Who’s there? Olive…Olive Who? Olive you- little baby! Congraduation to my little one who has graduated from an embryo to a fetus! My baby is now a fetus the size of an Olive! I can’t believe I am growing an olive right now. Does that mean I pee Olive oil? The non-virgin variety. I have been following most of my health rules and feeling great this week. I am especially obsessed with drinking water- hence the inappropriate pee reference. I think H20 is the real miracle worker here. I went out to dinner last night and sucked down about six glasses of water and although I was a little shaky upon arrival- I felt pretty good the rest of the night! I even stayed out until almost 10 on a school night! Who knew?
Ok before I go any further I have to comment on a few things that went down last night. My opinions on acceptable pregnant behavior are quite different than my friends. I am by no means insinuating any level of properness is required because I like to be inappropriate with the best of them but I am referencing the matter of health and doctor’s advice. So a couple of my girlfriends had dinner last night and one of the other girls is also pregnant. I was very intrigued by a few of her comments. First was that she told our unmarried/never been pregnant friend that there weren’t any restrictions on what you can eat when you are pregnant. I did not get this memo! She then proceeded to order and drink three cokes. Mind you I wasn’t monitoring her intake but we didn’t have the best waitress and they were kind of lined up in front of me. Let me preface this by saying I am in no way passing judgment on her or her choices because I think people need to do what works for them. As you know what is good for the goose isn’t always good for the gander but I thought these no nos were common knowledge. Isn’t it standard pregnant behavior that certain foods should be avoided? And pop should be limited to one glass a day if any. My doctor spent so much time going over nutrition with us that I thought it was so interesting that someone would think so differently. Do I have the world’s strictest doctor? Am I taking things too literal? I feel like I need to be so careful about my intake and she is so cavalier seemingly polar opposites. I wanted to learn more but wan’’t sure how to approach the subject without coming across as a bitch but I feel like this requires some further investigation. Am I the only wanna be pregnant food nazi?
Further, why am I craving sweets? I have never in my life been one to desire chocolate and yesterday I made my afternoon snack a brownie. What is that all about? I am not even going to start with the crap I ate for dinner last night….how was I to say no to truffle fries? At least had a few shrimps and hummus with veggies to even things out but still not a stellar performance on my part. I totally should have ordered that macadamia nut crusted fish on the menu and not been suckered into the fried oblivion that made it to the table. I only had a few bites of everything so it wasn’t that bad but the fish would have been a much better option. Today is another day! Is anyone doing anything fun for the Fourth of July weekend? We are going to play it pretty low key. Perhaps a family bbq and some R and R and snuggling with my boys. I am also going to clean out my closet and get some items up on ebay as well as get together some returns. I am trying to find my pregnant fashion voice and sort of stumbling here a little bit….what is a girl to do?
