Has anyone seen it? My husband might pay a hefty reward if you found it! Er...well, maybe not, as was evidenced by his request last night: "Can we have McDonalds tonight?" Haha. (For the record, my response was an eager "Yes, I don't want to cook!")
I don't know what my problem is. Maybe it's because nothing sounds good to me. Why would I want to cook if I have zero desire to eat the food? The foods I do desire to eat? French fries. That's pretty much it. Oh, and Twizzlers. Yep, that's about it. It's not morning sickness or anything like that. The thought of cooking doesn't make me want to go running for the nearest toilet or anything, like it did during the first trimester. It just sounds like a horrible idea. This is so foreign to me, since I really love to cook usually. (I also really love to eat usually, so not having the desire to eat anything is REALLY weird and I'm having a difficult time getting used to the idea, i.e. I have actually cried, real tears, because I knew that I needed to eat but I just didn't want anything!) I'm just hoping that this change will eventually go away. Even if it lasts the entire pregnancy, that's fine, just as long as it will come back after, because that would be really sad for me. I don't know how you people who don't like to cook do it, because right now, all I can think about it the fact that I promised Lee that I would make chili for dinner, and how much I just don't even want to make it at all. What would I rather have? Well, nothing comes to mind. Except maybe some waffle fries from Chick-Fil-A. But even that's pushing it :)
I've even been doing my regular holiday baking (begrudgingly, and only because some of our friends and co-workers have come to expect their annual treat box) and I haven't sampled one.thing. Not a cookie, not a pecan, not a piece of toffee, nothing. This is NOT normal! One second thought, maybe I should plan all of my pregnancies around the holidays if this is what happens. Yes, every other Thanksgiving and Christmas I will be pregnant. That way I won't gorge myself on pounds of sugar and chocolate during that time frame. Although I will still be gaining weight, so I'm not sure if that logic would really work.
I have been extremely busy at work this week (I know! I can hardly believe it myself!), and it's going to last until I leave for the holidays (my last workday of the year is Tuesday morning, then I'm off until the 2nd!) So I haven't really had time to blog lately, and now that I'm sitting here, I've forgotten all of the great blogging ideas I've had over the week! So, I'll just leave you with this, my 12 and 14 week bump pictures. I finally took one last week!
Week 12: Nov. 21-27
Week 14: Dec 5 - 11
And a totally gratuitous picture of Lee and the girls. Isabelle is smiling :) (Ahem, ignore the open shelves that we have yet to get doors for. It's only been 5 months since we finished those things)
