Appointment Update: 23 weeks

This time I went solo as Charm City Daddy had a downtown meeting, so no amusing story to share. Next time I get tested for gestational diabetes and another sonogram--so much more interesting.

Charm City Baby is doing well and moving a LOT---so much so that she was moving constantly while the nurse was trying to find her heartbeat. We did find it faintly, but CCB definitely had her own agenda. I like that. For now.
I'm starting to get a little weight conscientious. I worry most about my legs for some reason. At my appointment my nurse calculated that I have gained a total of 13 lbs. Not bad. BUT with every pound I realize that I am at my heaviest. Nice. I got off to a slow start but I'm now averaging a pound a week. If I keep this up--17 pounds to go. Breathe. It's all for a good cause.

The weight gain has made me start to think more about my post-pregnancy fitness. In fact, I recently won private tennis lessons at a charity event silent auction. Yay! I can't WAIT to use them. That'll take care of those legs! I'll be the Venus to my sister's already Serena Williams physique! Now we just need to get her playing tennis too!
