I would apologize for my lack of check in yesterday but I hate to sound like a broken record, which is what it feels like lately when my blog is concerned. I forgot to get on the scale Tuesday but Monday morning I snuck a peak and weighed in at 111 which is slightly up from my last weigh in but not even by a full pound. I am on the brink of gaining more than my 2 pounds that I’ve allotted myself for each month though so I’m going to be as careful as possible and take some extra long walks in the forest with Scooter this weekend.

My ever expanding waistline tells me that I have gained though, or at least expanded in the belly region. Maybe I’m not really gaining in pounds but my stomach is just shifting, ya know what I mean? I have finally bitten the bullet and ordered some maternity pants from good old Lane Bryant and they should be arriving at my mom’s house for her to ship over here any day now. I got a really good deal, buy one get one half off, plus a $25 off coupon if you spend $75, which I did manage to spend after I threw in a new pair of cute undies! I cannot wait to get the pants because walking around with my pants totally undone is not really comfortable and you can see the little sticky outtie things from them being undone through my shirts. Not attractive in the least.

I’m still feeling really great. I really can’t complain at all. I sleep enormous amounts but hey, I’m building a human here, that’ll suck the energy out of anybody! I’m not having any strange cravings to speak of. I do want ice cream quite often but that was pre-pregnancy as well. In fact I’ve never had one of those pregnant woman moments where I just HAVE to have something right now or I’ll go crazy. Marco’s never had to put his pants on at 3 am and go down to the night shop to buy me pickles and chips. Actually if I didn’t have the scale going in the opposite direction I wouldn’t even know I am pregnant. Well, that and the sonograms showing me the baby and all. It’s a bit surreal for me still even after 19 weeks. I keep thinking that once the little pumpkin starts moving around so that I can feel it everything will magically become real for me but that moment has yet to arrive. I’m looking forward to it.

I hope you all are doing well and having successful and healthy weeks!
