this feels nice

It seems as though we are back online again. I almost feel like I shouldn't even write that--as it feels like I will jinx it if I do. For some reason it has been difficult to get things up and running properly, and to stay running at that, so I cross my fingers that I will continue to have my little laptop here, in the comfort of my own home, connecting me to the outside world.

I had two doctor visits this week and all continues to be well. My OB gave me a hard time about my weight gain, though. He said that it would be fine, if I were delivering next week. The thing is, I am a little person and have been a healthy weight my entire life, I'm eating healthy food, and while I do have a little extra on my rear parts I am still fitting comfortably into my size XS pants. So I told him that I am not concerned. There is a big baby boy growing in my giant belly and if that means that by the end of this pregnancy I have gained 35 lbs (or more) rather than the 25 that is apparently ideal, then I can handle it. I saw the Peri, too, and the cervix is still nice and long and showing no signs of opening or funneling.

I feel kind of like I did at mile 16 of my first marathon. I feel pretty good, like I can do this--I can even visualize the finish line and me crossing it with a giant grin on my face and tears of joy. But, at the same time, there are still a lot of miles to go. So, to continue the metaphor, I keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Glad you're back again. The connection process has to be frustrating, but don't take it as a sign that you'll be jinxed.

Don't worry about the weight gain. In order to lose weight, or stop gaining it, you'd have to starve yourself and the doctor doesn't want that either. Kepp eating healthy and doing what you're doing for this growing boy.

One foot in fron of the other.

Sounds really good all round.

Well, except the iffy internet connection. Our wifi works, but our printer is constantly breaking down. Drives me crazy. (or at least crazier)

OMG whatever. I hate the "weight gain" bull crap. EVERYONE is different and just because they averaged 500 women's weight gains doesn't mean its the norn technically. I gain 45 with Anders, I'm 5 feet tall and weight 98lbs when I got pregnant...it was a large 45lbs too. as long as that baby is healthy than who cares. SO glad all is well tho, such a wonderful thing to see when I check in!!!yay!!

I just wanted to let you know to not freak out too much about the weight thing. I remember gaining 12 pounds in 4 weeks somewhere in the "20s" weeks, and my doc about passed out. I ultimately gained 38 pounds. By the time I got home from the hospital I was only 12 pounds up from my pre-pregnancy weight, and a couple months later (no dieting) everything was back to normal.

So pooh, continue being healthy and don't stress!

Purchasing memory is such a big hassle... You have to search online for prices, sort through which ones are legit, go out to a bunch of electronics shops,compare prices, finally buy your memory, and then constantly pray that the price doesn't fall in the next month or so.

I've been screwed over by crazy price changes in the past... especially this one time when I bought a Micro SD card for my R4 gaming flash card at what was apparently a steal, only to later see that it had dropped $5 in a week's time.
