This weekend totally flew by, but it was great, and I’m already ready for a nap this morning.
The baby front is still going well. 17 weeks feels good and I’m trying to enjoy it while it lasts. They say that you get an energy boost during the second trimester, and I sometimes feel extra energetic, but mostly I am appreciative of not feeling like the walking zombie I was during the first trimester.
Baby is now about the size of a small onion! That seems similar to an avocado to me, which was the size before this.
I also read that you are supposed to have an increased appetite during the second trimester. Um, that has been the case since week 8 or so! If my appetite increased more than it did then, I would be constantly inhaling food. It’s actually allowing me to enjoy some of my normal foods again. I ate a sweet potato skin the other day. Major step forward. I usually eat the skin of my potatoes, but they have been grossing me out for several weeks.
I recently got sofritas aka tofu at Chipotle and it is delicious and full of protein, which I seem to need always.
This weekend was stuffed full, because I had to get all my shopping and housework done on Saturday.
I brought back a bunch of books from my mom’s house and filled up my bookshelf. Turns out I rebought a bunch of books that I didn’t even realize I already had at her house. Woops. At least it’s only the ones I loved enough to buy twice.
I finished reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I found this cute collection’s edition at Target. I love the illustrations in the front and back covers.
We went to Hershey Park for their Military Appreciation Day. It was wonderful, even though I did not want to get up early and come back to work this morning after all the walking we did. I did not take pics of all the food, but there were crab fries, Dippin Dots, and Red Robin sweet potato fries consumed and all were amazing.
I did not ride any of those rides – nope, not at all. I did ride the cars ride that takes you around a little track. We managed to break the ride and somehow disable the car and started rolling backwards down a hill, but luckily no one was behind us and the turn in the track eventually stopped us XD. We had to get a worker to come rescue us and restart out little lawn mower motor car.
Hope you had a great weekend and your Monday is not too rough!
