  • @lillywonderland We used to be a Toyota family, but after problem after problem with our 4Runner, we are now a Subaru fam. I'll never go back. I LOVE our outback. Plus their commercials kill me. The dog family ones especially 😭.

    @kgg2241 Say it ain’t so!! We’re eyeing the 4Runner right now (and have been for a couple years 😂).  
  • @lillywonderland I honestly think we got a lemon. It totally soured (no pun intended lol) on Toyota's though. Everyone else I know loves them!
  • @kgg2241 oh man, that’s awful! It’s a bummer getting a vehicle that ends up being nothing but issues. Hopefully when @lillywonderland and I get one we won’t have issues!

  • Y'all are making me want waffle fries something fierce! 🤣

    Also, kinda debating saying F it to the glucose test. My metabolism has always been wonky and being pregnant isn't helping much. I'm also worried that if I "fail" it and I'm supposed to go on some special diet that I will get psycho about food again. 
  • @cheshyre319 I’d definitely be open and honest with your doctor about your concerns and what failing it could mean for your mental health/relationship with food. I don’t believe you can skip the test all together because it has to do with your placenta’s functioning, not just your regular metabolism, but he/she can definitely find ways to soften the blow if it’s an issue and help you not be on an epically restrictive diet.

    I thought I was guaranteed to have it last pregnancy (and this one they tested me at 10 weeks, and will do so again in 4 weeks) and so far I’ve been fine. Last week my doctor made a big deal about my weight, yet again, and I finally advocated for myself and informed her about my rocky past relationship with food/dieting and how much work I’ve done to repair that relationship and get to a mentally healthy place, so her trying to limit me to only gaining 10 pounds this pregnancy and acting shocked that I’ve gained 15 pounds was NOT helping. Luckily she was receptive and quieted down quickly.

  • @lillywonderland @kgg2241 I just bought a 2018 4Runner last year and I love it so far! I had a hand-me-down 2003 version several years ago, then switched to an accord once it had 250K miles on it. My 2003 model seemed to have a little more pep, but it was a V8 and they don't make V8s anymore. So far I love it, but I was back and forth between the Subaru too! I don't think you can go wrong either way
  • I was late to work today because I HAD to stop at Walmart for Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I haven’t had it since I was little, but what baby wants baby gets  
  • @zuuls_mom all about that balance!

    @duewithpu2 now that you are sharing your love of CTC, I can share my cereal secret: I love hot nestle quick (with milk) with Kellogg’s cornflakes. The combo of hot chocolate with Kellogg’s is out of this world. Yes, aware of the 

    @dinosaur and @sunshine2417 ditto!!!! Salad is just a vehicle. Like chips for guacamole.

  • @rms I can see how that would be good!
  • I feel like this thread is my personal confessional...

    I ate an entire pint of Ben & Jerrys in one sitting on Saturday afternoon.  The bad part is, it wasn't even that good.  DH got it for me and I started eating it to be polite... and then it was gone.

    Also, I know this is somewhat controversial, but I'm really starting to want a glass of wine.  DH is pretty adamantly against it, but I'm not too worried about a random glass from here on out... But it makes me feel dirty and sneaky cuz I'll probably drink one some evening when he's not going to be around.
  • @RedBreast35 what I wouldn’t give to have a nice summer beer! Don’t they say a glass of red wine is ok? 

    For dinner I had 4 slices of pizza and an entire box of rice pilaf. 
  • @RedBreast35 Scientifically speaking, 1 glass of wine isn’t going to harm unborn LO, especially at this stage of your pregnancy - all the organs are essentially formed, they’re just “practicing” real life functions right now. 

    Also, I love reading what ya’ll are all eating. I had a gigantic mint chocolate chip waffle cone this weekend. It was delicious, but DS ate 90% of the delectable waffle cone. Wtf, progeny?!
  • @RedBreast35 100% with you on the glass of wine. Esp as we start to spend more time on the boat and everyone is drinking... I probably won't though, because I'm a big pansy. 

    @duewithpu2 UGH! The torture of the cone smell! I love how random your dinner was. I need to grocery shop so last night I put together a dinner of peanut butter toast and a bowl of rice krispies cereal and cantaloupe. 

  • @duewithpu2 yeah, I think it's fairly generally accepted that having a glass every once in a while isn't going to do any irreparable damage to LO at this point. But it's definitely a comfort level thing- and some people just aren't and that's fine too! @lillywonderland I had 5 glasses of wine with pregnant with DS (yes, I counted and remember exactly, lol) and he turned out A-OK if I do say so myself.  
    @nomangos23 your dinner sounds remarkably like mine last night!  Except replace Rice Krispies with Apple Jacks  ;)
  • @RedBreast35 I split a can of cider with my husband last week, and it was hard not to be sad that I had agreed to share. But it was really tasty and at this point, I think it is a just about comfort level. 
  • 1. Aldi’s Nectarines are everything I’ve ever wanted and more, right now.

    2. I tried Starbucks “dragon drink” this morning which is a mango dragonfruit refresher made with coconut milk and it is diviiiine!

    Gimme alllllllll the sweet fruity things!!!
