It's not that it's hard to do...it's that it FEELS hard to do. It's like I'm juggling all these crazy emotions over this pregnancy, Sam starting kindergarten, Steve finding a new job (hopefully a post is coming soon about that), and me just feeling all this pressure to make everything work. It all falls down on me at unexpected times and I write it out here so my poor husband doesn't have to listen to me whine about it (I swear, that man is a saint).
Anyway...Baby Myles is doing well. He did a little jig for us during our spot ultrasound today. He is, if I'm allowed to say, absolutely ADORABLE...even in his transparent and slightly scary way. Everything looks good and we're up for steroid shots in two weeks as a precaution in case there is a need to deliver early due to any weird uterine infections cropping up. I am
Now I must ask you something...did you know that in the ice cream brands I compared, the no sugar added version only had ONE less gram of carbohydrate per half cup than the regular old sugar filled ice cream? What's the point? And how about this...ONE slice of stone ground wheat bread has almost as many carbs as TWO slices of Light Wheat bread (and light wheat tastes better)? I used to think those truth in food labeling advocates were a little off their rockers, but now I remember what all the fuss is about. There are some people for whom label reading is very important. Can you imagine believing you've bought the better bread only to find out (at home) you can only have HALF a sandwich? That would really tick me off.
Thank you all for your suggestions for yummy food ideas. I'm really doing ok. I've not gained any weight for three weeks now and Myles is growing and grooving. And there really isn't too much deprivation...it's just a matter of having to THINK about it now instead of mindlessly eating...instead of mindlessly doing anything. I miss the old days where I could be pregnant without having to think about it. But this is my life now. And I'll do it because I want this baby boy here and alive more than anything I've ever wanted in my life. Guess I'm not really as selfish as I sound.
