I'm actually closer to 28 weeks- Wednesdays are my turnover days so I will be 28 weeks tomorrow. I am starting to reach that uncomfortable stage of pregnancy. It's getting harder to bend over constantly like when Aubs thinks it's funny to repeatably drop things on the floor to be "funny". It's also getting harder to run around with her and play. I feel like I'm becoming the un-fun parent because I can no longer throw her in the air and I get winded a lot faster when we are running around or dancing. I am trying to just push through it but it is rough sometimes. Also yesterday it was 93 and humid here so that is a whole other kind of uncomfortable.
Another thing that has been going on this week is that I have been really turned off by meat. Mainly just preparing it has been nearly unbearable. The smell and the feel of it makes me gag when I am cooking. I joke with my husband that we are only eating vegetarian for the rest of my pregnancy and he told me that's okay as long as I put some chicken in with his rice and beans. I read this quote the other week from the actor Peter Dinklage where he said that he wouldn't want to hurt a cow or a chicken so he wouldn't ask someone else to do it for him and that's why he's a vegetarian. That really hit home with me. While I wouldn't see myself having a problem with birds or fish, cows and pigs would be a problem. I don't think I could kill them, maybe because they are mammals? I don't know, but it has me thinking that maybe I should lay off the red meat and pork. Not having a steak or bacon for the rest of my life would probably be a little rough though. Although at the moment those things don't seem appealing to me at all.
Okay back to pregnancy- this baby is kicking me like crazy. Last night I had a really hard time falling asleep because girly was kicking me at all angles. Seriously it felt like she was doing jumping jacks in my stomach. Aubs moved but not this much. Aubs big thing was hiccups which I haven't really felt yet from this one. I think it's pretty amazing but it can also be a little annoying at times when she is all up in my rib cage.
I can relate to that quote too. Thinking about harming animals really puts me off of meat. I hope the rest of your pregnancy is wonderful!ReplyDelete
You are glowing Mal! Can't wait to see that baby girl... I'm sure your ready too!ReplyDelete
that was my changing point when I became full vegetarian. You have to look at things in a different way sometimes and your answer or actions might not be the same. I eat chicken again but no red meat or pork. I love the picture of you and Aubs! She is going to be a great big sisterReplyDelete
Seriously, you are glowing. You look so amazing with your flawless skin and that adorable belly. I think you should print and frame that picture of you and Aubs. Too much cute!ReplyDelete
