Well, no minor holiday is safe. On St. Patrick's Day, I found out that I am pregnant! I am 5 weeks and 1 day now.
Estimated due date is November 26th. And since I know our babies seem to be punctual, I'm guessing it may happen even before that.
Chris says I'll do anything to avoid going to visit his family for Thanksgiving... not really. But I'm not too upset about missing a trip with three kids.
I was reading old blog posts today and saw that I felt like I needed stretchy pants by 5 or 6 weeks last time too. So that makes me feel good.
Haven't gained any weight, and I started at two pounds less than I was when I got pregnant last time.
Currently, we are eating sort of "primally". Follow the link if you want to know more. Wheat makes Lorelei crazy, I suspect it makes Xander wet the bed, and gives Chris a stomach ache (which he conveniently forgets the day or two after eating it, so I have to remind him). We eat lots of protein, good fat (the clinic told me that vegetable oils were good fat. Face plant...), and get carbs from fruit and veggies. Some rice and corn now and then too.
One thing I know from my post "Just Keep Eating", was that I was hungry all the time last pregnancy, even at this point. Right now I'm not at all. I get hungry around my normal eating times, and feel pretty darn good.
While I'm not as strict as this family, (by strict, I mean I eat some good dairy, and some grains and such), I'm interested to see how this pregnancy progresses compared to the last. Not that I ate unhealthily, but there were a lot of grains involved. Before I got pregnant this time, we had been eating primally for two months or so. As soon as we got into it, I stopped having to eat so often (normally, breakfast upon waking, lunch at 11, a snack or two mid-afternoon, and could hardly wait for 6pm dinner). The need stopped being as urgent, and I didn't feel that low blood sugary, food craving stuff. It's very liberating.
Now with all this food talk, it might be time for breakfast. Bacon and eggs.
