I’ve been trying so hard to get everything in order before Toasty comes. I can’t believe I’m already 37 weeks. Like they don’t worry at all if I go into labor any more 37 weeks. It has gone fast! I’ve always struggled with breakfast but as I’ve been trying to use all my time and energy to it’s fullest I keep finding myself looking at the clock and it being 1 pm and I’ve only had juice. I really need some easy and satisfying breakfast options.

Super Yummy and Easy Breakfast Burritos at Rae Gun Ramblings  #RedboxBreakfast #PMedia #ad

I’ve tried Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches before and liked them ok so I was intrigue when I was given the chance to test out the Jimmy Dean Meat Lovers Breakfast Bowls. I’m not going to lie I was a little wary about the microwavable nature of it all and eggs to boot but I went into it with an open mind and I can honestly say I really like these. Like, I’ve already returned to Walmart and picked up 3 more boxes after finishing my trial one liked it.

It’s quite a generous portion size. A whole bowl is a bit more than I can finish and I eat more than most of my friends. My favorite way to have it is to put half of it in a tortilla with some avocado and a side of fruit. It’s the perfect amount and I can have it ready to eat super fast. I just throw the left overs in a ziplock bag for another day. I get two meals and most importantly I’m not ravenous and eating cookies and anything in site at 2pm when i realize I’m starving.

And for a wee prego update since it’s been a few weeks. Here’s a sneak peek at our maternity photo shoot that my good friend Debra of Joyous Moments Photography did. I’ll be sharing more pics later this week :)

  • I’ve been going to weekly appointments and everything seems good and on target.
  • I’ve been eating less (as I mentioned) forgetting breakfast (hopefully that will change now) and then just feeling full faster. Plus I think I’ve got some heart burn going on so maybe we’ll have a baby with some hair! Even so, somehow I’m still gaining lots of weight. The doctor keeps calling it water weight ummm okay let’s hope I guess.
  • My showers are over and we’ve bought the last of the stuff we for sure want before Toasty is here. It’s really weird to see baby gear all around our house. I did my first of what I’m sure will be many many loads of baby laundry.
  • With the help of a friend and MANY hours my upstairs (the studio and bedroom area, basically where I spend 90% of my home time) has been totally reorganized and sorted and room has been made for Toasty both in my work area and in the ginormous closet (it has a window, it’s totally and upgrade from what Harry Potter lived in).
  • Toasty is still a crazy moving machine. He loves to camp out right under my ribs. I don’t believe the whole “they slow down” near the end thing.
  • I didn’t think it was possible but I feel even hotter. I’ve been outside in a t-shirt and waking up crazy hot at night needless to say sleep has been crummy.
  • My doctor is out of town the next two weekends so I’m hoping and praying Toasty does not decide to come on one of the days he’s gone.
  • I’ve been getting really anxious about recognizing that I’m in labor. Everyone says “oh you’ll know” but I have a crazy high pain tolerance. You know when you say I hope it isn’t broken and everyone says “you’d know if you had a broken bone” well I’ve had at least 3 broken bones that I didn’t know were broken until one I went in 2 weeks later because the bruising didn’t go down and two when I had X-rays for other things and the doctor asked when I broke it before since he saw a healed break (umm yeah I didn’t know it was broken before). So if you have any non-pain related descriptions of labor and contractions I’d love to hear them.
  • But most of all we are all getting so excited to meet this little guy. It’s really fun to see Daniel get more and more excited every day!

  16. I am so excited that you hit the 37 mark! My daughter was born when she was 37 weeks – and honestly it was so nice not have to wait three more weeks to meet her!
