Not sure exactly why but I think it simply has something to do with a growing baby inside of my tummy.
I've spent a good part of this Sunday snoozing.
Our weekend was low-key.
It started with a big storm here in Charlotte Friday night that even caused part of SouthPark Mall here in town to collapse.
I'm just read that it won't fully reopen until Tuesday.
We were originally going to do restaurant week with some friends, but after hearing the reservation was set for 9:30pm we opted out.
Instead, we dined at Harper's and enjoy their 3 for $20 menu.
Not a bad deal!
I ended my meal with a brownie Ala mode. It's always been one of my favorites.
A couple of hours later I was it TERRIBLE pain.
Pain right under my right rib bones.
I experienced this a couple of other times this week, but not this bad.
When I mentioned it to the doctor earlier in the week he said that if it correlates to when I eat it could be my gallbladder.
I guess, it's common for pregnant women to get gallstones because of the increased level of estrogen?
Anyway, we called the doctor Friday night and instead of going to the ER they told me to eat low fat and bland foods for the rest of the weekend and to come in on Monday.
So, low fat it is and there's been no pain.
I started thinking about it, and the two other times I had experienced that pain is when we had gone out to eat and I ordered dessert.
Most of the time, we do eat healthy and low fat so maybe that's why I haven't noticed it otherwise?
I guess we'll see what they say tomorrow.
As for Saturday, we decided to head to the lake.
The weather looked yucky but we decided to invite our neighbors LuLu, from Looks Like LuLu, and her husband Keith and take a chance.
It actually turned out to be a nice day!
Nothing too wild and crazy just a low-key day of boat riding and catching some rays.
That evening the rain started in again but nothing major.
The boys cooked dinner and LuLu set up a little tablescape for us.
They feasted on ribs while I stayed with a low-fat menu and dined on grilled chicken.
We sat around talking and chilling out.
And, our dogs did the same.
(Well, not talking but searching for crumbs)
I tried to get a picture of the two of them together but it didn't quite work out!
They were looking up for treats which is why they look so strange.
Well, I'll sign off for tonight to enjoy a little TV time.
I think I'm the only one on the planet who isn't going to watch the finale of the Bachelorette.
Sorry, I just can't get into it. The guys are just DUMB!!
CIAO for now!!
