  1. Update: hunger issues fixed! (mostly!) The solution: eat a banana riiiiiight before I go to bed. Presto, no more waking up hungry in the night! I still feel hungry in the morning, but not the moment I wake up. I take a few minutes to eat a muffin before getting on with my routine and it's working well so far.
  2. The past couple days have been troublesome food-wise. I don't think I'm eating enough calories. I wake up hungry. I snack but still feel hungry until lunch (around 11am). Then I'm hungry again at 1pm and eat all the rest of my snacks over the next couple hours. By 4pm there's no food left in my lunch bag and I'm resigned to getting a bag of chips from the nearby vending machine. The drive home is tortuous and I'm tempted to do the McDonalds drive thru. Once I do get home, there's lots of healthy stuff for me to snack on like fruit and cheese and nuts. I cook a decent dinner that leaves me full
  3. Still around, still kicking. We announced the pregnancy to our families and on social media so most everyone knows now. Good: told our families on Mother's Day and there was much celebrating and joy and a few happy tears from my parents (who are not yet grandparents). Bad: the unapologetic policing of my behaviour has already begun, hooray for my feelings and needs being irrelevant because there's a thing in my belly. I literally told everyone they were being pushy and they responded with "lol too bad, this is your life now" :| Two weeks away from my next OB appoin
  4. My parents have this in their master bathroom and have never used it. They've been in this house for 8 YEARS.
  5. I think I'm having a similar problem, except instead of wanting to eat more I just want to eat badly. Example: last night I was for once content at the end of the day and I didn't wake up hungry... but that's because I'd eaten a crapload of crispy taquitos followed by a bag of dill pickle chips for dinner instead of healthy protein with vegetables like I usually do. The guilt was outweighed by my "MY CUP RUNNETH OVER WITH SATISFACTION" feelings haha.
  6. Random infodump time... here's an example food diary for one day (since I started this new job): Breakfast - a tumbler of weak black tea with honey and powdered creamer - 1 fruit-to-go snack Morning snack - 5 mini cucumbers Lunch - mock turkey breast on multigrain bread with jalapeno havarti cheese - organic greens with seasoned croutons, shredded nacho cheese, and balsamic vinegarette - 4 cups of water Afternoon snack - small container of roasted chickpeas - 1 apple Drive home snack - 1 banana & dark chocolate granol
  7. Hiiiii I know I haven't been around but I want to say NICE WORK on your goals and also boo-ray for doing the audition. You rock!
  8. HI, NF! Sorry for going AWOL again, life happened. 1. I had two weeks off after my last job ended. The first week I prepped for Vegas and second week was Vegas itself. Those two weeks (and the week after) were probably the worst of my pregnancy symptoms, unfortunately. Plus I caught a bad cold just as we were leaving for Vegas, so I couldn't taste anything the first 3 days AND I had such a high fever (that I couldn't take craploads of drugs for, because preggo) that I spent the first night in Vegas with icy towels on my forehead, hallucinating at the ceiling. And once my sense of s
  9. Yeah it's because of my history. My doctor said this usually isn't required for pregnant women, but in my case she wants me to play it safe for the first trimester.
  10. Hiyo NF! Sorry I've been AWOL, life's been busy and I steppes away from thr computer for a good while there. Some updates... 1. Had my final day at my job where they tried to stuff me with lemon cake and cinnamon buns. Got a goodbye card and lots of hugs. Will miss the people but not going to that place anymore, phew! 2. Trip to Vegas booked! We are going Sunday to Friday next week, can't wait to experience some warmth and revelry. 3. Had my first ultrasound and holy shit everything looks great so far. Embryo is bigger than last time (in fact, dating by u
  11. When I lived on my own I started out as wanting to eat healthy, then I realized if I didn’t eat healthy I wasn’t eating at all. So I started making concessions for my own health and taking shortcuts as needed: frozen, pre-cooked, or canned food are still all food… and are a better option than starving myself. Easiest way to be healthy for me was to try to be vegetarian most days.
  12. Feeling pretty good today. I don’t have much of a sore throat or cough, and my preggo symptoms are taking a breather too. I’m at the point where not feeling nauseous is weird, haha. Tired though. Was coughing all through the night, it was so annoying. Tonight is the last chance to book our Vegas vacation! I haven’t been there in over 10 years, can’t wait to see how it’s changed. We’re only going to be there during the week so it shouldn’t be too busy either.
  13. You're doing much better than I am, I keep brushing my teeth but not flossing! Maybe I should keep the floss out on the counter instead of inside the cupboard to remind me.
  14. So it looks like both husband and I are pretty psyched to do Vegas, so that’s what we’ll do. I have vague concerns that there will be too much second-hand smoke there but all my research is showing that it’s quite safe for pregnant women, you just have to stay hydrated and make sure you eat/rest. Forgot my progesterone supplement for the first time last night, oops! Nevertheless, still nauseous af this morning, hooray. I’m doing a full morning of training this morning, so talking with a sore throat + no chance to snack makes me worry that I’m going to feel like total crap by the en
