What do you want to happen in your life this month? It's the 5th month...hard to believe that time has flown by soooooo very quickly. We just brought in the new year with all of our goals and aspirations...so now, what's really going on? What have you been most successful at?

My hubbie and I have been very successful at keeping our communication lines open and sticking to our once a week dates!

"May" I inquire of your successes...big or small...they're ALL successes! I can say that I am still in the 180s despite being 2 months pregnant...

Since I am already considered to be "overweight", I do not desire to pack on 20 pounds throughout this pregnancy! I am determined to be successful for the month of May! With CONSISTENT exercise and healthy food choices...April was a WRECK with eating and exercising...very surprised that I didn't pack on the 17 that I lost...!

Please share...pregnant woman rambling!

    Hey Soror,
    I've three children. With each pregnancy I gained a little differently. My suggestion is that how you were before you became pregnant is what you will go back to after the baby is here. It will take some time for you body to adjust but I find it resonable that you gain twenty pounds and be back at your original weight of 180's a few months later.
    The key is healthy eating. Eat every three to four hours and give you body what it craves. Pregnancy is not the time to count calories nor is it time to go overboard. Moderation and good choices should make this a success for you and your baby.
    Keep up the weekly dates. LIfe changes when you have kids but if you go in with such a great tradition you should find that it will work once the baby gets here. The funny thing will be that you won't want to leave the baby : )
    Enjoy this season in your life. Congratulations!

    I have three daughters. After my second pregnancy I was pretty overweight from eating for two and not exercising, it was my excuse. A month and a half after my second daughter was born I found that I was pregnant with my third. I chose to continue working out (elliptical, light weights) throughout my third pregnancy (all the way to delivery). My third daughter was born without me having put on any weight. She is the healthiest one of my bunch, she has less of a sweet tooth and all around smaller than my first two. I often wonder if my choices during pregnancy contributed to her health.

    Good Luck with your pregnancy, and congratulations!
