It's hard to believe, but I'm already in my 3rd trimester! I continued my walking through the summer, but have been bad about it since. I ended up losing a total of 11 lbs before the pregnancy started taking over. I'm still not quite at my pre-pregnancy weight of 205, but I have crossed the 200 thresh hold on the upswing already. No complaints here. I'm thrilled that I shed 11 lbs in my first 1 1/2 trimesters (you'll have to see my previous posts) and I'm thrilled that it's not piling on rapidly. I've felt incredible during this pregnancy, for which I'm extremely grateful. I have hope that after this baby's born I'll be able to actually lose some weight, and I'm very excited!
So, I'm 28 weeks today and I'm having another son! Elijah David is his name, Eli for short. The girls are so excited. Aaron, well, not so much, but he's only 2. He does know that Mommy has a baby in her belly, and most days, he does too!
We're gearing up for Thanksgiving and Christmas here with small baby preparations thrown in. Most of those preparations will be done after New Years and then he should be here sometime around Feb 9th.
I am incredibly excited for 2012...a new baby to snuggle and hopefully some weight loss as well!!
