What’s Up Wednesday – 24.02.22 (a day late)

1: What we’re eating this week:

I just ate 4 donuts because I saw someone eating donuts on YouTube. That’s how pregnancy cravings work.

As for our meals this week, they’re all over the place. I haven’t made a decent meal plan and so we’re just winging it and making whatever we have the ingredients for. Rui made some tuna lasagna on Monday, which we had for dinner on Tuesday and Wednesday as well. Today I made some pasta and we have leftovers for both Rui’s lunch tomorrow and our dinner tomorrow evening.

2: What I’m reminiscing about:

January. I feel like I had my shit together in January and was super organized and productive. Not so much in February.

3: What I’m loving:

Getting the house ready for the baby and buying all her things.

Our prenatal classes. Just had our 4th class yesterday and learned A TON about breastfeeding.

Having shorter hair.

All the baby kicks.

Random people noticing that I’m pregnant and being extra nice.

4: What we’ve been up to:

Getting everything ready for the baby.

Visiting my in laws last weekend.

Unfortunately, attending a funeral on Wednesday. Even though it was a very sad day, we got to spend time with family and to see our cousins who are here from the US to attend the funeral.

5: What I’m dreading:

Rosa getting spayed soon. I absolutely cannot deal with health issues/procedures when it comes to animals. Fortunately, my husband knows how anxious it makes me, so he’s taking her by himself.

The third trimester of pregnancy and whatever crazy symptoms I’ll soon be dealing with.

Whatever is going on with Russia and Ukraine. Very scary.

6: What I’m working on:

My “things to get done before baby” list.

My February book review.

My “February goals” review.

7: What I’m excited about:

A new month and a fresh start.


Getting everything ready for the baby.

Spending time with family and friends.

8: What I’m watching/reading:

I’ve just finished reading The Plum Tree by Ellen Marie Wiseman, which I absolutely loved. I’m currently reading When Never Comes by Barbara Davis but I’m not sure I like it yet.

As for what I’m watching, nothing spectacular or useful. Reality TV, mostly. Married At First Sight Australia, 90 Day Fiancé and Love is Blind.

9: What I’m listening to:

Nothing. Except for the music we listened to on our 2 hour trip to visit Rui’s family. I came up with this game where we’d each choose one random year and play one of the most famous songs of that year. It was quite fun.

10: What I’m wearing:

If I’m home, either pajamas or leggings and a sweater. If I’m going out, a dress.

11: What I’m doing this weekend:

Friday: Appointment with an endocrinologist in the morning; Lunch with my mom and sister; Trip to IKEA in the afternoon;

Saturday: Cleaning the house; Laundry; Assembling furniture and moving things around the house; Hosting dinner for my friend Catarina, her husband and their daughter.

Sunday: In the morning, Rui is training for the half marathon with a friend; We’re then having lunch with said friend and his wife.

12: What I’m looking forward to next month:


A bigger bump.

New ultrasound.
