Catch up

having probs with wordpress, bed’s calling back to edit tomo (5/7)



June 5, 2011

So I briefly mentioned my food needs during the first stages of pregnancy, in these later stages of pregnancy, keeping up with the food needs of my body has been strangely difficult. I love my food, but eating every few hours takes some inventiveness. I’ve never eaten so much fruit, more of a veg person, but needs must (also the reason I went back to drinking coffee-after the nausea weeks that is!) Here’s what I eat (drink water throughout)

Breakfast: Glass of OJ, Museli/blueberry wheats with strawberries/raspberries, 1 scoops worth of cafetiere coffee

Snack: Bread (*home made sour dough)/toast + choc spread (the nutty sort!)/Yoghurt + fruit/museli bar + pineapple/other fruit

Lunch: 2 slices of bread* with hummous + cheese/ham + cucucumber/avo + pink lady apple

Snack: sea above

Tea: 2 biscuits + cup of tea

Supper: main meal (tonight a cheats supper of sausage (love waitrose’s foot long packs!) chips, mediterranean veg, green beans in garlic)

Snack: not pineapple since I realised its a diuretic but dark choc works well at this time of night as does a mug of hot choc/see above.

If I miss the evening snack for example I wake at 5 am ravenous/sick and if I miss the mid morning snack, I feel quite waffy. So far all my weight is on my bump though, so no complaints, just weird having to eat so much + regularly.


Still here

Between bank holiday catching up with family, antenatal appointments and classes, choir and DIY I’ve been chasing my proverbial tail in the energy stakes.

Baby continues to grow well, no new bump pics though. I’ve got really sore thighs when I turn over in bed, which has resulted in me sleeping with 6 pilllows strategically placed at the mo. Doing some research today it would appear to be SPD but not badly.

We now have a new bathroom, carpets fitted in the bedrooms upstairs and a downstairs WC almost finished. Since the carpets, we’ve put together the “nursery” (we plan on cosleeping, but having somewhere safe to put baby while I jump in the shower and to store its stuff is needed). The carseat and cloth nappies have arrived as have some gorgeous parcels from m’ mum incl a changing mat and a beautifully wrapped parcel. (the little nappy on the gift tag!!)

best thing to arrive in the post recently tho’ has been an early (big) birthday present. A little yellow netbook. Balancing my massive heavy laptop on my hip (lying on my back is no longer an option) was getting v difficult and carrying upstairs has been impossible (even pre pregnancy)

exciting creative photography, I know…
