White Gold

When we used to live with Robbie, we would share groceries sometimes. One of those things was milk. There were 3 adults and a baby in that house, and we'd be lucky if we finished a gallon of milk before it expired. Brynlee wasn't drinking milk yet then and we weren't home all day. The milk never got finished. It seemed we were destined to throw milk away forever.

Cut to now. Our family of 3 goes through...3 gallons a week! Seriously, about 3 gallons. It's crazy. I can't believe how fast we burn through it, especially considering one of us is 3 years old. But that 3 year old LOVES milk. She cannot get enough.

We are also a cereal eating family. We all usually eat multiple bowls of cereal a day. But still 3 gallons? This week we went to Costco and bought 4 gallons because I'm tired of having to run to the store to buy milk. It's good until Feb 3rd, and I have no doubt it will be gone long before then.

I get milk panic. When I see the milk running low, I start to fret. Worry about what I'll do without milk. Mind you when I'm not pregnant I'm not a huge milk drinker. I still like cereal, but I'm not guzzling the white gold the way I am now. A lot of times I'll be craving something, but I can't figure out what it is. Usually if I drink a glass of milk and it hits the spot. I cannot imagine being lactose intolerant, I think I'd die. So here's to a fridge well stocked with milk, happy guzzling Cuillard family!

Week 33 Pregnancy Stats:

Baby is about 4 and 1/2 lbs now!

New Cravings: I'm kind of over Grape Nuts. I still eat them but not religiously. Now, its Jello. Particularly strawberry Jello. I think I could eat my weight ( which is a lot these days) in Jello. I've never been a huge Jello fan before.. pregnancy is so odd.

Stretch Marks: No....fingers crossed.

Weight Gain: About 28 lbs and rising. I seem to be hungry ALL the time these days

Other Symptoms: 
-My heartburn has been better recently...I'm not asking why I'm just saying YAY!
-I'm finding I sleep a lot better if I eat a bowl of Special K before bed. That way I don't wake up at 3am to pee and am starving.
-Sister baby Claire ( that is what we call her now) is having a grand old time kicking my bladder allll day long. I'll think I have to pee and drop everything, rush to the bathroom to then can't seem to go. It's so frustrating. I actually found myself sitting in the bathroom stall at Costco starting to tear up about it. Yes I started to cry because I felt like I had to pee and couldn't go. Safe to say pregnancy hormones are raging, LOL

However, all things considered I'm feeling pretty good! Besides the aches and pains and all around usual pregnancy discomfort. I'll take being fat and having bladder issues over the vomiting issues of the first trimester any day of the week! 33 weeks down, 7 weeks to go!

We go through 4 gallons a week easily. When it was just Cory and me- 2. The boy loves his cereal and cookies and milk.

Home stretch on the pregnancy! So exciting!
