Apparently I gained 7.5 lbs between 20 and 24 weeks. My doctor, who I love, by the way, said, “It’s not a big deal…but let’s try and only gain 12 more lbs the rest of the pregnancy.” (Insert my silence). 12 more lbs? The baby herself will be gaining 6-7 lbs. Plus, my will power to cut out sweets is non-existent.
Actually, that’s an understatement.
At the end of the month I’ll have my routine tests – gestational diabetes screening, another AIDS test, an anemia test – and another ultrasound to make sure my placenta is on board with the idea that Anna needs to come out first, not second.
