Yea - I Cooked!

So for the past two weeks - or since I have actually "felt" pregnant, I have had little to no appetite. I get hungry, so I eat, but nothing ever sounds good. On occasion I get in the mood for tacos and burritos...but that about the only craving I have had.

So when I come home from work, that last place I want to be is in the kitchen. Brant has been amazing (to say the least) and usually cooks for us, or goes and picks something up for me. But last night I actually cooked - YEA! Now it was nothing special - some bbq chicken and roasted new potatoes - but still, it was progress!

This pregnancy thing is kind of funny. I have always been a red meat kind of girl - I LOVE me a good steak. But not now! Red meat just looks bad to me. Chicken is pretty much my one source of protein right now (unless its a Taco Bueno taco!) so Chick-Fil-A and I have a meeting at least once a day! I found that if I eat good protein for breakfast, I have a much greater chance of having a nausea-free day!

Congratulations! I was so thrilled to read your blog! God is so faithful and thank you for sharing that with all of us. I hear you on the red meat thing. I ate so much chick-fil-a with pregnancy number 2 that i actually dont care for it too much now. YEAH, i never thought i would say those words, but it happened :) I am gonna be praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy for you! SO SO SO excited for you and Brant!

Yep, pregnancy does weird things for your taste buds. I agree too, that if you eat something first thing in the morning it helped me to feel better throughout the day and I didn't get as icky feeling
