But the past three days, I’ve taken 2-3 hour naps after lunch. I could even sleep longer. I thought it was because I haven’t been sleeping well at night, but that’s been constant since I became pregnant.
Today was no exception. I went out with my mom, sister and nephew. We met at Waikele Shopping Center, I wasn’t there to shop, but my mom was 🙂 Hehe…she told me to come to walk around and exercise. I met them at Coach. She told me to buy a baby bag. A Coach baby bag? I wouldn’t want to even dirty it – but she insisted and my sister pointed one out and I said, okay, that looks good. LOL…I’m easy when buying bags. I don’t do it much.
After eating lunch at Chili’s and I ate my whole plate of my Grilled Chicken Sandwich. I shared my french fries with Isaiah-who even “twirled” his fries in my ketchup. He only HE could twirl it, so I said, okay, I’ll tap mine in the ketchup. LOL…silly…
On a full stomach, we parted and I headed towards Kapolei, since I still needed to go to Petco to buy dog food and Target to buy other household items. I almost fell asleep! I was so tired. I made it to Target, but I was feeling hot and overheated, tired and just wanted to go home and sleep. So what did I do before I left Target. I bought a Strawberry ICEE. Horrible. But lately I love ICEY drinks. Not necessarily smoothies but drinks just with ICE and something sweet. It’s weird.
I got the dog food and headed home, feeling light headed and just sleepy. I was just too hot. But I still needed to walk the dogs, bring in Josh’s laundry and I turned the AC down so I could just cool down because I felt so warm. And I fell asleep and woke up two hours later.
I don’t like the feeling of being so exhausted so I started looking it up on Google. I’ve been SO ravenous for food…that sometimes I don’t choose the right thing to eat. I’m not a big red meat eater, only once in awhile, but I think I need more iron. I take a prenatal vitamin that is loaded with iron already, but I eat red meat only once a week. I can’t say I eat the proper amount of veggies either…so I’m thinking I need more iron rich foods. Don’t want to be anemic. I’m good on fruits. I eat bananas, oranges and LOTS of strawberries. Yup, strawberries have been my craving choice this pregnancy, thank god they are in season! 🙂
I just made a tofu vegetable dish and ate it way before dinner because I woke up hungry after my nap. I feel pretty good so I’ll incorporate tofu in my weekly diet. Now I just need to make sure I eat meat…I want meat, but I don’t go out of my way to make it or buy it. I was always more of a chicken person, but I guess that ain’t cutting it.
We’ll see how my energy changes after this diet change…if it doesn’t help I’ll talk to my doctor on Tuesday when I go for my next appointment.
