my enemy

so yesterday i had a doctor's appointment. it was my 4-month appointment. no big deal, right?

right.

that is until i walk in the office and 30 seconds later i'm standing on a scale facing the reality that unless i eat salads for the next 4 1/2 months, i don't think my goal of gaining only 20-25 pounds is going to happen.

i hate scales. hate. hate. hate.

did i mention i hate scales?

in my defense, i did have to switch from morning appointments to afternoon appointments, but still...come on!

i almost cried when i saw the scale.

i asked the nurse, "how could this be? i'm still wearing my REGULAR jeans! i don't feel like i've gained 7 (yes i said 7) pounds in one month!"

that brings my total to 10. 10! that means, i've gained half the weight i wanted to and i'm only halfway. logically, you think that would be right. not to this pregnant woman.

i know there will be bigger numbers put up than 7 in the next few months!

why can't i be one of those women who gain like 15 pounds or less their entire pregnancy?? (like two of my friends i know. you know who you are!)

grrrrrrrrrr...............

Next time you go to the dr., don't look at the scale. Just shut your eyes and pretend that you haven't gained a pound.

Just keep in mind, that you lost it once. You will lose it again. Your a determined person. You can do it.

Don't look to me as an example. My number is on the rise.

OK - (not that this is so very reassuring because I'm no trophy)
I weighed 200 big ones. Gained around 60 lbs. with my second and that all happened during a home remodel while I worked like a man. I positively could not understand how the weight came... but it faithfully came, lettuce diet or not...
You will gain weight. You will lose the weight.
You look more fantastic each time I see you. That is the truth.
I bet your hunny thinks so too...

So what type of fabric would you like your dr.'s office blindfold to be made out of?

Maybe there are two little girls hiding in that "tiny" tummy!

My favorite story is when we moved here when I was 8 months pregnant with John David. I went for my first appointment with my new doctor. I stepped on the scale and the nurse made a displeased kind of grunt. She then went to the other room and came back with brochures on the free health and fitness program at the gym offered to pregnant moms. Wow, thanks. I felt really great after that.....

Ah, just enjoy every pound and enjoy life!

It is so brief.

I agree with Marme....Just enjoy being pregnant. I went weigh of the charts with Sam.....It's just something about 2nd babies. Don't worry you will loose it....

I gained most of my weight with the second on before I even found out that I was pregnant!! I was ready to have a fit because I could not understand what was wrong. I also knew that I was going to have to go on a water and water diet if I was not pregnant. In the end I didn't gain to much like 30 to 35 pounds. Memory fades after the baby gets here and the weight comes off.

You are beautiful! 10 pounds half way is good. Enjoy those sweet feelings that you have on the inside. Just because you don't gain alot in pregnancy, dosen't mean it won't come later. Better to gain in pregnancy and lose it later than to not gain and then gain it latter. Just enjoy this time and eat! It's the after that I am stressing about now. One of my students asked me when was I going to have my baby. :(
