Which is Easier?


Do you think it’s easier to gain weight or to loose weight? Before I was pregnant, I would have said that it’s harder to loose weight. I would work out and hardly budge on my weight, I would go on vacation and easily gain 5 pounds. Now, however, I’m trying to gain weight and it’s going a lot slower than I thought it would.

We knew it would happen sooner or later. I’m trying to gain weight with the pregnancy, and Husband is trying to loose weight; we knew we would meet somewhere. Well, it’s happened. Husband and I now weigh the same. A few days ago I weighed 168.0 and David weighed 168.8, today, I weigh 168.8 and David is at 168.0. Like I said before, this is the only time I will allow that I weigh more than Husband. We’re the same height and because he’s male, he just needs to weigh more than I do. A lot of Husband’s weight now is muscle, and I’m quite proud of him; especially with the eating. I’m sure it’s not easy for him to watch what he eats, when I’m shoving my face with food all day long.

See how we look at the same weight:

*22weeks 3 days

All in all, I think we both look great! Husband is making great progress, and I just LOVE to see pregnant bellies (always have), and I haven’t changed my mind with my own. I use to wear baggy shirts to hide my little tummy, but now, I enjoy wearing fitted shirts to show off what I got. By George, it took me 3 pregnancies to get this belly, I’m going to flaunt it!

*pardon the dust behind us in the picture. As I’ve mentioned, I’m making a bed quilt for our bed (about king size); I like to lay it out as I work to see my progress and make sure I’m doing it right. The orange and green one is just a mini quilt I did to practice pinwheels. I hope to finish our bed quilt by the end of the year, but might actually finish it end of September or October.

I was made for this.


I sometimes wonder if there are going to be any girls born into our ward, it seems the majority of the babies born are boys. Kind of interesting. Also, most, if not all the pregnant women in my ward lately have gotten pretty sick during the first trimester and wonder how I’ve done. Well, I was made to be pregnant or something, because the only time I felt not well, was on the cruise; which I’m sure was a combination of morning sickness and sea sickness (still no throwing up though). The attitudes have gotten me (poor Husband) and I still worry needlessly. Most days I don’t even feel pregnant and it’s kind of un-real to me still.

Can a dog get sympathy symptoms? Daisy has been acting a little different lately, and wonder if she knows what’s going on and that things are about to change. She has to go potty more frequently, she’s more needy to be around Husband and me. She doesn’t even like to eat breakfast alone, so I go in and eat with her. Husband has been doing well, he’s been pushing to loose weight lately, and doing a wonderful job. We’re taking bets on when we’ll be the same weight. I’ll be sad to weigh more than Husband, but I’m sure it’s bound to happen during pregnancy (only during pregnancy).
