I'm 23 weeks pregnant now and I gained 7 pounds according to the doctor's office. According to my records I gained 10 pounds, but no one seems to care about my records. Anywho... at first I was excited. Only 10 pounds and I'm halfway through?! That's awesome! Then I made the mistake of looking through my previous pregnancy book. I was at the same weight gain at the same point in time and somehow I still managed to gain a total of 40 pounds by the time delivery came. Sigh. Am I just destined to gain a ton of weight during pregnancy?!
There's definitely one thing different about this pregnancy -- it's a BOY! Let's hope that brings a lot of differences; like not being 5 days overdue, not waiting 2 years to lose weight, and successful breastfeeding. I hope the easy labor and delivery part stays the same.
