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!

    I was working on losing weight when I was pregnant and thankfully only gained 16 lbs for the whole thing. After giving birth, I lost 11 right away! My son was 7lb 2oz. (he is 13 now and will have a b-day in April!)

    Keep up the good work and have a safe and healthy delivery! emoticon
