This is gonna be a short post because I’m sure I’ll have more to say this afternoon- today is ultrasound day! LittleRainbowBug or I will do a proper 20 weeks post later, but for now I just wanted to say that pregnancy is weird and is kind of messing with my mind.
Specifically, I’ve been a lifelong vegetarian. I first tried meat in high school. I have eaten bacon at several points because let’s be honest, it’s delicious. But overall I’d still call myself a vegetarian. Until Wednesday.
On Wednesday I had an inexplicable craving for a BLT, and I knew the soy bacon was not going to cut it. So I went to Subway and got what I would really call a veggie sub with bacon (it had way more than lettuce and tomato). I had an upset stomach later but overall felt it was worth it. Yesterday I went to the coffee shop on campus, intending to get a muffin, but somehow ended up with a bacon and egg bagel sandwich. Then last night was the real kicker. I was planning to have popcorn for dinner, but I knew Rachel needed more than that so I heated up some leftover pulled pork. Something, I don’t know what, enticed me to try it. It wasn’t bad! It didn’t make me gag like meat (besides bacon) has mostly done up to this point. So I made myself a little bowl of pulled pork and mashed potatoes and ate all of it and was perfectly happy with no upset stomach later. Popcorn was forgotten.
It was weird, y’all, and really of all meats to suddenly eat with no problem, pork??? Chicken I could have seen. Fish even (I’m going to experiment with fish tonight). But pork? Really?
Whatever. My midwives will be thrilled. 😉
