's chicken is enough to send me running for the restroom and wonton soup doesn't quite settle the stomach like it used to. Anything with a red sauce makes me leery so most things Italian are out. So far, there have not been any late-night runs for strange cravings, or searches for brand-specific food cravings.

This drafty old house has been quite chilly at times, this winter. So, I was looking forward to being more warm-blooded- NOT SO!! I'm still just as cold as always but at least I know that you are snug as a bug in a rug inside me.

As for the weight gain, I have to say I'm relieved that it hasn't been too hard to manage my weight while being pregnant. I thought I'd balloon up but so far we've been right on track with weight gain. The doctors actually told me to eat a little more and drink lots more- you sure to require a lot of liquid!
