Can you believe how much I have grown in these past six months?! I have gained a total of 14 pounds since conceiving and most of that has been in the past month and a half. And I am only going to keep growing!!!
I honestly had no idea how small I was before getting pregnant until looking at these two photos side by side. It makes me confident that I will be able to lose all of my pregnancy weight by working out and eating right :)
So far I have done well to stay in the healthy range ... I was on the lower end of the weight gain until about month 4 due to morning sickness, but I quickly caught up and am now smack dab in the middle of the recommended weight gain :) Oh and I can no longer take photos in my bathing suit bottoms because ... well ... they no longer fit :-/ hahaha!
This morning I stood on the scales (as I do at the same time every week to ensure that I am gaining the weight I need to gain) and was quite shocked to have passed the 120 pound mark ... I am now at 121 pounds! For me that is a lot because I am a petite person who has never weighed more than 108 pounds. So I said to Josh, "I'm getting fat." .... to which he replied, "Yes, but it's a beautiful fat." .... One of the many reasons that I love my man :) He always knows how to make me feel better :) I love you!!! <3
Anyway, I am going to go and not eat ice cream .... wait, do we have ice cream? .... mmmmm ice cream :-D
