Day in the Life
Hey guys! Popping back in for my second post of the day.
Our Fourth of July was pretty low key. We both took the day off work. I was feeling pretty weepy, emotional and tired. SO TIRED. And out of breath. A lot of times I don’t feel like my belly has “popped” yet, but I definitely feel like it’s getting harder to move around. I’ll be doing a pregnancy update soon, so stay tuned for that if you enjoy those.
I started the day by making us crepes for breakfast and a decaf vanilla latte. This Martha Stewart recipe is what I’ve been using to make our crepes for the past year!
Topped with nutella and banana before I folded it up.
After breakfast I went and moved my body at the gym. I was so tired and nauseous when I walked into the gym. I felt a million times less nauseous and tired when I left. Success.
For lunch I made some tacos with interesting toppings…refried beans & cottage cheese. With a peach and lemonade on the side. I haven’t had an excellent peach yet this year. They’ve all been meh. Maybe next week!
In the afternoon we went and saw Despicable Me 3. I had preordered the tickets and when we got to the theater they told us we were at the wrong theater. They switched the tickets for us (since it was the same company) and it was all fine. I still cried. We don’t go see movies often (maybe twice a year) and I was really looking forward to it and I just wanted it to go smoothly.
Andrew got the snacks and I went and cried.
After the movie I was feeling less overwhelmed and less exhausted.
I came home and had a snack…
+ took a 2 hour nap with Maggie. Our guest bedroom is getting good use with all the naps I’ve been taking.
For dinner I made us chicken topped with mozzarella + avocado + tomato + balsamic. Served with gnocchi and broccoli.
I was nauseous for every bite. blahhhh. A helpful reframe for the nausea has been reminding myself that being nauseous means hormones are doing what they need to do to keep baby girl growing…that is a good thing. But it’s still hard sometimes.
Late night snack was some Ben & Jerry’s that a pregnant friend had brought over the night before :)
Anyone have any good summer beach read type of books they’d recommend? I’m in the mood to read some fiction! I’m a big fan of the Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series (not a big fan of thriller books bc I get creeped out easily when I’m up at 3 am to pee lol), so anything like that is right up my alley.
I hope my American and non-Americans friends all had a nice July 4th :)
