2 is company

I really wanted to be working on losing weight this year, but I guess that God had a different plan for me. I know that I don't have to give up exercise or a good diet. Actually, I need to keep those up. I am following the book "Body for Life" by Bill Phillips, but I don't think that I've been as faithful as I should be. I think that I have lost some fat, and it's been replaced with muscle and that's why it isn't really showing on the scale. My pants are getting loose, and I had to punch another hole in my belt. Well, my pants probably won't be getting any bigger on me. In a few more months I'll have to dig out the box that has only been put away for about 10 months. This was totally unplanned. I was really down about it yesterday, but I'm much more excited about it today. It is a good thing and a real blessing. I just wasn't prepared for it, yet. (We were going to wait until next summer.) It's really our own fault. We weren't as careful as we should have been. (I was just beginning to chart my cycles again.) Eli will be about 18 months old when this one comes along. I guess that's a good age difference. Plus, my sister is due April 6. It will be fun to have this to share with each other.

If you didn't already guess, I'm pregnant- due end of May-early June. (June 4)

I know unplanned news can be surprising, but 18 months sounds like a good time difference. My brother and I are even closer than that. My mom always said that -- in retrospect -- she liked having all of her kids close together. It allowed her to do diapers over one period instead of starting and stopping and starting and stopping. Either way, I pray that your pregnancy goes well.

My boys are 15 months apart...although it was busy, I feel blessed by it. They are very close and it's neat to see them going hunting and fishing together.

My four children were born in five years. No twins. I miss being pregnant. I miss babies. Sigh.

When I was pregnant with my third child, we moved. The new OBGYN said "I prefer that my obese patients not gain any weight during pregnancy"...I said "Gee, how's that working out for you?"...then I left and got something to eat from Sonic...;) I've struggled with my weight for many years, I'm finally beating it into submission (it has taken four years of off and on work). My best advice, enjoy your pregnancy, worry about the weight later.
