I have a confession to make.
DH is SUPER strict when it comes to my diet. If I’m around him and I order iced tea, he cuts me off and asks “uh, does that have caffeine in it? yes? well she will have water.” It’s infuriating. And he used to “allow” a small tea cup of coffee once a week, but two weeks ago he said he didn’t want me drinking any coffee at all throughout the rest of the pregnancy.
My confession: I drink a small cup of coffee once a week at work.
There… I said it. I finally told someone and I feel a little better. I mean, I’m an adult. I can self govern…myself. Right? It’s not like I’m eating cheetos all day (no offense to the ladies who currently crave cheetos) or drink mountain dew all day. It’s one small cup of coffee. I even cut out the fancy creamers to reduce the sugar intake. I’m not a bad person, am I?
(and yes, I’m looking for validation lol)
I’ll update the list it today, after we hear the pink or blue news from awoah82: who has her anatomy scan!!
AFM, I think I can feel baby moving! Only when I lie still on my stomach and concentrate haha. But I feel those little flutters and my heart just melts. I called DH into the room last time I felt it and he just sat on the floor beside me rubbing my back and talking to our baby. It was so sweet.
Happy Friday everyone!! Any fun plans for the weekend??
That said, you are NOT a bad person for having a small cup of coffee ONCE a week! Goodness, you’re like superwoman. I’m not a huge coffee or caffeine drinker but when I want one I have one. Do not stress about it or feel bad about it at all! We go through so much in these pregnancies that we need to indulge from time to time, and research shows that we can safely consume at least 200 mg of caffeine a day, which is more than that little cup you’re enjoying!
Sitting COMPLETELY still at my desk and typing and the baby is gettin’ down in my tummy! I wish I could feel him/her at home but I think I move around too much. I need to get up but I don’t want to!

So much BLUE in August!! 7 Momma’s are confirmed with boys, and look at all of the anatomy appointments coming up in march! I’m team green, but SO excited to hear the news from everyone as they are finding out!!
out of curiosity, why did he change his mind about you drinking anything with caffeine in it?
AFM still no kicking yet, none that I can tell is obviously the baby. I have an appointment today for my final round of blood tests and just a general check up with the doctor. I wonder how much weight I’ve gained! My bump is definitely a bump at this point…too many burritos. 😉
