In Which Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds is My Salvation at 2 a.m.

I dawdled going to bed last night. Going to bed is just so boring. Didn't even take my shower until 1 am. Then I was SOOO hungry, and I heard that when you are hungry, baby is hungry, and if you don't eat, then you are basically starving your unborn child, which of course always guilts me into eating. Which I should really do any time I am hungry. Yeah. Anyway, so a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats for me at 2 am. Then of course I slept deeply only until 6, when I woke up starving again. But this time I squashed the guilty feelings because there was no freaking way I was going to get up for the day after 4 hours of sleep!! So I slept fitfully until it was time to be up around 8. Blech. Is the baby having a growth spurt or something? Seriously. I cannot be waking up every four hours just to eat. It's too weird.

We had Brian and Renee over for dinner last night. I made Balsamic Poached Chicken with Roasted Potatoes & Asparagus. Thanks, Real Simple. It was delicious, and easy. But you don't really need the sauce - I used chicken tenderloins, and they came out perfectly juicy. Renee is 10 weeks along. Yay! She seems pretty confident that it's a girl (she has a 3-year-old son). I hope it is, because then her baby and Baby Girl will only be about 5-6 months apart. And they can be friends. Ha ha

Really struggling with motivation at work today...

Oh and oops - Belated congrats to Isabel. She had her baby boy on Tuesday. Yay!!

I don't know if that's true about the whole when you're hungry the baby is starving thing...but it used to freak me out too. Plus, I read somewhere that it takes an hour or something after you eat for baby to receive nourishment....so I'd freak out doubly because I thought baby was starving for at least an hour after I ate. Pregnancy is so stressful.
