Hi, guys! Not much to report on the baby front. We’re still waiting. No (obvious) signs of labor, but my lower back is kind of achy today, which is a new development. My friend Jen told me she had back pain the day before she went into labor, so maybe we’re getting close to something happening?
I had the worst time sleeping last night. Being 40+ weeks pregnant and hyped-up on steroids, I didn’t fall asleep until almost 1:00 AM and then woke up at 5:30 AM this morning. Blah. Not fun, but, thankfully, my sleep has been pretty good up until now, so I’m not too tired today, but I did wake up really hungry!
I had plans with a friend to go out for breakfast at Uncle Charlie’s later in the morning, but my stomach was already grumbling, so I ate a couple of mugs full of Cheerios Protein that General Mills recently sent me to try out. The Oats & Honey flavor is delicious with chunks of granola clusters mixed in. Mmm!
A few hours later, I headed to Uncle Charlie’s for breakfast #2.
I had a serious craving for blueberry pancakes all week long, so I made sure to order one.
I also ordered a side of scrambled eggs, so I wouldn’t be starving just a couple of hours later.
On the drive home from Uncle Charlie’s, I stopped by Starbucks for a decaf iced caramel macchiato, which was a little too sweet for my liking, so I watered it down with almond milk when I got home. It ended up tasting pretty darn good then!
I worked for a few hours and then took a break to eat a quick lunch: Dr. Praeger’s black bean burger with Light White Cheddar from The Laughing Cow on a toasted whole wheat bun with lettuce, tomato, and a pickle on the side.
After lunch, I did a little more work and then spent the rest of the afternoon hanging out with my favorite weirdos.
It’s been pouring rain all afternoon, so we’re just chilling and playing the baby waiting game. Come on, Hippity!
