changes after pregnancy

I was told that after pregnancy my body would be different. My feet might stay a size larger (they didn’t). My hips would be wider (so far doesn’t seem that way). And that I might not get my pre-pregnancy body back (I’m slowly but surely getting there). One thing that I was never told would change were my taste buds. Since having Jasper my cravings and tastes are definitely different!

I don’t really crave Chinese food anymore. Before I got pregnant I could eat Beef Broccoli once a week. I think I’ve had it twice in the past 6 months. I used to pick onions out of everything but I am slowly starting to enjoy them. I’m pretty sure this started when I realized how much I liked red onions with cucumbers. I also enjoy a good juicy burger now where as before pregnancy I could go days without any meat especially red meat. It’s weird to suddenly like something you never liked before!

On Sunday evening Josh and I made a couple thick juicy burgers. (Normally I would make my burger very thin and put only ketchup on it.) This time I stacked mine with onion, lettuce, pickles and some mayo. Josh took one look at it and said, “Who are you and what have you done with my wife?”. Just keeping the mystery alive, folks.

    Do you want cheese on that burger?

    You are so predictable, Dad.

    Cheese though…I still don’t like.

    Soo interesting! I am already wondering what will change after the baby, glad to hear everything for you seems to be positive! How are you losing the baby weight anyway?

    Autumn – So far not much! After the initial major weight loss, I just started watching what I eat. It’s been slowly coming off. As soon as I’m done with work next week I’m planning on walking/jogging. (We ordered a BOB jogger!) Should be able to lose the last 12 pounds that way.

    I have a friend who was 100% vegetarian until she was pregnant w/ her 2nd child. Now she eats meat like it’s going out of style.
