Craving ice cream! This spells trouble!
You might remember that I was having trouble earlier in the pregnancy with my band (it corrected mostly with going back to better water drinking habits) and what I could or couldn't eat. Now it takes me at least an hour to eat about 3/4 to 1 cup of food. Some times it takes longer depending on what I'm eating. I even am having a little difficulty with thicker soups or chunkier soups. Example: For lunch which I started at 11:45am I am eating very moist ground turkey nacho pasta. I have only been able to eat half of it so far and I am still working on it at 1:53pm. Two mornings ago I felt a little bit of a problem when I drank some water first thing after waking up. SSssssoooo I have called my doctors office and am waiting to get a call back from a nurse....to get a referral...then wait for approval....to make an appointment....to drive an hour or more on a day I have to take off from work....to see a surgeon to talk about getting an unfill if they decide not to do it on the spot (if not I have to take a whole other day off work). Jeesh, I like that my insurance covers so much but this is such a long process just to do something that (if I had the right needle) I could do myself. It's frustrating. I hope that me being pregnant and having trouble eating will speed things along a bit.
In other news only 9 weeks to go (fingers crossed) until little girl makes her appearance!
I live on base and we have been notified by our housing that on 21Jan they will be fumigating all the houses on our street. It's a thing that they do every couple of years. So we have to vacate the house with all 3 animals for 2 days and go through all the crap that it entails and have to take all of the baby's stuff with us because I don't feel comfortable with it being exposed to those chemicals even though I am going to wash it all. All I keep thinking is that I don't have time for this nonsense.
We had a very nice calm New Years eve. Watched a couple of movies and I had a glass of sparkling cider. If you have been following me for a while you might remember that I don't drink carbonated beverages any more because I learned early on that they are just one of those things that screw with my band and make my stomach hurt. But I drank it in small sips over a long amount of time and did just fine. No, that is not why I had trouble with my water. The sparkling was the same day but much later. But it was a nice night.
I hope you all had a great new years eve and day and that 2013 brings you as much joy as I am expecting from my 2013!
