So, this weekend at my friends' wedding I was, like, totally wasted and stuff. Yeah, man. I got so bombed on cranberry seltzer...

Being the pregnant one is weird. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome and amazing and gratifying. But, it's also strange and limiting in some ways. Those ways are, of course, teensy weensy and completely inconsequential in the grand scheme, however, they're annoying in the present moment.

Take, for instance, the cranberry seltzer. I enjoy cranberry seltzer just as much as the next gal, but a bourbon on the rocks would have been nice. Just one. Or maybe one of the goat cheese hors d'oeuvres. That would have been tasty. Bourbon and unpasteurized/soft cheeses are off-limits. By the time I get to have some brie and wine again it will have been at least a year and a half since the last time. Weird!

I'm beyond thrilled to be having this baby. Really, I am. We heard the heartbeat again last night. Amazing. So yeah, I'm thrilled, but I really miss my cheeses.

Far be it for me to dispute your doctor, HOWEVER...a formerly pregnant friend of mine showed me this article a while back, and she had a grandly healthy child, and drank a latte every day of the entire 9 months. Just 'food' for thought for you especially regarding Brie. I hate to see anyone go without brie, ya know.

Sandra - Oh, don't you worry, I make myself a latte every morning and I'm just waiting for the first sign from my body that it's OK to have a glass of wine. So far, I feel funny about the wine. Most likely it's from the 4 month absence of it in my life that makes me feel funny about it, not necessarily the wee one. And sushi? I still have it now and then. Most sushi fish in the States is flash frozen to kill the bacteria anyway. I gotta read up on the brie. I mean, I'm pregnant, I'm not dead.

The only thing I gave up was alcohol and certain meds but to each her own :)

It's a task of deprivation for the extreme love, isn't it?

Scary that when I was having my children we didn't know all those "no-nos" and I drank some (2-3 drink a week throughout both pregnancies. They are both healthy and brilliant.

I feel for ya babe. Just think of how good that first glass of wine or cocktail will be, and how yummy a nice goat cheese pizza will be when baby's finally here...(and it's safe to resume...)
