I had an OB appointment Friday afternoon and along with the facts that I am healthy and the snickerdoodle appears both healthy and head down, I learned that I had gained exactly 0 pounds since my last visit 3 weeks ago. I think a stomach flu at the beginning of the week may have helped.
Now you’ve seen the picture of me. You know I’m not a poor, malnourished pregnant woman. I should have taken this as an indication to continue on in a positive way.
Instead I ate an entire bag of jelly bellies. Because I hadn’t gained any weight.
These are the sorts of justification games I play with my own mind.
