I just poured myself a glass of milk and thought how obsessed I was with milk when I was pregnant. I did not even realize it, but I'd come home with 4 half gallons of that skim plus milk when it was on sale. I must have had 2 cups of milk a day, minimum.
Then there was Dove soap. I washed my hands like it was my business tons of times a day. I brought Dove soap to the bathroom at work so I could use it there.
GU - I ate GU when I was doing 3 mile runs, 9 mile runs, 12 mile runs. It didn't matter how long the run was. If I was running, GU was involved. My favorite was the chocolate mint seasonal flavor, followed by vanilla bean then chocolate outrage.
Butter and cheese. This lasted a little past Nick being born, too. English muffins slathered with butter with a slice of american cheese on top - not melted. It would get warm and soft and just be delicious. Toast with butter. Cheese on everything. I wonder if Nick will be a butter and cheese lover when he grows up.
When Bill's mom was pregnant with him, she ate peanut butter everyday(I do that pregnant or not). He loves peanut butter. And my mom eats chocolate all the time - and I HAVE to have a piece everyday. It makes you wonder if your eating habits get passed down!
Sometimes I kind of miss being pregnant, but then I think, holy crap, how can I be pregnant AND have a little one running around? How is that going to go down? Looking back, being pregnant with #1 was probably a cake walk compared to what it will be for #2... #3? Oh man. Scary. I kind of wish we had to go through it ONE time and then we could order the rest of our family. What do you think? I guess it is part of life and a neat experience.
What were your weird habits while pregnant?
Updates on various things:
I have dropped the ball on calorie counting. I try to think about it in my head but I just can't sit at the computer and type in everything I am eating. It takes too long and I don't have time!
Speaking of time, I feel like I cannot balance things! My plan on Tuesday was to get up and run before Nick woke up. Then he woke up at 11pm and was up until 12:30am! So I had to bag that. Today I did it - I got up and made it back into the pool. It felt good - but man, you lose that conditioning so quickly!! I was really praying Nick wouldn't wake up in the night last night - he didn't. Woo!
