Oh my.

It’s getting increasingly obvious that I’m nearing the end of the second trimester.  The “honeymoon trimester” is gracefully (or not so gracefully) bowing out and the discomfort of the third trimester is tiptoeing in.

There will be a thorough update on Friday (my Having Known For… update).  Just a warning: You might want to just skim (or altogether skip) the “physical” element of the update.  I’ve got so many changes worth mentioning that are swirling around in the back of my mind that I’ve had to start making a list so as not to forget them!

In other news, I had the best lox and bagels this morning; but what I’m about to say has nothing to do with pregnancy and smoked salmon.  It’s about eggs.  (If you post scathing comments about the dangers of listeria, thank you, but I’m going to delete those.)  This morning I topped the cream cheese, the bagel and the lox with an over easy egg.  It made me wonder, Why haven’t I been putting over easy eggs on my lox and bagels all along?!

It’s just the creamiest, saltiest, yummiest combo.  (Additionally, if you post scathing comments about salt intake during pregnancy, thank you, but I’ll likely be deleting that, too.)

My Bradley Method instructor has been heavily encouraging the consumption of eggs during pregnancy.  Brian and I have made scrambled eggs, egg salad, hard boiled eggs, French toast, etc.  But eggs on lox and bagels?  This might be a new favorite.

If you’re someone who typically likes smoked salmon, I highly recommend this.

…and then a glass of chocolate milk to wash it all down.

I mean, I can only be so fancy all at once.

    Ok here is my take… My first pregnancy I was a nervous reck about what I can and can’t eat. But I think over easy eggs are amazing! And yes every now and then in my pregnancy I will have them and cookie dough and eggnog! Although with the eggnog I do heat it up in the microwave and then pour it over ice. Non alcoholic.

    Now I want a bagel thanks haha

    I’m hungry now for lox and a bagel;-)

    Yummy! I think that sounds great. I have no opinion on the eggs or salt issue… not my baby so not my business.

    Still loving my hair!

    Big morning smile. I did not realize you had even heard of lox. It is such a Jewish Deli item for me, being from California. My favorite part, besides the belly of the fish which is most commonly sold now, is the fins. They are so good and meaty. I used to make scrambled eggs with onions, accompanied by a lox fin on the side and a bagel with cream cheese. I’m allergic to all fish and seafood now, since my forties, so haven’t been able to indulge for years. Enjoy for me too, please, and don’t worry about all of the foodborne diseases or sodium intake( unless you begin to swell severely and I hope you will not!) If you make Starbucks cocoa, you could retain your ‘gourmet’ menu throughout. I love it!

    I’ve never had lox; might have to try them when I come up in September. As far as eggs, try Eggs Benedict if you haven’t already poached eggs and eggs in the hollandaise sauce – rich and heavenly. 🙂

    Love over easy eggs on hamburgers (called royale in Peru) and over baked beans and toast (from theUK)

    Food really tastes better when you are pregnant!
