Weight Gain

So I weighed myself this morning after not stepping on the scale for two weeks, realizing I've gained an additional 4 pounds ! This is ridiculous ! Ah ! I don't know what to do ! This is too much for me (don't get me wrong, I love my son and NEVER will regret having him), this weight gain is out of control. I have to admit I've snacking like crazy, and I just won't stop, it has to stop.. it really has to stop ! I've already gained a total of about 18 pounds throughout this pregnancy of 24w5d, how much more will I put on?! I'm going CRAZY.

Six Months

Your baby has caught up with an ear of corn in size and gained about 1/4 pound since last week. (Length: almost a foot.)

Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he's almost a foot long, he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

I already for the love for my son. I can not wait to meet him, I've said that a million times but I can't help it. November, please come quick !

Please Consider a Pregnant Woman's Feelings

I've been getting quite a few of those "You're getting big" comments lately. Yeah, thanks I think I already know, and also I believe that's what happens when you're pregnant if you haven't already realized.

A close friend of mine said to me yesterday "You're getting BIG! But your stomach is still small!" What the fudge is that supposed to mean, why don't you just say what was really on your mind, like "OH you're fat!" Sheesh. Like I want to get fat, uhuh.

I used to starve myself or eat once a day only to stay thin. However, now that I'm pregnant things must change. I now eat 3 times a day and I'd eat healthy things that I wouldn't eat before. When I'm hungry, I eat... or else I'd feel like I'm starving the baby. It's not MY FAULT that I'm getting fat, this is for my baby's sake! Wth do people expect me to do, go on a diet while pregnant? Sheesh. I can't do ANYTHING about it until my son arrives, okay? So please consider a pregnant woman's feelings, THANKS!
