This week the relative ease of 2nd trimester seems to be coming to an end. The entire week I’ve had a lot of soreness in my right lower back, to the point where it hurts whenever I put weight on it and I walk with a limp. My midwife said if it doesn’t go away by next week she’ll give me a prescription for a muscle relaxer, which I plan to take her up on no matter how I feel. I’ve never tried those and heard they’re great. 😉
We went to IKEA today and got our crib, the white Gulliver model. We chose it because my friend recommended it, it has good safety ratings, it went well with the changing table Nathan’s mom got us, and it converts into a toddler bed so we can use it until the kid is…I dunno, 4? And it cost exactly the amount my grandma gave us to buy a crib (Thanks Nana!). Otherwise we probably would’ve gone the craigslist route.
As I expected, I’m pretty bad at this Vegan MoFo thing. If you want to see lots of great vegan recipes, check out the rest of the blogs participating. I don’t know how some of these people cook and eat so much.
Last night Nathan threw together a simple sort of mexican style soup with a package of tex-mex rice,vegetarian boullion cubes, pasta that looks like spaghetti o’s, pinto beans, and frozen corn. I added some tvp for extra protein and mixed in some steamed kale from the garden and that’s what I’m eating for dinner. Very yummy, but no fancy recipe or pic…
Breakfast was equally “boring but great to me”: A peanut butter, strawberry jam, and banana sandwich.
I do hope to try out some new recipes for Thanksgiving though…
