To pee or not to pee, that is the question.
I realized that I haven't given an update on my pregnancy since the 10 week mark, so I thought I was due to share my current experiences and cravings at 21 weeks. Especially because my body and feelings have changed a lot since then.
Can I just say that the second trimester is sooooooo much more enjoyable than the first trimester. I have no idea what the third trimester has to offer, but boy am I going to ride this joyous roller coaster until then.
Currently, I am going about my day like normal, cooking dinner, preparing lunches for the week, moving my body when I can, and just enjoying the marvelous changes my body is going through. It's still strange that I have no desire to drink coffee (since I couldn't go a day without it before pregnancy), so green tea is my new current addiction. I like mine with a little bit of honey and almond milk, yum! We have made some new purchases and investments, and are doing small things here and there to prepare for the new adventure coming in June! There's nothing like a new baby to push you to get house projects done. Thanks Baby K for the extra motivation :).
My goal or pregnancy "plan" is to have an unmedicated birth, so I did invest in hiring a local Doula, who will prepare and support me and my husband with trying to make my birthing "plan" happen (fingers crossed). If you haven't heard of Doulas or have no idea what they do, definitely check them out because the amount of positive support and education they can give you is amazing! Below is just a small update with some events that are happening now to best fit our needs as preparing to be a bigger family!
BODY CHANGES + FEELINGS:
PROJECTS TO GET DONE BEFORE BABY ARRIVAL:
Hopefully I will have one more pregnancy update before sweet little Baby K arrives in June. Thanks for allowing me to share my pregnancy updates. These blog posts are a fun way for me to journal about my experience, so our future little girl and I have something to look back on to treasure always.
Still craving everything,
Peanut butter and jelly is probably the greatest combination of all time. The nutty and creamy texture of any nut butter paired with a sweet and fruity spread is a perfect union.
I don't know about you, but my memory immediately travels back to my childhood as soon as I hear about these two delicious condiments. I loved eating PB + J sandwiches with a large, cold glass a milk and a bag of Utz potato chips, yummy!
This breakfast is hearty and fueling with healthy fats like nut butter, to keep you satiated, and chia seeds, to add some much needed protein! Not only is this delicious breakfast a healthy and simple meal, but it may even take you down memory lane to when you would eat PB + J sandwiches on the regular :).
Feel free to use any nut butter or jelly with this recipe, get creative! *When choosing a jelly or jam, make sure the first ingredient is FRUIT.
