I'll Take an Apple Juice on the Rocks

If you're anything like me, you enjoy the occasional glass of wine or perhaps the occasional girls' night that includes Magic Mike and margaritas. If you're anything like me, then after a long and horrible day at work that glass of wine begins calling your name before the clock ever strikes 5:00. 

Then you get pregnant and those occasional glasses of wine after a long day go out the window. I know some people still insist that occasionally drinking red wine is okay during pregnancy, but this chick here doesn't even dye her hair while preggers (much less drink a glass of wine).

Yet after a long day at work; when everything is going wrong; and when your pregnancy hormones have you wanting to karate chop each person that you see; you really begin to think, "Dang I need a drink." What's a pregnant lady to do? I have the answer. It's an apple juice on the rocks (make it a double). The sweet, bitter taste is cool and refreshing. If you're being a really good prego, then you're likely drinking 100% juice which is also makes your evening cocktail more than healthy for little bit. Just pretend that the golden color you're drinking is a glass of tequila (ew, that's gross).

Sometimes I wish the idiots I spoke to over the phone at work could see my belly so that way they could at least think about being a little bit nicer. I love how people open the doors for me now and strangers try to hurry out of my way (not even like I'm huge yet). But if the ones I speak to over the phone could see the belly, then perhaps I wouldn't have to go home and have that apple juice. 

Then again, maybe it's just hormones. Or perhaps I just want to karate chop something today. 

Did you have a lot of "horrible" work days?
