I'm sure giving up cleaning the litter box was a huge sacrifice ;) lol. Stuff I've given up/cut back on are things that just don't sound good to me right now. I don't drink coffee, I only rarely drink a caffeinated soda, mostly because it passes through my milk and makes my toddler not sleep well. I've never had alcohol in my life (really!) and I don't regularly take any supplements that aren't pregnancy safe. At least
I don't think :) Swallowing pills isn't kind to my gag reflex so I've even been slacking on the prenatal vitamin lately. And I've been feeling a bit better lately so I decided to try it on Monday afternoon to get back in the habit. Several hours later I threw up, the ONLY time I've thrown up this pregnancy! So its made me scared to try it again just in case there was a connection :( I do plan to take my entire stash of supplements to my midwife to ask if there's anything in particular she does *not* want me to take, or even if there's anything in there she thinks would be great if I took. I have an enormous supplement stash because I followed The Mood Cure plan for PPD (worked so, SO much better than antidepressants!! I highly recommend that book if anyone experiences PPD or even any depression, PP or not)
I normally have a massive out of control sweet tooth. And so now there's a part of me that WANTS to eat sweets right now (the habit? the memory of how good they taste?) but i just don't crave them. and i feel really gross after like, one cookie. Seriously, 3 weeks ago I got 2 boxes of girl scout cookies, and I still have some left!! I'd normally go through a box in like a day, rofl. And the kids have eaten more than I have. I've only recently started drinking Choffy again. for several weeks just the thought of getting up and having a hot beverage thats sweetened (not a fan of it unsweetened) just made me sick. and when I made it i'd make like, 2 mugs first, drink half a mug full then pour the rest down the drain. Choffy is cocoa beans that have been roasted and ground, then you brew it like coffee :) It tastes like HEAVEN!
So I "gave up" sweets.. but not like on purpose.
