I feel huge...yet I'm only 24 weeks.

I've grown a tremendous amount this past week...
I was barely showing and then one day, i look like I'm about to give birth.
and i'm only 6 months in!
someone even asked me today if i wasn't sure i was having twins...boy, i wish! that'd be awesome!

at 24 weeks I haven't had any cravings...I'm waiting for some weird ones, but they haven't come yet...
However, I am HUNGRY like a teenage boy, so I'm trying to fill up on all good things to fulfill this rumbling tummy. I feel like I could eat and eat and eat and never get full. We've been stocking up on apples, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, cereal, milk, carrots, and things that are filling but good for you.

One weird thing that pregnancy has brought up, is i have developed a love for white fish. More specifically, Tilapia.
When I was 8 years old, I was scarred for life by eating fish and a bone getting stuck in my throat. Plus, the smell and scales always was a turnoff for me. Hated everything about fish.
I knew how good fish was for you, but still couldn't ever get myself to eat it. For the past few months, red meat has lost all appeal to me (which used to be my favorite meat to eat), so I three weeks ago, I tried fish to fill the void of meat in my life.
Tried salmon...can't pronounce it, nor do i like the taste of it...too fishy.
So I tried tilapia, and baked it with a little butter, salt, and pepper...OH. EM. GEE. 
I fell in love and it's been a favorite meal of ours the past few weeks. We usually eat it with cilantro lime rice and a side of veggies or a salad, and it's a fabulous light and healthy meal. 
I think I'll try doing different things like grilling the tilapia, but we can't steer away from this meal just yet. It's become a favorite of both of us.

This week my husband turns the big 3-0. 
I'm still trying to figure out how to make his birthday this friday special, while I'm at work and he's at work, and with a full schedule til around midnight. His birthday gift is being ordered and won't be here in time for his birthday either, but it's well worth the wait, and i'm excited for him to get it.
I have alot of baking to do before hand...he's requested Peach Cobbler for his birthday as well as steaks for dinner. Also, I'm baking a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting all from scratch for the teens to help us celebrate on Friday.
Still trying to brainstorm ways to make his 30th birthday a bang...wish i could be with him all day on his birthday!
