1. Claritin. I love it. I’ve been suffering from my allergies since near the beginning of my pregnancy. Seriously, people were avoiding me in church, saying, “I know you have a cold,” when I knew very well I’ didn’t. Extreme congestion, so much mucus! Thank goodness for Puffs with lotion! Also lots of wheezing. I’ve been taking Benadryl and a prescription nasal spray but they just weren’t cutting it. Then just as I was about to give up and go to the doctor, I tried Claritin. It’s on the approved list of things I can take while pregnant and while it hasn’t completely eliminated my congestions, it’s got it to a manageable level and I haven’t wheezed once since I started taking it last week.
2. My favorite breakfast food recipe. I just had to share because it is so yummy.
3. Pomegranates: yum!!! Isabella and I love them. We’ve been splitting one about once a week now that they’re in season. It makes a great mess; but boy is it worth it.
4. Danielle Bean asks: “How do you sneak more fruits and veggies into your kid’s diet?” Frankly, that’s not my problem. My biggest concerns about Isabella’s diet are calcium and protein. She doesn’t like milk and frequently the protein we cook for us is a spicy dish so I can’t just give her leftovers. I’m often too lazy to cook a special meat just for her so she eats lots of yogurt, cottage cheese and edamame. I’m still not sure that’s really cutting it for either her protein or calcium requirements.
