Meat anyone?

The weirdest thing for me during this pregnancy are my food aversions/fascinations/obsessions. I can no longer drink hot beverages - I just can't stomach them! It's bizarre. So Iced Decaf Lattes for me. I also had a pretty strong Meat obsession during the first few weeks that is thankfully starting to pass. I'm just not a natural meat eater. Even thought I couldn't get it in my mouth fast enough, I still thought it was gross. LOL. It was actually pretty funny.

My newest thing are these semi-obsessions I've been having. I wouldn't call them cravings because they're not all consuming, but I basically decide that something sounds good and it's the ONLY thing that sounds good - until it's infront of me. For example, last week I really wanted a chicken salad sandwich. I managed to go about 4 days before I caved and made some one night for lunch the next day. I woke up pretty excited to eat my sandwich and then didn't eat more than two bites before I didn't even want to look at it anymore. Odd! And of course my craving dejour is a turkey burger, french fries and a chocolate milkshake. Healthy much? (Hmm, and I guess my meat cravings are still there... both meals I mentioned are meat-centric. Funny!)

As a side note, Koka isn't sure that he wants to find out the sex of the baby. 6 months ago I would have told that wasn't going to happen! But, I'm surprising low key about it. I'd prefer to find out - it would make the nursery planning a million times easier - but I figure if he has strong feelings one way or the other, I should indulge him. I tend to think that if we know more about the baby growing in there, we can bond with it better and be more prepared for the arrival. But, I guess we'll see when we get closer.

Speaking of the nursery, I did pick up these today on Etsy. They probably won't go with the serene nursery decor I imagine for the baby - but they were way too cute to pass up!

I figure, I can find SOME place for them. (Maybe Koka's office? LOL)

My night last night

6:00pm - Home from work
7:00pm - Refused to cook and ordered pizza
8:30pm - Fell asleep on the couch
9:00pm - Woke up long enough to eat Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia Frozen Yogurt
10:00pm - Crashed in bed
12:00am - Had a sleep talking conversation with Koka to "Get up and clean the chocolate off his back". Apparently I was extremely aggitated because he hadn't painted the airplane wings and was getting chocolate on the new bed.

Ok, so maybe I have more pregnancy symptoms than I thought. ;)

No real updates

Sorry for the lack of updates recently, there haven't been any major developments in the land of baby Meg and Koka. Things have been going well!

I'm 9 weeks today, so according to The Nest Baby, our FETUS (yay, no longer an embryo) is now about the size of a green olive.

My morning sickness has pretty much died down, and the only things I absolutely can't consume are hot beverages. (Those still make me gag.)

So far, I love being pregnant!

Meet our blob!

I think it looks just like Koka. :)
