Reality check...

This was the conversation at my doctors appointment last Friday:

Doc: "So, you have gained 9 pounds since your last visit"

Me: "Yikes, that is a lot"

Doc: "Um... ya... we like it if that number stays under 5"

Me: "haha... ok"

Doc: "Just make sure you're eating lots of fruits and veggies and good proteins, try to stay away from the sweet foods"

Me: "Ok... I'll try"

With this baby I made a goal to not gain as much weight as I did with Madden. I gained 40 with Madden. I'm trying to exericise more and watch what I eat so that I can keep this goal. But man... why do I have to crave chocolate chip cookies all the time!

Oh Amanda, I wouldnt worry about it. I was worried about the same thing and I talked to my dr yesterday, and I did the same thing during month 5 and 6. She said that when you are small to begin with you are more likely to gain more weight than someone who is heavier to begin with. So no worries...I think you are totally normal! I have already gained 20 pounds and still have 9 weeks to go...YIKES! haha. That should make you feel better.

haha thats funny I am so sure you need to worry about gaining too much weight I saw you when you were pregnant with madden are you sure you gained 40 pounds? Cause I dont believe you. I am the same way though I am gaining weight like crazy with this one haha And I just get pounding the oreos and milk. Me and Cory go through a bag of double stuff oreos in two days haha. I think the reason my baby is so small is cause he is malnutrient from all the junk I eat!!

First of all...screw the doctor. You eat whatever your little prego heart desires. :) Besides...you lost ALL that weight PLUS some last time. You were so SO tiny when I saw you in the summer. Let me imphasize again....SOOOOOOOOO tiny! Don't you worry one bit about gaining weight. You are a hot prego lady.

That is EXACTLY what happened to me. I gained 11 lbs up until I was 6 months and at the 7 month check up I gained 9 lbs and they said the same think. And I ended up gaining 40 lbs with Gavin too. Don't worry about it. Just do what you are doing and it will be fine. You lost it once (plus some) and you will do it again.

Tell the doctor to stick it!! You are beautiful no matter how much you gain...you just make sure you are taking care of that baby and nothing else matters!!!!
