Eating for Two

Today's pregnancy calendar article o' the day snidely points out that just because I'm eating for two doesn't mean I need to eat twice as much. Forget you, pregnancy calendar! You don't know what it's like to be hungry ALL DAY! I've gained another three lbs since the doctor's appointment which brings my weight gain to 10 lbs :( The article goes on to mention the "good" sources of protein; milk, eggs, chicken. What about BigMacs!? Just 206 days of weight gain to go.

In other pregnancy woes, my tailbone has become a ticking time bomb of agony. I'll be waddling along (yes, I waddle already), minding my own business, and all of a sudden, BOOM! My stately waddle becomes a humiliating hobble. Monday I made the mistake of attempting to jog out of the rain and immediately my tailbone notified me that if I didn't quit it she was gonna drop straight off my body and I could see how far I'd get without her.

Alright, enough griping for now.

I read that the upper limit for healthy, "normal" pregnancy weight gain is 32.5 lbs at 40 weeks; the low end is 24 lbs. at 40 weeks. You don't want to get too far ahead of yourself, and for a Big Mac ... but then again, I'm partial to the Whopper when I commit to ingesting a week's worth of fat and calories in one sitting. :o)

Right... the Whopper is totally the way to go. Go hard or go home, that's what I live by.
