17 weeks!

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

I've just completed the first 16 weeks of pregnancy #2. All is well health-wise, but I have been doing rather poorly with my healthy eating; morning sickness was rough this time around so all I wanted to eat was carbs, and once the morning sickness passed, all I wanted to eat was everything!

Thus, I'm knuckling down yet again, and I'm determined to track my intake regardless of how well I actually eat. I'm currently about 20 pounds heavier than I would like to be (post-pregnancy), but by doctor's orders I'm still supposed to gain over the next few months. I just want to keep a lid on it so I don't have *too* much to shed afterward. Obviously the health of the baby comes first.

In other news, we're returning to the Pacific Northwest! My husband got a dream job in Seattle and we're leaving our tiny rural town in less than two weeks. I've been happy here but I've missed the bustle of a liberal city. Between packing, cleaning, yardwork, and a currently sick toddler, the process is a little daunting. I've already donated close to 25 large boxes of stuff we no longer need and if I can convince my packrat hubby to part with more, I will. And we get to stay in some relatively swanky corporate apartments for six weeks after the initial move (while we do some house hunting), and I'm looking forward to that.

10 weeks!

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

I'm 10 weeks along with baby #2! In order to help avoid the excessive weight gain I experienced with the first pregnancy, I've decided to use SP to track my progress. All weight loss oriented goals have been turned off for the time being, but I find that SP has much better tools than Baby Fit so I've decided to stick around here.
