Scales, Doctors & Pounds Oh My!

~Last Monday I went to my monthly checkup at the doctor's office. I began the typical routine by jumping up on the beloved scale. I saw the numbers keep going and going until they stopped at a number I hadn't seen in a while...

The nurse let out a...
"Yahoo!"
I let out an...
. "Oh my!"



















Can you say growth spurt? ~Let's just say I gained as much in the last 30 days that I had in the first 4 1/2 months combined. ...8 pounds in 1 month! 
-1 MONTH People!Isn't that like 3 oz. a day or something? And I still have 3 months to go! How much bigger can I get?  Whew! And let me tell you I could show you where each of those pounds went to! (I'll spare you on that.) My body is trying to figure out where to put this baby. For instance after I eat a meal, I have to arch my back just so my lungs can breathe. Painful! I have NO TORSO which doesn't make any of this any easier.

I've come to the reality that the belly is just getting
bigger from here on out. Goodness-it's sure funny how the pregnant mind really does forget all of this stuff. You'd think I'd be a pro at this by now. But -Nope!

The
wonderful part about it all is that my little baby boy is growing...and growing each day. Thursday at the dentist he was doing all kinds of gymnastics as he heard & felt the vibration of the doctor drilling my tooth. It was so fun to have him jumping around. I actually enjoyed the experience of getting a crown on my tooth! How funny is that?
*Isn't He Cute?*

Daylan has been so sweet lately with my pregnant self. I've been so exhausted these past few weeks that whenever I lay down I immediately fall asleep.-SO not like me! I'll usually awake to Daylan, my prince charming, kissing me out of my slumber. Often times he'll kiss my belly and say "I love my baby."

-makes all those pounds worth it!

Wow! I am sure it's not going by fast for you but for me... I can't believe you only have 3 months left. It has flown! You always look so cute pregnant! I wish I had your skinny arms and legs as a pregnant woman. Lucky girl! It's all good weight and well worth it (as you know)!

You look great! Obviously your belly is growing---thank goodness, but everything else looks just as skinny as ever. I can't wait to see this little baby in real life! He is absolutely gonna be cute and lucky to have such a sweet big brother in Daylan. Have you decided on a name yet? Is it Max?

waaaa! Try 75lbs in 5 stinking months! Y es, that's what I packed on with Jaden, and I kept asking my super oversized OB if that was ok and he said, yea, it's healthy. LIAR!!! You look adorable. I gain 8lbs a month for the last 5 months, you're good. I love that even the little tiny skinny girls freak out about weight gain though. Nice post! haha, Hey, my e mail isn't e mailing to your e mail...what's the deal? Do you have a different e mail???

Still CUTE!

Oh, brother! I know, I know, it's cute when it's someone else gaining the weight. But, I can honestly say, I'm right there with you and I don't look nearly as cute as you! Knowing you, the weight will be gone by the time you get out of the hospital, while my next child will be three and I'll still be claiming, "I just had a baby!" Ha, ha

You look great!! All baby!

AudyCamp said...

You guys are all way too NICE!! I really wasn't looking for compliments but hey they always help. Not like I think I'll be on the Biggest Loser soon or anything it was just shocking to gain so much so fast!

& yeah Jamie you're right it IS always cuter when someone else is pregnant! I'm sure when I look back at this in a year I'll think "Aw cute...my pregnant belly." ..just not now!

& Kristal...Miss model -you are AWESOME to have gotten to where you are today. Props to you girl!

oh goodness, 8 lbs is nothing. I've gained 5 lbs in ONE week...multiple times in a ROW. YOU are gorgeous dawling!

Heather Jeppsen said...

You look great! Did you not see my last prego picture? You can get bigger. Or at least I could. I thought I was huge with Chase and then I looked at a picture of me with Chase and then me with Perry. Much bigger. I don't think you'll get that big though. You look awesome. Enjoy it! But I'm glad I'm done for now.

Lace said...

Very cute pics! I had the same thing happen to me last month. I had stayed the same weight for a few months, and then jumped up 7 pounds in one month! I was a bit surprised myself, but oh well. At least the babies are growing, right? The other day a girl in my ward who is 18 weeks pregnant, but not showing AT ALL said to me, " I just can't believe how BIG you're getting!" I wasn't quite sure how to take that--with a grain of salt, I guess. =)
