19 weeks 2 days
I grabbed one of husband’s yogurts for a morning snack. I usually stick to plain yogurt, but these just looked so convenient! Yogurt by itself is so boring to me now that I combine it with cereal, fruit, nut butters, seeds etc., but I don’t mind vanilla yogurt. I read once that vanilla ice cream/yogurt is the closest thing we eat compared to the flavour of breast milk! Make of that what you will.
Honestly, I am jealous of other country’s yogurt options. I have visited a few countries in Europe and the United States and Canada’s yogurt selection just doesn’t compare! I remember buying “sticky toffee pudding”-flavoured yogurt in Scotland. Words cannot describe!
For lunch, I had a salad!
This one contains:
- Baby spinach
- 1/2 tomato
- A few “trees” of broccoli
- A few slices of cucumber
- 2 sliced mushrooms
- A few slices of green pepper
- 1 medallion of goat cheese (yum!)
- A small handful of unroasted almonds
- 4 sliced dried apricots
- A couple of tablespoons of “Mediterranean” dressing
I think feta works better with tomato than goat cheese, though. There is always tomorrow’s salad! And the next day’s, and the one after that…
Of course I had four squares of dark chocolate for dessert. Of course!
I am leaving work a bit early today to go to my midwife appointment. I see her every four weeks. My favourite part is hearing the baby’s heartbeat. Hearing it for the first time was one of the greatest experiences of my life! I just began to feel little twitches and sensations in my abdomen on Thursday, which I believe to be the baby moving around. Yesterday I didn’t feel it at all which had me worried, but today he/she seems to be doing some dancing, so phew!
At the appointment, I am also weighed. I think last time I was 180 or 181, so I am hoping for the 182-184 range. I think that’s about how much you are supposed to gain at this point in pregnancy: 1/4 to 1/2 pound a week? I am sure Google will tell me. What can’t Google tell me?!!?
