My Dear Foodie Friends

I have some apologies to make and explanations for my blogging (or lack of it) the past few months. Since late June, my participation on your blogs has been severely limited and my blog posts few and far between (even enlisting my husband to post for me). The explanation is fairly simple, I'm pregnant :o) I'm now 14 weeks along and the heartbeat has been picked up which is why I feel I can let you all in on it.
The cruel twist to me being pregnant is that I get very, very sick when I'm pregnant. My diet is extremely plain, (I'm pretty much living on grilled cheese sandwiches) and the thought of most food which I previously loved turns my stomach extraordinarily. Anything with onion, garlic, peppers, beef, tomatoes...(okay I'm getting nauseous just writing it down so I'll stop)...basically anything with flavour is not agreeable to me. So that lovely BBQ my husband wrote about? I ate the plain tortellini from the pasta salad before he added stuff to it, that was it. Out of love for my 5 year old I made spagetti one night and then proceeded to my room for the rest of the evening sipping caffeine free root-beer trying to rid myself of any trace of the smell of it. Basically, I love all that you post, but right now, you're making me sick :o), but I'm really happy about it!

I LOVE your happy news and am sad that you are enduring such nausea. Oh, dear! Just yesterday I was thinking of you when I discovered a "new" pancake recipe and couldn't wait to tell you about it. Grins. Oh, well. Soon you will be back in the kitchen. In the meantime, you are never more than a thought away!

How exciting!! A new baby's coming!!! Sorry to hear that you are "feeling peaked" as my mom used to say. I'm sure you've heard tons of home remedies...wish I had a miracle one for you...frozen fruitcicles?

Ingrid said...

Oh, boy! Congrats...sorry that you're not able to enjoy food the way you'd like.

I didn't have any morning sickness with the twins but I was on bedrest from day one and had a mess of other issues. Needless to say with my second, uh third I was really worried about my pregnancy but it went pretty smoothly. Hope yours gets better!

Cheryl said...

Congrats on the baby, how exciting!

Congratulations! But I'm so sorry to hear that you are sick. I remember when I was pregnant, I would get SO mad at my husband whenever he cooked because the smell just killed me. I hope yours passes soon!
