Double Blueberry Probiotic Smoothie

I was extremely disappointed a couple of weeks when I got a call from my OBGYN that I had a bladder infection. One, I was scared. I had kidney infection when I was pregnant with my son that had me in the hospital for around 5 days. Please don’t let that happen again! Two, I didn’t want to take any pills! They prescribed a weeks worth of antibiotics. This to the person that struggled with a bad headache all day in my first trimester and wouldn’t take a Tylenol! So frustrating! Not to worry, I took the prescribed pills but I also added a few things to my diet to try to replace the lost good bacteria. Kefir in my smoothies, yogurt on mornings that I don’t make smoothies, a kombucha or probiotic drink (like Kevita) once a day and double the water. Ok, not always water, hot tea counts. I already drink a lot! Hello trips to the bathroom! The prenatal vitamin I’ve been taking for almost a year also have probiotics. Crossing my fingers for no more infection.

On a happy note, I have this pregnancy habit of taking my coffee and breakfast back to my bed every morning. It’s cold out and the warm spot keeps calling! Bonus: you can see what I keep on my nightstand! Jewelry tree, books, candle, coaster and my baby’s first rattle from Aunty Zan! Not shown: lamp, belly oil, belly lotion and chapstick.
