One of the sad things that comes with not blogging often is I've stopped taken photos. I never took photos solely for the blog, but having a blog seems to work well as a reminder. I've felt better in the last week (pregnancy week 13) I'm still not 100% and do feel sick everyday but I'm not throwing up and my energy is slowly coming back, you'll still find me in bed by 9pm but I'm getting basic jobs done around the house. The first trimester really kicked my butt, I feel like I'm coming out of a haze. At some stage I'll try and do YouTube pregnancy videos, and weekly updates here on the blog.
I feel like my tummy grew a lot this week although this photo is taken at the end of the day when bloating takes over any form of baby in there, in the morning I have a smaller bump.
For the last few months Harper has been fussy, He wont touch vegetables other than mashed potato, and I have trouble hiding them in foods. I'm slowly finding ways of getting him to eat vegetables and still serve them with ever meal. He might have turned his nose up to this green smoothie had I not mentioned it was Monster milk. We even ate some Pea and ham soup which would have been a struggle had it not been Monster brains. You get my point, sometimes you need to think like a kid and if you're lucky occasionally it works.
Vegan Monster Milk
I cup of soy milk, or your preferred milk
2 handfuls of baby spinach
1 frozen banana
1 dried date for sweetness (optional)
Blend it up until smooth and watch you fussy preschooler drink it and want more.
This space has been quiet over the last couple of months as I've struggled to make it through the first trimester. I had grand ideas of enjoying my last pregnancy, this pregnancy had other ideas and I had quickly forgotten the power of morning sickness.
So here we are, our last child. I'm super excited, slightly scared, and somewhat sad. But that's a story for another day.
