The ever expanding belly ... why it's a good thing

Monday, June 20, 2011

Don't get me wrong, weight gain for almost any reason really isn't good, but I think most of you will be smiling by the end of this. So, I'm thinking a little poem is in order:

A little bean that starts to grow
a little line is what lets us know
with little eyes, toes and hands
a baby grows while mom expands
mom just smiles for it's what she knows
that safe inside a baby grows.

You'd be surprised at how many baby emoticons there are on here!

As for those of you curious, I haven't stopped eating healthy (er) than I had been. I still walk and do light exercises, and my doctor isn't concerned about the 10lbs that I've lost in the last trimester. (I attribute that loss to a HUGE craving for green beans.... I thought I was about to become one!)

And definitely after the last year (more if you ask my hubby) of being ready, we finally get to add a 3rd baby to our family. Finally, for those of you getting ready to ask, yes I already know about sparkpeople's sister site called babyfit. =)

    emoticon I had a friend that was 220 when she got pregnut for her first baby. She had just started to lose weight because she was eating healthy foods. By the time of her delievery she had lost 75#'s and the baby was 7.5#'s. She expected that once she gave birth she would start putting the weight back on. But she was nursing and she lost another 20#'s by the time she stopped nuring when Jenny was 18months old and you know what happened. Right she got pregnut again . This time she didn't gain more than 19#'s and Katie was 7.5#. So you never know this may be your magic weight loss helper !
    Wishing you a fun filled time over the next 9 months and there after. Kay * The Pups emoticon emoticon
