According to Doc Judd, the amount of weight I've gained is "perfect". I've gained 17 lbs thus far but am a little nervous for the upcoming weeks. I've got Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's in the last trimester, and as we all know, those holidays are packed full of goodies! I probably need to give myself some sort of guidelines when it comes to eating sweets and baked goods for the rest of my pregnancy.
The doc told me that I need to remember "322-1111". My next appointment is in three weeks, then the next two will be two weeks apart, and the last four will be a week apart. Kinda fun, I can't believe that my baby will be here so soon. Eleven weeks really isn't very long at all. Especially with work, school, working on the house, and getting everything ready for the baby taking up all my time.
I really do love being pregnant. Everything is new and fun and I absolutely love watching my belly bounce all over the place when baby is dancing around. I'm noticing a loss in energy - I swear I could take five naps a day and sleep 12 hours at night. It is hard to pick stuff up off the ground - I have to do sort of a sideways tilt as I crouch down as to not squash my belly with my knees. Carrying laundry baskets is a task and walking up the stairs from lower west campus up onto main campus is KILLER! Too put it nicely, I'm overall just becoming a little less graceful. (Can you say Klutz??) I'm sure I have a lot left to experience during the remainder of this pregnancy but all I've got to say is "BRING IT ON!" (I hope I don't regret that :))
