Cottage Cheese

I’ve been reading about the need to take in large quantities (80-100 grams) of protein during pregnancy. Cottage Cheese has become one of my favorites because it boasts 12 grams per half cup. I’ve taken to eating it regularly in the hopes that it’s aiding the growth of our little bundle of joy.
I’ve also been trying to exercise regularly but I’ve outgrown most of my workout pants so the other day I went to buy some new ones. For the first time in a long time I found myself in front of a full length mirror where, to my horror, I realized that the cottage cheese had actually migrated, not to my bun in the oven but to my buns and thighs. I’ll spare you a picture of this catastrophe but I am now going to reconsider my love affair with cottage cheese or at least urge our little one to take her fair share because I’ve got enough.

  1. LOL! I do remember a certain someone making FUN of me for trying to add cottage cheese to everything last time she visited me. Don’t worry, once miracle miller arrives, any cottage cheese that she didn’t take her fair share of will migrate from you to her in the form of cream. Have no fear. 🙂

  2. I wish I could blame mine on eating cottage cheese, but I’m not a fan of the stuff. Derrick always tells me that I’m beautiful despite the damage that my pregnancies did to my body. I still think you’re beautiful!

  3. The cottage cheese now only makes the transformation back to your sexy self more amazing later! At my appt today the nurse did not use the scale quite right and weighed me in with 5 extra pounds. I keep thinking, exercise, or put it off for seven more weeks?? And if you really want to be grossed out you can see a picture of my varicose veins courtesy of Jefferson, McKinley and mystery baby…You will be feeling like a super model in no time.

  4. I am not even eating cottage cheese and I have noticed it lately too! What is this? Oh well, at least you have a reason! I love to hear about your updates. I am so glad that everything is going well.
