I just had my 33-week prenatal appointment. As usual, I was dreading stepping on the scale. I can never seem to get out of my head my doctor saying to me, “anything over 20 is yours to keep!” I already know (and so do you if you read my blog) that I am way over 20 lbs gained already.
I walked in, stepped on the scale and didn’t look at the results. I really didn’t want to know. I was visiting with my doctor and she says, “so, you’ve gained 27lbs in 33 weeks- that’s great! That’s really good!”
I couldn’t believe she was saying that. I went right home and had a celebratory oreo cookie!
I gained 30 pounds with my daughter so I will probably gain a few extra pounds this time around and I’m okay with that. I hear that it is harder getting the weight off from the second baby but I am sure as heck going to try!
Next appointment is in two weeks- my, how time flies!
