I'm starting to exercise a lot more - I have gained a LOT of weight and the doctor suggested I slow it down. He asked me what I ate for snacks and I told him the truth - apples, bananas, oranges, grapes, etc. I'm really not eating much differently than I did pre pregnancy, but I am definitely putting on the pounds. He suggested I start to exercise more so that's what I'm doing. I have a prenatal workout DVD that I really like, and I found out that the hospital where I'm delivering offers free prenatal water aerobics classes so as soon as I find a maternity swimsuit that I like I'll start doing that.
Anyway, here's a bump update. I have had strangers begin to acknowledge my pregnancy so it's making me feel more pregnant and less fat. That and the fact that this baby moves almost constantly! The other night I took a bath and just stared at my stomach the whole time because I could actually see it move up and down as she kicked. It was pretty amazing. I am so in love and so addicted to feeling those kicks!
Oh we also put the crib together last weekend. I LOVE it! It doesn't have a mattress yet, so I'm going to hold off on posting a picture of it until it looks a little more put together. Hopefully we will get a mattress this weekend when we register...yes we're going to register! It's getting more and more real every day!
