I'm trying to get back into full swing of things. Between pain from the winter, seasonal depression, having dh back home and adjusting, the holidays and getting pregnant, I've been here but feel like I've been just floating around. I'm sure my sparks buddies have noticed it and so have my team mates.
But I'm making a turn around, pregnant or not!
Right now I'm looking at my food and realizing I'm doing pretty darn good with it. My original spark plan to lose 2lbs a week had me set at 1200-1550 cals a day. With being pregnant I've increased that to add in the about 300 calories that I need during pregnancy. Right now I'm just short of those 300 cals (by like 100 cals or so) but will increase them in the last trimester when the baby will be putting on weight and all.
I've been staying in range, eating high protein, lot's of fruits and veggies and getting in my carbs while also keeping my sodium low (except yesterday, I was just off all day long).
I'm enjoying my food, my snacks, my cravings and I'm not kicking my own rear for giving into them. I'm just happy that my weight is staying steady and the baby is staying healthy.

I actually finished this one! I thought I put up a blurb to what it's about, along with the poster I made. I hope you enjoy!
Night of the Living Stiffs
From the mind of V.E.L Edgar (Writer of Zombie Dogs) comes another off the wall, B-movie filled with highly offensive images and dialogue that will make you wonder, “Who in their rightful minds would write something like this?”
For most men, sex is always on their mind. For Alec Lockwood, it’s the last thing he wants to hear after his wife leaves him due to his inability to “perform” in bed. Far from his British home in a California sexual dysfunction testing clinic, he meets Tad Rush, the Aussie hell bent on collecting the test drugs in order to become America’s all time favorite porn star. But before the two can set things right or take the path to their American dream, things start to become a bit twisted in the most sinfully silly way as they find themselves surrounded by fellow male test subjects who have become zombies with an deadly need to sexually please.
Filled with British comedy, a hot Aussie and a bunch of bloody sexually deprived zombie Yanks, Night of the Living Stiffs is sure to have you bent over in laughter or at least holding your ankles.
Make room in bed, the walking dead are up.

I go in on Tuesday to have my second US. On my last one (first one) the baby was measuring small by 4 weeks. I know that the US can give me 3 possible results.
My due date will stay the same.
My due date will change.
The baby has IUGR and there is a health concern.
I don't mind the due date issue (though I love to be closer to my date than further away! :P) but I am concerned with the IUGR issue which is why they are doing a second US to start with.
I did lose some weight and I'm still under my starting pregnancy weight as of now and know that could cause it along with blood sugar which I've not gotten the results for so far, plus a bunch of other underlying issues such as with my placenta, infection, and birth defects.
I really want a healthy, happy, safe birth and baby so keep me in your thoughts and wish me luck that this is nothing but a due date issue!
