3 Months Late & Strange Food Craves

Is it weird that I've been overwhelmed with life to a point I can't keep up with my blog? I guess that's just a taken nowadays.

Anyways, it is a fact that I am 3 months late on my period (sorry to make you read this, if you're a man!), but it is also a fact that I've taken at least 5 pregnancy tests over this past period and all came negative. I have yet another appointment at the OBGYN next week to try a new pill and see if it'll make me normal again.

This is just one of the many things going on in my life right now. Another thing is, I am just recovering from a 1 month long illness. For the first time ever in my life I had an ear infection (viral, got it from a kid I babysat, just my luck), and for the first time in my life (as far as I can remember) I had to take antibiotics.
Let's just say my family has never been too big on western medicine so we always ended up with home remedies. But this time it was brutal, I could barely get out of bed and walk for a few days, when boyfriend decided to - literally - drag me to the Doctor.

Drama never comes alone, and as I got sick my grandma was admitted to the ER back in Brazil. I called my Uncle periodically to check on her, and as she got better and was moved to a room with a phone line, I got worse, and thus pushed back calling her. My illness had a peak on Tuesday Nov10th, when I went to the doctor.
As I woke up on Wednesday, alleviated by the drugs, my Mom calls breaking the news: Grandma had just passed away.

She wasn't that Grandma with whom we grew up with or anything, but she was Grandma, you know? And even though I only saw her once every couple of years when I was in Brazil, I miss the fact that she's not in this World.

I hate the tone of my blog lately, but does anyone else thing this year is being one of those years??? BLARGH.

While I was sick, I could barely eat and it feels great to be healthy again. But I started making soups, and although it's not such a weird crave like eating scorpions but with so many other yummy stuff to eat, why do I keep having soup cravings???
The days that I don't have soup for dinner, I end up craving it even if I have just had a juicy hamburger or a delicious pasta or korean bbq... it really doesn't matter what I eat, by the end of the day... I just want my soup.


  1. are you sure you're not pregnant? this is so weird, maybe you should get yourself tested at the doctor? well... I hope you are ok!

    I'm sorry about your grandma, and for you being sick for such a long time!

    Stay healthy now!

  2. Howdy princess.

    First, please accept my deepest sympathy. May your grandma rest in peace. We all will follow sooner or later.

    Second, I am glad you're feeling better. Infections of any kind are no fun. Ask me! I used to get sinus infections all the time when working. Things are better since I quit. Coincidence? ;)

    Finally, craving soups isn't weird. Our bodies naturally know what they need/like, and while hamburgers and junk food tastes food, it doesn't sink in with our systems. So, get souped up :D

  3. Isso foi em novembro. Como é que estão as coisas agora???? Acho que não teve nenhuma novidade, senão já teria alardeado né?

  4. I hope you're not having a tubular pregnancy because that's dangerous have you had a sonogram or vaginal exam??

  5. lilize? how are you? are you ok??!!!
    Hope you enjoyed Christmas... happy holidays!

    I miss you!!!!
    where are you?!


  6. I'm here again!

    if you ever read this:
