I saw this on a blog the other day and realized I had all of the ingredients to make it. Charles had it for dessert and I had it for dinner. Don't judge, I'm pregnant. Plus it is kind of healthy with the apple and the oats =)
You core the apple
Mix oats, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, brown sugar, and butter
Fill the apples, but don't pack tightly or they will explode. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
While the apples are baking, make the caramel sauce (or if you have it, just use premade) Melt sugar.
We are officially out of the first trimester. I was really blessed with how easy it was.
A lot of women experience terrible morning sickness that actually lasts all day long. I probably had three or less days where I felt nauseous all day. Other days I would have moments of nausea and all I would have to do was eat and I was fine. I carried a bag of pretzels in my purse at all times because I noticed that when I let my stomach get empty, that is when I felt nauseous. I never once vomited, and I am so thankful for that!
Another symptom women report in the first trimester is exhaustion. This one hit me pretty hard. I was sleeping at least 12 hours a day. It would be 8:30 and I was falling asleep on the couch. This is supposed to lessen during the second trimester, and I think it is. I am still sleeping more than usual, but not as much as I was.
The weight gain. I have been pretty anxious about this and really want to keep it under control. I know the more you gain, the longer it will take to loose. I'm also am trying not to care to much, because I know it's good for the baby for me to eat! Since I was a healthy weight to start, I should gain somewhere between 25 and 37 pounds. During the first trimester, a healthy weight person should gain between 3 and 5 pounds. I gained 6. Oops. Not too bad though. I told one of my co workers that my goal was to not weigh more than Charles by the end. She said "He is really skinny. Good luck with that". =) It is probably an unrealistic goal because that only gives me 20 pounds to gain during the second and third trimester. Hopefully blogging about my weight gain will keep me accountable!
