16 weeks.

i don't think there's anything wrong with a can of diet coke when you're pregnant. hell, i don't see anything wrong with two cans of diet coke. everything is ok in moderation, right? right.

yet...i haven't quite been able to crack open that diet coke since i got pregnant. i do agree with my midwife and the baby books that it's best to wait till the 2nd trimester (just-to-be-safe) to partake in all that nonsense bad-for-you stuff like caffeine, hair dye, and exercise. so now that i'm in the 2nd, it's time to get a move on! but until i feel comfortable doing so, i'll continue to take sips of my husbands coke at the movie theatre (liquid gold!). cause it doesn't count if it's someone elses, right? like there are no calories in that bite of cake you steal from a friend? or that half a donut someone else brought to the party. i mean, right?

Love this too!

Camilla Leila said...

love this, and i agree. do what your body tells you to do :)

also you have a midwife? i just watched a documentary on netflix all about midwives. it's called the business of being born.

so interesting.

emily said...

totally agree. i love stealing sips and bites because of that very reason.

p.s. when we do have a face-to-face in real life i want to talk to you about your midwife if that's cool.

i just noticed your "high school" tag. lollll

i must confess that i didn't like "the business of being born." also, naked ricki lake in the bathtub=not ever my fave.

I love how you included "exercise" in the list of bad-for-you stuff. I know what you mean but it's still funny to see.

You look great.

melissa, i was wondering if anyone would notice that. haha. i've been too nauseous to exercise, but it's back on the list now. even though it's still, ya know, on my bad list. :)

we put the business of being born on our netflix queue. i'll have to talk about my midwife in another post. it's a good story. i'm excited about it.

Aspartame is on the list of no no's for artificial sweeteners. Just say no! All you gotta say is NooooOO. All you gotta say is No!

So cute! I'm glad I inspired you to make jam - it really is the best and we make it almost every year - my favorite combo is peach, raspberry and strawberry jam - so yummy!

ah! i love it.

Camilla Leila said...

yeah, i agree - naked ricki lake was a little much for me to handle. still - i found the film to be an interesting and in depth look at the entire concept.

so so so happy for you. i needed to say it again. :)
