Re: FFFC 1/4

  • My friend is getting married in Oregon in June and it was going to be hella expensive to fly my family out and stay for a few days. However, now by that time, I'll be too pregnant to travel and I'm relieved I have an excuse not to go anymore.

  • @moon1417 I think they were able to localize it to a specific region now but I'm not sure. Restaurants shouldn't serve it anyways unless they know their food supplier was not implicated.

    I've been craving BLTs lately and my DH fortunately planted romaine in our garden a few months ago so we have been using that for sandwiches.

    @moon1417 eat the lettuce! I get the extra concern but I say go for it. I tend to be extra un-careful about these things and I'm alive and well. Chipotle's reputation didn't keep me from my fajita burritos, even in the midst of the outbreak.

  • Pregnancy has been giving me vivid nightmares. Would you like to know what I'm apparently afraid of, deep down in my pregnant soul? 

    Non-standard toilets. I kid you not I have had TWO separate nightmares in which I desperately need to pee, only to arrive at a public bathroom to find weird, unusable toilets. 

    The first time they were too tall for me to reach, the second they were shaped like those angled paper waste baskets that hang on the bathroom wall. 

    Why is this even a thing, brain? Just why?
    Rainbow baby Dean is due 2/17/17!

  • I Ate am entire bag of SunChips yesterday - and I’m talking a regular grocery store sized bag - not a little fun size stick it in your lunch bag. And when they were gone I still wanted more!

    today I had my first soda since being pregnant. But it’s my birthday and I’m officially AMA today so I’m splurging!

    @moon1417 I had a caesar salad for lunch today. No regrets.

    This isn't really FFFC worthy, but I am getting a piddly amount of work done today. I just want to sleep.

    MollyH1987 not to take away your reason to not travel, please use whatever you need to to get out of going if you don't want to go! but will you be "too pregnant to travel" from your own personal preferences? I'm due early in the month (august 4) and I'm planning to take off work in June specifically so we can travel to visit family internationally (cross-Atlantic) before my cut off date. We usually go in July, but I can only fly up to 36 weeks by airline rules (and I wouldn't want to travel at full term anyways). I did the same trip at 32 weeks when pregnant with my son and it was fine. This time I'll be starting the trip at 32/33 weeks and ending the trip at 35/36 weeks (assuming no complications arise between now and then)

    AFM:
    I made cinnamon apple muffins yesterday that are so moist and taste like cake, complete with melted butter and sugar topping. I've eaten the whole batch already except for a few I set aside for company coming tomorrow....and I'm tempted to eat those too. they'll never know, right?

  • I hate Facebook, don’t have an account, and hate it when everyone leaves here to go to FB. 

    I know it’s more personal and people love it, but I hate it. More of a UO perhaps, but a confession too. 

    WinchesterGirlcaz_mama
  • @BigBadWolf12 Oh, that's true. I guess I was thinking the cut off was earlier than that for some reason. I'll see if DH wants to go or not. He seemed excited about going to Oregon (but not necessarily for the wedding itself...he wants to go to the breweries haha). Your trip sounds like it will be fun!

    I hope so, and I won't have a lap anymore, so DH will be stuck holding DS the whole time muahahahah. He doesn't turn 2 til September - our last chance to not buy his own ticket, and I would be shocked if DH suggested spending the money to get him his own seat.

    Edit: I changed "21 months" to "turns 2 in september" b/c I couldn't bring myself to say that many months. I judge people who go higher than 10 days, 12 weeks, and 18 months when they say their kids' ages. Just use the next bigger unit of measuring time, people! :D FFFC #2, I guess

    @BigBadWolf12 Do you have a recipe for those muffins? 
  • @mkrel here they are... I put in two small apples instead of one big one and used substitutions to make it safe for my son's allergies (I'm on the same diet for breastfeeding) - no dairy, egg, soy, nuts, sesame, wheat/gluten, or oats. So if anyone is gluten free or has other restrictions, you can use your safe subs and they'll probably turn out well ;)

    @database6 it's just that it's much more user-friendly. When there's a baby on your boob in the MOTN and you only have one hand, ain't nobody got time for TB's mobile bullshit!
    A few people in my other BMB joined FB *just* to continue interaction with our group, and I don't think they've regretted it! Maybe you can consider doing the same.

  • I'm having really vivid dreams too.  Not nightmares though.  But vivid enough to wake me up in the middle of the night every night.

  • We booked a babymoon to Norway in April and I am probably going to secretly eat the delicious salamis, salmons and (probably unpasteurized) cheeses. Pregnant women in other countries eat it... right? 

    But on a real note... has anyone's OB said deli meat is safe? Mine didn't say anything about it either way, but my BFF's OB made it sound like deli meat was worst thing you could eat while pregnant.

  • @oklahomak my MW said to either freeze the deli meat or heat it prior to eating. The concern is listeria which is one of the few bacteria that grows at refrigerated temperatures. (Though deli meat used to be the main culprit of listeria it is now frequently found in fruit and veggies/lettuce, so wash your produce and watch out for recalls)

  • @oklahomak omg Norway is fantastic.  My husband and I have gone road tripping there twice. Its so amazing. Probably my favourite place in the world to visit.  Italy was a close second,  but I think Norway is even prettier than Italy.  I hope you have a great time!
