Don't you love getting surprises?
(It's my favorite!)
Today was our 12 week appointment with Baby C.
My weight gain goal= 2 pounds (but I would have been happy with 4 pounds)
And get this: I gained ZERO!
DISCLAIMER: At my last appointment, I gained 6 pounds in two weeks. At my last appointment, I didn't take off my mama-jamma scarf or my honkin' boots. SO REALLY, my weight gain last time was probably just 4 pounds.
This time, however, I became wise and took off the scarf and boots. NO BIG JEWELRY either! HA!
So in reality, I probably gained 2 pounds in the last four weeks. I know I sound psycho, but living in moderation when it comes to food is HARD for me.
If I want olives, I eat a jar. If I want popcorn, I eat a bag. If I want __________, I eat it!
SO SURPRISED, by my ~weight gain~ I ABSOLUTELY FORGOT ABOUT THE PART OF BEING PREGNANT WHERE YOU GET TO LISTEN TO THE BABY'S HEARTBEAT!!!
What a wonderful way to start the weekend!
All is well with our third and I'm energized enough to keep on going to the Y.
By the way, if you haven't met Hillary @ The Other Mama, you should hop on over and introduce yourself! She's right friendly, a mama to TWO boys with a little girl on the way. See, it really does happen! What are you waiting for? Go on and tell her I sent ya! And check out every one else's FAVORITES!
