9 weeks and 3 days

I feel like my belly is growing at the speed of light! HOLY MOLY! Just two days ago it was nice and normal looking... even this morning- as soon as I ate lunch... "awe, I see your belly, it's so cute!" Although I know a lot of it is bloating and the scale still said I have only gained 4 lbs (as of this morning) I am super nervous that I am gaining weight too fast but I just can't stop eating. The average weight to be gained in the first trimester for a person of my size is 5 lbs! I have the rest of this week plus two more weeks and I can only gain 1 more lb?!?!?! Not looking like it is going to happen. I guess I shouldn't stress over it because it means my bean is healthy and has plenty of room to grow in there. I am nervous about losing it when it is all over. I will be a running machine! Does anyone have any advice on what you gained your first trimester? Were you able to lose it all when the baby came? I know Lauren lost it all in like 3 weeks! (I hate you for that by the way)- I just hope I can be like her. Why I am stressing about this? It is normal to be big. I'm pregnant! Ugh. I have just NEVER been through this weight stuff before. We walked a lot this weekend and went on a short walk today. Michael is helping. I am just eating A LOT. But it also doesn't help that I did no have any morning sickness- I am NOT complaining. lol. It is awesome, I just think a lot of people maybe only gain 5 bc they barfed up so much. (gross, I know).

On a lighter note- Secret Life is FINALLY new tonight. Yes, I am a loser and at 25 years old I am excited about Secret Life of an American Teenager. I'm just praying "Riley, Liam, Harper, Beckham..." whatever you are in there does NOT turn out like these kids! Yikes! Well folks- Happy Monday!

Let go laughing!
