28 Weeks .




Ok....here is another update. I am actually almost 29 weeks but who's counting. Besides feeling totally miserable right now thanks to a wonderful sinus infection and what feels like strep, I am feeling just large. I must not be the only one noticing how large I am though because I here comments like, "oh you must be due soon..." all the time. Nope...still got 12 weeks people. Either it's that I am rather large or carrying the baby abnormally low...It is weird, but I have noticed it...and so have other people. I guess my stomach muscle aren't what they once were....just can't hold my growing belly quite upright anymore.


I had an appointment today and things are looking good. I went into my last appointment and about freaked when I saw that I had gained 9 pounds since my previous appointment...9 POUNDS!! Holy crap...my dr. came in and told me not to freak...that I was only 2 pounds heavier at this point than I was with Tayden...that it could be the time of day and what I was wearing, and that I gain on the lesser side of normal anyways (I only gained 20 pounds with Tayden). I know she was trying to make me feel better...but I didn't feel better. When I went in today I was a little happier to see that I had only gained 2 pounds since my last appointment....although I was hoping I wouldn't have gained anything...oh well. The baby is measuring right on...although my dr. told me that at my last appointment he was measuring large, but she didn't want to tell me that then because I was already freaking out about my weight. It probably was a good thing she didn't tell me.


Now I am down to meeting with the good ol' doc every two weeks. I hope I can get through these next few months.

You are not huge! And I gain the most weight in my second trimester, and then hardly any at all after that. Like, I think I only weigh a few pounds more now than I did in December. And I had gained 12 pounds at that appointment!!!! I always make comments about my super heavy boots, and this makes me feel better :) You shoudl do a pregnancy photo shoot - you are at the perfect size for it! Cute and pregnant without the swelling of the final days (ive started to notice my face is awful round these days!!!) I think I missed my window for cute pictures! oh well...

You ALWAYS look beautiful! Stop stressing!

You really aren't huge. And you shouldn't freak about gaining...you're pregnant. That's what you're suppose to do. You are fit and tiny, and you will be again in a few months. Don't stress. You look great. Love ya!

You look great!!...I've done good on the weight gain until the last 2 months...6 pounds both times. I feel the same way though. All that weight is scary. I'm just trying not to have another 10 pounder like Connor! Lets hope these next 2 months go fast!

You really do look so darling Myca! I know what you mean about freaking out. I had gained 10 pounds one month (but I had only gained 4 lbs the previous 4 1/2 months). I totally freaked out...
The body must just do what it needs to. Hopefully I haven't gained another 10 at this next appointment. :-) I don't think I have but come what may, I will have my body back in a few months. I'm just glad the little guy is growing the way he is supposed to. Congrats by the way. I'm not sure if I ever commented on your blog before. I am just about 26 weeks along so we'll be having our boys within a few weeks of each other. Good Luck!
