If you think that the title of this entry means that I have gained 10 lbs since I became pregnant, you're wrong. If you think it means I've gained 10 lbs above my normal weight, you'd be wrong. If you think its even possible that I've gained 10 lbs in 4 weeks then *ding*DING*ding*, you would be our winner!
I had my 26 week appointment this morning and can say it is official, I have gained 10 lbs since I was there at 22 weeks. This to me is something that I am appalled at, seriously. I began my pregnancy at my normal weight (which since I was 15 has been), 127, and through my first three months lost 7 lbs. I gained back 9 lbs in the first two months of my second trimester and in the last month of it, have gained the most recent 10 lbs to bring me to a grand total of 139. If anyone wants to know my opinion of this it is very simple... UGH! :)
In other news, the Brooke's heartbeat was very strong at 155 bpm and my blood pressure was even better at 98/60. I am going to have to start supplementing my prenatal vitamins with a crazy high dose of calcium, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. I have orders to go for my glucose screening in the next couple days but don't know when I will. I could do it tomorrow or Friday, but am scared that doing it before work will cause me to be exhausted all day, ultimately affecting my performance at work, which I don't want to happen. The other option is to wait until next Wednesday which is my next day off without a morning doctors appointment. We'll see.
As some of you saw on facebook/myspace, last night I went and bought a car. It was a very interesting night since it is the first time I've ever personally bought one. Its a 2000 Kia Sportage that has 83000 miles on it and it runs great. It will definitely make putting a car seat in and out much easier on my back which was the main reason we wanted a small SUV. We picked the car up in St Augustine and when we left I stopped at the Maternity outlet to look at some pants. I finally found some jeans that fit me in the legs and still have room for me to grow some. :) Yay!! So I won't look like an old lady at work in my pregnancy pants! (its a small victory yes, but I'll take it!)
