Yep - I still just appears to have huge boobs and a wobbly belly......not that I didn't have a wobbly belly before but at least I could blame it on skin rather than cookies and chocolate! On a happy note my boobs have gone from a 34A to a solid 36C in about 4 weeks........now if only I didn't have to roll them up and tuck them in to make them look semi-normal??!!
As for cravings - I spoke too soon. My complaints about watermelon and salsa are gone......now I'm craving chocolate and cookies and brownies and CRAP! Oh and don't forget cereal........I could eat cereal 6 times a day and not get sick of it. I do have to admit I am only allowing myself to eat puffed wheat which is pretty easy on the calorie bank (60 calories a cup). It is the most bizarre thing to find myself at the mercy of Captain Crunch and Betty Crocker......I mean what happened to my willpower - my drive - my determination. Ummmm, I got pregnant and tired I guess???
I am rather proud of the fact that I hauled my butt out of bed on Saturday morning for a spin class. I was afraid. Oh who am I kidding, I was freaking terrified!! I just knew that I wouldn't make it through the class without falling over but I did it. The last 20 minutes I had to slow down but I was busting it for the first 40 minutes. And I have discovered that it is true....it doesn't take long for your body to lose it's ability to exercise effectively.....my butt is still sore today!
Candace asked how the son and family reacted to the news that we were pregnant......well my mother freaked out - I'm talking crying, shrieking in the middle of her office. It was priceless. My dad hasn't wiped the smile off his face yet and he calls just about everyday to check on Jellybean and JM (Jellybean's Mom - that's me). Our son was excited but he's a boy so it was short lived and pretty much shadowed by the fact that his buddy was at the door wanting to shoot hoops. Really everyone has been so happy and so excited. We are so blessed to have such supportive family and friends.
Oh and guess what!!!!! We sold our house!! After 6 LONG months on the market we sold it and just in time......we can now close on our old house 11 days after we move into the new house. That is such a huge weight off my shoulders and I can't wait to be settled in and unpacked so I can concentrate on decorating. Not to mention I'm going to go from commuting 105 miles a day to 45 miles a day - my baby will know who it's mommy is!
Guess I should run and get some work done.......then home to pack - can I count that as cardio??
