Yes, you guessed it. I’m pregnant. We are expecting a baby sometime around the end of May. We are excited and nervous all at once.
Keeping up with my appetite has been somewhat exhausting. I feel like I have to bring so much food with me everywhere, just to anticipate a hunger attack. I haven’t really had specific cravings. I’ve been lucky so far in that my morning sickness wasn’t that bad. I just had some nausea, bloating and fatigue. Now that the first trimester is over, I’m feeling better.
Thanksgiving was wonderful. We ate a big potluck-style meal with our church family here, and took the opportunity to share the good news with them. I made this stuffing from epicurious which turned out pretty well, though next time I would increase the fresh herbs and maybe cut back a little on the butter. I also made my Grandma Buckwalter’s cranberry jello salad (fresh cranberries ground up in the food processor, mixed with apples, oranges and walnuts, and suspended in raspberry jello). Both dishes were scraped clean.
The bread-making continues. I try to make about one loaf a week, and that is usually consumed in 2 days. It’s so easy, and so good.
Love to you and yours. And let the Christmas baking begin!
