I just got back from a serious blogging vacation! Hopefully I can get back into the groove again, but let me assure you, blogging wasn’t the only thing suffering in the past few months. Meal planning was non-existant, eating out and going over budget was a given, and a general tolerance for clutter reigned from March until now – almost the end of June! What’s the deal? We’re pregnant with baby girl #2!!!
20 weeks pregnant and feeling fine! LOVE 2nd trimester!
I’m partially kicking myself over a missed opportunity to blog during the first trimester (after all, I meant for this to be a new mommy blog), but the pregnant me doesn’t care. I’m just happy to be in 2nd trimester and over the misery that was all-day morning sickness! Blah. I really don’t think it was as bad the first time around. All my eating well plans went right out the window and I survived thanks to saltines, chicken noodle soup, and ginger ale. My poor hubby was a life saver during this time and was very supportive, despite my perpetually tired, cranky, upset-stomach self.
Now I feel great, albeit a little tired, and am ready to get back to normal!
Here’s what’s on the menu the rest of the week:
- Fish tacos – cole slaw with chopped tomatoes, gf baked fish sticks, black beans w/salsa, gf brown rice wraps
- Crockpot chicken and cornbread dressing (using Pamela’s gf cornbread mix and organic condensed chicken soup), with green beans and simple salad – Hey, I’m easing back into this… I haven’t said anything about “paleo” yet, have I?
- Date night! Aiken Brewery thanks to a gift certificate from a friend! I am not a beer lover even when not pregnant, but now that my meat aversion is calming down, I’m sure I can find something tasty.
- Leftovers and/or egg salad sandwiches – I had a major egg aversion all first trimester. Thank heavens that’s over with! Bring ‘em on!
