    Oh gosh I never updated about the dr. appt. Well I had that Monday and all was well I go back in 2 weeks for them to see the heartbeat. The baby was still to early to see any heartbeat activity. He said my progesterone levels were great and there is no need to supplement progesterone with this pregnancy. Good News!!

    I have been finally sleeping better, it must have been the anxiety of finding out I was pregnant that was keeping me up at night. I am back to sleeping like a rock. Having pains in my belly when I stand up too quickly from the chair or from a laying position which really hurts. I tried doing some squats today and I can't do them, too much pain so I stuck with some upper body strength training, push ups, pull ups and some weights. I really need to move a little more, it has been over a week since I have done anything real physical other than moving Christmas boxes up and down 3 flights of stairs 2x's. I have been quite tired too.

    Trying to find a balance with the eating, don't have much of an appetite and then when I do nothing sounds good to eat. Today I had some pumpkin soup and a couple slices of pork roast and prunes. I also ate some kale that I cooked in butter, trying to up my consumption of fiber to help with the constipation.

    I am determined to stay on track here with PB throughout this pregnancy.

    Ugh so no matter what I eat or don't eat I am nauseous, but at least things are working in the right direction.
    You know what is really bugging me out, I am down to 196 and my pants are too tight LOL!! I have lost 31lbs to date and my preggo belly is busting out at night. During the day it is just bloated a bit, but at night it is full on busting out of the pants I am wearing. So much for thinking I could make it to the 12th week before having to crack out the maternity wear. That is still 5 weeks away. Otherwise all is well.

    Today I had some pumpkin pave that I got off of one of the MDA peeps blog, can I say yummo pumpkin. I had that for lunch, I had chili for breakfast and dinner was meat sauce over spaghetti squash. I have been having a lot of cheese as of late too, but trying not to stress too much about it, it really is the only calcium my body is getting besides generic vitamins. I don't get my prenatals for a little over a week from now. Still trying to find some balance with eating, it was so much easier before I got preggo LOL. I don't know half the time if I am hungry/sick orboth. Trying to eat little meals throughout the day and not letting my tummy empty, it seems to get worse when I do that.

    Well that is it from this end of the world.

    Well it has been several days since I have updated. Really almost 2 weeks. I had my 2nd prenatal visit they bumped my due date up to 8/7/11 and I wasn't too happy since that means longer time in the first trimester which quite frankly is kicking my ass. I have fallen off the primal wagon, partially. Part of the problem is I am so sick and the other dilemma is eggs and meat make me gag. I am hoping that this is only temporary and that when I get out of the 12th or 13th week I can eat resuming normally. I don't think I am going to make it on pickles and chicken stock over the next few weeks, these are the only things I am craving lately. Well I did have some cravings for roasted onions. I haven't been keeping track of any carbs at all. I keep telling myself it is just a phase, just a few weeks and life will go back to how I once knew it.

    It has been hard not beating myself up over this stuff. I so don't want to gain all the weight back that I lost, other than of course pregnancy weight. So that is where I am at these days. I am trying to keep up the blog, that has been hard since I haven't been feeling very creative in the cooking department, but I am hoping to squeak by with 2 entries a week if I can at least cook that many times in a week LOL.

    OK today we are hitting the restart button. I am not sure if it is all morning sickness causing the stress on me or also a combination of the m/s with the bad choices of food. I am going to try to stay away from all the crackers and high carb stuff. I got some great ideas from others here on MDA on what to eat, just to change things up. I think I was getting stuck in a rut when it came to what to eat now that my taste has so drastically changed.

    Right now sipping some ginger tea, it is good to have some fresh ginger back in stock. I had run out and failed to replenish which was a big deal, the ginger is really helping me the most. Last night I whipped up some of the pumpkin muffins from the PB cookbook and that is working on filling the whole need for something starchy to ease the belly. One of the great people had suggested delving into the baked goods end of primal for now just to get through this time instead of leaning on the old crappy gluten stuff. I also sliced up some sweet potato fries last night too, They helped a lot last night and tasted so yummy.

    So today if I am in the mood to eat I am planning on some egg salad on top of a bed of spinach leaves and an apple for lunch and dinner will be beef stew with the sweet potato fries. This morning I ate 2 of the pumpkin muffins and 2 garlic dill pickles...gross I know but it did taste so good, I don't think the pickles are ever safe around this house they get devoured so quickly. One thing I have been really jonesing for is a good italain sub with all the salt and vinegar, but trying to find a way to do it without the bread. I will have to think more on that one.

    Well that is it for now.

    Have been feeling better THANK GOD!! Had 2 succesful days with minimal morning sickness. Been doing well at staying more primal, went on a date with the husband last night, had mexican, bacon ranch chicken over salad and had some awesome guacomole on the side.

    Just went out and bought all the fun stuff for Christmas dinner here. I am making Dates stuffed with feta cheese and wrapped in prosciutto and mozzarella with tomato and basil drizzled with a pesto, shrimp cocktail. We are having the usual Ham and sides will be green beans with butter and slivered almonds, butternut squash with spinach and cranberries. Dessert will be a primal cheesecake. So getting busy this week in prepping everything. Looking forward to the holidays!!

    Well not that I want to jinx myself but I think I am finally coming out of the woods with the morning sickness. It has been 5 days since my last horrible episode. Thank God!! Now let's see if we can get back to some sense of normalcy.

    I updated the food blog with some new recipes I found and used on Christmas Day. That was real fun, the appy's were my favorite part of the whole meal, well besides the huge ham. I have no control over New Years Eve, but I am hoping to bring a few things primal to help, because I am not hosting, my sis in law is, she tends to load us up on the carbs, I know she has stuffed manicotti on the menu and turkey, so looks like the turkey and I will be the ones hanging out for dinner LOL.

    The pregnancy is going well, started to pop a bit, and it freaks me out, cuz I forget I am pregnant and not getting fat LOL. I haven't put on any weight so that is a good thing so far. I am in my 9th week.

    Well that is about it from here for now.

    Things are going well had a bout of m/s this week but mostly tired now. Looking forward to having some energy soon to do things around the house and hopefully get some walking in again. I haven't done much in the working out dept.

    The New Years party went well. I stayed primal that day, there were plenty of choices. Now I have to work on just eating when I am hungry again. I think I have gotten in a bad habit of eating whenever.

    Tonight I made some homemade guac and had some faux burritos. I used eggs as the wrapper and stuffed it with shredded chicken, jalapenos, salsa, guacomole and hot sauce....it was good. Seems I am really liking the salty, spicy, sour things this time around. I still have my own pickle jar in the fridge no one is allowed to touch LOL.

    That is it from here. I have my next Dr. appt this coming Monday, I will get a look at little bambino, let's hope all is what it should be. I have like 3 more weeks to be out of the 1st trimester!!

    Been having a hard time again kicking a bad sugar slip up. Stupid stuff is so highly addictive for me. I made it all day yesterday without giving in to the stupid monster. Today not so much and of course in the morning is when I had my weak moment. grrrrr!!! Well we move onward to tomorrow. I have to food shop tomorrow and thankfully there is no more sugar in the house and it won't be coming in tomorrow LOL.

    Well besides my carb rush this morning I have eaten good, for breakfast I had 2 egss with sweet potato fries, lunch was some turkey meatball soup also had some tuna rolled up in romaine lettuce and dinner will be chicken stuffed with feta and spinach.

    I am going to try to be more regular updating my food intake here, maybe it will help me stay on track and get back in the groove, now that I am winding this crazy 1st trimester down.

    On another note, been enjoying all the snow that has been coming. It is so pretty and makes the time pass until spring arrives. I can't wait for spring too, to be able to get out without having to bundle up. Until then I will enjoy the lovely snow fall.

    My next ob/gyn appt is Monday, excited and nervous. Hope all is well with the little bambino. This time around has been way more stressful for me in terms. I am worrying about way too much stuff, can't be helping with the cortisol levels.....I need to find a hobby to pass the time LOL.
