I think another problem is that the docs told me to stop exercising early on because of a whole lot of spotting in the first two trimesters and braxton hicks contractions that started before 20 weeks.
I have embraced the weight, though, and have decided that I shall eat all that I want now until I have to start counting calories again. (side note: I have never been a healthy eater but I don't binge eat while pregnant! I just eat the wrong stuff therefore become a fatty.)
An elderly lady who I don't know gave me a present at church and apologized she didn't make it to the shower. It was a crocheted blanket, hat, and booties. It made me cry that someone I didn't even know made those things for my little baby! Seeing that tiny hat made him more real to me. Brennen doesn't believe that he'll be able to wear it. He says, "He won't be THAT small will he?" Yep, he will. But unfortunately not for long!
