Boots Anatomy Scan....

So we went to the anatomy scan & an ob appt yesterday & it they were good!

Boots is measuring on target. Heart & brain looking good. And I only gained 1 pound!

I started at 126 & my ob still only wants me to gain 25!! wth?!?! Well, guess it's worth a shot, eh? I am still running & going to the gym, although I haven't run yesterday or today!! Yikes!!

Heres some pics. Hard to see her profile b/c she is shoved up against my uterus. Oh, she also nailed ed w/ a good kick last night. Hardest one yet!!

That's great about the scan. And um - no - I need you to gain as much as me at each appt - we are in this together! I gained 5 lbs the last month.

Go for it - put it on FB! Not like its up to anyone to judge you - even if they do, forget about them.

I'm sure I'll be with ya Jenn on the 5 pounds.

That's crazy your OB only wants you to gain 25! I started out at 125 and I'm on track to gain 40 my midwife said. Not that I'm proud, but she isn't worried (although I'm not particularly happy about it). I'm still doing my elliptical, so oh well, I'm doing what I can!

Great pics! Glad the scan went well and baby is healthy! And screw all those people who pass judgment on you... like they are perfect. Wink

THANKS LADIES!!

Jenn ~ How much have you gained total? We might be there together. I gained most of mine in the beginning.

Jules ~ I think she might just be saying that b/c I gained 60 w/ both of my other girls & she doesn't want me to go overboard again. I think her reasoning is that if she says 25 I will work harder & only gain 40. lol.

Great pictures!! And I always wonder why people have negative things to say about people being pregnant. Are they going to raise your baby? Do they provide the financial/emotional support? Nope, so keep your mouth shut!!

I've gained 13 (now 14, lol) lbs total so far. I'd love to know what I am on track to gain - how can you tell?

with DS I gained 50 on top of 15 lbs of fertility meds fluff - so I had to lose 65 after I had him. I know how hard that was so I would love to avoid that again. I'd be thrilled to keep my weight gain at 25-30 lbs.

I have gained 15 so far. See, we are right together for the most part Smile Just gained at different times.

I calculate it by just guesstimating what I think I'll gain the rest of the pregnancy. Is there some formula? Idk...

AND no negative comments on fb. Smile Phew, I just feel so free of negativity. Now everyone knows, no more secrets, blah, blah, blah.....feels like a weight off my shoulders.

I gained CRAZY my last 2 pregnancies. You are doing GREAT Jules. You have only gained 15 & you are on your way to being 3/4ths done. I have gained the same as you & I think I'm about 3 or 4 wks behind.

Congrats on a great scan! I got some negative comments from the first few people that I told when I first found out, because this is my fourth baby... so they were like, "Geez, haven't you ever heard of birth control?" I'm sorry, do I ask you to take care of my kids? No I don't, so I don't think it's any of your business how many children I have, thank you very much! I swear some people deserve to be mute! So when I finally did post it on FB (around 12 weeks) I said, "Yes, I'm pregnant again, and if you have anything negative to say about it do me a favor and keep your mouth shut because I don't need to hear it." Needless to say I got about 45 comments, all positive and wonderful lol! Good luck!
