Peanut Butter, My New Best Friend

Creamy, sticky and tasty, what's not to love? Given that my queasiness is now a 24 hour/7 day a week event, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do to get by. Peanut butter seems to be my savior. I figured it's a decent choice because it's protein and does contain some good fat. For lots of pregnant ladies, protein gets to be a touchy subject. I think it's widely agreed that chicken turns stomachs. For me, chicken is always on the do not eat list whereas a big, juicy steak moves on and off the list depending on the day, hour or minute. Last night steak tacos hit the spot but now today the thought of them turns my stomach. I have been agonizing over what I will eat for dinner tonight. Ideally I'd like to be able to just pick something up on my way home. The husband is fishing tonight so I have to pick up QT from my sister's house and then make my way home in time to give myself the PIA shot. By the time I'm done with all that I know that I won't feel like making dinner so a drive-thru seems the way to go but here are the places I pass on my way home: McDonald's (too salty meat and see above for comments about chicken options), Burger King, Wendy's, Dairy Queen, Taco Bell, KFC and Subway. I can't think of a single thing at any of those establishments that I could stomach right now. In fact, just sitting here thinking about the options is making my physically ill. I wonder what is in my freezer......

Tomorrow I have my first appointment with my regular ob/gyn for this pregnancy. I don't think there will be an ultrasound but I'm just excited to see my doctor and to have him know that I'm pregnant. He was very encouraging to me during the last year and a half and it's a comfort to know that some doctors really do care about their patients. Seeing the doctor also means leaving work early and getting home early. Both good things.

I want to like peanut butter, but that turns my stomach much more than even chicken. Good Luck tomorrow!
