Must you always feed...

I've noticed I go through these spurts in the pregnancy where hunger pretty much consumes me. Yeah, being pregnant you're usually a little more hungry. But it seems like every few weeks, I'll go through these phases where no matter what I eat I become starving again ten minutes later. Even if I eat a well balanced dinner of meat, a potato or pasta and a vegetable. Doesn't matter, still hungry minutes later. It's really frustrating because half the time I do not want to eat anything more or go searching the kitchen for something to hold over my hunger for another ten minutes. Maybe the baby is having a growth spurt? Maybe that's when I get extra hungry like this? Which, I will do anything for my baby, so if she's hungry I will eat for her. But sometimes I literally just want to cry because I'll have just eaten a well balanced dinner and then minutes later it's like I haven't eaten in days. I mean, last night I had to make scrambled eggs at midnight. I do try to eat a piece of fruit or peanut butter toast or a few pretzels when this crazy hunger strikes. But it doesn't help any! I feel like I'm constantly "feeding!" Which reminds me of a funny line from the movie Juno where her friend said to her something like "God! Must you always feed??!!"

I had my ear appointment with my primary doctor today, which was pretty much a waste of $30.00. I have issues with visiting doctors offices and not getting any "real" information. I know, it was good to just get my ear checked out in case I had like a nest of bugs growing in there or something. But as strange as it may sound I kind of wish he looked in there and found something wrong just so it could be fixed! He did find some scar tissue (which he said could have been from my childhood ear infections and tubes I had put in)  but overall he said my ears looked great. No wax problems. No infection. He said I could have had an infection last week when I had the severe pain but obviously it had healed. But my question to him was "Well why can I barely hear then?" To which he replied there could be some fluid hiding out but that if my hearing doesn't get better in a week to go see an ENT doctor. Great, another $30.00. I know I should be grateful to even have health insurance, but the $30 still hurts. So I guess I'm just going to have to wait it out a few days and see what happens. I might just go ahead and make the appointment because, why wait really? If I can't hear well, there must be something going on...

I'm having issues parting with our Christmas tree. I put away all the other decorations, but I sort of wish I could leave the tree up until all the needles falls off. It's just so pretty. I always get a little depressed once Christmas is over. I think Christmas should be like a week long holiday. We'll probably take it down this weekend. I want my husband to take a belly pic of me in front of it. And maybe...just maybe...I'll post it on here. No promises though...

Not that it's anyones goal in life on here to see one of my belly pics :)

Belly pic sounds good! :)
Totally agree with the Christmas tree thing! I put everything away including the ornaments except the tree its just so pretty at night!(and its white this year so I am pretending its a "winter tree" so I can leave it up longer!) lol

Ok, I just read this while having my usual before-bed meal/snack, lol! I warn you, if you plan on nursing, the eating non-stop doesn't end! My husband constantly asks me if I ever stop eating...nope! And, by the way, I'm my pre-pregnancy size so the nursing is definitely keeping the pounds off!

Sorry to hear about the ear appt - I would definitely make an appt with an ENT doc. My primary care dr never saw the issue with my ear either. The ENT guy knew what it was right away.

Yes, belly pic! DO IT!!

Belly pic! Belly pic! Belly pic!

Is your ear ache related to your old? Hope you feel better soon.

Belly pic!

Samantha said...

Yes, belly pic!

Liz said...

I am right there with ya about not getting info from doctors. I paid my damn co-pay now give me something useful! I am however grateful that you don't have a nest of anything up in there.

You definitely need a belly pic in front of the tree.

Girl, I'm only 7 weeks and I am already eating ALL THE TIME! Right after I eat I will have that feeling of emptiness!!! I am going to be HUGE before this is over, but like you said, I will do anything for this little nugget, even if it is resembling a whale!;)

I want to see a belly pic!!:)

Rebecca said...

I'd love to see your belly picture. Helps me think positive about my upcoming IVF.

Yeah, we are about to take our tree down tonight or tomorrow. So sad to see it down too. But it just means I'll have to decorate for Valentine's Day!

Kristen said...

Your belly is ADORABLE!! You should totally post it :)

And I am totally with you on the sadness of taking down the tree... I don't take mine down until Ben starts insisting it comes down...lol I have a feeling that will be this weekend too, but I would keep it up year round if I could!
