Ahead Of The Curve

March 1, 2012

Boy am I feeling run down today. I had about 2 hours of nausea this morning. I’m unsure if it’s pregnant, jet lag or possible sickness coming on.

My cure? An hour walk. I called my mom and she said “Shouldn’t you be on the couch?” But you know  – walking (slowly) almost always makes me feel better, and when I got home lunch sounded good.

Our fridge is pretty bare, but I found just enough to make something good: eggs, avocado and jalapenos in a whole wheat tortilla! This tasted WONDERFUL to my palate today!

Tons of messy, drippy grapefruit on the side that saturated a whole napkin!

I lent Karen my car for a few days, so I’m carpooling with her to pick hers up and then off to fill the fridge for dinner. Two things that are definitely on my grocery list: sharp cheddar cheese and avocado!

See the curve!?

Sorry to hear you were feeling so run down!! I’m glad the walk and lunch made things better :) You look great for 13 weeks! Oh and eggs with avocado is one of my favorite combinations :)

Reading your posts where you have eaten eggs always makes me wish that I liked eggs. They look so good. They sound so good but… yech! Glad they work for you though.

I’ve never put jalapenos in my eggs. This sounds like exactly what I want for dinner!

Hope you feel better soon, Kath.

Looking good… belly and body wise.
Hope the nausea will slow down and completely stop sometime soon, you never know when it will strike next!

It’s definitely there! Mine was the same way–last week, it just popped, and now all my co-workers say it’s 100% obvious that I’m pregnant. Such a weird feeling.

There’s a definite baby baby bump!!
Eggs + avocado sound AMAZING!

Ooh, you’re definitely starting to show! That’s exciting :) Good job for walking even though you were nauseous. If I’m not feeling well, all I want to do is lie down, but inevitably the only thing that actually helps is moving around. Do you refrigerate your avocados when they’re ripe? We never had them in my house growing up and I’ve only purchased them on my own a handful of times, so I’m not exactly sure how to handle them.

I do refrigerate them after cutting into them. They go bad on the quicker side

A dose of fresh air and exercise always helps me feel better! Glad it worked for you! Definitely see a baby bump! Very exciting!

Cute baby belly Kath! I think it’s so interesting to hear what women crave when they’re pregnant. Have fun stocking up on cheese and avocados – maybe some Mexican inspired cuisine is on the cards? ;) Have a great afternoon!

You look amazing Kath…I can see the bump! I love your new Baby KERF website, btw. I’ve been checking it out daily and have been enjoying reading about your pregnancy. It’s great that you can be so open about this personal yet wonderful time in your life! I can’t wait to read more!!!!! All the best to you and Matt!

I’ve been looking for new breakfast ideas, and that egg/avocado/tortilla creation has me inspired to try something similar. Minus the jalepenos, though – Hubby loves them, but I’m not a fan…

Cute picture!! Lunch looks yummy!

25 Carina March 1, 2012 at 3:07 pm

I need to learn to effortlessly create variety like you do with your food! I’ve never seen anyone else make grapefruit look appealing…much less next to an egg/jalapeno concoction. Congrats on the growing bumpity-bump!

Reply

26 Anna @ On Anna's Plate March 1, 2012 at 3:09 pm

It’s so funny how you feel like you definitely have a bump in those early-ish weeks…and then by the end, you’re like, “What was I THINKING?!? I didn’t have a bump at all!!!” Now that I’m nearing the end, I look at my twenty-week pic now, when I felt so big and legitimately “pregnant looking,” and I look so small, haha. Regardless, you look great!

27 Kathryn March 1, 2012 at 3:10 pm

I’m 13 weeks preggers and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve eaten a wrap with avocado. My current favorite is chicken, a little mayo, lettuce and LOTS of avocado on a whole wheat wrap! mmmmmm.

Sorry you aren’t feeling well today… hope the sunshine helped? I always think it’s fun when my meals are similar to yours–today I too had a wrap with avocado and a grapefruit!

You’ve definitely got a little bump going this week! So cute. Sorry you’re feeling like crap though. It comes with the territory although I bet a little bit of jet-lag has something to do with it too. I always feel icky after traveling and I’m not even preggers. And on that note, I think I’m going to go make myself an egg sandwich. Your pictures totally put me in the mood. Have a good afternoon!

13 weeks is when I ran my half marathon . . . and it’s also when I first noticed the very slightest bit of curve in my stomach. Very exciting times :) Also, I had wicked bad morning sickness until like 16 weeks and eggs . . . EGGS . . . they were awesome. I think the more protein you eat, the better. At least in my case. <3

I can’t get enough of avacado right now. Even when I don’t think it tastes particularly good, I still WANT AVACADO. It is so strange.

48 Tina March 1, 2012 at 5:20 pm

Can definitely see the curve! I hope you’re feeling better soon. It’s amazing and crazy what an effect pregnancy can have on the body. Just do whatever you feel like doing and eat what sounds good. I suffered nausea almost the entire time with my second daughter and only gained a pound (sounds crazy, I know). She weighed 7 lbs. 6 oz. and will be twelve soon :).

Yum! Your grapefruit just made me crave citrus so I’m currently enjoying a juicy orange. Love the baby bump – can’t wait to watch it grow. :)

Sorry you weren’t feeling well – hopefully the nausea doesn’t come back. I love that you went for a walk instead of just doing nothing. You look great with a little baby bump!

58 Michelle (Better with Berries) March 1, 2012 at 8:51 pm

I used a walk as a cure for feeling crummy today too! I’d had a headache for a couple days straight. It was so nice out that I told my seventh period class that we were going to walk around the track for half of the period. It worked like a charm – no more headache!

Cute bump!!! Kath, I got through 8 months of pretty awful nausea during my twin pregnancy by walking/running – getting outside. Many people told me to lie down and relax but it just didnt feel good, deep breaths of fresh air was what felt best!
