Swimmy- that's so frustrating you aren't seeing progress. Hopefully it catches up to your weightloss soon.

How amazing you are starting your dream job! It will be no doubt a tough four months but it sounds like you have some great support to help out.

Krissie, it is the worst when they are sick! Bleh! I'm sorry you're on the gaining train this pregnancy. But overall, it's all worth it. Our bodies sometimes just do whatever they need to do (even if we disagree with them). This may be your last kiddo, right? If so, you have the rest of your life after this baby to worry about your body and weight loss. Might as well enjoy this brief time in your life (within reason)!

Swimmy, that schedule sounds brutal. No doubt you'll have some days you'll be questioning your decision, but long term it sounds like a great opportunity! 7.5 lbs in a month is awesome by any standards! You should be proud of that. I know I would be! I hope you see results in the mirror soon for all that work.

IRYM, how are you and the little growing nugget? I'm soooo on pins and needles waiting to hear the sex of the baby. This part is so fun because there's just no wrong answer or bad outcome... either will be soooo exciting, but I love knowing!

So I am trying to monitor my eating better. I did well the past 2 days, and crappy today (too many snacks and halloween candy, boooo). But I'll try to salvage today by taking a walk or doing yoga or something mild, drinking lots of water, and making dinner a good one.

MissDoc- yes, this is my last pregnancy. I think I have decided to just go ahead and have my tubes tied after this one. I know that I have no desire to have any more now so it seems to be the most logical thing to do. My DH has dragged his feet getting the snip and I don't want another surprise. I have decided to embrace the weight gain and not worry. So far it has been very stable and right on track and not excessive by any measure. Just way more than I expected since my son's was so different. I think I figured out how much baby and all the extra fluid weighs and I think I have only gained about 3 lbs on top of that.

I hope you are doing better with eating healthy. It can be so hard for sure!! I am trying to focus on eating healthy right now but sometimes it just sucks always being good.

IRYM- I hope your scan went well and you know baby's gender!!

Hey, gals! Sorry for being MIA again. Life gets hectic and then all I do is eat and sleep for days at a time. Lol!

I skimmed through all the recent posts to get caught up, sounds like thing have been more or less going smoothly! All except swimmy's LO being so sick.

Krissie - How's the weight gain doing now? Have you found anything that's helped you slow the gain?

Swimmy - I hope that new job goes well! It sounds like a challenge, but if it's your dream job, it'll be worth it!

MissDoc - Yes, it's been maintenance +300 cals, sometimes far more than that when I have one of those "bottomless pit" days that seem to pop up a couple times a week. I'm not losing any more and my thyroid seems to have slowed back to normal ranges, so that's good.

Cameobelle - Welcome to the group! Tell us a little about yourself?


AFM - just did the gender reveal on Saturday! It was torture waiting all week to learn the outcome, but now we know! It's a girl! :heart: That's what I was hoping for, I'm thrilled!

Congratulations on your little girl! Have you guys picked out a name yet?

I have finally stopped gaining. I've switched to eating protein first and then the carbs. It seems to be helping. Plus, I have really switched my snacks to focus on fruits and veggies. I've noticed better blood sugars as well so something is working.

Thanks!

Glad to hear you found something that works. I also focus on veggies and protein before eating carbs... usually. Haha

We've picked Guinevere (Gwen. I love the nickname Gwen!) as a first name, but we're stumped on a middle name. DH has shot down everything I've suggested. Dozens of names suggested, and he hates em all! Sheesh.

I thought that was what you said before. I absolutely love that name too. I hope you guys can agree on a middle name soon. That was part of our problem when coming up with a second boy name. We just couldn't agree. I was so happy when it was a girl.

DH really worked on the nursery this weekend. Now I just need to get it organized. I think I will aim to do that during Thanksgiving weekend. I plan to wash up my nb-3 mo clothes over Christmas break. It is crazy how fast time is going!! I am third tri today and that is just hard to wrap my brain around.

Aaahhhhhh so exciting IRYM! Congrats on your daughter. How awesome that it worked out in the direction you were hoping. SO thrilled for you.

Krissie, wow. Third tri? Crazy how quickly time flies. It's interesting though, while I was pregnant it felt like forever (probably because I was so anxious to move it along and have him healthy and safe so was counting every day) but when I look back at it it feels like the tiniest blip of time. And he's 6 months tomorrow and it feels like it has zoomed by.

As for me, health shmealth. Lol. I am a mess. I'll have a few good days then say eff it and jump face first into junk food and after a few days come up for air and realize I'm doing myself no favors. Trying to get it under control.

IRYM - yay!! a girl!!!! also i love the name you have picked out. There is something about older names that i've always loved. I bet that week of not knowing was super hard. Are you going to have a theme for your nursery?

Krissie - I can't believe your already in the 3rd trimester. time is flying by! I don't blame you for wanting to get your tubes tied if you know you are done after this baby. If i ever had a second one I would be getting it done after that for sure.

Doc - control is soooo hard!!! i just had a 3 day run of bad choices ugh! Only good thing about it is I pretty much only ate 1 meal those days (of all crap) so i didn't go too over my cals. why does food that is bad for you taste so good and is so much easier to make!!! I don't mind cooking good food, i just hate the prep work and the dishes afterwards. I can't believe your boy is already 6 months old! How is he doing?

AFM - It's getting harder and harder to work on my current floor at work. I'm just so over the drama and the BS. I probably will be eating those words in a few weeks when im over tired and my brain is fried of new information but right now its sounding pretty good. On an even better note I hit my 30lb weight loss goal!!! my friend spoiled me with a spa day. I cut 13 inches off my hair and had an amazing massage.
