Best Diet EVER! ;)

I don't have a lot of time, but wanted to post a quick update.

Things are going good. We are adjusting well as a family of 4 (at least I think we are). DS1 is doing GREAT as a big brother. He is a huge helper to me, which I greatly appreciate. I've already gone out with both of them and it was a good outing, so that made me feel good.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments! You all are the BEST! I had a request for a close up picture of Zac so I will try to get that up this weekend.

Breastfeeding and childbirth truly is the best diet ever....I gained a total of 38 pounds (there's a funny story about that too--see below) and I am down 22# as of today. ;) HOORAY!!!

Funny story....on the day I went to the hospital (Wednesday night), I forgot to get on the scale that morning. I was thinking oh I would do it on Thursday morning before we left...until the doc made me come in Wed night. So, I made DH bring the home scales to the hospital with him Thursday morning so I could get on my OWN scale to see what I weighed before delivery. My goal was to not go over 205 (what I weighed the day I had DS1)....I weighed in at 204! WOO HOO!!!

Nursing is getting better. Had a rough couple of days but it's getting better. Zac had his days and nights confused Tuesday night and Wednesday night, but last night he did NOT and I got some great sleep...thank god. I needed that. Keep praying he stays on that routine. ;)

Gotta run...gotta get Zac to the doctor to check his weight to make sure he is gaining well. I'll try to post again this weekend. TRY being the operative word!

That is so awesome! I did ww while nursing and got to eat so much but the weight just melted away! Now if I had only kept it up. Sigh!

Can't wait to see a bigger pic. He is so darling tho!

So glad that you guys are doing well. I can't wait to see more pictures!!

So I went back and read some of your 1st trimester posts and I feel so much better knowing that I'm not crazy. I'm already so uncomfortable in some of my clothes that I am tempted to wear pj's to work. LOL So hearing that you were breaking out some maternity clothes early on makes me feel less like a freak!

I do have a question - did you exercise during your first trimester?? What did you do? I get conflicting information about my spin class - books say don't do it - other people say just take it easy......I don't know what to do?? I've been doing the elliptical for a half hour or so and I feel pretty good but just not sure about an hour long, high intensity class like spin? I do know that I have to do something or I'm going to end up the size of a house!! I've been eating carbs like crazy!

(((HUGS))) to you!
