WCM you are so cute. Don't you worry about size (easier said than done, I know). I love your new pic. Very sweet. You are very young still, right? Weren't you only 21 or something? Just curious. I'm old lol...hit 30 in February...geez..I see wrinkles everywhere.
I started this pregnancy at 135lbs. I'm 142 as of this morning. I'm very adamant on only weighing myself in the mornings, right after getting up and peeing. I don't trust doctor's scales. I mean they weigh you after you had breakfast and probably lunch, plus 2 gallons of water...no way jose. I don't care what the dr scale says, unless my scale confirms it :). So, 7lbs in 15 weeks isn't so bad, right? I don't know. I'm scared to gain 50lbs again. I gained soo much with DS and lost it really quickly after. I had a moon face with him, really. I looked ridiculous. It was a lot of water though. Right after birth I had lost 23lbs already and was back to pre prego sized pants within four months (now I was still soft though). With DD I only gained 23lbs, which was a lot better but it took me 7 months to lose the weight. Now that I was back to where I wanted to be, I got knocked up again LOL. Here's to hoping that teaching Zumba and chasing two kids plus a big black lab all day will keep the weight down. Plus I'm pregnant all throughout summer so we'll be eating a lot more fruits and veggies instead of being heavily pregers in the wintertime (can you say BROWNIEEES AND ICE CREAM :)).
I believe I felt flippy last night. I was so exhausted that after giving the kids a bath and showering myself I laid in bed while DH was buzzing around the bedroom doing stuff. We talked and I was on my side, uterus squished down and everything and I felt a very light 'thump', just a tiny little twitch on the my left side, almost by the hip bone. I said "Oh I felt the baby" and held my breath and I felt it again but no more after that. Haven't had time to really 'listen' in since then. I'm guessing next week or so I will feel it more often. I'm excited about it. I have been so busy with the kids, my house, work etc that I really didn't have time so far to actually 'care' enough for this pregnancy. I guess it's like they always say, the third one just kinda 'happens'..there's no time to sit and sing to the baby or whatnot, it just kinda grows as we go and all of a sudden there's a big ol belly. I have started however writing everything down again. I started it with DD since I didn't have time for a scrapbook so now I'm writing everyhing down for flippy. I find myself going back and reading my little notes every now and then and compare. It's sweet, I'm glad I wrote so much down.
