Gnawing hunger

I wake up hungry, then stay hungry over the course of the day. It doesn't matter what I eat or how much, I'm hungry again an hour later. It's like I'm eating Chinese food all the time. Hmm, that makes me want some. Great, it's 11:35 p.m. I don't know any 24-hour Chinese food places around here.

But seriously, I don't remember being this hungry when I was pregnant with "T." Maybe it was because I was so nauseus all the time. I didn't have time to get hungry between trips to the toilet.

Last night, I put everything together to cook a pot roast, pototoes, carrots and onions with gravy in the crockpot. This morning, I just set it on low and went out the door. All day long, I have fantasized about that pot roast. I just knew it was going to be delicious with macaroni and cheese, garlic green beans and cornbread. Then, I started to worry about whether I had set it to low. Then, I worried whether I had put enough liquid in it. All of this before noon.

The paper bought us lunch today for being accident free for 30-days. We had sandwiches and fruit. Usually, the sandwiches are that great, even if the fruit is. By 11 a.m., my mouth was watering at the thought of a sandwich. I was so hungry. I ate two sandwiches and a ton of fruit. It's a good thing they always give us too much.

Before I even went to pick up "T" this afternoon, I swung by home and checked on the roast. I got a taste of it. It was perfect. Later, everything else turned out great except for my cornbread. Tell me, how do you mess up cornbread? I thought it was the easiest thing in the world to make, but I did it.

If I keep this up, I'm going to gain back all of the weight I lost before I became pregnant. I lost 25 pounds since December by exercising and cutting out junk food. I know I'm going to gain weight, but I didn't think it would be this soon.

The roast sounds delicious, you're making me hungry!

I eat all the time, but I have no excuse as I'm not pregnant, LOL!

Wanted to wish you a Congratulations on your pregnancy. I still occasionally lurk on the TTC Debate board but don't really post on it anymore (I just stay with the TTC Adoption board).

Anyways...congrations! And could you tell me how you make your garlic green beans? Our local Chinese restaurant makes them and they are to die for.

I use frozen green beans and add just enough water to cover them. Then, I add about a teaspoon of butter and garlic taste. I bring it to a boil and then let them simmer for a bit. I wish I knew how to make them like the Chinese place does.

Oh, and thanks for the congrats. I really do appreciate it.
