Only I would develop some crazy illness in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner. I'm probably the only person (pregnant at that) that lost 6 pounds Thanksgiving weekend. At eight months I now weigh less than I did when I initially found out I was pregnant (granted that was after a glorious vacation in Greece - Ahh feta cheese at every meal).
I am missing cheese and most every food out there as I have existed solely on saltine crackers for the past week. Never have I been so hungry and not wanted to eat at the same time! I'm making my favorite Greek chicken soup in a few minutes and can't wait to have a hot bowl of it. I'm overly cautious I guess because Saturday is my first baby shower, hosted by some of the best friends a girl could ask for! I just can't wait. I don't want to be doubled over in pain the whole time, so I'm sticking to Doctors orders and keeping the blandest diet known to man, but boy I'm missing cheese.
After getting the thumbs up to fly on Tuesday ( don't worry Baby T isn't going anywhere -other than up and down the east coast with me) I was on a plane down to FL yesterday. I didn't fair well. Thank goodness for first class with extra space, but gosh almighty I was sicker than could be (I've always suffered from motion sickness, and can't take meds to prevent it right now).
I was initially a bit sad to be gone from home for six days, during such a busy time, but think I'll need that long to be willing to board a plane again next week!
I'm happy to report i am feeling much better, and have added a bit more to my diet. My mom and I finalized our outfits for the shower this morning and she's having her massage therapist come give me a prenatal massage thus afternoon!
I can't wait to see all my friends in Tampa on Saturday, I was so scared that I would even make it!
My husband helped put things in perspective for me when he said you have three things to do in the next two months, go to your baby showers and push-HA! I'll take care of the nursery, our holiday party, and everything else. What a great guy I have!! I seriously hope I can do a lot more than that, but it's good to have a reality check every now and then, and a few pieces of cheese (maybe after the shower).
Lots of Love,
