I've Gained 8 Pounds

This week has been really busy!

We have been trying to get the nursery "reveal ready" for tomorrow's gender reveal party.




We can't wait for our family to see the paint job my husband did in the nursery and of course, to reveal the gender to our family!

Now that I'm 20 weeks along, I am starting to notice the scale going up a little quicker than before. I'm up a total of 8 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight, which isn't bad in my mind. I feel really bloated and I dream of the days when my pants use to fit. However, I am so happy to be this far along in my pregnancy (and really just can't wait to hold my baby in my arms and kiss the baby all up)!

It's a little unnerving to see the scale going up and all of my clothes getting tighter. Yet, it still doesn't keep me from eating my two breakfasts and second dinner each night. I just can't get enough food these days, I really just need to accept that fact and just start making better food choices. That bagel and a half for breakfast was probably not needed this morning. Just saying.

After the reveal party tomorrow, I'm going to make a plan for the week ahead to have better food choices in the house (that means I'm getting rid of the cookie jar, friends) and I'll also make a plan to fit some exercise in there, too!
