Funny That

I was thinking last night, "Wow. I'm not having a lot of pregnancy symptoms. It has been a long time since the last doctor's appt. Hmm... that could be concerning."

Then I looked over at the bathroom scale, which I haven't mounted for quite some time.

And I got on it.

I appear to be up 5 pounds or so... and... I WAS HAPPY ABOUT THAT.

Not so long ago that would have been horrifying... but... I know that 5 or so pounds in the first trimester is normal and healthy and I'm in my 10th week so I'm nearing the end of the first trimester. I took weight gain as a comforting sign and let the anxiety go.

eta- my weight wasn't up quite so much this morning. which is even better news. : )

I'm new here. I didn't realize K wasn't your first child. (i.e. the mother's day gift). But then I kept reading. SO!

YAY! This is WONDERFULLY exciting. Enjoy pregnancy and make sure to give yourself a break when you are tired and not to think about your body. Just enjoy it growing. This is truly good news.
