Now that my appetite has returned, I face a new challenge in this pregnancy. I gained entirely too much weight with the mackerdoodle. At the time I didn’t admit it, but it is true. I do not want to get as big this time as I did with the mackedoodle.
I’m off to a better start. By my 12 week appointment in 2007, I had already gained a lot more than the .8 of a pound this time, but I have to remind myself that I’m not actually eating for two. I also have to remind myself that a pregnancy isn’t an excuse to eat only potatoes and bagels – as delightful as that sounds.
So, now that I have almost conquered vomit, I’ve got to grow some self control and conquer my appetite – and maybe doing some exercise now and then wouldn’t hurt.
