    I definitely had all-day nausea for the first 9 weeks, and the last few days (10w today) it’s transitioned to being hungry ALL.THE.TIME. I was just getting used to making smaller meals, and now I’m stuck, hungry, at 1:30 because apparently my lunch wasn’t enough today! I suppose it’s all for a good reason, though 🙂

    Hubs and I did Blue Apron every week for a while and loved it! It’s such a great concept, and I think with the exception of one meal (their beef lo mein during the Chinese New Year was definitely not lo mein) we’ve totally loved all of them!

    Wow, I would have LOVED to have something like that during my pregnancies! The exhaustion of the first trimester is like none other, and you just can’t understand it unless you’ve been through it. Congrats on the pregnancy, BTW!

    I’m so glad you had Blue Apron to help! I agree, pregnancy hunger is unreal!

    You are lucky! Congrats on the pregnancy BTW! I have been reading since 2009 and it is so exciting to see things going well for you. I am in my first trimester right now and I am the total opposite of you! I can’t stand the sight or smell of any meat(ANY), or veggies. I am living on cereal, crackers and apples and peanut butter. Every now and then I can stomach a banana or a pb&j. I am sick if I eat, I am sick if I don’t…I can’t win so I munch on cereal and crackers every hour that I am awake. I even have to eat some before sitting up from bed, or I will go right to the bathroom. It is funny how different each pregnancy is! My husband cooks himself dinner, and I stay in another room away from the smells(even better if he will grill it outside). Poor guy haha. I am excited to hear all about the rest of this exciting journey as I follow just behind you!

    Did Derek find the blue apron means weren’t really all that GF friendly? I ordered from them a few times but had to pretty much change a main component of the meal to make it be GF. Hopefully they will be able to accommodate that restriction soon!

    oh my goodness – how adorable is Derek reading the recipe instructions! I’m so glad you mentioned peanut butter! We had a week off over Easter to do DIY round the house and every morning… EVERY MORNING… I started the day with peanut butter on toast. Yes it’s high calorie but it was SO satisfying. I am keeping the PB industry well in the money right now… I still have 17 weeks to go! I can tank a jar in a week and have a 3 jar stock in my cupboard at all times. Heaven help anyone who tries to eat any… this pregnant lady DOES NOT SHARE PEANUT BUTTER. FACT!

    How did you tell your family and friends about your pregnancy? That’s my favorite part of reading everybody’s pregnancy updates!

    I’m dying for Blue Apron to start delivering in my area. I’m more of a Derek when it comes to cooking and my husband is the Meghann 🙂

    I was starving my entire 1st trimester too. I’m a lot less hungry at 20 weeks.

    I guess, 9 weeks is the most terrible chapter of pregnancy – morning sickness and all. Anyway, I loved reading your post but something compelled me to drop a comment. Well, congratulations on your pregnancy! I just remembered a friend of mine when reading this, instead of losing her appetite because of uncertain feelings, she ate and ate and ate. I do not know where the foods have been stored. I wish that I would be like you on my pregnancy (I got excited! It’d be my first time) that you have managed to be healthy despite your work. Send my regards to your baby!
