My Midwife Should Be Happy

If things continue they way they've been the past two days, I would expect to see some weight gain by my next prenatal appointment. While I don't necessarily LIKE gaining weight, it is a good thing when you are 15 weeks pregnant and haven't gained a pound. And why haven't I gained a pound? It isn't because I've spent my days hanging my head over the toilet bowl; it's because I just plain haven't been interested in food. Any food. Not even my favorite sweets. It's weird when you don't want cake, cookies, ice cream, donuts, or any of those other wonderful sweet treats.

But something clicked yesterday when I dragged my children to the grocery store to find something, anything, for dinner. My lack of appetite has meant a lack of food in the house, and I really didn't have much to choose from at home.

While I was there, it seemed that suddenly everything sounded good. I came home with dinner and some other staples and meats so that there would be food in the house for at least a couple of days.

So, what was for dinner last night, you ask? It was yummy!

Marinated London broil
Baked potatoes with butter, cheddar cheese, and sour cream
Fresh green beans with sauteed onions
Peas
Wheat French bread
Caesar salad
Chocolate cake and cookie dough ice cream with hot fudge sauce

The appetite continued into today. I enjoyed a large bowl of one of my favorite cereals for breakfast since it was on sale at a good price. Then for lunch I cooked everyone steak and cheese omelets topped with more cheese and sour cream. I paired that with grapefruit which I haven't bought nor eaten in several years. Now, I'm thinking about dinner.

I'm glad your appetite is back! I get the same way when I'm pg - nothing sounds good and when I do manage to eat, I'm sick.
