That's what I had for dinner, popcorn. I love popcorn. C was pissed. He doesn't see this as a "proper"dinner. He, by the way, had left over Pad Thai. I had a late lunch and this was what I wanted. I'm pretty sure that the OB would be fine on me cutting back on the eating since I got a miniature lecture last week about gaining 3lbs in 2 weeks. Of course there is the fact that I've only gained 6 total and I'm 22 weeks, so, I'd say that's pretty good!

Anyway, I obsess about this. I'm not getting as much exercise as I want to, because it seems that I'm constantly overdoing it when I try to get moving. Saturday, I cleaned my whole house. It's pretty big, and so there was a lot of vacuuming and bending over, etc. Sunday, the pain was back next to belly button and it's still not 100% better, but it's improving. I blame all of this on my damn back with is just horrible the minute I do any amount of bending over or standing still. Back to my weight obsession. I still hadn't lost all of the weight I'd put on with Wyatt, so even though I'm doing good this time, it's a mental struggle to know that there is definitely more to gain. AND C has started calling me things like "big girl"?!? He says he's only joking, but tonight I flipped out, I really don't need him to add to my insecurities. Men just don't get it. I truly believe the ONLY comment you should ever make about a pregnant woman's appearance is "You look great!" Now, don't get me wrong, he does tell me I'm beautiful, but I don't even want any jokes about weight!!! I think he got the message...

Both of my blood tests came back fine, but the OB still wants me to ask the Peri on Monday if he feels my Love.nox dose is sufficient and get his take on adding a baby aspirin. Baby Jackson is quite the kicker and I love it. I can't help but believe that Wyatt is watching over us.

I have some other things to talk about regarding my grandmother's death and the way my uncle has handled her estate, but I'm still trying to get all my thoughts together on this. The whole thing has been so sad for me.


  1. Popcorn is an excellent dinner option - one of my favourites! (Though I can't say I've had it for years; my popcorn popper lives at work at the moment for stressful times.) Tell C he can tell you what to have when he's pregnant. ;-) I'm certain you look gorgeous, and it's wonderful Jackson's giving you hello kicks.

  2. popcorn can be really filling!! it's funny that you had this for dinner last night, bc i did the same thing, and i haven't eaten popcorn in ages. men are dumb sometimes. enough said. i'm glad the pregnancy is going smoothly so far :o) stop cleaning the house though! put up your feet and rest rest rest! xoxo.

  3. Take it easy and relax! I'm sorry that C has been difficult lately, but I'm glad that you're under such good care! I'm praying for you!

  4. I often have popcorn for a meal! LOVE it! (Although I am having a very hard time finding Orville Redenbacher's Pour-Over kind and I am really disappointed!!!!)

    As for the "big girl" comment....not too long ago, I was getting ready for bed and John said, "Those are some big blue underwear!"

    Umm, yes, they are, and if you ever want to see ANY of my underwear again, you better shut it!

    Seriously. Also not too long ago, my mother in law and I were talking about how I got so swollen and ballooned with the pre-e that was coming (didn't come until after Matthew was born, go figure)...anyway, she said, "Yeah, you were pretty chunky."

    Really. You just don't ever tell a pregnant woman that...even if she's already had the baby. But for the love of GOD, you don't tell that to the woman who LOST THE BABY.

    What do people think sometimes? I guess they just don't.

    So sorry to hear about the loss of your grandmother. I miss mine terribly.

  5. I say if you want popcorn you have popcorn. :)

  6. I love popcorn for dinner!
