I am now 5 days off the 2nd trimester... time sure is flying. I'm also nearly 1/3 of the way through the pregnancy!!! *eek* Rupert will be here before you know it!
I had my doctors appointment last Thursday. Everything went well. Saw Rupert on the ultrasound which was just lovely. Little arms and legs thrashing about, did a big ol' stretch and turned to face the camera (perhaps he knew he was being watched?). My obgyn told me he would be happy if I didn't gain any more weight during the pregnancy. I weighed in at 97kg, which means I've gained 3kg since beginning of September. So, that's my aim - not to gain anymore weight. But I'm not going to go stupid and no eat or get more fill in my band. At the moment my band is still restricting me from eating large meals but I'm able to eat almost all types of foods (salads, veges, fruits in particular) with next to no problems which I am happy with. At the end of the day I'm going to do what is right for a happy and healthy pregnancy. The band is definitely NOT letting me eat for two - lets just put it that way!
Morning sickness has decreased even more over the past week and I'm now back at the gym and doing some nice lovely walks outside. Definitely coming out of the funk I was in and starting to feel like my old self. I'm starting to get a little bit of a bump, but it definitely just looks like I've gotten fatter rather than I'm pregnant! We're trying to keep it a secret until christmas day but it's getting harder and harder not to talk about it to people!
Next ultrasound is booked for 14th December. That's when we will do the Nuchal Transleucency Scan to test for downs syndrome - wish us luck!!! We also will get some photos to take away with us so I'll definitely post them up on my blog for you to see!
Thanks for reading! Have a lovely day!
