So, today was midwife appointment number 3. I gave 4 vials of blood, had good PH levels, and got to hear that sweet little heart beating for the first time! And it came through at 150. I couldn't help but smile :) That's one of the most awesome things during pregnancy, besides feeling movement. Which, I think I'm finally starting to feel! Little flutters :)
Anyway, I didn't get weighed today, but I *think* I'm at around 157 or so. My scale is so not accurate, so that's just a rough guess. I'm definitely gaining faster this time than I have before. I think it's time to step back, and start eating healthier and try not to worry about the pounds packing on. I'm thinking Keith will absolutely DIE if I follow through, but I'm really thinking about cutting out all beef and pork. Sounds drastic, I know. But right now beef just grosses me out anyway, and makes me feel sick, and pork just isn't very healthy. Anyone have some good chicken, fish, or vegetarian recipes? Low fat?
I'm hoping to go to some classes starting up next week, all about healthy lifestyle changes. Taught by my friend Candice, who just happens to be the Dietitian at our local clinic. Should be fun and informative. I love learning. Especially about how to take care of my body better.
