My OB appointment on Monday was pretty boring. I weighed myself in the morning before I went, and I went back down to 1 lb less than pre-BFP, so my freak out last week over the pound I gained must of been just me needing to take a poop or something. A 2 pound poop to be exact. So I got weighed at the doctor’s office (which that scale also showed 2 lbs down from my last appt) and then pee in a cup and blood pressure. Dr. Dick came in and told me congrats on reaching the 2nd Trimester 🙂 He was really cute about it actually–had a big grin on his face. And then he pulled out the doppler and found LO’s heartbeat in just a few seconds. Such a beautiful sound 🙂 Then he pretty much just said to make an appt in 4 weeks for my Anatomy Scan and he’ll see me later….I was like, whoa…I have questions! So I asked him about my recommended weight gain since I was overweight before I got pregnant. He said that I am average weight for someone in Eugene/Springfield and that the recommendation is 35 pounds!! After I picked my mouth off the floor I told him I did NOT want to gain that much weight. He said he knows I don’t and then proceeded to break down how much everything weighs (which I have in my previous post) but I still told him I was thinking more like 15 pounds. He told me I would need to gain at least 20 pounds. Well, boo. But I guess it is better than 35! So my new goal is to gain 20. But he said that it probably will happen no matter what I try to do to control it. He said almost all of his patients gain the most of their weight in the end of 2nd Tri and 3rd Tri.
Symptoms?: Same still–had heartburn again the other night. That sucked.
Weight gain?: Nope
Best thing that happened this week?: Scheduled the Anatomy Scan for April 6th!!
Any baby-related purchases this week?: No
Milestones reached?: Um….14 weeks! :p
What size is the baby?: A lemon!
Belly picture: I think I look smaller in this picture compared to last week. I measured my belly this week and it was down 1″ so maybe the bloat is going away a little. That means the real bump should appear soon 🙂
