Well here I am.... ugh!

Monday, March 11, 2013

Wow, I feel miserable haha. emoticon I know, third trimester and its to be expected. Can't help but think how grateful I am that this is our last....although I know that mindset will change after our baby arrives!
Weight gain has been... a lot. LOL
Which stinks, but honestly is not surprising considering my history on the matter.
I gained 50 with my first (who was born a month early) got up t0 205
60 with my second, Got up to almost 210
and almost 65 with my third (I got up to 220)
This time I am 200 pounds and almost 33 weeks.. ugh!
SO, that's up 35 pounds with 7 ish, or less weeks to go.
My guess is probably 210 and a 45 weight gain.
Thankfully my weight gain always slows down a bit at the end, or even stops for the last week or 2, so trying to focus on the positive. emoticon
Although I know that I will obviously be in the 200's again, I also know I will be out of them again once baby is born.
I know the weight gain is only temporary and worth it.
I also know this is the last time I will get this big, because it is my last pregnancy and there is no way I will ever allow myself to get to this weight again. haha. So I guess that's the plus side.
Although I am still gaining a lot, I make healthy food choices and I am hoping that will help with weight loss after baby is here! WAY less junk food this time around.
MEANWHILE, we have officially picked out a name for the little guy...but it's a secret!
My doctor thinks baby might be early, so I am busy nesting and trying to get things ready before he gets here! Wish me luck emoticon
Other than that, things are wonderful. I am feeling blessed to make it so far with no issues. I can't wait to hold my sweet baby, emoticon it's pretty much what I think about 24/7!! Can't wait to have a little baby in the home again. emoticon

    Congratulations to you!!!! I have 5 sons myself and love them all dearly. They are all soooo much fun! My youngest is 3 and although he was/is my last, I still miss having a tiny one around. But not changing my mind. :) Good luck with everything and just remember that he will be here before you know it.

    Hang in there and just enjoy your last pregnancy! That's what I had to tell myself! The weight gain was much more than I wanted, but ya know what? It's coming off just fine now and I couldn't be happier!

    What is your due date??? I'm 35 weeks tomorrow and starting to nest. Trying to NOT get set on a 37 week delivery though I've had a few babies at that time and a few more at 38 weeks, so it's very possible!!! I found all my gowns and boy/girl NB stuff and got it ready so the tub can be pulled once baby arrives!! (we don't know what we're having)
    Hope you have a great rest of pregnancy and a safe and low pain delivery!!! Can't wait to read your news!!!

You have to have patience waiting on the time for your child's birth and you can used that patience an anticipation ,when you are trying to loss the weight. emoticon and again emoticon

    Oh what a blast from the past. My first baby came 20 years ago and my last of three came 16 years ago. It was such a magical time. Good luck to you!

    Your blog brought about so many forgotten sweet feelings! Enjoy your last weeks of your pregnancy as much as you can. Focus on feeling every one of his kicks and enjoy every little move of the miracle inside you. You'll worry about the weight issue later. You've done great so far and what's important now is a healthy delivery both for you and the baby.
    You have my best wishes.
