When we found out we were pregnant, we went out for a nice lunch to celebrate, so weâ€™ve decided to mark each trimester with a meal out. Last night, we went out to mark the beginning of the second trimester.
I was jonesinâ€™ sushi.
Sushi is on the list of â€˜foods to avoidâ€™ while preggers, but vegetarian sushi is fine. Actually, a lot of the foods you are told to avoid, you donâ€™t even need to think about if youâ€™re already veg, which is nice. So we headed to Cowfish, which makes the best vegetarian sushi around.

I started off with miso soup, which prompted lots of corny â€œmiso hungryâ€ jokes.

Today, I am running a 5K race â€“ but not until 3 PM! Itâ€™s kind of strange for a race to start so late, but Iâ€™m thankful because Iâ€™m not much of a morning person these days. If the race was longer, Iâ€™d be really stressed about what to get for breakfast and lunch so I donâ€™t give myself a stomachache, but I think it will be fine if I just eat normally.
