Food Aversion

Well, I guess I should first say that we received a surprise a few weeks ago. It seems that God thinks we are such amazing parents that we should have another baby. That's right folks, I'm pregnant...about 8 weeks or so. It came as a total shock to us, but now that we are over the inital terror we are getting quite excited. I believe all the family has been told, so it should be safe to blog about. If any of you reading are family and didn't already know....sorry!

So, that being said...I hit my first food aversion a few minutes ago. Easy and I, in an effort to be more health consious, have stopped buying white bread and instead keep whole grain and wheat product in the house. I got hungry for lunch and made a beautiful turkey sandwich with my favorite olives and a nice soft wheat kaiser roll. Unfortunately, when I put it in my mouth and chewed....well, let's just say it didn't work. I managed to swallow the first bite, but number two didn't have a chance. It's amazing how the body can reject something so completely!

The truth is that I wanted a sandwich on a white kaiser roll, but since we don't keep such things in the house I went with my healithier alternative. I wish I could say it was the turkey, or olives, or chees, or mayo, but it wasn't. It the taste of that wonderful healthy WHEAT!! I'm literally sitting here looking at this great sandwich that I can't eat. Ah, the joys of pregnancy. My plate now looks like that of my 3-year-old....every Cheetoe gone and a healthy sandwich just sitting there.

I guess the good news is for those who make the wonderful starchy white bread products. Looks like they'll be getting a few of my dollars over the coming months......Anyone want my sandwich?

Don't want your sandwich. Try just eating the ingredients without any bread at all. I know, I know. It's not really a sandwich that way, but if you want to be healthy it IS an alternative. :-)Do a turkey roll-up!

Hope this will be the only aversion you encounter for a while!

Love you! Take care of yourself and my next grandchild!

Yeah!!! Congratulations!!! God is good. My little girl hasn't stopped nursing long enough for me to give another baby a thought! You and your family are in our prayers. Lots of love!

Wow, that's so exciting, Sarah! I can't wait until Seth and I can have kids, but we're definitely waiting until I'm out of college. I'm so happy for you! Congrats!

Oh boy. Good luck with that. Kari and I originally thought we would have 3, but having 2 has made us rethink that. We'll see how we feel in another year or two, though.

Seriously, congratulations, and the best of health to you!
