Shame and McDonald's

I've kind of fallen off the wagon.

Almost a year ago, I swore off any meat that was cheap and easy.  I changed our grocery budget to accommodate healthy, organic meat and dairy.  I ate fish when we went out, and I only ate vegetarian when I had to eat fast food.

You would think that I would be even more dilligent now that I am pregnant.  (Yeah, me, too!!)

That is not the case.

I just ate 2 meals at McDonald's.  I could not function until I had a cheeseburger, nuggets and fries.  I am gross.  I wouldn't let Cale have any...but yet I subjected my growing baby to this grease-fest.  And then I had a Twix bar and a Nestle Crunch Bar.

I am hungry all the time.  Like.... I. Can't.  Get.  Enough.  Food.  In.  My.  Belly.

I didn't have this problem with my first pregnancy.  I don't know what to do.  Don't tell me to stop, or I will cry and tell you not to judge me.  I will tell you that I'll go on Weight Watchers in October.  I will tell you that I deserve this since I puked my guts out the first 4 months.

But don't take away my nuggets.  I couldn't take it.

I think that is standard food for growing a little girl... Julie couldn't eat enough Wendy's hamburgers with Lola and everything worked out just fine. The baby is probably craving extra calories to grow her enormous brain.

Anyway, since it is a girl, she will have the rest of her life to shun all the foods you treated her to when she was in your belly.

Plus, you have to eat something to cope with the fact that you are living in Oklahoma City instead of Tulsa :-)

We miss having you kids around. The pool is waiting for you when you make it back up here.

I just discovered your blog from a link on facebook. I have been laughing my butt off for 20 minutes now, but this is my favorite post because I, too, can't stop eating! I puked for the first 4 months and now I just can't stop! If I do, I will puke, which makes no sense at all, but it's how my crazy body is working this time around. Hang in there girl and don't worry about it. I think our bodies are trying to make up for the first depriving trimester. Besides, if your body thought it was bad, the crazy nose would turn it away or the stomach would send it back where it came from. So it must be good... :)
