Now that you know we have another little one along the way, I can be honest and tell you how badly I’ve been eating.
It amuses me that pregnancy books often have photos of beautiful women looking all fresh and glowing whilst nibbling wholegrain sandwiches, salads, fruits and sipping herbal tea in a ladylike fashion. The reality is, of course, that you tend to mope about the house in your PJ pants and your high school jersey whilst stuffing your face full of chips, chocolates, breakfast cereals that are high in sugar (think Crunchy Nuts), Coke, chicken nuggets from the freezer, ice cream and everything and anything that’s high in simple (read: bad-for-you) carbohydrates. And if we’re out, then it’s McDonalds, meat pies, hot chips or chicken wings from the local mall’s chicken shop.
It’s honestly quite embarrassing but when you suffer from nausea from the moment you wake up till the moment you get back into bed at night, there’s really no way around it. Even Rick has learnt to make peace with my shameful pregnancy diet and knows not to argue with me when I SMS him with my request for a hamburger and small fries from McDonalds. The only upside to all this is that I’ve gone off coffee, which means we’re saving at least twenty dollars a week simply by not ordering my quarter-strength lattes.
Thank you to all of you for your wonderful comments and messages. Your love and support have been amazing. I’m so lucky to have such awesome bloggy friends like you guys! Bring on October, I say. I can’t wait to get stuck into this new month…
