Enormity

I started out well this pregnancy, but in the last nine weeks, I've amassed much more weight than I'd hoped! I've currently gained 34 pounds with this pregnancy, which seems better than my gain with Moses except that I started this pregnancy with 15 more pounds than I started with Moses. I think that means I'm at roughly the same place weight-wise as I was with Moses, but hopefully I won't put on the additional 25 pounds I had when I delivered Moses. I was a whopping 215 when I delivered that kid, carrying more than 70 new pounds!

So, here I am at 29 weeks 4 days and I'm huge, again. I just think it's genetically impossible for me to stay within the recommended weight gain amounts. Sigh. My doctors aren't worried, and I guess I'm not either. It'd just be nice to start the postpartum period without the need to shed an eight-year-old child from my body, again.

I'm also getting a ton of contractions now. I didn't have Braxton Hicks with Moses so I'm new to these "practice" contractions and so not a fan.

I think you look great! But if you're like me, it's more about how you feel than how you look, and I feel ready to explode!

I didn't have BH contractions with Addison either, but am experiencing some this time around. Not so fun. Hang in there...not too much longer!

LOL, I thought I was doing so great weight wise this last pregnancy too, until I gained 10 pounds in the last 2 weeks! Yikes!

Hang in there! And you look great!
