20 Pounds, 10 Weeks

Another good appointment this morning. I've officially gained 20 pounds now (yikes!). But there's only 10 weeks left to go (wow!). We have appointments every other week with the cardiologists and my two OB's. I was told to enjoy the break today because starting in four weeks we will start once a week check ups and stress tests...lovely. I'm also told I have to stop traveling in about 4-5 weeks because it's just too risky if I have to deliver this little center of attention somewhere new. Bummer. Oh well, we'll pack it in while we can and spend the rest of the summer in the pool trying to look incredibly buoyant.

Love you!

I so detest the last 2 months of pregnancy. That is when I seriously pack on the pounds and go from being "bouyant" to a bloated brick. I am sure you though, as with most things, will navigate it looking as beautiful as ever.

20 pounds are you kidding me??!! If only I could be pregnant in your body...I think i might be able to have another one! You look so good. All the doctors seem to be keeping a close eye on you, that is good. You are in good hands!
I love ya

It sounds like everything is going good for you. I'm sure that your amazing attitde has a lot to do with it. Are you sure you aren't related to my mother? the more pounds the better is what I always say! When else do you get a free ticket to eat up? Plus, I think it makes a happier baby! Good luck. We are thinking about you!

I so can relate to watching the numbers tick higher and higher! Wish they would ALL magically disappear after, but can only say it's all worth it in the end! I'm not kidding when I say we'd be happy to watch kids as these appointments get more and more frequent.

Just 10 weeks left. You can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am always so grateful to get to this point. I am so sick throughout the whole thing, it is these last 10 weeks that I can actually enjoy.

Hey Mindi...It's Em. I am so proud of you! I too BLOW UP like a massive balloon. 20 pounds is nothing! I sent an email to your oc tanner account regarding a family in our ward that has a son with a heart condition. Check your email when you have a sec. I didn't know if you only check that one when you are at work. His blog is www.miraclemason.blogspot.com
Hope you are well. Love ya! Em

Hey Mindi, it was great to see you today. I heard you say something about posting on your blog, so I did a little search and found you...I hope you don't care!! You look SO good, by the way. Thanks for the invite to the fun bridal party for your cute sis. It's always nice to be with grown-ups for a while! I love your blog and your inspiring words. I hope your children (and hubby) realize how lucky they are.
