Doctor Appointment - 32 weeks

I went to my doctor appointment. The doctor tells you to gain 25-35 lbs. during pregnancy. Well I have gained 20 lbs. and I still have 8 weeks left. My goal was to only gain 25 lbs. but the baby grows so much toward the end that I will be shocked if I can meet my goal. I am usually a very active person. I usually workout at least 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hr., 4 days a week. But in December my ribs started giving me problems and in January my pelvic muscle got pulled. I have been waddling ever since. It hurts more to move. So I been a couch potato for the last 4 months. Needless to say, my target weight gain may be hard to achieve. My baby boy is such a good boy! He is turned in the correct position, head down! I am so proud of him. I can't wait to welcome him to our family. I am excited to share this experience with Aaron. He'll be a fun father. Aaron has been so good to me this pregnancy. He gives me a lot of back rubs. And he is always ready to help me with housework if I ask. Even though I am the one that likes taking care of others, this experience has been good for us, to have Aaron take care of me. It really has brought us closer together.

  1. DANG IT!! You really need to find all of your camera stuff and get some pictures posted. I want to see recent pictures of everyone!! I'm sorry you have to be a couch potato, that's probably hard for YOU. I've never known you to be inactive. MAN!! I wish I could workout as much as you. 1 1/2 hrs??? REALLY?!?! That's like Chuck. He drives me nuts, I wish I could be more active (no wait, I wish I ENJOYED being active)...I just hate it though. :o) Hope everyone is doing well!!
