Bon Appetit Pizza

I received the opportunity recently to try a new product a pizza by Bon Appetit.  I will start by saying my boys are huge pizza fans but they are super picky about frozen pizzas.  Some frozen pizzas I will agree just aren't very good.  We chose the pepperoni and pesto variety.  We were able to find it at our local Publix for a decent price of $6.99.

My kids loved the pizza and ate an entire pizza to themselves.  I kept hearing more from my 2 year old and my 6 year old was concerned with how many pieces his brother had so he could make sure he was going to get more as well.  The pepperoni according to my 6 year old was a little spicy but he said it was good and it didn't deter him from eating more.  When I asked him for his review, he said "It is yummy!!!  Is there more?

That disgusting glucola

I am currently taking the one hour glucose test and just had to drink that disgusting glucola Orange concoction.  You would think in all the years of doing this test they would have come up with something more enjoyable to drink.  I read that it is equal to a package and a half of Oreo cookies-sugar content.  I'll take that option please.  My little girl though is kicking like crazy.  I have been craving sweets with this pregnancy so she is happy as a clam.  For anyone who knows me it is well known knowledge that I am not a sweets person.  I drink water only and never eat sweets.  I am more of a salty food lover.  That is why I am doubtful of the accuracy of a test like this.  Of course my body is going to have a challenging time processing sugar when it never gets it.  I also don't eat red meat and you better believe if I eat it I will have difficulty processing it as well.  The logic is flawed.  Hopefully this will be the last I will have to think of this test and I have very positive results.  I'll let you know.

I really thought by this point in the pregnancy I would have a lot more energy.  I am still waiting for that illusive nesting energy to kick in.  The Orlando summer heat doesn't help the situation either.  Going outside makes me tired just getting the boys in the car.  Exercise this pregnancy besides an occasional walk has been pretty non existent as well.  I feel like I am hot everywhere I go.  Church the past couple of weeks has been super hot as well and I know the air is on but it makes me question if it is really turned on.  My little girl is very active and she likes to kick especially at night time.  So the initial falling asleep can be quite challenging.  With my first pregnancy I had naps in great supply.  My second pregnancy I would nap every once in awhile.  This pregnancy naps are just not possible because especially my 2 year old want to come over to me if he sees me asleep no matter what is going on or how busy he is.  Don't worry I am fully aware that it isn't going to get any better with a newborn.  How do you handle a lack luster day when you have no energy?

Sugar Test

I am in the phase of pregnancy that I personally dread the most.  The horrible gestational diabetes test.  Fortunately this is the early one with minimal blood draws but to me that is still bad.  I get extreme anxiety with blood draws.  I know that it is one of those necessary things but it doesn't make it any easier.  My last pregnancy I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and I was only one point over normal.  It was not a pleasant experience with blood testing before and after meals it was my own personal hell.  So I am hoping that everything comes back normal this time.  The extra stress last pregnancy was almost too much for me.  Both my son and I never had diabetes or issues and after speaking to my current high risk doctor she felt I was incorrectly diagnosed.

Crazy Camp Week

This week has been so busy!!!  So busy in fact that I just realized my last post on the blog was on Saturday.  This is insane crazy for me because I am pretty consistent with my posts.  My reason for my lack of awareness is my oldest is doing Karate Camp this week from 8:30-3 and then he is doing VBS from 6:30-8:45 so it has been a lot of running around but fortunately he is having so much fun.  I am going to be back in the swing of things soon.  In the meantime don't forget to enter our 2 current contests we have going on.

Learning to Make it to the Restroom....

This pregnancy is the most challenging one yet for one very key thing.  Whenever I sneeze or laugh hard out comes the pee.  I feel like I have no control over my bladder.  I used to have a bladder of steel and now not so much.  I have been doing my kegels but still the pee comes.  The crazy thing is I never wake up in the middle of the night to pee like many pregnant ladies do.  I feel like I might need to invest in some adult diapers to get me through the rest of the pregnancy.  There is nothing worse that being away from home and sneezing and then realizing oh no!!!!  I hope that the bladder issues don't continue past the pregnancy but you never know.

Swim Lesson Update

The excited feeling has worn off.  Everyday he has extreme anxiety about going to his swim lessons.  The crazy thing is he is doing so good with swimming but there is one move he is having some difficulty with and apparently this is all it takes.  There is normally crying before the lesson and during.  It just makes the whole process really difficult.  It is one of those things I feel horrible for making him go especially since he is so upset but I know this is a necessity with a pool in our backyard.  I am hoping these final days of lessons will make it click for him.  The crazy thing is this is how I felt about swimming when I was younger I was terrified of water and swimming.  I didn't like water in my eyes.  I didn't fully learn to swim until I met my husband and I don't even go underwater partly due to water ear infections.  I hope my other children have an easier time swimming.

I Need Shoppers Anonymous

Since finding out that I am having a girl I have been actively shopping for all the cute girl clothes available.  It is amazing how many options and adorable outfits there are for girls. I have been really liking Persnickety and Matilda Jane.  These are both pretty pricey brands but I want to share with you guys some great ways to get some sweet girls clothing at a discount.  I have been frequenting the BST pages for each of the brands I like on Facebook.  As long as you are patient you will see some really great deals.  It does amaze me how much some of these sellers are asking for used clothing.  I also had some luck with consignment sites like threadup and moxie jean.  I am going to try to slow down on the shopping now though.  Otherwise I think I might need an intervention.  It is so much different shopping for little girls than my 2 boys and I think that adds to some of my impulsive shopping.  Boys clothes are pretty cut and dry Shirt, shorts, pants, and shoes.  I think it has finally set in that I am expecting a little girl.  I was so fully expecting a boy this time as well I didn't let myself think of having a girl so it took a couple of weeks for it to set in.  Do you have some favorite places to shop for your little one?  Do you find yourself getting a little carried away by shopping?
