The land of Bed and True love

Along with pregnancy I also get to enjoy be stuck in the land of Bed.Yet again I was in bed for 3 days due to the flu.After a long day of throwing up I finally decided it was time to go in to the urgent care.I needed to make sure that Owen was gonna be ok.I sure did feel him moving and kicking a bunch so I didn't worry to much but just wanting to make sure.They tried to turn me away because I was further then 24 weeks pregnant but thanks to my loving husband pushing for Iv's they took me back.Two bags of fluids and two meds later I was sent on my way to sleep off the rest of my sickness.
Being a stay at home mom and main care taker of the family needs, I have a system.It may not be the most organized or timely system but it is what makes this family function.To be sick and not able to move adds stress due to you HAVE to give up that control and have others help you.In my case my husband.For me this is true love.To have him get up without hesitation and be the care taker is amazing to me.Always there by my side making sure me and the baby were ok and that the girls were taken care of.Little things to show his love even while im sick makes me appreciate that man that he is.I am grateful to be married to him and even more grateful to have him as the father of my children.

Recipe of the day

Since I am doing this Get fit challenge I thought I would post a recipe for some of my homemade Protein bars

What you will need:
3 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups dried milk
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup lite syrup
4 scoops protein powder(i like chocolate)
2 large egg whites or 1 egg
3/4 cup orange juice(i use light o.j.)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 Cup Mini chocolate chips

Start by preheating the oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper, or spray on some non-stick butter flavored Pam spray. In a large metal bowl, mix all the ingredients until the oats are well coated. Spread the mix onto the cookie sheet Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown (i cook for about 25 min). While still warm, cut them apart and allow to cool before wrapping. The bars can be stored airtight at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
