Default Exciting News

Well I have some exciting news. I知 expecting! I have no ideal of my due date, but I知 guessing I知 about 5 weeks so that would put my due date sometime in early February. DH and I are very excited, but we really haven稚 told anyone yet. We want to wait until I go to the doctor and find out the definite details. I feel strange this time because I don稚 physically feel different yet so it痴 hard to believe that I知 actually pregnant. With my son I felt like crap and I had horrible migraine headaches, but I was also 3 months pregnant before we found out so the crapping feelings are probably still to come.

I told the manager of my COD yesterday and she was very excited for me and she didn稚 have any problems putting me on hold. She said I can start right back up at no additional cost even though my weight loss weeks are all used up. All I have to do is give them a call a month or so after the baby is born and we値l take it from there. I知 planning on nursing so they allow more time on 塗old for that, but I知 not sure how much more. I do know this time, I feel much more confident in myself in regards to the dreaded baby weight I値l be putting on. I feel like I致e learned so much on LAWL that it will definitely help me make better decisions this time. With my last pregnancy nothing was out of reach and I ate whatever I wanted and drank over a GALLON of 1% milk a day, hence I gained 50 lbs. I know calcium is very important but that was way overboard, but it was the only thing I craved. Hopefully I don稚 have the same craving this time. My COD suggested if I知 worried about the weight I should just talk to my doctor about what I have been doing and take my food guides with and have him make recommendations. I have the maintenance guide also so that should come in handy. I realize this isn稚 a time in my life to worry about my weight but after seeing what happens when you don稚 worry, I just don稚 want a repeat or have to use the next 5 years to get the weight off. I致e worked hard to get to this point and I値l be pleased if I only gain the recommended 30 lbs.

I don稚 plan on leaving this board during this time. I still plan on cooking and eating this way (with modifications) so I need you ladies. I know I don稚 post daily, put I do check in several times a day and you all keep me in check. Thanks for being here!

Heather – yeah, that was last month! I did take several tests then and they were all negative. Now this month I did have my cycle last week, which was about a week earlier then the previous month and it was really light. I just though something didn’t seem right so I took two test and they both were positive! When I had my son, I had normal cycles for two months, but light. That’s why it took me three months to figure out I was pregnant, and I was on the pill then and not exactly planning on getting pregnant. So unless both of the tests I took are defective, I’m pregnant!
