Rachel Cooks


I feel like I’m jumping on some sort of bandwagon.

I’m joining Lisa, Kristan, Jenny, DeborahKristy and Jen…. (did I miss anyone?)







…and announcing….I’m pregnant!

I don’t have any cute bump pictures, because the last thing I feel like right now is cute.

But E is cute! And I searched high and low for this shirt. It is how we announced it to her grandparents. Not the most original thing in the world, but they loved it. They were very surprised this time.

Here are some things that I had forgotten but quickly remembered:

  1. Pregnancy + gym smells = wishing I could hold my breath while working out.*
  2. I must keep a hair tie on my nightstand because I will need it in the morning.
  3. Meat = gross.
  4. Salad = eww.
  5. Macaroni and cheese? Spinach dip? POPCORN? Eggo Cinnamon Toast Waffles? All a-okay in my book.**
  6. After 8pm I am usually (read: 40% of the time) free from nausea but it doesn’t matter because all I want to do is sleep. Or eat popcorn.
  7. Carry mints in purse at. all. times. in case of nausea.
  8. I do not do well with blood draws. 5 tubes of blood leads to me pretty much passing out. I’m such a wuss!
  9. And a bunch of other stuff that isn’t appropriate for a food blog.
*I haven’t been to the gym much so #1 is not all that much of a problem. However, on the days I don’t feel like death, I’m trying to make it! For anyone who is counting, this has happened once. When I can, we still like to take walks in the evening so I’m not a total sloth.

**Do not fret, I am doing my best to eat a balanced diet that includes fruits, vegetables and proteins. Fruit is the easiest of the three.


Things that are new this time:
  1. Food blogging = so hard. I don’t want to think about food much less cook it and write about it. Sorry I’ve been so absent. Hopefully this a) explains some things and b) will be better soon.
  2. Having a young kiddo around means trying to suck it up and act normal for her sake.
  3. My bump is popping out quickly!
  4. A 2.5 hour doctor’s visit with a 19 month old in tow is…well…interesting.
  5. And a bunch of other stuff that isn’t appropriate for a food blog.
Shall we do a “husband’s take” for this post?

“This is going to be quite the year.” <—Yes, yes it is.

“This is getting serious.” <—after I showed him the 2rd pregnancy test

“Now when you whine you have a reason.” <—No lie. He said this. He was joking. I think. He better have been!

“Tell me what you want for dinner and I’ll go get it. Anything.” <—Yay! That particular time, I chose Chipotle. Vegetarian burrito. Refer to #3 above regarding meat.

“I love pregnant Rachel, it is like an emotional roller-coaster.” <—Luckily I can laugh that one off…mainly because it is true. And he’s a good sport.

“When can we go viral with this?” <—Who does he think we are, Brad and Angelina? Newsflash, honey…about 10 people care.

Of course, he is thrilled. Over the moon. I think I’ve got the nervous/scared/freaking out* well enough covered…but I’m happy too. Another baby! EEEEE!

*omg omg omg omg omg we have to buy a new house omg omg omg we have to buy a new car omg omg omg omg I feel so sick omg omg omg I’m throwing up again? omg omg omg how am I going to handle two kids? omgggggggggggggggggg


So that’s that! I’m trying my hardest to maintain consistent blogging, but it has been tough! Hopefully 2nd trimester will be better…although it wasn’t with E. Thanks for being patient with me! 🙂


Oh! I’m due December 17th.

  23. Maura @ My Healthy 'Ohana — May 23, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    Congratulations!! How exciting 🙂 I totally agree with you, meat and veggies in the first trimester were off limits for me too and I definitely showed earlier with this pregnancy (my second)! Hope it gets easier for you soon!

    • Rachel — May 30th, 2012 @ 8:27 am

      Thank you so much! I’m hoping eating gets easier asap.

  24. Krista — May 23, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    Yay! Congratulations! What an exciting time for you and your family. I hope you start feeling better soon. Being sick and being a mommy, wife, friend, food blogger is not easy. And I totally want to see a cute baby bump so I can live vicariously through you 😉

    • Rachel — May 30th, 2012 @ 8:33 am

      Hehe, why live vicariously? Go for #5! 🙂

    YEA!!!!! Congratulations! I knew it, especially when you said you feel like everyone is pregnant right now, i KNEW that included you! PS, I’m not, juuust for the record.
    All of your food and smell aversions, and not wanting to blog, that’s all sounding oh so familiar! I hope you get to the second tri soon and all of that goes away soon.

    • Rachel — May 30th, 2012 @ 1:05 pm

      Thanks! I hope it goes away too. I was worried people would figure me out…with the lack of blogging, etc. You’re next, right? 😉

  30. steph@stephsbitebybite — May 24, 2012 at 7:46 am

  33. Kristy — May 24, 2012 at 8:45 am

    Yay!! Congrats! I am with you on all of those things you said above! My nausea was all day now it’s at night, so I’m normally in bed at 7pm, and I am constantly sucking on mints. It really does help. I feel you though on keeping up with a food blog. I just keep telling myself the morning sickness will pass, I hope!

  34. Kristy — May 24, 2012 at 8:46 am

    Oh and we are do at almost exactly the same time! I was due December 15th and now the 19th. Wish we lived closer our kids could have play dates!

    • Rachel — May 30th, 2012 @ 1:47 pm

      Oh that would be SOOOOO fun. *sigh*

  35. Lesa @Edesia's Notebook — May 24, 2012 at 9:35 am

    Congrats, Rachel! I am so happy for you and your family. Adding a second child takes a bit of adjustment, but it is so worth it. E will be a great source of entertainment to the baby and they will be best friends and playmates. Don’t stress about keeping up with the blog; we will miss you, but taking care of yourself and your babies is more important. I hope you start feeling better soon and that you have a happy and healthy pregnancy!

    • Rachel — May 30th, 2012 @ 1:50 pm

      Thanks for the encouragement, Lesa. You are so sweet.

  36. katie — May 24, 2012 at 9:35 am

    holy baby train! Congrats friend! I already have meat diversions and I’m not pregnant, so I can’t imagine that when the day comes if I’ll even be able to think about meat! lol.

    • Rachel — May 30th, 2012 @ 1:55 pm

      Haha, you’ll probably crave meat when you’re pregnant. Just wait–you’ll see.

  37. Bee (Quarter Life Crisis Cuisine) — May 24, 2012 at 10:02 am

    Yay! Congrats! I can’t imagine food blogging while dealing with the all day sickness (whoever termed it morning sickness was a man and had no idea what he was talking about). Hope you feel better soon.
    Pregnancy is definitely harder when you all ready have a little one but 2 kids is so fun! E will love to be a little helper.
    All this pregnancy talk makes me kinda miss those days. My baby turns 1 tomorrow 🙁

    • Rachel — May 31st, 2012 @ 7:18 am

      Right?!?! My dad asked me how my morning sickness was doing, and I just stared at him. LOL! Any more kids in the plans for you guys?

  49. Beth @ DiningAndDishing — May 24, 2012 at 5:59 pm

    Hope you feel better soon!

    • Rachel — May 31st, 2012 @ 7:27 am

      Thank you so much! 🙂

  53. Geni — May 25, 2012 at 10:29 am

    OVER THE MOON for you Rachel! YAY!!!! Sorry you are sooooo sick sweetie. I remember those days (even though the last was 14 years ago). I could never eat after noon and very little before noon…lost 7 pounds my first three months and finally month four was famished 24/7. Then gained 7 in the fourth month and do you know what my FEMALE doctor said, “Honey, if you keep gaining like this you will be as big as a house…you might want to slow down.” No joke. She said that and I cried all the way home.

    I have one more tip to add to your awesome list: Drink little sips of lemonade. That was one of the few things that settled my stomach alongside a couple of Saltines.

    Your little E. is the cutest thing EVER…no wonder you are having another one. 🙂

    • Rachel — May 31st, 2012 @ 8:25 am

      Thank you Geni! You are the sweetest. I hope you got a new doctor after that. 😉

  54. Lauren kelly — May 25, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    Well, let’s see I think your age spacing is good. My first two were 2 years apart (like literally 2 years, born on the same day!) and my 2nd and 3rd were 2 1/2 years apart and I thought it was a little easier. I was so sick with all my pregnancies that I spent half of my 2nd preg in the hospital being dehydrated. So I guess my advice for you now would be too drink as much water as you can!
    Your little E. is so adorable! Take time for yourself to rest. You can always blog later 🙂 Congrats again!!

    • Rachel — May 26th, 2012 @ 8:55 pm

      Great advice. I always know when I start seeing stars I need to drink water. Yikes! Thanks for the sweet compliments and the support. 🙂 xoxo

  55. Andrea deSherbinin — May 25, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    Hi! I just wanted to say 1. That I really really enjoy your blog and your recipes. And 2. Your daughter is gorgeous and she definitely gets her good looks from you. And 3. I hope your nausea ends quickly and you don’t slow down too much on the food blogging cuz we’d miss your posts.

    • Rachel — May 26th, 2012 @ 8:28 pm

      What a sweet, sweet comment. Thank you!!! Seriously. From the bottom of my heart. You are too kind! I’ll be back full force soon, I promise.

  56. Baking Serendipity — May 26, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    Congratulations!! So, so excited for you 🙂 E is adorable in that shirt and you are going to rock at raising two…I totally know it!

    • Rachel — May 31st, 2012 @ 8:28 am

      Thanks for your vote of confidence! 🙂

  57. Valerie @ From Valerie's Kitchen — May 26, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Yay!!! Congratulations Rachel 🙂 It’s such a drag that you are suffering from morning sickness. Ugh! That’s awful. But, hopefully you will move on from it soon. I never had it at all during my 4 pregnancies. The down side to this is that what I did have was HUNGER and boy did I indulge my cravings.

    I hope you are feeling better soon. Let the hubby take care of dinner as much as possible!

    • Rachel — May 31st, 2012 @ 8:29 am

      You are so lucky you never had to experience morning sickness. It is not fun! Hubs has been great though, I am so blessed to have him!

  58. Debra Kapellakis — May 28, 2012 at 8:04 am

    That is the best way I can think of to share the good news! CONGRATULATIONS!

    • Rachel — May 31st, 2012 @ 8:33 am

    Rachel, CONGRATULATIONS!!! Oh I’m SO happy for you!!! Though I’m so sorry you are sick. It’s so sad when you get such great news but then struggle to get through each day with feeling yucky. Hopefully that will soon subside and you can just settle into enjoying pregnancy. Can’t wait to see the baby bump pictures. And maybe for now you can blog baby stuff until you feel like looking at food again! 🙂 Those of us who are years past being pregnant would love to hear all about it and be reminded of it! 🙂 Congrats again!!!

      Thank you, Kim! You are so sweet. Hopefully I’ll be feeling better soon (next week…fingers crossed!).

    YOU ARE?!? Congratulations! That’s is such exciting news. I hope the (cringe) morning sickness (stupidest name ever because everyone knows it has NOTHING to do with morning) passes soon. Wishing you a safe, healthy and easy rest of your pregnancy.

      Thank you Sarah! Morning sickness is a stupid name! My dad asked me the other day “How’s your morning sickness?” I just glared at him, lol

    I am finally catching up on my reader, and just saw this post. I know I”m late, but I had to chime in and say CONGRATULATIONS! So exciting 🙂 And now we have to figure out how to get together sometime soon, before you’re too busy with a second baby to fit in time to meet up with blog friends! 🙂
