In other news, I am still experiencing periods of nausea. The all-day nausea is gone, thank goodness, though I still have periods of up to five hours per day where I feel nauseated.
Luckily I spent some really nice quality time with all of my nieces this weekend. On Saturday I actually babysat my niece Ella for two hours all by myself!!!
This is a big deal, since she's barely one year old and still in diapers. I don't have much experience changing diapers, and I can't say that it's not just as disgusting as everyone says.
I also got to see my niece Riley play in a soccer game on Saturday. That basically consisted of me watching a handful of little girls stumble into one another. It was just as fun as it sounds:-)
After the soccer game, in an effort to spend quality time with my mom, I agree to go with her to Kohl's. Let me just reiterate that I hatehatehate shopping. I did find some entertainment, however, in this new line of jeans from Lee.
And, to clarify, these are not maternity jeans.
Since I did absolutely no work all weekend, today I hate to buckle down and "do it to it." So, per usual, I motivated myself with a tasty lunch:
Oh and this:
Weird, right? This little vegetarian ate turkey meatloaf for lunch today. Not to worry, PETA-people; I don't imagine that this will become a regular thing, but it does feel less ED-like and more healthy to occasionally, especially while pregnant, eat some chicken or turkey. You won't be seeing any hamburgers or bacon on NCK regardless, though. Those little pigs and cows just seem too friendly for me to nosh on them. (Yes, chickens and turkeys are being punished because they seem less human-like.)
A couple of hours later, while working with David at a coffee shop in town, I also had this little treat:
That's a vegan, gluten-free apple cinnamon bread. See? It's still me, Nikki! I sometimes feel silly ordering gluten-free stuff though. It's kind of like ordering pad thai at a Thai restaurant; you feel a little bit cliché to be ordering it, but sometimes it's just the best thing on the menu, right?
*Are you gluten-free? Do you eat anything gluten-free? What do you _really_ think about people who are gluten-free?
