Somehow, my appetite has found me. I have been ravenous for 1.5 weeks. I want to eat constantly. I don’t necessarily prefer sweets or savories, I just want them both and in large quantities. I haven’t gained much weight so far, but this week may do me in. Hand me another empanada. I'm not sure if this is coincidence, but I started daily exercises 1.5 weeks ago as well. However, the amount I am burning up in yoga cannot possibly equal the calories in a spicy chicken combo. Want to go out for quiche?

It is an incredible negative 3 degrees here. I want to go into a hot tub and not come out. I want to float weightless in the middle of bubbles. I am not allowed into a hot tub. I don’t like when “They” decide what I should and shouldn’t do. You “shouldn’t” go into the “hot tub” in case you “boil the baby.” They are such blowhards; they cramp my style.

As soon as I have this baby I’m into a hot tub for hours. Well, not as soon as, I’ll give it a little bit of time. There will be oysters and sushi for sure, maybe even a cold cut with its possible listeria contamination. I will also eat right before I go to bed and not take an antacid! Then I’ll go to sleep on my stomach and it shall be glorious!

I hear ya! I don't dig all the restrictions. "What! You can't eat that hotdog!" "You can't go in the hottub!" "You can't raise your heartrate past 140!" Gimme a break. Women gave birth on floating log in a freezing river.

more caffeine, please said...

I loved this post because just last night I was declaring to 18 what I will be doing on/after February 7th:

Ordering from the take-out menu at Shashimi so he can bring sushi to the hospital for the post-delivery dinner.

Wearing one of two new non-maternity lounge outfits home to my bed where I will sleep on my stomach and refuse to get out of bed to pee five times. (He reminded me how often CJ nursed, but I'm convinced it's better than numerous ups and downs to the bathroom...)

Not throwing up anymore (now it's due to having no room in my abdomen for anything I eat. As soon as I take the last bite of anything it comes back up.

Taking a soak in my new master soaker tub that has taunted me since we bought this house and I haven't been able to use it.

Party. On. Yes, it shall be glorious!

When are you due again?

My sister lived in DQ blizzards when she was pregnant. When Jersey was born, she had such chubby little cheeks. We'd tell her she had ice cream cheeks. :)

It SHALL be glorious to sleep on my stomach again. I have to keep chanting to myself, "Three more weeks...three more weeks".

And I know I'm late, but I just read your last post about childbirth and I agreed with everything you said. I'm hoping to go pain-med free as well. We can do it!

Yay for stomach sleeping!

Umm...did you mention homemade caramel corn over at less tummy, more yummy? Because I wouldn't mind a good recipe....

Bek said...

Um, yes please, caramel corn recipe.. I have a good one that uses marshmallows so it doesn't get hard, but I would love a Carina one.

Amen to tubs. I didn't know that you couldn't do that. See what happens when you don't birth your own children? If I WERE to give birth now, I am sure I would all the wrong things....

Food. I just made quiche. It is kismet. :-)

I took fairly hot baths throughout my pregnancy, and the princess seems to be just fine. Hot tubs of course, another story altogether.

I remember missing sushi, sleeping on my stomach, and belts.

Keep up the good work. It will all be thru soon!

fijiangirl said...

Hang in there!!! How much longer? Remember after the baby you can still eat like crazy since you are the champion nurser! (My hero!)

compulsive writer said...

Did you mean a hot tub or a "hot tub?" (Of course either or both sound heavenly right now. It is freakin' cold!!!)

I have a confession to make. I am not a huge sushi fan. Will you all still be my friends?

Sleeping on my stomach is always that sweet, sweet reward I have after giving birth in the hospital. Right after the nice nurse brings me my juice and Lorna Doones. However you decide to give birth, just knowing you can have a treat (might I suggested an eclair?) and sleep on your stomach, you should be able to do what'er you wish.

The Professors Roger & Virginia Klarvin look forward to being able to enjoy a nice hottub with you.


(my word verification: emsolt. It's a sign.)

Azúcar said...

We don't really know when I'm due, March sometime. It may also be February, it could be April. We have another ultrasound scheduled this week, so I'll probably have a better idea soon.

Welcome Kristib!

Little Jersey and her bossy ice cream cheeks...

I will have to quantify the caramel corn recipe. I can't believe you made quiche and I didn't get to have any.

I mean jacuzzi, the kind that stays at 105 heavenly degrees.
The key to sushi is finding the one kind you do like, and only ordering that. Failing that strategy, we can still be friends.

LVC- I wonder if I will get a medal along with my eclair...

The Klarvins! The thing I like best about hospitals these days is their fresh food. You know, being able to fill my belly with goat meat; my hands greasy, mouth glistening, body sluggish.

Rachel said...

You know, you're not exactly making the case for bearing children for me... with each additional post I'm more convinced that old spinster is the life for me!

Hey, will you eat a bunch of food for me? And then tell me about it? Each delicious morsel? Thanks!

Emmie said...

The Klarvins have their own Wikipedia page!

Next time we come to Utah, I'll bring you a Trader Joes treat of your choice.

Queen Scarlett said...

The best thing I looked forward to after pregnancy... back-sleeping...spa facial and massage.

oh...and in terms of spa/jacuzzi I want to own... we have a spa pad waiting for it... a bullfrog spa... those are the best...still waiting for it.

nie nie said...

so are you going natural? i support you all the way.


PS, I knew i could do it, even when i said i couldn't...seriously

Julie said...

Stomach sleeping was heavenly after my first baby. Not so much after that. It kills my back now. (sigh) I miss it.

Listen to your body. If it tells you to eat, you should--by all means--eat.

I can't say I'm a big sushi fan either. My husband is still trying to convert me.
