Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

Hi everyone!

I'm posting a bit late tonight because I've been catching up on some blogs. This is one of the nights I like to do that because I'm not working out, which reminds me I have this week and next week left to get in work-outs before the baby is due.

I'm due in fourteen days!!

Although, I did have this thought tonight that, "what if I go overdue by ten to fourteen days? I did with baby #4?"

I told my husband that and he's like, "won't happen. You better get an absentee ballot, because he's coming out on election day (Nov. 2, his due date)."

It just feels so surreal to be getting closer and closer to my due date. I've started to get phone calls and unannounced visits from people who want to know how I'm doing and 'has the baby come yet?'.

It's all kind of fun. Heck, I was able to talk to a good friend last night who called "wondering". We used to be best friends growing up. She has eleven children and they are all boys.

But I don't really feel like anything spectacular is happening right now. I go to see my midwife tomorrow (Tuesday). I spose they may check me out to see if anything is going on. It will be a different midwife than the last one. I alternate with my midwives so I can get to know them all because you never know who will be on call to deliver your baby.

I will say, though, that I had some more stomach pains after I blogged last night. It hurt so bad that I called the nurse advisor again, but by the end of the conversation it had abated. I'm not sure what that was all about. It happened three times yesterday. I don't think "gas X" was the solution. Maybe tums would have been more helpful. I did later wonder if the raspberry green leaf tea or evening primrose oil could have been causing a reaction in my stomach. I'll have to ask the midwife tomorrow.

Other than that, I have actually lapsed a little the last few days with my perfect diet. My downfall has been cereal and milk. It's not been terrible, but I need to stop. I wonder if my eating sweets on the weekend opened the door to cravings.

I am still counting calories though. A commitment I intend to keep to the end and beyond the baby's birth. I take each day as it comes, and if I don't eat perfect one day, I will strive to do better the next.

Well, I think that's it for tonight. I hope you are all doing well.

I'll let you all know how the appointment goes tomorrow.

Have a good one!
