With this week (13) I have noticed a definite change in my appetite. I have been eating constantly for many weeks but for a much different reason than now. Before, the continuous snacking was to prevent getting sick, well to try to prevent getting sick. But now, I AM HUNGRY!
The past two nights I have actually eaten a normal person’s serving size and meal as opposed to my nibbling, wasting uneaten meals and only eating things like rice cakes with peanut butter. Wednesday night, Mark and I went to Applebee’s. I ate some spinach and artichoke dip and then ate most of my chicken finger basket. AND ENOYED IT! And last night, same thing, I ate a regular amount of dinner to the point of feeling full. This is quite exciting to me. Food has not been my friend or focus in a long time. We are now reunited. (It’s very tempting to say ‘and it feels so good’ right after that…cheesy, I know, but it does.) And then, at 4:30 this morning (thanks to Frida) I was starving and ate pop-tarts.
Yay…I can eat again. This was the part of pregnancy I was most looking forward to I must admit and now it’s here.
