ob appt today

I had my 24 week appointment! All is going well except my weight gain. I have been eating a lot more fruits and veggies, salads and stuff. I just can't understand how I am gaining so much weight I started this pregnancy at 170s or so and am now 230. Blech

I am going to try and eat even healthier and not as much because I don't want to increase the chances of him being too big to deliver. I don't want to have a c-section. It would truly destroy all my plans for this birth. I was medicated and everything for my last two births and want to do this all naturally. So I really hope I can get this under control somehow so that I can do this the way I want.

So my next appt will be the glucose test and if I have another big weight gain they will take a look at the baby and make sure he isn't getting too big!

He is very active and loves kicking mommy all the time. I love that feeling as well! He can move all he wants. I want to cherish the feeling as long as it lasts because I know it will be over before I know it.

So here's to hoping I can get this under control so I can have a natural labor and delivery!

I will be posting pictures pretty soon.

Welcome to all my new followers and thanks for following.
I need to make an about me post as well...soon.

thanks for stopping by my blog!

as long as you are eating healthily and the doctors doesn't find an underlying medical cause- I think our bodies know what they need to gain.

We are only able to control so much (which isn't much in the long run) and I doubt it would destroy all your plans for this birth- as I'm sure your main goal is to have a healthy baby- and sometimes those come via C-Section or other means..

so, just relax. Trust God. Trust your body.

Congratulations on another addition to your family! Thank you for stopping by my blog--

I hope that your doctor's appointment goes well and everything is fine. Stress is as bad or worse for a baby as weight gain-- so don't be to hard on yourself!

Thanks for leaving an encouraging note on my blog!!! LOVE your photos on your blog...adorable littles!!! I hate weight gain in pregnancies...its hard, cuz I would justify eating mac and cheese (the powdered kind, yuck) every day. My husband almost gagged :) hahahaha. You'll take it off once that baby boy is out!!! good luck on the glucose test!!. :) Stop by again!!! :)
