week 12 day 2

I'm tired. Super tired. I have a lot to get done today, namely making Christmas treats for the families that I work with and I have no energy.

I went to the grocery store this morning to get sweetened condensed milk and tomatoes. Somehow I ended up with 10 cans of tomatoes, sweetened condensed milk, and refried beans, 6 boxes of mac & cheese, bread, bagels, cream cheese, cheese, plastic wrap, parchment paper, oil, corn syrup, and a bunch of other things I can't remember. Oh, I also got cream of wheat. I don't know what it is about pregnancy that makes you crave the weirdest things but wow, I've been craving weird things. Like cream of wheat. One morning on our cruise I was craving it. I tried to get myself to get some eggs or french toast but no. It was grits I was craving. So I had some just barely for lunch. And wow. It was magnificent.

I've been having a very strong aversion to salad for the past 2 months which is unfortunate because it's so healthy. But when we got pregnant, I had strong cravings for it that I ate it basically for 2 days straight and haven't been able to look at it since. This past week we've had to take 2 salads to events and it's just so hard to look at it. Making it is gross. Cleaning the bowl afterwards is even worse.

  1. I know how you feel. I made some Christmas treats this morning. It was exhausting.

    I guess one good thing is now you can go in the grocery store at least instead of before when going into the store made you sick.
