I noticed today that I’m getting closer and closer to the end of the second trimester. It has gone by so quickly that it seems unreal!
One of my checkups was today, and I mentioned my fears about being too big too early to my OB. It turns out that everything is measuring exactly on track and she even told me she didn’t think I looked that big. So there. :O)
It probably has something to do with the fact that I’m always in skirts or dresses. They way they fit, they don’t show just a bump in the belly like pants, and they do make a person look bigger. At least most of mine do. Oh well though. It was nice to have my doctor tell me that everything is right on target.
Another nice thing to discover was that I’ve only gained 16 pounds so far (at 23 weeks). My goal is to be more careful with weight gain this time around so that I’m not trying to lose close to 50 pounds again. So far so good, though with as much as I’ve been craving sweets. . .I can’t take all the credit for a manageable weight gain!
Lately we’ve been trying to figure out what we need for a little girl. We’ve also been decluttering quite a bit to make more room for her things. Things have been busy around here the past few weeks, but hopefully they’ll slow down for a little bit before Little Miss gets here. And if they don’t, at least we won’t be bored!
