Mark just asked me what I'm blogging about and I told him my weight. He replied, "aahhh....a bragging post....niiiice....." So I apologize, I'm just really happy! (Especially after discovering stretch marks on my be-hind the other night. Thought you'd like to hear that.)

I got weighed yesterday at my doc's appointment. As I timidly stepped on the scale, I told the nurse "DO NOT TELL just stresses me out!" and looked to the ceiling. I thought for sure it had to be bad news because she didn't say anything like "Oh, you have nothing to worry about" or "you shouldn't be stressed"....this made me even more stressed!

So I get into the patient room to get seen by my doc. Some of you know that he scolded me for gaining so much weight in the last visit--so I was extremely worried that I'd leave defeated and feeling even larger and more helpless than last time. Instead, I got a, "Good job, kiddo....two pounds! Not bad for five weeks..." I guess I'm exactly where I need to be and by the time I have this baby I shouldn't gain more than 30 pounds total. Right now I'm at 18 pounds--and I've been thinking that I've gained at least 20. I'm so pumped.

I couldn't believe what I had just heard! As we left, I did a happy dance and couldn't stop smiling the rest of the night!

Now I'm off to watch Friday Night new obsession!

ps- Michelle, I most definitely do not work out but probably once a week---if I'm lucky. I just happen to remember to take belly pictures when I'm the least clothed ;)


  1. Okay, first of all, love how this post started out, how Mark totally called you out on that. Second of all, I know it's easier said than done, but you're a pregger, it's okay to gain weight, especially when you still look as cute as you do. Now third, Friday Night new obsession as well. I'm halfway through season 2 and can't stop. I know there's probably more productive things I could do with my time like, I don't know, look around on Pinterest, Blog stalk, or even go old school with the Facebook stalking...but Tim Riggins and the gang just have that hold on me...

  2. Gotta love tim riggins. Plus coach and tammy are amazing. I love that show! You are such a cute pregnant lady :)

  3. woohoo! good for you! i'm up 2 or 3 lbs at 19 weeks..i'm hoping to stay under or at 25 but with this appetite...i don't know if that's possible! :)
