Can't believe I'm in my fifth month already! We get to see the baby and find out it's gender on Thursday and I will be exactly half-way through my pregnancy. It's been a long time coming - maybe after that ultrasound it'll seem more real!
The holidays through me off a little; I had just gotten my first-trimester eating under control at Thanksgiving, but by mid-December all the extra treats and parties got to me and I finally developed sugar cravings. My doctor isn't concerned about my weight gain so far, but encouraged me to be as cognizant as I have been, but stop the holiday pattern. I've gained 15 pounds by my home scale and I would like to stay within the 25-35 pound range at delivery. Right now, it's just really important that I get back to my 90% high-nutrient diet and get more walking miles in!
