Just came back from the doctor. I saw a new doctor in the practice today, and I was excited to go, because I’ve seen the same doctor since the beginning. And although I like him, I was excited to see a woman! Well, I was not a fan. One shocking thing was that I didn’t wait. AT ALL. I went straight back and didn’t even grade one paper (had a whole stack ready to do!) That was a positive thing. But the doctor was by the books, and I wasn’t a fan. The scale said I gained 6 lbs since 4 weeks ago (wayyyyy too much) but maybe because I had my boots on and a bulky sweatshirt? I can subtract 2 from that right? She asked if maybe it was the holidays? Oh I was pissed. So I’m working out at least 45 minutes a day, but most of the time over an hour, and I think I’m a pretty good eater. How the F am I gaining too much weight? I don’t think overall my weight gain has been over the limit, but from the last appointment it has been too much. Other than that, she said traveling to see my sister run the Disney World Marathon Jan 9 was iffy, and any pains I explained were totally normal. I just didn’t get a good vibe from this doctor. And now I just want the little peanut out of me. NOW!! I am having a pain right above my bellybutton and it is making me pretty uncomfortable – she thought it was the feet. She thought the head was facing down which is a good thing but how can she even tell from just feeling?
I was going to bake some xmas cookies tonight and now that is the last thing that I want to do. Instead I feel like I should go on the treadmill! I already swam (which was more like floating today blahhh) and went on the elliptical today(half assed since I graded papers at the same time). Boo hoo.
In the mail I got a training shirt from Dana Farber size XS. Is that possibly for the baby?? Maybe it would fit on my arm. It actually doesn’t look THAT small, but I’m not going near it until this child is out of me. Otherwise I will probably cry.
OPERATION HOLIDAY OBESITY now in effect! This means I’m watching what I’m eating. Maybe I ate too much cookie dough last week when I was making these eggless xmas spice cookies to freeze. And overall, really I’ve just been eating whatever I want when I’m hungry, so maybe I just overdid it. I feel like I workout enough that I can just eat whatever, but with the intensity and speed down to nothing, I’m burning alot less calories so I need to compensate for that (but still make sure I’m eating enough to feed another little person)!
- Limit breads and cheese
- Limit peanut butter
- Eat more veggies
- Limit holiday sweets
- Continue to eat 2 dove chocolates a day for sanity : )
- Count everything up and make sure I’m getting the right amounts until I’m back on track!
I’m done being pregnant. Ahhhhh!!! And I have a free Saturday. I couldn’t bring myself to be mature and sit through the class. 🙁 Instead I started watching a video on childbirth last night and had to stop watching because I wanted to cry. Never go to babycenter and watch videos.
