Wednesday Pregnancy Report-- April 28

I know I'm sliding in this post at the last possible moment of the day, so I'll make this brief.

Introducing... My Wonderful Midwife!
This past Monday, I had my first official appointment with my new midwife, Stephanie and her assistant, Kate. I really like them both, and we all had a great time talking, listening to the baby's heartbeat, and reminiscing about my ten other births. I am really excited to work with them! :-)

This morning:

I woke up feeling good, but then my attitude grew sour as I made a HUMONGOUS batch of whole wheat pancakes (half blueberry, half not) but hadn't yet eaten.

Haven't you heard? Pregnant mommies get cranky when they've not been fed...

Anyway, I did finally make myself a cup of pregnancy tea and drank a tall glass of water. That seemed to help calm the hungry-mommie beast a little bit. And then the pancakes REALLY helped me feel better.

But I still felt over-tired today, so I was very relieved and grateful when my husband took the two big kids to their "Key of Liberty" class this morning. I did go and pick them up later, but it was so nice to only pick then up, and not have to sit and wait somewhere until their class was done. (Thank you, Honey!!!)

In other news: SUGAR!!!

I am trying to wean myself off of sugar. SURELY, I can do this for the last two months of my pregnancy for the baby's sake! So, after this batch of cold cereal is gone, I won't be getting any more. *gasp!*

A small victory happened when I didn't bully my son out of his hard-earned candy after class today. *grin* (Though he did give me three small pieces of DOTS candy out of pity and love. But I didn't ask him to!)

We announced to the girls that we need them to stop baking cookies, muffins, and cakes. Unless they're sweetened with honey or agave syrup. *sigh*

Wish me luck that I can "beat" this thing called sugar addiction... (I think I can... I think I can...)


  1. You can do it! Here's a tip from a good friend of mine: Let yourself have one "naughty" treat on Sundays. That way, you have something to look forward to without sabatoging your goals too much. (She is an exercise/yoga/dance/healthy stuff instructor at a bunch of gyms.)

  2. Mike has learned that lesson the hard way - hungry mama = angry mama :)
    Good luck fighting sugar! You can do it!
