BH stands for Braxton Hicks contractions. I felt them all day yesterday, which was something new to me. It’s when your baby bump tightens up and is really hard for a minute before relaxing again. They don’t hurt, but yesterday I seriously felt them the entire day, which was something new to me. I actually timed how far apart they were, but after realizing that they were inconsistent and painless, I decided I’d just take it easy for the day… and I drank a ton of water, so it definitely wasn’t a dehydration issue. Guess my body is just preparing for the big event!
A 34 week belly shot as of yesterday, next to my new sign 🙂
Now to the grub…
A summery mix of Chobani peach yogurt, a peach, blueberries, 1/4 cup raw oats and chia seeds. Did you know you can eat oats raw? You can, and they’re better (IMO) than overnight oats… but I know, I promised I’d try overnight oats again and I will… one day 😉
I had a lot of little leftovers to use up in the fridge, so I made a pseudo-jambalaya with leftover brown rice, a veggie sausage, okra from my CSA, onion, leftover diced tomatoes from at-home Indian and some Cajun spices!
It was actually incredibly filling and I couldn’t eat all the veggie sausage pieces.
I took about a 30 minute nap and when I woke up, I felt I should continue to the toddler afternoon trend, and for ‘snack time’ I enjoyed peanut butter and honey smothered on whole wheat with a small glass of organic 2% milk.
A simple meal of a mixed green salad, tomato, onion and feta, topped with a delicious Wasabi Ginger Soy dressing. So delicious!!
We also ate homemade pizza, from defrosted dough. I was short of veggies, so we topped in with turkey pepperoni and shredded mozzarella. I had 2 pieces.
An early dinner meant my snack tooth kicked in a few hours later. I quickly satisfied it with vanilla ice cream, peanut butter chips and blueberries. YUM.
What is your favorite ice cream or fro-yo topping?
I’m loving peanut butter chips lately! And I can’t wait to be able to enjoy some TCBY in my life again once Baby D arrives!
