Pregnancy does not make me crave strange foods. As a vegetarian I wondered how I would handle a fried chicken craving (and how my body would handle it having been on a vegetarian diet for 8 years now!), but the opposite has been true. I haven’t wanted to eat some of my favorite foods. Most food does not sound appetizing. I eat now because I should, not because I enjoy it. However, yesterday, my lunch made me laugh. It was something that the typical pregnant woman would probably crave, but it’s simply a meal that I’ve enjoyed since sharing it often with my roommate after school when I attended Ricks College the 1998-1999 school year. It was a hearty slice of whole wheat bread, spread with a generous amount of cream cheese, then topped with sliced cheddar and provolone cheeses, and finally sliced pickles. The whole thing was broiled in an oven till the cheese bubbles. mmmmmm….
I should be eating more…I’ve only gained two pounds so far. Yikes. However, my belly is progressing nicely. I’m still just looking rather chubby, but Garth and I have confidence that it will turn into something more substantial in the near future. Our ultrasound is coming in a few weeks and we’ll be able to start saying ginger or danger rather than baby when referencing my belly.
Now I’m off to be a good pregnant lady and eat some more. I’m making crepes! mmmmm…..
elle aye you are aye
