too cute.... Liz
I love it!!! Love you Aunt Debbie
Yep I can see a little belly taking shape on you Monica! You look great and have that pregnancy glow already :) So I got to ask this question......Do you have any cravings yet or taste aversions???Maria craved any carbs!!! Spaghetti, pizza, candy mostly sour patch kids, ice cream were all craved foods. Oh also i think we would eat Chipolte at least once a week. There was one or two weeks we ate Chipolte 3 times in one week!!!As far as taste aversions she didn't want to eat steak. The reason was is she loved all steak cooked rare and while pregnant you are not supposed to eat rare meat :( But now since Alayna is here she has gone back to rare steak :) I cannot wait to see more pictures as the pregnancy progresses along!!!Oh one other question........Did you graduate from the progesterone shots???? I think after 12 or 14 weeks Maria stopped those but she still says her behind is numb sometimes :)
:) Thanks everyone! It is exciting because that means they just keep growing!I have a fairly physical job where I am on my feet all day and I do a lot of heavy lifting. I try to jog three times a week and walk extra when I can (back of the parking lot.. etc.) I eat really healthy through the week and then ease up on myself on the weekend. I also drink over 100 ounces of water a day, sometimes up to 130-140 ounces. My doctor wants me to gain 35-40 lbs. My appetite for the most part is ridiculous though and I eat a lot! I don't know that I've ever felt full since being pregnant! haha!As far as food, I want food food and hardly every want sweets. Considering I am a sweets girl I find that kind of odd. I want heavy meals, meats, soups/stews, salads.. comfort foods: mashed potatoes, chicken pot pie, chili. I have craved toasted ravioli once and even had an interesting dream about them, lol! That's mostly it for cravings though. Yes, I stopped the progesterone shots about 5 or 6 weeks ago? I'm glad to know that I'm not crazy... my bum has been sore/numb still and Jeremy loves to smack it! lol! That's when I really notice it! I don't think he gets it. (I also think he thought I was exaggerating) ;)
Jeremy you remind me of myself :) Mr. bum smacker!!!! I would do the same thing to Maria and she would get ticked don't you remember I numb there she would say. Maria is glad I am done stabbing her with those needles though. During our labor I told the nurses I was a professional shot "giver" and Maria said no he isn't he loved to stab me!!! I'm glab things are going well for you two!!!
