We went in for our 25 week checkup today. I have now gained 18 pounds since the start of my pregnancy. 18 POUNDS.
O. M. G.
So if I’m doing my math right (probably not) that means that I’ve gained 10 pounds IN A MONTH. Oh, and I’m a huge ginormous whale. My doctor very kindly admonished me that I am to gain no more than four pounds this month. BECAUSE I’VED ALREADY GAINED MOST OF MY PREGNANCY WEIGHT.
I’m so depressed. Good thing I have a bag of peanut butter M&Ms on the microwave.
In other news, my blood pressure was "perfect." I think it was 114/71 or something like that. The baby’s heartrate was 155 BPM, also "strong" according to the nurse. She found it right away! She also measured my belly, and it was right-on for 25 weeks.
We’ll find out about the gestational diabetes test tomorrow … if anything’s wrong the doc will call us. I was all jacked up for a while today after drinking the glucose drink which contained 50 GRAMS of sugar, but I’m sure I’ll pass. If I don’t it’ll probably be a good thing: If I have gestational diabetes I can’t eat sugar for the rest of the pregnancy and then that could help control my astronomical weight gain.
Thus, I leave you with my latest pregnancy photo:
