28w5d: A Sad Day
Jane and Ed brought me dinner tonight. It was a chicken stir-fry over brown rice. I am eating such healthy food these days! Interestingly, eating all of this stuff has led me to stop craving a lot of the less-healthy foods and I'm no longer having cravings for the junk I see on TV. The only "bad" food I still want is macaroni and cheese, although Eric can certainly make this for me at home at some point.
There does seem to be one down side to all this healthy eating... I seem to be a bit gassier than usual. This is a problem since I am stuck in one room, and often people come into the room to do things like eat their dinner. Last night Eric told me no passing gas during dinner... which I managed, but after dinner, poor Eric! He threatened to make me go sleep in the guest room, but that would have meant his re-making the bed in there and he didn't follow through. I feel awful, because it makes me physically uncomfortable, and of course it makes Eric uncomfortable, too! I don't know if there is something I can take, or eat or drink, but if anyone has any solutions to this please let me know. I told Eric now I know why people get married before they get pregnant. If Eric weren't contractually obligated to me, you can bet the gas would be the straw that breaks the camel's back. Pregnancy is not very glamorous.
