I just posted my week 20 and 21 pregnancy photos on Flickr, and golly gee it's painful. I feel like I'm gaining weight in my arms and face more than anywhere else. Everyone says it's fine to gain weight, and most of it will come off after the baby is born, but as most people who know me know, it's a life long struggle for me. I'm going to keep trying to keep it under control, but not obsess about it too much, since I'd rather gain a little too much than not enough... And I'm still in the normal weight gain for pregnant women, I just had hoped to keep it under the normal amount. Maybe my yoga with free weights class (first one on Thursday) will help me with my arms. I also got some free-weights to use here, and a yoga ball to try and figure out. Yikes.
And literally, as I type, Justin has reported that he is almost ready for a (and this is a sincere quote) "mammoth oreo explosion with ice cream; I mean frozen yogurt." Genetics are so unfair. I have adopted angel food cake as my favorite dessert, and apples and/or yogurt for my snacks in the day. Justin works really hard at working out every day, but still. Unfair. :)
Here's me tonight. Tomorrow I'll be 22 weeks.
