Not much to say about this mornings visit to the doctor. I met the second doctor in the practice and she was very nice. The baby's heartbeat was good, my blood pressure was good and I'm measuring correctly.. the problem... I've gained 36lbs and I'm only 27 weeks along. Before I even said anything she told me I have to cut out the ice cream, apparently it is the downfall of all pregnant women. The current problem now is what do I do with the mega box of Klondike bars in the freezer. I would be okay I think if it just wasn't in the house, but come on. On top of that I made cupcakes for the lab today to celebrate a birthday so I have another 10 or so cupcakes in the house that I'm not supposed to eat. I honestly don't feel like I'm eating that much more than I used to but the scale doesn't lie and I've put on 5 lbs in TWO weeks. That is a bit crazy. If I can limit the weight gain to 1.5 lbs a week from here on out I will still have gained 51 lbs by the end. So much for my 35lb goal!!
In related events, I still have yet to find a stretch mark. I'm not naive enough to think I'll make it the entire 40 weeks without seeing any (especially considering the weight gain) but the later they show up the better.
