Yes, everyone, I officially *feel* pregnant now. Perhaps it's because I'm measuring two weeks ahead, so my body is officially feeling the third trimester (sore back, hips, hard time sleeping, etc). But in other, better, news, I only gained 2 lbs in 5 weeks! So the whole 7 lbs in 3 weeks was not establishing a pattern. Don't get me wrong, I'm not dieting or anything. In fact, this minimal weight gain has just given me perimission to indulge a bit more fully in my ice cream, cookies, and bacon! I've gained 15 lbs total so far, which the midwife says is right on target. So bring on the milkshakes!
We now start going to see the midwives EVERY. TWO. WEEKS. It's getting serious!
26 Weeks, 3 Days
My basketball belly!
The belly button is still attempting full liberation, but hasn't made the break yet. Yep, I'm most definitely *looking* pregnant these days...
Ok, let me just say that the other night Chad came home from work starving, so who was I to say no to going out to our favorite finer diner, The Fly Trap, where I proceeded to have a great BLAT (aka bacon, letuce, Avocado, and tomato. YUM!). Then, afterward he whined and whined for ice cream, so again, who am I to deny my hardworking husband of a little black cherry ice cream from the local parlor?
I just thought you should know all that before you see my fat belly. I did it all for Chad.
