I have a midwife appointment today. I’ll admit I’m a little nervous. I’m not sure which midwife I see today but I have my fingers crossed its not the one “concerned” about my weight gain. I’m not concerned about it sooo…. And seriously I have a 5 lb baby inside of me…possibly contributing to the high numbers on the scale not to mention the 25 gallons of water I’m retaining in my legs and feet in case of a surprise drought. You can never be too prepared and who knows how many lbs 25 gallons of water weighs? Okay, someone probably knows but the point is I don’t know but I’m chalking all of that up to my weight gain. Not the honey bun I eat a lot of mornings or the ice cream,pizza and candy. I’m pretty sure that has nothing to do with it.
I’m also considering a multi-million dollar contract with either Weight Watchers or Jenny Craig to help snap back to my pre-pre-pregnancy form. I just figure, like Jessica Simpson, that the more I weigh starting the program the more amazing the results will seem when I drop the 150 lbs I’ve gained. Or will gain. I hope Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig appreciates the sacrifices I’m making for this as yet un-offered, un-signed contract.
I’ll probably post the results from the midwife appointment in the morning and I’ll post my belly pic along with that update. I’m huge. I’m starting to re-think that stretch mark comment I made in my last post. I don’t have to backtrack quite yet but it looks like backtracking is probably imminent.
The Nino seems to be happy in his little cocoon. Sorta off the subject but I’ve had to start giving Jimmy a bath almost every night now instead of the every other night we were getting away with for awhile. He just gets so dirty every day now. So with the increased baths I’ve been trying to picture two ninos in the tub…such a cute thought! I know it will still be awhile but I’m looking forward to it!
I just can’t seem to help myself – I’m sure its normal – but I keep trying to imagine what The Nino will look like, what his personality will be like and pretty much everything about him. Every time I picture him I see this little dark haired, dark eyed and at least a little dark skinned baby. Basically the Daniel to Faith. I imagined Jimmy being dark too and boy was I wrong. I know there is no way to know for sure until he’s born but that’s what I picture. Can’t wait to see how that prediction pans out!
Here is his Week 33 picture. I added a little creative editing to the picture…basically my stick figure type drawing in Paint. I laughed when I read the description on the Week 33 update - they predicted that he was just over 4 lbs….no…now he’s just over 5 lbs! Big papa!
