At my last doctor's visit, my doctor ranted and raved about how proud he was of my weight gain. I had only gained 1.5 pounds in four weeks. I tried to explain the the doc that this was strictly due to the fact that for about 90% of the day, looking at food made me want to do ANYTHING bug eat! I proceeded to tell him that when I started feeling better, he would no longer be so proud of me. That was followed with a little chuckle from him while he said, "o you will do fine!" Well, I am not doing very fine. I gained very quickly with Allie because all I wanted to do is eat, and it is happening again. I went to the grocery store and bought the following:
and the like. Guess where I was at after neatly stocking all of these yummy good for you foods? Yep, you guessed it! In the McDonald's drive thru lane ordering a McChicken and Fries!! I have found myself starting to roll my eyes and huff at skinny people, like it is their fault that I am outgrowing my MATERNITY clothes and I am only fifteen weeks pregnant. Yeah, don't think that the small maternity clothes are going to quite cut it this go round. Anywho, the good news is I will be having this baby a little early so maybe I won't break the fifty pound mark. I gained 33 with Allie, but I am home all day with this one and it is just so hard to keep my hands out of the Doritos bag. I need to quit kidding myself by saying that I buy those things for Michael! Come on Dana, he maybe eats two and the rest is consumed by little ole you!
I am getting SOOOO excited though. My sweet and precious friend Amber just had a little boy and he is so cute I could just eat him right through the computer screen. My sister just found out she is having a girl and she is only two days further along than me, so it is making this pregnancy seem more and more real! I could actually find out wether this little buger is a boy or girl.
Allie bug is doing wonderfully. Her speech is just getting better all the time. And get this, the girl knows her colors. She proceeds to tell me throughout the day things like, "purple pants, blue shirt, blue towel, green rag." I can't believe my little girl is growing up so fast!
Ok, I will give you a break from my novel. Hope to post soon. Also hope to get a camera next month so you can see how much Allie (and I ) have grown!
