Making My Way Back!

Little by little I'm starting to feel like myself (pre-preggo)! Today there were two huge milestones in my simple little life!
  • I slept on my stomach. FINALLY! I've been so sick of sleeping on my side for months 'cause it was killing my hips. Last night I carefully placed myself on my stomach hoping my incision would not 'cause excruciating pain and everything was fine!
  • SUSHI - a good friend of mine came over yesterday and brought lunch. The day before she had asked what I had been craving and the truth was the only food I've been dying for is sushi. I'm an addict and it is by far the hardest thing for me to give up during pregnancy! After a little research I learned that there has not been any risk linked to sushi and breastfeeding so I was all about housing as many rolls as possible! It was so unbelievably good and I was so stuffed that we couldn't finish all the rolls that my friend had brought over. Lucky for Justin he made it home for a snack before I hit the fridge up for round two!!!

Yep- that was the highlight of my week. I told you I had a simple little life! Next up Margaritas and Red Bulls. Unfortunately both are big no nos when you are nursing so it will probably be awhile before I tackle those hurdles!

On the downside though Madison started with a summer cold yesterday and I woke up with a scratchy throat this morning. We'll be fine and it is no big deal I'm just worried about the baby catching something. Keepin' my fingers crossed!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway for a Bailey Medical Deluxe Nurture III Breast Pump in celebration of World Breastfeeding Awareness Week which starts today! Even if you are not nursing maybe you now someone who does who could use this awesome pump!

Sleeping on my stomach was one of the things I missed the most when I was pregnant. I couldn't wait to just lay down and stretch out. Hope the baby stays cold free.

haha...yeah those simple things can seem like big things though! I love the fact that I don't have to go pee every 10 minutes any more....I can actually hold it for HOURS instead of minutes now! haha
