I’m late! I’m sorry. I don’t have a good excuse at all except that I had a rough week. Blah. Those happen sometimes though. That’s okay.
Baby is the size of a: Pomegranate. I adore pomegranate and pomegranate juice, a love affair that started when my mom started bringing them into the house when I was in high school. Those seeds are like too much for me to deal with sometimes though.
Due date: Sept 3rd, 2016
Total weight gain: I really have no clue. I feel good, I look good, and I’m feeling really healthy. I will hop on the scale after we get back this weekend.
Sleep: Sleep is great – however, I am still getting up one time around 4:45 am to go to the bathroom. This morning I was in bed for too long and was kinda in pain by the time I finally got to the bathroom.
Best moment this week: Whew. This was a really tough week. But the best moment was teaching cycle. That class makes me feel good. And people really seem to like it.
Food cravings: Still sparkling things. I’ve been drinking a ton of seltzer still, and it is soooo refreshing.
Food aversions: I think I’ve tossed the towel in on meat. I tried, in an effort in increase my animal protein, to get some in, but I’m so over it. It just feels like too much chewing to me.
Symptoms: I started feeling really uncomfortable last week, and I texted a friend about it. She told me to get water and put my feet up. Turns out, I was a little dehydrated and having some contractions. I have really been minding my water more since then.
Looking forward to: A wedding this weekend in Wilmington with Austin.

Hope you have fun at the wedding! And there’s tons of ways to get healthy protein in that doesn’t involve meat, so don’t worry about that! You can also try protein powder or do things like rice and beans for complete protein 🙂
Oh I know! I have been meatless for years – my nutritionist really wanted me, as I went through the pregnancy to try to embrace animal protein, and I don’t like it. I’m just not interested.
