We are so incredibly happy to be able to start our family! We still have plans to adopt too! The more the merrier!
I think this also explains my lack of posts. I have been eating kinda weird. lol I made it through the first few weeks without getting sick, but I sure was picky with what I ate. Nothing sounds good, so my meal planning went out the window! I never know what I will feel like and if I plan on a meal it never sounds good come dinner time! WEIRD!
I think the strangest thing so far is that childhood comfort foods are what I crave the most. My Mom already made me meatloaf, & spaghetti with meatballs. She has been spoiling me with making exactly what I want each time I go visit.
On my NO list- raw veggies. WHO AM I? I can eat a salad, but certain raw veggies- cucumber, bell peppers, radish- they all give me indigestion. UGH!
On my MUST have list- FRUIT!
I can’t get enough in my mouth! lol
I would also like to re-name the first trimester as CARBTIME! I swear all I wanted was carbs, especially when I was a little queasy.
Now I think what I am most concerned about is weight gain. Well yes, I will be gaining weight. As you can see I already have! lol I think what I am most proud of is the fact that I was able to lose weight to get my body healthier before I did get pregnant. I know with my back issues, any extra weight is not good for me, so I feel good about NOT being 232 lbs starting out.
I did have to quit Weight Watchers, but I love the program so much that I will certainly re-join as soon as I can. It works!
As far as recipe posts from me- I still plan on it! I do not have access to the Recipe Builder on e-tools, so all of my posts will be missing the points plus values on them.
I already have gotten so many wonderful emails & messages full of congratulations & well wishes & I must say they all make me cry with happiness so much! Darn pregnancy hormones! lol
