Sheesh! Other than the nurse at my first appointment telling me I should only gain 15 lbs, my Dr. and nurse have been super nonchalant about weight, even when I was losing 4 lbs a week. They just kept saying "baby takes what it needs."

At my last appointment, my doctor did ask me if I was still losing and I told I gained back about 6 lbs and she said as long as the scale is going up now, that's good. They've never mentioned numbers after that first nurse I saw.

My sister gained something crazy like 70 lbs with her first. I was afraid that would be me, but so far I'm still about 20 lbs less than I was in November. I'm hoping I don't go crazy in the next few months, now that I can eat again. I'd be pleasantly surprised if I was within 15 lbs of my start weight by the end of this.

That, or maybe they just care more about the skinny girl gaining too much than the fat one losing it lol. Even at 25 lbs down, I was still about 20-25 lbs overweight. They just kept saying baby would live off the land!

Good news today- Russ got another call about preliminary interviews with another motorsports company in southern Oregon.

His interview with the first company went well but they won't be making a final decision for 2-3 weeks. It feels really good to at least have some potential options coming in!

Becca, that part about baby living off the land had me rolling! So funny! I was in a normal range with both the girls, and had the 35lb allotment. Lol This time all the charts at the ob says I should only gain 15. Lol impossible unless I lost fat while gaining baby and blood, uterus, placenta and all. My actual ob told me she'd be happy if I just kept it under 35. Good luck on the jobs! Having options should be great!

Kathy, this time we have different insurance and different drs hospital everything and they seem nicer about everything. Lol

I think a lot of the weight we gain is water. With Zari I was soo swollen in my ankles and feet. Socks cut into my ankles and eventually I could only wear sandals. After birth, I peed soo much for like 2 weeks.

With Lily my face was really puffy. I wonder where I am going to be swollen this time! So far not much of anything, but I feel like my wedding ring is a little snugger.

Mine was swollen from the middle of 2nd tri til birth. I was relieved with zari to have a normal face. Lol.

My side was really sore yesterday and under my belly and I hadn't felt her move at all. So, I was a little worried. But right now she's been moving a ton. So now I'm happy. I want her movement to be more regular instead of a ton one day and nothing the next. It worries me.

Yeah I hear you, I feel the same way. But it's still early. Soon enough there'll be muscle behind those kicks haha very soon!

I think I may have finally felt something last night. I was laying in bed with my knees up and felt a little "thump" or rumble in my uterus like a little wooden block falling over.

That was it, but I can definitely "feel" my uterus all the time and I feel like I'm almost feeling something much if the time when I first lay down, if that makes sense. I can't wait until it's obvious to me what I'm feeling!

That's how it starts becca! I always feel baby more when balled up. Guess we are squishing them!

Today it seemed almost like she was tickling me from the inside. I'm thinking maybe she had hiccups since it was vibration like.
