UGH!!! so sorry!!!
i have so little appetite these days. i've started juicing again (not that i like juice any better than food, but it seems useful) and want carbs, salad, and lots of cold icy drinks. bubbly water and salad and potatoes is a classic meal for me. i don't feel like it's balanced at all or ideal, but that's what the prenatals are for too, right?
i've been trying on protein, but not thinking about it too hard. b/c i just don't even want food very much.
i'd much rather sleep than eat right now!!! Thankfully, husband has been AMAZING on that front and kept me in bed for as long as possible each day. we've also moved our evening go-down time to 8ish- movie in bed and snuggling and he can stay up late and surf the web and watch movies, while i sleep away. it's good, b/c at the end of the day (as i'm sweeping/mopping/doing dishes/laundry etc) the baby's head is LOW and painful and the BH are terrifyingly intense. but in the morning, when i wake up, it's like the baby is kicking my collarbone the feet and butt are up so high. and i'm remembering this is how i spend the last month of pregnancy! feeling rough and painful (even intense back pain and BH together for hours some days unless i get off and stay off my feet) every night, but then baby is high and easy in the mornings.
