I have been slacking like WHOA! Totally crazy busy (that sounded really 'Clueless' of me). Lots to talk about - this whole baby thing and my crazy body and emotions. Just everything holy hell. Let me start with my little survey thinga ma boober.
· How far along are you? THIRTY2 (32 for all you non-funky people)
She is the size of a honeydew yummm..
· Total weight gain: 208.. Just now - at 8:51 PM. I usually fluctuate about 3-4 lbs from night to morning while sleeping. Here's to hoping I didn't actually put that much (weight) on. I go to the Doctors office tomorrow morning. I went for a nice little walk tonight and felt great.
*NOTE: I'm a person who worked my whole adulthood to maintain a weight/look, I've never been 'model thin' I love the curve of my muscles! Gym daily and I ate reasonable but I am here to tell you to LISTEN TO YOUR BODY! I was told to continue to workout, which I tried. It is so difficult to go to the gym and not do the routine that you are used to. Or being looked at because your getting a belly. It is/was very difficult for me to walk into the gym with my (amazingly) in shape husband. So I walked, there are days where I WANT to and actually crave a walk. On days where I didn't want to and forced myself to walk I lazily went out on an adventure and it actually hurt to walk. My feet couldn't fit into sneakers, I got blisters, I couldn't drink enough water (I did carry a bottle with me) and I would be out of breath 5 minutes into it. Listen to your body ladies. Yes, I am going to have to start at square one when I am able to get back into the swing of the gym again, but ya know what? I am going to do it and it will be a challenge that I am completely excited about!*I've decided to keep this in these posts. I am not ashamed of my weight and I stand behind what I said last week. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY! Only YOU know how you are feeling.

· Best moment this week?: Hub was drunk on the way home from the wedding, I was driving he put his hand on my belly and Skyler was going BONKERS - then he starts poking my belly back after every kick. When I asked what he was doing he said "She kicked me I'm just showing her who's boss". lol I couldn't make this up if I wanted!
