Holy Baby!

Holy Baby! I had an OB appt today.... I have gained 10 lbs this month! 10!!!!! I am attributing some of it to our 5 day vacation at the beach last week. Hopefully I'm still retaining some water. She has me at 25 weeks, but my belly was measuring 28 weeks. So it could also be that LO just had a big growth spurt. Either way, I will be watching what I eat more closely. I go back in 3 weeks for my sugar test. Fun. My goal is to eat well between now and then to limit my weight gain and hopefully not end up with GD.

This pic is from today.

No matter what, I LOVE your belly! I wish mine was more round and pregnant like. She's pushing up all my organs a bit earlier so the top is very tight and the bottom is loose. I was amazed I passed my sugar test. They did mine early cause I'm a fatty heh. You probably are retaining water cause it's gotten hot.

Thx. Smile The top of my belly is tight too and the bottom is loose fat and exta skin left over from having twins. It almost looks square sometimes... :/ this is the most I've ever gained in a month. Even with A&A I gained slower. Really hoping its the vacation/hot weather. But I'll be watching it nonetheless.

You look great!! I lost two pounds at my last appointment. I failed my one hour test and then I passed my three hour test. My next appt is in two weeks and I have to take another test. I can't remember if it is a three hour test or an hour. I love your belly.
