Almost halfway to baby

Monday, November 14, 2011

I absolutely cant believe that thanksgiving is in 2 weeks. The holidays have come really quickly this year. Im not complaining though because i can not wait for all the yummy food!! Turkey, mashed potatoes and corn , exactly what im craving and I finally get to have it soon.

In one week I will be 5 months along and halfway to meeting our little one. We had our sonogram last week and found out we are having a BOY! My husband was pretty disappointed because he wanted another girl but like I told him its not like I can exchange this gift, lol. I think he is coming to terms with it finally. We have had a boy name picked out since our first so I figured a boy would be easy to name. Then DH goes and says that he doesn't like the shortened version of Elijah so now we are name shopping again.

I have my next doc appointment on wednesday. Last month I gained 6lbs putting me at 188.4 according to their scale. I have managed to maintain this month and depending on how I can control my sweet tooth I will hopefully only have gained 2lbs max this month. We joined a gym that in a 5 min walk from our house so I have been going mon - thurs. and then we go swimming on sundays. I've got the exercise part down its just my crappy eating that needs to be fixed.

So for the stats

total gained since my first doctors appointment on 8/10/11 ---- 15lbs
total gained from my very lowest pre pregnancy weight of 158lbs on 5/31/11 --- 30lbs

I really wanted to enjoy being pregnant again but all I can think about is speeding it up so I can get back to my regular gym routine and meet my new little one of course :) .

We actually got a really good profile pic this pregnancy so i was super happy!

His little pea toes that I cant wait to kiss!

And me 17 weeks or 4 1/2 months pregnant
