I was reading about women at 28 weeks, etc. I completely missed the first and second trimesters without a blink! Where was I the past few months?

You don't know how lucky you are-I barfed for about 6 months-doc said I was sensitive to the higher levels of hormones in my body. OMG if somebody walked by me that I though smelled bad. And it was day & night too. But man when it was over the last 3 months were butter pecan Haagen Daazs and rice krispy treats. Are you having any cravings?

My friend's homemade waffles.Just a touch of maple syrup is all it needs.

I always crave Tex/Mex...baby or not!

Dark chocolate Hershey bar with almonds sounds divine about now.

Grilled English Muffins with butter and strawberry jelly.

I would love some lobster but someone said bottom feeding fish are bad.I love clams, too. I was born and raised in New England. I know for sure my Mom ate fried clams when she was pregnant with me!The mercury levels are probably higher than they were 39 years ago.

October 16th. I showed my Husband the pictures (diagrams) of what the baby looks now and in the upcoming weeks. His eyes got big!

So did mine when I first saw them!

Lora, I just now read on a thread in the ML about your recent news, expecting a baby.

CONGRATULATIONS!

I guess I'm out of the loop when it comes to big news...just wanted to extend my warmest wishes for a happy, healthy prenancy. Very happy for you and yours.

Cassidy, I couldn't resist that adorable Baby Girl...it's how I would have pictured my baby girl, had I ever HAD a baby girl....not! God figured I needed all sons. MY THREE SONS.

Lora may have a preference, but that sweet, doe-eyed baby girl icon stole my heart!

She is a cutie girl icon!

I picture our daughter as having bright blue eyes with dark brown hair.

While pregnant, I decided to forgo eating Paleo for the next few months and to use the Simply Filling Technique from WW. I noticed I am not as hungry as I thought I would be. Not really craving anything in particular except carby stuff like English Muffins or Belgian waffles. I know that bananas, almonds, whey protein shakes, whole eggs and meat in general seem to be tastier to my palate than before. It's very strange I am not hankering for the junk type stuff. Well, cheez-its are good!

At the moment, I am eating when hungry and going from there.

Glad to hear you arent craving the junk, but then not all women do, but it seems that everyone craves something odd, if only dill pickles by the jar full!
I craved many weird things, with one child all I wanted was the tubes of Pillsbury's chocolate chip cookie dough but I didnt want the chips so I would pick the chips out as I ate it.

Those are nasty to my palate! I love the salty crunchy familiar goodness of Cheez-Its.

Oh and one more thing. How is it my belly has grown larger since last Friday??From a melon ball to a cantaloupe in 5 days!

And the thought of cookie dough in itself makes me However, fresh from the oven cookies is Happy it is too hot for those!

What is really funny is my husband is having sympathy cravings and ailments. Like going to the bathroom a lot or wanting ice cream.

The baby's head rubs against my bladder, so I have an excuse for the first part.

Ice cream?? Meh..I could take it or leave it. Now pink lemonade?? Yummy!

The only thing is a new set of problems where work is concerned. Believe me, I detest my co-worker with a passion and to have to train her for my position makes me want to throw up.

"Fake Smile and Fake Nice". That is how I had to get by today.
