burritos for president.

guys. it's hard to blog when you're sick.
it's hard to write when all you do is eat...like, put the burrito down or write something? gosh i'm torn, but i guess i'll have another burrito.

burritos for president!
gluten for VP!

i wish i could say i was strong enough to continue gluten free through this pregnancy, but the hormones won. or should i say, a box of wheat thins won while i was grocery shopping last week.

sure, a few crackers fell out of my mouth because i was trying to see how many thin little treasures from heaven i could fit in my mouth WHILE pushing a cart. it's not as easy as it sounds.

it's as gratifying as it sounds, but not as glamorous as you'd think. when you don't even look pregnant yet, you'll get some stares. but don't let that stop you. no, persevere!
to the drink isle. grab yourself a starbuck's refresher, pop the top, and let the good times roll.

when i went to the doctor that week before, i had already gained 4 lbs and i was only at 8 weeks. this is an accomplishment worthy of praise/judgement. but it happens every time. i don't want to gain 40 lbs, but i do. it's not pretty and i don't look like a model. i'm not "all baby" and it doesn't look like i have a basketball under my shirt.

it looks like i ate a truck.

full of burritos!
man i'm so hungry right now, but we're out of tortillas.

point is, we're really excited for babe number 4. i'm 10 weeks and i clearly have a front butt but no one said this would be pretty. in fact, i just told you what's going to happen. but we get a baby out of the deal, so it's like...whatever. eat for two or ten.

i just felt like i should warn you all.

i'm going to try and "just dance" with my wii in the mornings and see if it will help with the weight gain, but i feel like it's just going to make me more hungry. will it make me eat more?

the real question is how many eggs is too many eggs in the breakfast burrito? these and other questions may never be revealed to us on this earth.

this concludes this random, yet informational post. be inspired for your new year to do something great!

sincerely,
burritos on the brain,
sick as a dog,
but don't worry-i can still eat everything in site,

jami

  3. Congrats - I have been driving 10 extra miles to the next town over to buy groceries because they have a pizza hut with a drive-thru. Justification, baby #2 "needs" a personal pan meatlovers pizza for an afternoon snack. You eat those tacos and you enjoy it!

  5. JAMI NATO!! I don't use instagram because my camera broke on my phone... so, yeah, totally missed the announcement, but CONGRATS!!! We have #3 on the way in June & for some reason being pregnant at the same time as my favorite bloggers makes life better. Woo hoo you guys!

  6. Oh guuurllll. It is a precious little miracle when one feels completely sick all.day.long yet can still eat all the things. Praise Jesus for the second trimester! Hopefully it will come quick for you. I still feel like I'm in that in between stage at 17 weeks where I get a lot of side eyes, but I've taken rubbing my own belly and waddling in public to a whole new level. It feels like the right thing to do. ;)
    Sooo happy for you guys!!

  8. Girlfriend. I'm right there with you. I'm 10 weeks pregnant with #2. I haven't even bothered to do the grocery shopping for weeks now because I know I won't eat the healthy meals I plan. No. I want carbs--ALL.THE.TIME. You know what we've had for dinner two nights in a row? Gravy made from bacon grease and toast. That's right. Gravy.

    Hey! There's always the second trimester. That's what I'm telling myself, anyway.

  9. haha. you're funny(er) when you're pregnant. who knew that was possible. also, i considered texting you several times this break to see if you were interested in seeing my face, but i figured you were pretty sick. it sounds like i would have just been walking between the kitchen and the couch bringing you burritos. gosh, my loss for sure.

  13. In both of my pregnancies, I'd look at my food options & ask myself "but how will that taste coming back up?" Bc it would, undoubtedly always come up. I wish I could say that gave me an edge on willpower- but 75% of the time I shoveled things like catfish and fried biscuits down anyway... So happy for your growing little fam :)

  14. You are hilarious! Thanks for some comic relief even when you're not feeling too good. It is a good thing we all get babies out of the pregnancy deal, they are pretty great!

  15. You crack me right on up! Love how you write!

  16. I think my husband is hoping this makes me want to have #4 someday, but ugh...it's all still too familiar. My last pregnancy I got all kinds of stares for stuffing food in my face whilst pushing 2 children in a grocery cart and shopping for things that didn't make me want to throw up. I bought bbq wings at the deli counter first thing several times and nibbled them off a fork without so much as sharing a crumb with the kids. Sorry your feeling yucky, but good things eventually come to those who wait...in about 9 months (give or take a few weeks). :) Congrats!

  17. Embrace those burritos. Protein! Hey! I ate potatoes every day of my pregnancy. Tator tots, french fries, twice baked, you name it. And luckily for my bunz Leo came early because I was on track to gain 60 pounds. You're a skinny winner before and after the pregnancy so no worries.

  19. Jami,

    Congratulations on your pregnancy. The Baja sauce from Taco Bell is what saved me during one of my pregnancies. Although not pregnant now, I keep a jar full (homemade) readily available at all times.

  20. such great news (about the baby and the burrito eating)! oh what I would give to have a taco bell within an hour radius when I'm pregnant...and maybe even when I'm not. apparently Scotland doesn't smile on burritos. their loss...and mine unfortunately. please eat a burrito for me!

  21. i just came over to check out your kitchen reno, and meandered down to see this one. I can't even. I can't even stop talking about pregnancy food. Let me say more things. BEAN BURRITOS FOR SURE, anything with fake orange cheese, Cheerios (not a healthier organic kind, but the GMO brand only), milkshakes...here's a shameful story: Got a milkshake from the Chikfila drivethru at 9pm after prenatal yoga. Wanted fries, but definitely not chikfila fries. Drove across the street for Jack in the box fries. I forgot all these feelings from past pregnancies, but it's SO REAL. You know.
