Hmmm....

So, this is me and Nadia at 23 weeks. I went to the doctor earlier on this day, and the doctor said that I needed to gain more weight. I bought myself some ice cream. (Don't worry, I know she meant "healthy" weight.) I haven't really been eating sweets during this pregnancy, so I thought I could splurge a little bit.

And for those of you who have been asking, Where's your belly?, I really don't think that these pictures do me justice. I think I'm bigger than this, really. I'm starting to have trouble bending at the waste and everything.

But last night, I really enjoyed watching my stomach change shapes as Nadia did some gymnastics before bedtime. Such an amazing feeling!

What a blessing to see both of your children growing big and strong :)

Do you have to do blood thinner shots like the doc's said you might?

I think you look great! Isn't it funny how everyone has an opinion...too big, too small for your point in pregnancy! There never seems to be a happy medium.

I just reached the 17 week mark yesterday and celebrated with a Reeses Peanut Butter EGG (for Easter!!! heehehe) It was a delicious indulgence since I try to stay away from sugar/carbs due to gestational diabetes with my last 2 pregnancies. Don't have it yet, but my OB said I could count on it...YUCK!!!

Best wishes on your continued health and wellness,

Valerie
