you'll never know me to be excited about such news at any other time in my life.
gaining weight for this pregnancy has been difficult for me. actually, i lost 15 pounds over the course of 8-10 before gaining this 3 pounds. i haven't been throwing up & i'm able to eat just fine. [actually, my problem is that if i don't eat regularly & i get hungry, then i throw up.] so why the weight loss?
i think it's mainly because i've cut out soda, & i eat healthier foods now. also, baby roo apparently doesn't have a sweet tooth [takes after shaun], so i rarely eat sweets. who knew eating healthy could make such a difference?!
while it's been cool to lose some unwanted weight, you're not supposed to be trying to lose weight while pregnant, & our midwife said 4 weeks ago that i should be on the upswing soon. now you can understand my excitement about 3 pounds. now i just have to not lose it again. [i gained these 3 pounds 2 weeks ago & lost them the next week...] rollercoaster, i tell you!
good news is that regardless of my fluxuating size, baby roo is growing steadily. i finally broke down & bought maternity jeans last week because it's not comfortable to sit in my regular jeans for very long.
heard the heartbeat again today. baby roo was moving alot, too.
