21 Weeks - Pomegranate

These fruits always make me hungry! Pomegranate is another one of my favorites, but I rarely eat them because they're such a pain in the ass to deal with. C's aunt made a delicious citrus salad for Christmas brunch - oranges, grapefruit, blueberries, and tons and tons of pomegranate seeds. It was amazing. I was really excited when Chobani released their pomegranate yogurt last year, but I actually don't care for it. The seeds give it a weird texture. I like chunks in my yogurt, but not crunch. Anyway.

How far along: 21 weeks

Total weight gain: I think it's still that same 10 pounds

Maternity clothes: Finally broke down and bought two maternity skirts. In the end, it's a good thing that I waited because they were marked down to $25 and then rang up as $15. Score!

Stretch marks: Nope

Sleep: Just the terrible, horrible, no good very bad dreams and the insane discomfort

Best moment of this week: Enjoying the Cannoli that my mom brought me back from NYC.

Miss anything: Beer

Exercise: Running, P90X, Kettlebells. I took the support belt out on Saturday's 11-miler and I think it helped a lot. Hopefully that will keep me running for the next 19 weeks!

Movement: Every night now, always in the same place. Thank you, anterior placenta.

Food cravings: Almond butter and jelly sandwiches. Yum!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope

Happy or moody most of the time: Well, I was called the "health and fitness police" on one of my mom boards last week, because I responded to an ad about diet pills with some (factual!) information on how the company had gotten into trouble for marketing an energy drink to 4 and 5 year old kids. I didn't take that very well and by the end of the discussion "health and fitness police" had turned into "bitch," so... I guess it depends on perspective. For the record, it was only two or three people who thought I should have kept my mouth shut.

Looking forward to: Painting the room and getting organized. I had one plan but now I'm thinking of going in a different (but very similar!) direction after seeing some pictures of a friend's nursery. I guess it depends on whether I'm willing to steal some ideas or not. I'd also like to finally decide on a name. Well, more accurately - I'd like to agree on a name. I'm decided :)


  1. This can't be right.  My mother had me and I don't think she ever had a Pomegranate in her life.

  2. Hooray!  21 weeks!  That's so awesome.  I don't like chobani pomegranate either, very disappointing.  I'm so glad I'm back on my laptop, it's very hard to stalk your blog on my ipad, the text shows up all dark.  But not on my laptop!  Weird.  Congrats on keeping up such a great exercise routine!  Je suis jalouse.  ;)
