Yeah that would stink! Maybe you could just return/exchange everything if that happened but it'd still be a pain in the butt!

Yeah. I'd be upset now if she turns out to be a boy after all these hours I have spent already name searching! Lol!

So monday night dh did the flooring in this restaurant/bakery and when ever they go to that job site he always brings home goodies. So yesterday when he came home he had a ton of chocolate chip cookies that were so good. I couldn't even tell you how many I ate. A good stack of them lol. I couldn't stop. I'm trying to avoid them now as I don't want to get started on them!

That's been my biggest craving! I think because they're kind of salty and sweet. I haven't had much of them though since I'm sure it'd go right to the scale for me!
I just bought all the decorations for the gender reveal party! I'm SO excited!! Definitely have a feeling I won't get the call to pick up the envelope until Monday and then I'll have a long and torturous 6 day wait but I can still hope they'll call by Friday!
I went on amazon and bought cups, plates, napkins, a banner, balloons, stickers, and confetti that all say boy or girl? Plan to throw the pink if girl, blue if boy after a scavenger hunt to find the envelope with the big answer!
And I bought pink and blue silverware, bead necklaces and streamers. I'm all set with decorations and games are all made up too. Now we are thinking of treats and prizes. Pink n blue mnm cookies, pink n blue cake pops, are what Scot and I are going to try making ourselves. Then I'm going to buy a cake that says boy or girl. I'll act like the answers in the cake and then when people don't see colored icing I'm going to tell them they'll actually be going on a scavenger hunt! I'm so excited!

Aw, sounds fun Kathy! Hopefully they call before Friday. That would be an agonizing wait, especially if the call comes on Monday and you have to hold onto it until next weekend!

I have been craving donuts for a couple of weeks now. Even though I got the all clear from the surgeon, he did say to eat a "sensible" diet. I'm pretty sure donuts are not part of a sensible diet, unless you are one of those people who can eat 3 bites and stop. I cannot lol.

Due to weird schedules yesterday and an unplanned trip down to my parents' an hour and a half away, I found myself starving with only fast food to choose from.

I ended up eating a cheeseburger happy meal, chased with 2 donuts. While it all tasted pretty darn good, it was a mistake to eat all of that. I woke up this morning totally nauseous. I threw up a ton when I got up and then ate breakfast which usually helps, but I ended up needing to go back to bed for a couple of hours. Note to self- junk food just not worth it. :(

I kind of wish I had problems like this before pregnancy... I never would have been overweight!

I haven't been craving sweet at all, but once I started...lol I couldn't stop! That party sounds like so much fun! Have you ever made cake pops before? I'm a pretty good baker, but I have the darndest time with those! They always fall off the stick or in the dipping chocolate. Dh loves them, but I'd rather just make a cupcake! So much easier!

Aww no becca! Next time get a side salad. Lol.

Nope never made them before. I found the recipe on dunkin donuts webpage. We buy the donut holes from them. Maybe I'll just dip half and let it dry before putting stick in undipped half.
Sorry that junk food treats you so bad Becca! I could go without fast food but if I couldn't have sweets one in a while I'd go crazy.

I think it probably had to do with the quantity rather than the food itself. I'm guessing if I ate a normal dinner, the donuts wouldn't have bothered me, and I would have been able to handle the happy meal, had I skipped the donuts.

They were really good donuts... And now that I got sick from them, I'm not craving them anymore, so... That's good right?

I ate bad yesterday too, it was our date night so he wanted to go to Sonic. I didn't eat the whole meal but did have a hotdog and strawberry cheesecake shake. It was so good! I haven't been there probably since I was pregnant with my daughter so I don't feel TOO guilty but if I have to hear about my weight gain at my next appointment I'll be so depressed! I'll just do my best and only eat sweets once a week or something.

I don't remember my weight gains with zari, but I remember with lily, at 20 weeks I was up 5lb from starting weight and gained a total of 38. With zari i gained 45. I gain all my weight usually in 26-36 weeks. So I usually pack it on then! Hoping to not do that this time. I'm not craving sweets, so that really helps. I just can't get started on them though!

With Jadyn I didn't gain a single pound until a month before 3rd trimester. I guess I figured that was how my body would act this time too but no! I put on like 50 pounds but 30 came off by 2 weeks after having her. So I was really up 20 pounds from before pregnancy. And I lost the extra 20 within a few months from nursing.
I know I can get it all off again but I just don't like the looks on the nurses faces. It's like, relax ladies!

I know I hate the disapproving looks and nagging! I think as long as you don't eat like a complete pig all the time, your weight will do whatever it wants. I was really relieved to have only gained the 1 pound I had lost. So still at starting weight right now. I really hope t keep it to a minimum, but I am not going to freak out this time about it or let them make me feel bad.

Haha they don't always care! With lily they were chewing me out for gaining 9 lbs in 4 weeks and had me do a paper of what I had eaten the day before. I had eaten a veggie dog and bun and they kept arguing with me that a hotdog bun counts as 2 servings of bread! Idk how. Its one thats split. Lol. Dh and my sis were there and they kept going on and on about my weight. So annoying.
