9 months pregnant , almost there and Belly pics!

Saturday, March 17, 2012

So I have a little less than 3 weeks until my EDD of April 6th! I personally think my due date is April 12th but at this point I've switched to my docs EDD because its closer emoticon. My mom will be here in 13 days and after that he is welcome to come anytime! Im am so ready to not be pregnant anymore.

Im still gaining 1lb+ a week which sucks. I cant count the weight from my last appt. because it was at 1:30p and my usual appt. is in the morning. But im thinking it would have been 211 which puts me at a grand total of 37lbs. If I continue my usual pattern I will have gained 40lbs this pregnancy. Considering my diet and lack of consistent exercise it isnt too horrible.

Id like to say I would have done things differently if I knew what I know now, but really I kind of already knew it. If you eat junk your going to gain fat duh! I had a lot of stressful things going on in my life these past 9 months. I didnt handle them as well as I should of and let food be my comfort. The only thing I wish I had really done was keep a consistent arm exercise routine. My batwings positively gross me out!

I know I will succeed and reach goal after baby. It will be different this time because its not new. I've done it before and I will have the knowledge that it IS POSSIBLE. That I am capable of great things and will succeed. I will have motivational body pictures of my actual self versus idealizing others. If I can lose 130lbs then I can lose 50lbs.

I decided to go ahead and take my maternity photos last night. My cameras suck and I had to have my 5yr old daughter take the few I managed to get out of my husband, but what I got turned out ok. I decided to paint an easter egg on my belly because he is pretty much going to be an easter baby. My daughter loved helping with that. She kept sticking the brush in my belly button to make sure it was sufficiently covered in paint, lol.

    emoticon emoticon Make the best choices you can. The baby will come when it is ready to come. I sometimes get tired of due dates. They got my daughters wrong and were stressing the baby was overdue when he wasn't.
