Subject:and on a lighter note.
Time:10:21 am.
Brooklyn is 5 months old now. Motherhood was fun until I stopped getting breaks from it. Now it can be hard at times, and great at times.

Subject:Pregnancy Progress
Time:11:06 am.
Mood: okay.

How far along? about 34 weeks

Total weight gain: 30 lbs/14kg

Maternity clothes? Nope , they're all too big still :( 

Stretch marks? No, not yet. might end up with some on my boobs though.

Sleep: 4-5 hours a night, and a 1 hr nap in the day. so god damn tired...

Best moment this week: A fleeting moment of excitement about having a baby

Miss Anything? EVERYTHING! being able to exercise, being able to breathe, socializing with friends, work, my health, sex.

Movement:  It seems to only sleep in 45 min bursts and then it's moving again. it's head-down now, so it can't really move as much, bit its bigger and stronger and impossible to miss the movements!

Food cravings: Carrot sticks, soooooo many carrot sticks, apples, kiwifruit, vegetarian sushi, chocolate bars, and toothpaste.  Had a 3 week phase where I only wanted to eat cupcakes, but only the top half with the icing.

Anything making you queasy or sick: when i eat chocolate cake it comes back up every time for some reason! Real chocolate is fine though. Also, cheese that's not been cooked, eggs are now repulsive, can't stand the smell of meat or fish cooking.  

Labor Signs: None at all, yet.

Symptoms: Where do i begin? Aside from the huge belly - tachycardia, low blood pressure, dizziness, vaso-vagal collapse, breathlessness, nausea, exhaustion, insomnia, back pain, rib pain,

Belly Button in or out? Out. I miss my belly button.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Depressed most of the time, but working my ass off to feel more positive before the baby gets here. 

Looking forward to: Not being pregnant anymore! And the baby shower next weekend.

Subject:I know you've all heard this vent before, so just ignore me while i get it out.
Time:11:02 am.
I chose the wrong career.

The worst thing about being a nutritionist is seeing how many untrained people think they know what they’re talking about on the internet. Just coz you read a book by a doctor (FYI Doctors historically spend only one day of their 7 years of study specifically on nutrition), or read a media report of a piece of research (usually emotive, biased, or unrepresentative of the whole field of research on that topic), doesn’t mean that you now have the answers.

FFS. 

Just coz someone on Tumblr appears to be fit and healthy, doesn’t mean they’re actually qualified to answer your diet/nutrition questions, or that you’ll get the right answer from them. 

~end vent~

Mood: weird.
I felt my baby kick for the first time last night. At first I was really excited, but then it started to weird me out. Its the strangest feeling in the world, having a little human growing inside of you, feels like something out of an alien movie.

Every morning when i wake up and I'm a bit sore, i touch my belly, and then have a momentary panic coz I'd forgotten during the night that i was pregnant. Its so weird, but its also really crappy waking up in a panic every morning.

I just want to say how fucking AWESOME it is to have friends on here who aren't afraid to tell me if they think i am making a decision that might not be best for me. Honesty is hard to come by. I really appreciate you all.

what do you do when everything about someone annoys the shit out of you, and everything they say makes you wana puke, and you just do NOT relate to them in the tiniest amount, but they really fucking like you and think you're great and want to be best buds?
I've been civil, i can't be less than civil, and its not like this girl has done anything bad, or horrible, she just irritates the shit out of me...

Subject:reflections on vomiting
Time:2:33 pm.
So, thanks to my monogastric nutrition paper in which i am currently studying the digestive systems of cats, dogs and horses, I have a much better understanding of why I can't vomit except under SERIOUS life-threatening conditions, where other people can just put their fingers down their throat and bring it all up.

So I always assumed that the vomit response to consuming something bad came directly from the stomach.  Apparently this is not the case at all, and we actually have a "vomit center" in our brains, and so our brains control vomiting ENTIRELY, not our stomachs.

Omnivores and scavengers, like dogs, have a much greater ability to vomit.  Dogs have similar diets to humans, and humans can vomit quite easily too.  Cats less so, and horses, as they are herbivores and usually don't have much need for it, pretty much don't vomit at all.

I figure, since I am vegetarian, & 4th generation vegetarian at that, my genetics must have reduced my 'gag reflex' significantly, since vegetarians are subject to foodborne illness WAY less than non-vegetarians. Also, because i was vegan for so many years while by brain was still developing, and because my family on both sides don't really drink bugger all alcohol, i was probably genetically programmed to have a small "vomit center" in my brain, especially compared to non-vegetarians of people who's ancesteros consumed a lot of alcohol, and ESPECIALLY compared with people who developed bulima while their brains were still developing.

INteresting. well. to me lol.

Subject:cutandpaste
Time:10:31 am.

Recall your favorite subject in high school, and list 3 reasons why you liked it.


I loved English. Mainly because it came to me so easily, and it gave me an excuse to read books and call it homework :) I also liked it because there was no absolute answer - All English is kind of like getting marks for your workings/process in Maths - its not about the end result but the journey you take the reader on to get there.
I also really liked religious studies because it was fascinating and we got to visit Muslim mosks, Jewish Synagogues, cathedrals, buddhist temples etc talk to people of different faiths and learn about the history and their beliefs and how it impacted their daily living.
