Yesterday I had a very successful pre-natal appointment. The battery on our bathroom scale died a few weeks ago, and I’ve been fretting about how much weight I’ve gained ’cause it seems that every time I wake up from sleeping my tummmy is bigger than it was when I fell asleep. I was starting to feel like a huge cow. I know, I’m SUPPOSED to get bigger, and I know I’m SUPPOSED to gain weight, but when you have no idea how much you’ve gained, it’s quite easy to feel like a sloth. So of course, the first thing you do during a pre-natal check up is take your shoes off and get weighed (and of course ALL of my appointments have been right after lunch…). So imagine my surprise when I find out that I only gained 1 lb over the past 4 weeks! My Dr. was very impressed. That makes my grand pregnancy weight gain up to 9 lbs – 4 lbs in the 1st 2 weeks after my Dr told me to cut back on running, 4 lbs over December (Christmas, New Year’s etc..) and 1 lb during January. He says now I can gain up to a lb a week 😯 I don’t know if I can eat THAT much. I’ve been eating everything in sight already!
