August 10- The New Normal

     Ok I'm craving a cheeseburger. Like a fast food one. Now that's just weird. Not that I would get one. A. I'd probably get sick, B. it's most likely horse meat and C. I'm pretty sure what it tastes like in my mind is not really what it would taste like in real life. So I'm gonna pick me up some Smart Dogs (tofu hot dogs... Shut up, they are good!) and whole grain buns. The hubs and I are going to cook them over the firepit in the backyard. Even though we're still at the house it makes us feel like we're doing something different. Man do I want a beer though. I'm telling you, someone better smuggle me in a margarita after delivery at the hospital. I keep mentioning to friends but I think they assume I'm kidding. I'm not! I want a Presidente one from Chili's. Only 5 months away.... sigh...

     I'm starting to get used to my body being like this. At first it was really hard to accept. But now that I'm working out all the time again and back to eating right I am feeling better about my protruding belly. Even though I have "dunlap!" I feel like I'm starting to look preggers and not just pudgers. The Hubs randomly points it out now. "You look pregnant!" He's excited about that. Certain positions are starting to get uncomfortable. Like leaning over when I'm sitting down, or putting my knees up, which I never realized how much I do that. Laying on my stomach doesn't feel good anymore. But I'm still feeling good and energetic, which I know has everything to do with exercise and nutrition. I know a lot of girls I talk to on the pregnancy forum I belong to are always so tired. But they don't exercise or eat right. Although I'm eating good foods I don't know whether or not I'm eating the right amount. I should hopefully know more at my next visit with MFM, which is in a week and a half. As time goes on they'll be monitoring me more and the emphasis will start to be on getting the babies bigger. So we'll see what they say. For now I just eat when I'm hungry which is pretty much every two hours. Trying to find ways to get more protein in. And I eat a lot of fruits and veggies. Makes me feel good to know I'm nourishing the kiddos.
