For my lack of sleep last night, I sure have had energy today! And I seem to be pretty much back on East Coast time.
Cue the 4pm snack:
I ate up yogurt with Jam According to Daniel and Saint Cupcake granola after my doctor’s appointment.
The appointment was just routine with nothing new to report.
Blood pressure good. Pee good. Weight good. Fundal height measuring on time at 28 weeks. Baby’s heartbeat pumping to 144 bmp.
Doctor said my glucose test and blood work were perfect – she didn’t even mention the low iron. I brought it up and she told me to add that third vitamin and eat real [iron-rich] food – that I was not low enough to need a separate iron supplement. Glad we were on the same page! I asked about my shooting nerve pain too and she said it was just related to stretching and was not concerned. My yoga teacher said it was likely a nerve pinched between my fascia while I was twisting in my sleep – that makes sense and matches where and what I felt.
I headed downtown for yoga this evening and found the scene like a Friday night – so many people out and about! New restaurant!!!
Yoga was grand, per usual:
And then guess what we did!?
Thai take-out! The fridge is empty and Matt and I debated a garden salad, but we have little protein in the house (and I wasn’t in the mood for beans or canned fish). Plus he was working at a new market we were invited to, so dinner wouldn’t have been ready until 8:00 – too late. I’ve been craving curry for a few weeks now, so I suggested Thai. We used to get it all the time in college! Green curry was my favorite. So Matt ordered it from Downtown Thai while I was in yoga and I picked it up on my walk home! [Damn, take-out is expensive!]
Very glad we got it though because either coincidence or psychological because I was carrying my dinner, I was STARVING when I walked in the door. I think I would have just dove into a bowl of cereal if we hadn’t gotten this!
We ended up getting a Tofu Green Curry and a Red Beef Curry, both with brown rice.
The Tofu Green was actually kind of disappointing – the tofu was very, very fried and hollow and the curry a bit weak on the green spectrum. The Beef Red was really good though! However, both sauces were kind of curdled. Not my favorite experience with Thai Still tasted good though, and I appreciated the brown rice option.
I am hoping a protein-packed handful of almonds before bed tonight will keep me happily dreaming away tonight, as I suspect hunger has something to do with my sleeplessness. That and just being totally uncomfortable!
