just a short break with a before and after...well durring.

I'm feeling somewhat better.
The swelling in my throat is gone, but now I'm all drainy and I am coughing my head off.
I've been alternating hot tea and tums...since the tea gives me heartburn.

Today I'm packing the hospital bags.
(don't worry I'm taking pictures! for a post)
I decided to take a quick break...
because I'm preggie...and tired

somehow I ended up going through old pictures 
I came across one from when I was around 10 weeks pregnant.

now I know why people say I look like I've lost a ton of weight!

I've always struggled with body image.
I'm a "big"girl, I'm short, but I'm pudgy.
so throughout this pregnancy I've had a hard time seeing a bump and not just fat.

at 10 weeks pregnant I weighed in at 200
when I was in the office Monday I weighed in at 191.1

that's just 10lbs...but then you have to consider how much you gain when pregnant
enter webmd:
  • Baby: 8 pounds
  • Placenta: 2-3 pounds
  • Amniotic fluid: 2-3 pounds
  • Breast tissue: 2-3 pounds
  • Blood supply: 4 pounds
  • Stored fat for delivery and breastfeeding: 5-9 pounds
  • Larger uterus: 2-5 pounds
  • Total: 25-35 pounds
now I know dude doesn't weigh 8lbs...but I'm positive I gained more than 2-3lbs of breast tissue!
so it evens out. and I'm guessing I'm on the lower end of the we'll just say 25lbs gained thanks to the dude.

that puts me at a weight loss guess of around 35lbs.
hard to believe...until you see the side by side comparison.
10ish weeks                     30ish weeks

ok all, I'm off to finish packing!

{also HOLY COW I'm "full term" tomorrow!!!}
