Hey friends!! Happy Thursday! Woah… it has been a week already! How are you all? How is your week going? I’m just chugging along over here ready for another relaxing weekend!
I have lots of really random updates for you today so here we go.
I read two more of Colleen Hoover’s books that were both really good. Confess was wonderful and Maybe Not is just a short little easy read that you should read BEFORE Maybe Someday. Please send in book recs before I read all million of hers. LOL.
Let’s back up to last Friday. You guys… it was a doozy. I started not feeling well after dinner on Friday night, but just chalked it up to general nausea/pregnancy indigestion. Until 10pm hit and I couldn’t stop throwing up until 7am (TMI, I know!). UGH!! It was sooo awful. I was worried it could be the start of another bowel blockage, but thankfully after an IV and some anti-nausea meds on Saturday I was back to feeling brand new and have felt fine ever since.
I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday and told my doctor who didn’t seem to be too concerned and agreed that it was probably a stomach bug (ruled out food poisoning because we cooked at home and my husband was fine). Who knows, but I am just glad I am feeling better. Speaking of the doctor, today marks 28 weeks and I had my glucose test yesterday to test for gestational diabetes. I will find out later today or tomorrow. Also, I thought the glucose drink was good. LOL. Everyone always complains about how bad it is, but I just thought it tasted like sprite and had no problem downing it. I did have a headache yesterday, which I attribute to all the extra sugar.
The most common pregnancy question I get is am I having any weird cravings? And my answer is still no. I still crave a good cold diet coke with lemon, but that is about it. I will say that another aversion I am having is chili powder. Before I was pregnant, I put chili powder on everything… salmon, eggs, etc. But now, it’s not that I just don’t like it… it tastes completely different to me. My husband put it on salmon a week or two ago and I was like WHAT DID YOU PUT ON THIS?!?! He said chili powder. I was like ARE YOU SURE?!?!? LOL. It tastes soo weird/off to me right now.
Did you all do a bracket for March Madness? I am not one to normally join in, but I did this year and I ended up winning. Maybe I should play more often. 😉
Still keeping up with my exercising and daily walks while I can! I have to say I still don’t really have much to complain about with pregnancy and for that, I am grateful!! Still feeling really good. Fingers crossed it stays that way now that I am entering the 3rd trimester!!
I’ll leave yall with a few cute pics of my crazy pups. :). These are the rare occasions they are sitting on/by my husband and not me. 🙂
Tito has absolutely no awareness of my bump and frequently thinks the bump makes a great pillow. 🙂
The baby has been moving A LOT the last week, which is super fun!! We have been busy getting the nursery together (I’ll show once we finally have it all together, which will probably be the day before the baby arrives) and trying to find a pediatrician (we meet one for an interview next week). Lots going on over here, but we have minimal plans for the weekend, which will be nice. What is going on in your world?? Tell me some fun things you have planned!! I hope you have a great rest of your week and a great weekend!!
