I'm posting a little late, but that's because I began reading another good Jack Reacher novel today.
I hope everyone's Monday went well.
Today marks my sixth week of counting calories. I have four more weeks about or 29 days until I am due.
Since I've been counting calories I have stopped gaining weight at the insane rate that I had been gaining. I had been gaining between two to two and a half pounds a week. So, not only can I celebrate the fact that I am not carrying twelve additional pounds that I would have probably kept gaining because of bad food choices, but I can celebrate the fact that I feel so awesome.
I am eating clean with no sugar and no flour. I feel healthier because of it. And I feel optimistic about not having a huge amount of weight to lose after the baby is born.
Now, the only thing that is getting bigger is my baby belly. And I must say I am very proud of it. Yesterday I wore a stretchy, long non-maternity sweater that nicely covered my baby bump. My husband told me I looked good and I felt good. (Just wish I had a picture to show you. But I feel like my belly has this nice rounded look.)
On Wednesday, I will get checked out again and I'll find out if my belly has grown any since last Thursday.
I have had some contractions today and this evening, but not as much as I was having last night which makes me think the extra activity yesterday really did get my contractions going last night.
Well, I hope you all have a good day Tuesday!
