Bun In the Oven

So I have been very, very bad about keeping this updated. You see, I have not really felt up to cooking lately.
I am pregnant!
While this is beautiful and exciting news, it has left me very tired and pretty nauseous most of the time. This baby is kicking my butt so far!
I can no longer drink coffee (which I am in mourning over) because the smell makes me want to gag. Sometimes the only thing I want is a white bagel with butter or mashed potatoes. When I do feel well, the only thing my taste buds cry out for is Mexican.
Yes, I know this is weird. I blame it on the baby. It wants a beef taco, a chile relleno, a cheese enchilada, and lots of chips and salsa…daily. I haven’t given in every day, but I would if I felt well every day, and if my family would allow me.
So far they have been pretty good about it!
The great husband has been a dream so far. He is understanding when I go to bed at 7 pm. He is patient every morning and evening when I complain about how crappy I feel. He is just so excited to have this baby. I wish he could carry it.
Quinn is super excited to have a brother or sister. She talks to my belly daily and gives the baby raspberry kisses. It will definitely recognize it’s big sisters voice when it joins the outside world.
Teaching Jazzercise has been a challenge. I fear every time I get on stage that the customers in front may get splashed with my vomit. But that hasn’t happened yet, so I still have a job. The exercise has actually been good for me. It gives me a couple of hours of much needed energy.
Only a few more weeks until the 1st trimester is over. Hopefully all this crud will disappear and I will be in the blissful stage of pregnancy.
So I ask of you to be patient. I am not cooking a lot these days. You all know how to make a grilled cheese, so posting that once a week would be pretty useless.
I’ll be back in the kitchen soon…I promise.
Have a wonderful, safe, and joy-filled holiday season!

    Congratulations, Erin! I’ve definitely missed reading your posts but I’m oh so exchited about the new addition to your fam. I, for one, could eat chips and salsa, chili rellenos and any sort of mexican food every day and I’m not even pregnant, so I’m not sure what that says. I hope you feel better soon! 🙂

    Hi Erin, I popped in to your blog after a long time, and had a lot of fun cathcing up on your posts from this fall. You’re such a good writer! I knew from facebook that you’re preggo, but I’m congratulating you again anyway! Hope you feel better soon. It’s awful to be naseauos (?) most of the time. We just got back from two weeks in India and Christmas sneaked up on me… trying to get the house decorated but this will certainly be a low key one. Take care! Hugs – Catharina.
