That's right y'all...hubby and I are gonna have an addition soon and I can't tell you how elated I am.
This album is dedicated to my weight, workout and diet while pregnant. The goal is not necessarliy to limit the amount that I gain (for my size, it is recommended I gain between 25 and 45 lbs), but rather to gain weight in a healthy manner so that losing it on the back end is not so difficult.
Additionally, we are using a certified nurse midwife, and plan to have a natural birth at a birthing center. My diet now not only has an affect on the amount of weight and where it is gained, but also on the quality of the birth.
----------------- Tracking stats (weekly weigh-ins as suggested by my midwife):
1/25/08 - 123.4lbs 2/2/08 - 123.0lbs 2/15/08 - 126.6lbs! 2/22/08 - 123.8 :( I am recovering from a nasty bout of the flu...kicked my @$$ big time. I was super worried about the fetus - having a fever for 3 days scared me. But my midwife said as long as it doesn't go about 102, we should be ok. 4/1/08 - 130.3lbs (clearly, my appetite came back!) 4/28/08 - 136.8: gaining 6 pounds in 1 month is a lot! I am shattering the "text book" numbers...screw the textbook. 6/25/08 - 148lbs
