Baby Update

Last Thursday was my first doctor appointment with my new doctor. It went so much better than I ever could have imagined. I went from a doctor who spent three to five minutes with me, to a doctor who spent at least 20 minutes with me. He went over my medical history and explained everything I should be expecting to occur during the next 6 months. We are so blessed to have such an amazing doctor!

My goal when I found out I was pregnant was to not gain more than 25 pounds but I officially went over that and still have 6 weeks to go. Oh well. The doctor wasn't at all concerned about my weight and said that I should be able to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight pretty quickly. I hope he's right!

Baby Dallas is growing well, her heartbeat is excellent and she is measuring a week ahead of schedule, which she has been since our first ultrasound. I visit the doctor again next week and then start going once a week from then on. It's so crazy to think we're already at this point.

I haven't shared any pregnancy pics lately because frankly I feel like a fat cow BUT I remember how much I used to like to see other girls' prego pics...so here it is. My gigantic tummy at 33 weeks.


  1. You look so cute! I can show you "fat cow" ... I gained almost 1/2 my weight over when I was pregnant and it showed from head to toe. You look precious and the only part of you that looks pregnant is your belly. Whether or not you lose your baby weight, count it as a trophy for being a mommy, the best thing ever.
