Happy fridge + my niece is the best + two days in a row

I had a working lunch yesterday – a smoothie and a piece of toast. My hunger was CRAZY all day, so I felt like I was constantly snacking. I am trying my best to eat some healthier things, but it doesn’t always happen. I want ALL the carbs.

I did a little meal prep for breakfast and Jake’s lunches this week. Our breakfast will be bagel sandwiches with egg and turkey sausage. I cooked a bunch of eggs and the sausage so all we have to do in the mornings is put everything together.

Hummus is SO good on egg sandwiches. The Roasted Pine Nut from Sabra is my favorite.

I got hungry while I was prepping, so I had one of the sandwiches for a mid-afternoon snack. It was delicious.

This picture is hard to see, but Piper (my sister) texted me yesterday and asked if I had played hide and seek with Eleanor over the weekend. I told her I had. Piper told me Eleanor just asked her to play and then sent me this picture of Eleanor hiding under the rug in their living room. I could not stop laughing. This kid…she’s the best.

I prepped salad and some spaghetti and meatballs for Jake’s lunches this week. Our fridge hasn’t looked this happy in a long time. I didn’t prep anything for myself for lunch because things only sound good for about an hour. I didn’t want to prep a bunch of food and then not eat it. Maybe in a few weeks I’ll be able to prep for myself!

After prepping, it was back to my office for a little bit of work. I think Rhea was over me working…she laid like this and stared at me for a long time.

She finally scooted closer and took a little snooze.

This has been my go-to snack lately. Those wafers are so delicious and you can’t beat a juicy orange.

The meds I’m taking for my nausea have some side effects that are really bothering me – dry mouth (I feel like I’m getting a cold when I take them, my throat gets so scratchy), extreme exhaustion, headaches, and dizziness, so I’m trying to only take them when my nausea is awful. It’s kind of like choosing the lesser evil, HA! I took one yesterday afternoon and once it kicked in, I couldn’t do much other than lounge on the couch. Lu was happy about that. I love when she lays like this with her front paws tucked in.

Jake got home from Colorado yesterday about 5:30pm, met with the guy that will be finishing our landscaping in the backyard (YAY!!!!), then he grabbed dinner for us. I had planned to cook at home, but after taking my meds, there was no way that was going to happen. I was craving toasted ravioli, so Jake grabbed Pasta Express. It hit the spot!

I went to the gym early again today! It was SO hard to get out of bed. I don’t know how I regularly used to get up at 4am. While I was driving to the gym, my nose started bleeding. I wonder if I’ll ever outgrow nosebleeds? I’ve gotten them since I was in kindergarten, if not before. Who knows!

We see my OB today. I have tons of anxiety and I don’t really know why. I think I’m always expecting the worst. Infertility can do that to you. And I hate it. I cannot wait until I start feeling movement. I think that will help put my mind at ease.

Happy Tuesday, friends!

    1) Eleanor is too dang cute hiding under the carpet!
    2) Food aversions in pregnancy are crazy! It last through my entire pregnancy….so I dont see food prepping for yourself anytime soon!
    3) I used to get soooooooo many nosebleeds as a kid. Ironically for a long time, it would start bleeding when I cried. It actually worked to my advantage. My parents used the “stand in the corner” as a punishment. So naturally, I’d MAKE myself cry and my nose would bleed and I didn’t have to continue standing in the corner! LOL

      Thank you!! She really is the best little girl. <3
      Oh, girl - I'm so sorry you had food aversions for so long! Ugh. That sounds horrible...
      Oh. My. Gosh. That story made me laugh so hard! I actually got a bloody nose one time after being spanked (I very much deserved it), but I think the crying also led to my nose bleeding. My Dad still feels awful to this day. I was horrible as a little kid, so spankings and time-out happened often. HA!
