White Food Phase

Okay, to truly appreciate this meal you have to know that it was ordered and eaten at a Mexican restraunt. I'll identify the contents for you: Grilled cheese sandwich with a side of mashed potatoes and a pickle. What kind of person would order a plate of food like this? A pregnant person, of course!! Yep, my sister is expecting her first baby! I am so very excited to be an Aunt again!


In keeping with her over achieving ways, Emily has not just been sick during her first trimester, she has been REALLY sick. Like, leaving work for 4 weeks sick. Like, losing 10lbs sick. Like, taking anti nausea medication sick. Sick, sick. By the time my mom and I saw her last week she was beginning to tolerate a bit of food. In fact, I think it is safe to say she'd moved into the white food phase of pregnancy. I remember it well. Plain pasta, bagels, white bread, crackers, mashed potatoes.

It's all worth it I keep telling her. Just wait until you see that beautiful little baby. I know I can't wait. 15 weeks down, 25 to go!

Congratulations to Emily and Jeff. She doesn't know me (I'm another Ballard mom) but I followed the wedding blog. I was that sick too- for a long time- Just know that it will get better eventually. Don't feel bad about whining about how awful you feel- just whine to your closest peeps. The prize at the end is pretty great too!
