Hormones & Cravings
Geh, my hormones seem to be raging lately. In the last 4 days I've been moody and sensitive in a big way. Poor Ryan is being patient, occasionally needing to essentially forget that some of our conversations ever happened. Nothing I say that is negative has any real basis in reality. I'm not always struggling, but once the day goes in that direction I find it hard to put the mood in reverse. I hope this is a quick phase!
In the last 2 weeks I have been craving pancakes. Not just plain pancakes, but any basic breakfast type bread item that can make use of maple syrup. I can be satisfied with waffles, sugar crepes, cornmeal pancakes, blueberry pancakes, anything sweet, bready, and drizzled with sugar or maple syrup. Just writing about it is making my mouth water.
Cravings I've had during this pregnancy:
- Rosemary Lemonade (from the los olivos cafe)
- Hamburgers (the habit)
- Soda (I know, bad!)
- Gummi Cinnamon bears
- Kashi Cinnamon harvest wheat cereal
- Milk (2% organic from trader joes)
- Cinnamon Rolls
- Dried pineapple
- Pancakes, waffles, anything with syrup
... and I'm sure there will be more to add to the list before this is all over.
Ryan and I celebrate our two year anniversary next Tuesday (August 12). We're planning a low key afternoon and evening of time together and I'm really looking forward to it.
