i was dreading the post-thanksgiving weigh-in at my appointment today, and sure enough, i had gained 8 pounds in the last four weeks. that brings me up to about 28 pounds of total weight gain so far, and i had to listen to a little lecture from my midwife about how gaining too much weight during pregnancy is hard on my body. i'm definitely on track to gain 50 pounds like i did during my first pregnancy, maybe more. sigh. all i know to do is try to be more consistent about taking vigorous walks every day. i didn't exercise at all this past week while we were out of town visiting family. i try to fill up on healthy things like veggies and salad, and i rarely eat sweets since they make me nauseated. cheese and french fries are really my only vices, so i can try to reduce those. i'm not sure what else to do! i hate the dumb scale.
in better news, i passed my glucose test! i had to focus really hard on not vomiting after drinking the nasty juice, and baby was kicking around like crazy during my appointment due to all the sugar. my blood pressure and everything else was good and healthy. can't believe by my next appointment, i'll be almost 30 weeks!
