Back from the doctor

And I've reached my goal of my first trimester, I maintained! Actually, this morning I was down 2lbs, but I think that has most everything to do with the flu and the fact that I've hardly eaten the past day and a half. But I couldn't have lost more than 2 lbs, so I'm assuming that if I hadn't of had the flu I would have maintained.

I'm quite happy that I did reached my goal - especially over Christmas. I think it has everything to do with going to the gym.

I gained so much weight with Carson and honestly didn't have a great pregnancy (acid reflux, headaches, bloatiness) and I chalk most of that up to my rampant weight gain. I got pregnant right after I lost all my weight and I ate everything I could get my hands on and blamed it on being pregnant. I ate everythign I felt I had deprived myself of over the past 3 years and made up for it (and then some) in those 9 months.

At this point in my pregnancy with Carson I had gained 7 lbs. Reading my blog I said "that's not bad" but seriously - it was. I was in denial since day 1!

So far this pregnancy I have felt wonderful (and that's WITH having morning sickness). I have energy, I'm not tired, no headaches, no acid reflux... it's great. A totally different pregnancy.

Anyways, I'm not turning this into a pregnancy blog but I will probably touch on it every once in a while. And I'm feeling MUCH better, thanks for the wishes.
