A Correction

This week, I swore I wouldn't put off blogging.  I had all these posts in my head that I was going to write.  It didn't happen.  I've been busy and sick and tired.  When I say tired, I mean exhausted, a kind of exhaustion I don't think I've ever felt before.  I'm feeling a little better today, so hopefully it's almost over.

There is something I feel like I should clear up about my pregnancy post.  I'd like to point out that I have not intentionally been trying to lose weight or avoid gaining weight.  I have been exercising, taking vitamins and eating better because I want to feel better, not because I'm worried about getting fat while pregnant. It is important to gain weight when you're expecting.  I also don't suggest starting an exercise routine while pregnant without discussing it with your doctor.  I discussed it with mine and we decided that adding a little more exercise to my routine may  help me avoid such severe postpartum problems.  I am not doing any kind of strenuous activities, mostly walking.  So, please, if you are expecting or ever plan to have a baby, do not look back at my post and think, "she managed to lose weight from the wrong places and gain weight in the right places, I can too". 
I'm not 100% sure why I haven't gained any weight.  It could be a change in my activities, but it could also be something else.  As a result, I now have to take extra precautions with the baby.  I now have to have a weekly sonogram to measure the baby and non-stress tests twice a week to make sure the baby is active and healthy.  The baby is healthy and active, just a little on the small side.  The extra tests are just a precaution and not a result of anything that I have done or any serious health issues. 

Ok, I feel better now that I've said that.  I hope everyone has a great weekend!
