I have definitely been eating a TON lately. The scale over the last couple of days has been horribly discouraging, but what's worse is that I haven't changed my eating habits because of it. Dang. I, too, am at the point where I CAN'T eat as much at once (because I either get crazy uncomfortable or really bloated and miserable), but yet I still find myself stuffing my face all the time. It's ridiculous.
I've always wished I could be pregnant at a different time of year...I've always been pregnant over the holidays. Sadly I lost every baby where I was due in fall or early winter. But it would have been a nice change to not have such tasty temptations (and so many reasons to bake them) all the time.
I love clementines, too! Last time I got them, they had seeds in them, and the kids wouldn't touch them. But the stores finally re-stocked the Cuties ones, and DS, if forced, can peel his own Cuties.
Somehow, I'm just at my pre-pregnancy weight (back up ~5 pounds from first trimester), and was *down* two pounds in a week, from my first blood pressure appointment, to my second one a week later.
My first two were due in January and December, respectively, and were born in December and January, respectively. I've always wanted, like, a late spring to early fall baby. I guess this LO kind of fills that, but I was thinking more around June to August. But whatever, we're happy. :)

Way better than regular oranges, and little, so easy to finish. They're also super easy to peel. My 4yo DD peels her own without any help whatsoever.
I can eat those things like candy.
Just watch out, because citrus can trigger prenatal heartburn for some women.
They (usually) do. I try and get the Cuties kind, because they're seedless, and at least for me, it's a PITA to try and get all the seeds out. Thankfully, I haven't had much heartburn this time around (knock on wood!), but I will keep that in mind. :)
