It has been weeks since I cooked something that didn’t come from a box, wasn’t a simple pan of scrambled eggs, or a grilled cheese. My poor husband is so very tired of take out and convenience foods, and my daughter has mastered helping out with the grilled cheese process.
I swear I’m not on strike, though! I’m just waiting for my energy to return, and for some lingering nausea to subside.
What’s that? Oh, yes… we’re expecting our second child! I’m due September 9.
I found out on New Year’s Day and within a few days, my life was turned upside down thanks to debilitating nausea and exhaustion. First trimester is no joke, folks! I’ve finally found a magic cocktail that helped with the nausea and vomiting, and now I’m just waiting to regain some of my lost energy. My house is a disaster area. I live in yoga pants and camisole tops. And we’ve already covered my family’s current diet.
I’ll be back to normal soon, though! I have hope! I’m just past 12 weeks and coming up on second trimester, which is when things should get even better. Or so they say!
