Hold the butter, wait, scratch that.

"Fatty Mcfatterson?"

"Present!" I scream as I wave my arm in the air.

Slight exaggeration but that's how I felt when I stepped on the scale this morning and tipped it at 110.2 kilos (multiply by 2.2 if you want pounds). Ugh. My pants are so tight on my belly that I feel I should be buttering myself up to get them closed. I can't zip them all the way up anymore and have been walking around the office with them totally undone with just my sweater pulled down over them to hold them up. Granted I have enough junk in my trunk to keep them from falling down but still, it's not a nice feeling to walk around with nothing between your privates and your coworkers but a sweater (well undies, but you catch my drift)! I'm going to try to go shopping this weekend and get something that's going to work a little bit better.

Okay so I haven't gained quite 5 full kilos yet. I'm on the verge of being at 10 pounds above my pre pregnancy weight. I'm in my 5th month (4.5 months actually) so that's about 2 pounds a month. As long as I can keep this pace I think I'll be okay but there's just a lot of growing to still do and I can't help but think "OMG I'm going to be enormous".

In the same breath I also want to yell "BRING IT ON BITCH!" because after struggling so long to even be pregnant I don't care if I gain one zillions kilos, I'll do it. This baby will be worth every single extra pound I have to take off once it's born... every single one.

We're totally excited for the March 5th appointment and are counting down the days! I hope you're all having a sucessful and healthy weeks!

Hmmm, I noticed that you stopped updating the weight in the column and you're not even bothering to convert the kilos to pounds anymore. Why?

And after this quote-

"In the same breath I also want to yell "BRING IT ON BITCH!" because after struggling so long to even be pregnant I don't care if I gain one zillions kilos, I'll do"

I thought that's no way to think of all this, because you've struggled even longer with your weight and a happy healthy mommy is a good mommy.
