Did you just call me fat?

Don't worry.  No one is calling me fat except me.

In the past 4 weeks I have more than doubled my pregnancy weight gain.  Whoops.  Today I had a weight gain of 8 pounds.  (That's a lot of Christmas cookies.)  If you're keeping track, that's a total weight gain of 15 pounds.  Not horrible...but wow.  I was shocked.

Blood pressure, good.  Baby's heartrate, 153.  Stomach measurement, right on track with another 4 inches, making 29.

And, oh yeah, no gestational diabetes!  If you follow me on facebook you know how horrible the 3-hour glucose test was.  One of the worst procedures I've ever been through!  And the doctor told me there was a reason I felt soooo crappy: apparently by the final blood draw my sugar level had dropped drastically.  She told me I need to eat every 2 hours, all day long.  I said, ok!

I guess that's about it on the baby front.  Still feeling pretty good, besides the heartburn/reflux.  Feeling him move a ton, which is just the best thing ever.  I went and updated my registry at Babies R Us today.  Can't wait for his room to be ready!!  Can't wait for him to be here!!

Don't feel too bad about the weight gain. At one of my appointments I had gained 9 lbs in 2 weeks. The nurse who weighed me in said "that can't be right, let's try on another scale" and took me across the office to another scale and by golly it was right. Yikes! Baby boy just had a growth spurt ;-)

Jen, thank you!! She went to take my blood pressure after and I was like, well now it's gonna be high! :) I think it was a combo of the holidays, plus baby just getting bigger! I'm gonna try to be a little healthier with my food choices. :)

Jonnie, thanks!! I'm so glad too. Just wish I hadn't had to go through that test! Oh well. Don't worry, pictures will be numerous! :)
