ILoveMySofie, I can totally commiserate on puking in the 2nd tri. I've been doing really well lately, but was really sick last night - in a hotel, while my 2yo was on the potty.
So much for that chicken fried steak I'd been craving. Sigh. I'm hoping it continues to dwindle for all of us!
Love all the pics.
I think I might finally have gained a little bit. I felt badly last time my MW came because (while it's totally normal for me), I hadn't gained anything AND I was spilling ketones (though I didn't realize I was hungry until she mentioned it). So I've been working at eating more often and being conscious of it, and almost feel like I should be proud of gaining a pound.
Really, I'm quite happy with my body's normal track of gaining pretty much nothing, maybe making it back to pre-pg weight in the 3rd tri, and being 30-40lbs lighter after the birth. It's a long time to wait, but a pretty effective "diet" all in all.
(And, no, it's not intentional - I just have plenty to lose!)
Did I mention kicks up high? I can't remember what I have said or not anymore.
I can't tell exactly where I'm measuring, but I'm definitely getting kicks MUCH higher, just in the last week. It's crazy! I'm not used to their being a baby in my upper abdomen.
Loving all the movement, though. Well, except this morning when my kids woke up SUPER early in a hotel and insisted on trying to wake me up.
Then the baby woke up, too, and I was being poked, prodded, kicked, and harassed both inside and out!
Speaking of which, must finish my dinner leftovers and get to bed "early." Soooo tired. But we had a pretty decent overnight trip (MIL along), and had fun making an unplanned stop to pick blueberries on the way home. We probably got 6lbs with an abundant crop, even though the season should be over now! It was awesome. My 2yo picked a ton - and had NONE in his bucket.
Thank goodness this is an "eat as you go" farm.
Must start baking tomorrow!
