The more and more pregnant I become, the more and more I get hungry and need food immediately. Being 18 weeks pregnant isn’t helping because I’m currently starving and there’s only so much snacking that a person can do!
I love that I traded nausea, migraines, and throwing up in the first trimester for hunger in the second trimester. I really am loving food right now and I can’t get enough of it sometimes.
You know that I haven’t dared to step on the scale because, really, that would be stupid. I’m pregnant and supposed to gain weight. I just don’t want to go to the OB on March 4 and have the scale move up 10 pounds in 4 weeks. (I remember watching an episode of Tori and Dean and this happened to her at her appointment. She blamed it on Dean bringing her rocky road ice cream every night.)
That might make me think twice about eating Taco Bell. Until then though, I will continue to give in to my pregnancy cravings because when else do you have the “excuse” to do that?!
Tarzan just left to run an errand and then he is bringing me home Taco Bell. I know, I know, gross… but oh how it has been sounding just lovely to me lately. I sure hope he comes home soon. Of course there is nothing wrong with my car or my legs, but I just don’t feel like getting dressed yet. Even to go through the drive-thru.
Oh yes, call me lazy, but I’m in my pj’s still. So glad that I work from home and don’t have to get dressed up daily. Not sure that I would make it.
It’s funny how pregnancy brings out the need for certain foods that you never gave a sh!t about before. Taco Bell was always just eh to me, but now I NEED IT. The baby needs it. Yeah, right.
