6 week doctor's appointment

Pretty routine, nothing much happened.

She (the midwife) is going with my ultrasound dates, so my due date will be June 1st, 2008. So, as of Sunday I'm 6 weeks along. Holy crap that doesn't seem that productive.

Since my "annual female appt" at the end of July I've gained 6lbs. GAAAHHH! Look who hasn't been eating very well...

So, my starting weight was 124 (I was 130 today). I swear in just the past month I feel like I've gained that whole 6lbs. I feel bloatier (is that a word) and my thighs and butt feels chunkier. GRR. She wasn't too worried... she said "Just look at it this way, if on average you gain a pound a week (for a total of 40), you're right on track with gaining 6lbs for being 6weeks along" HAHAHA! Way to try to make me feel better. Its hard to eat healthy when there is usually only one single item that sound good enough to not bring on a fit of gagging and dry heaving over the toilet. And, let me add that that single item that sounds good is 99% of the time NOT fruit or something healthy. I'm on my way to gaining that 40+lbs again HAHA! Oh well. I view pregnancy as my time to be big and fat. I'll never be one of those cute, tiny pregnant girls, so why even try? The weight can be lost afterward. Lets just hope I have the motivation like I did after I had Porter.

You will have the motivation, because it will be summertime and we can go out in the sunshine and work this off! Hey 130#s is sounding pretty good to me! I've got 10 more on you, and Im not even pregnant yet!! And I did gain 40 with Lukas, so I'm sure I'll be in the 170-180's again!! Man I just want to get this over with so we can lose the weight already! Look at me, I'm not even pregnant yet, but talking like I am!!

Oh, I am so sad you started off at 126! I wish! WIth Annika I gained 50lbs! With Bianca, I gained 15, so you never know. Although 6 pounds already, maybe not! I lost at least 10lbs in the first 25 weeks with B. It was nice, she was healthy and I was getting skinnier, imagine that type of pregnancy! This time I lost just a few pounds, but I think I'm finally gaining, bummer...
