Finally I had an appointment with NO, yep I said NO, weight gain!! I have been trying so hard to watch my calories and eat healthy and finally I feel like it paid off. The funny thing is that I did almost zero walking over the last 3 weeks. Between being sick and then just being plain busy, I became a slacker. I'm really hoping that the next 8 weeks go just like the last 3-4 have. Great progress with the baby and good healthy appointments for me. Baby Will is head down and the doc says he looks perfect.
I went to a breastfeeding class on Saturday and got some great information. I'm hoping that I can breastfeed but I'm not going to fall apart if I can't. There are so many health benefits for the baby and mom, that I would feel crazy to not at least give it a shot. The only thing that I'm worried about is Rich's involvment. He is such a hands on kind of dad and is adamant that he get his time with Will. I'm hoping that after the first couple of weeks we can work on him bottle feeding at least once a day. They say you should wait four weeks but by then I may be a total mess?? Guess we'll have to see how it plays out.
Okay gotta get back to work - the days aren't long enough anymore!
