How in the world...

could I have gained 2 1/2 pounds since yesterday? And in a fit of disbelief I weighed myself after 30 minutes and I'd gained another 1/2 pound -- and I didn't have anything to eat or drink in the interim!

I know I can't be too concerned about my weight right now. And trust me I'm not trying to lose weight (in fact I've been pretty bad about what I've been eating lately), but until yesterday I was quite happy to have only gained about 3 to 4 pounds seeing as I started off this pregnancy 20 pounds heavier than I was a year and a half ago and 25 pounds heavier than I was when I got pregnant with my daughter. I guess I'd better start thinking a bit more about what I put in my mouth. I sure don't need to gain too much with this baby. Both because I don't want to be faced with a 60 pound weight loss next summer and while I didn't have gestational diabetes with my daughter, I am 6 1/2 years older and we have quite the family history of diabetes. Oh well, I guess it's a good wake up call, because weight aside I know that junk food is bad for me and the bumblebee and that we both need good healthy foods.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Thanks so much for your comment. I appreciate the support. I will give that a try. Well once I get out of the hospital that is!

I wish you the best of luck with this lovebug!

That happens to me too...it's truly mind boggling. I'll weigh myself and then a few hours later w/o eating or drinking and possibly even after going to the bathroom and I'll weigh more. Drives me up the wall! I'd rather not finish this pregnancy over 200lbs, but it looks like I'm headed in that direction. *sigh*
