Itty Bitty News

by Anjali @ The Picky Eater on September 10, 2013

There have been some strange things happening in The Picky Eater’s kitchen lately…

Like when I went to the grocery store, and came back with this

IMG_20130607_191650

And for weeks, all I wanted was this

amys pizza

Or this, which also sounded delicious

fries

And why did my breakfasts go from fruit-filled-oatmeal-bowls to this?

cheerios

And when did this become my drink of choice?

OJ

More importantly,Β where are all the veggies????

Have I totally fallen off my healthy eating wagon?

Or…

… might my itty bitty news be about something else? πŸ™‚

Surprise!!

The husband and I couldn’t be more excited, the newest addition to The Picky Eater family arrives in January 2014!!

I’m almost 21 weeks along now, and other than the very random non-picky-eater-first-trimester-diet (thank you nausea!) I’m back to my veggie-eating ways and feeling pretty good πŸ™‚

And, the husband and I just found out some other good news….

The husband and I are so excited to share this with all of you — we can’t wait to embark on this next chapter of our lives!! πŸ™‚

Congratulations! So so exciting. And wow, if that’s what cravings look like, I’m in BIG trouble if I ever get pregnant. πŸ™‚

You look amazing. I hope it’s been smooth thus far.

Awww thanks so much Jenn!! Other than the nausea from week 5-11 it has been pretty smooth! And yeah haha the food preferences/cravings were realllly interesting. For me they were almost 100% driven by what would make me the least sick (veggies literally were nauseating!) It was a nice relief to have the nausea dissipate after week 11(ish) so I could feel more back to normal again!

Anjali @ The Picky Eater September 13, 2013 at 4:49 pm

Aw thanks Michelle! And yes! I’m sure I’ll be doing a post about cravings soon πŸ™‚ The first trimester my strategy was just to listen to my body and to eat whatever felt good. Between the fatigue and nausea I couldn’t expect much more of myself! It’s been much easier now that I’m over the 12 week mark!

Sig @ Melbourne Maharani September 17, 2013 at 9:56 am

Congrats!! What wonderful news! I was like that for the first trimester as well and wanted nothing but carbs and salt&vinegar chips. Luckily I didn’t detest veggies too much after that, but definitely had my cravings! Now that my little boy is almost 6 months old and I have TIME, I’m getting back into it as well.

All the best for the pregnancy – it’s definitely one of the most hardest but rewarding things you will ever do xx

Reply

Anjali @ The Picky Eater September 17, 2013 at 11:13 am

Thanks so much! Haha omg I wanted salt+vinegar chips in the first few weeks too! And I normally don’t like salt+vinegar chips so that was super weird haha. Thanks again for all the well wishes!! πŸ™‚

M September 19, 2013 at 4:38 am

Congrats! I’m due with a girl in January too! I still can’t eat many veggies though(only if they are in soup), and I am really missing my spinach salads. Glad your veggie aversions have subsided.

Reply

Anjali @ The Picky Eater September 19, 2013 at 8:31 am

Thank you so much!! And wow! Congrats to you too! That is super cool πŸ™‚ You’ll have to keep me posted on how your pregnancy goes – wouldn’t it be crazy if we had our girls in the same week?? I hope your veggie aversions subside soon!! I was really missing my veggies in the first trimester so I know how you feel!
