7 Month Check Up

I'm doing my glucose test this morning, so a lot of waiting around! I also had my 7 month check up - everything is good, the heartbeat is strong (it should be, this kid is raging around in there like a champ). 

I only gained 1 pound this month, officially, though probably a couple more since the last time I was weighed it was 4 PM and I got weighed at 8 AM this time. I'm pleased with that - trying to gain only baby weight from here on out, not Jeanette weight!

It's still a little struggle to accept my body - it's strange to not fit into my normal sports bras and for nothing with a waistband to fit and shirts not cover my belly! I did a little shopping to fill in some gaps, but I hate spending money on temporary clothes.

Going to a rehearsal dinner tonight at a super awesome restaurant! I'm excited to hang out with lots of friends tonight and to eat some great food. Big treat for me! I got a pretty maternity dress at Target for $15 for the event- I love deals :)

I'll leave you with a picture Chris snapped of me and Koda that I love:


  1. That is a great picture !

    That deal you got on your maternity dress sounds good - have a lovely dinner tonight and a great weekend.

    All the best Jan

  2. Love the photo of you and Koda :) Don't worry about spending money on maternity clothes. You can either use them again if you decide to have another baby or resell/gift them to other moms-to-be in the future. It's important to be comfy!

    Have fun at the rehearsal dinner tonight <3

  3. Hi, Jeanette! I've been reading you for a little while, lost some weight myself then also found out I'm pregnant (only just) for the second time around. I'm not sure if you're in a heavily populated locale, but you might want to check Facebook or Yahoo Groups for any parent groups in your area. As well as connecting with parents in my neighborhood and finding events, for me the online community has been a great place to find/get rid of baby supplies, and people regularly sell or give away their second hand maternity clothes. I'm hoping to score some winter stuff--unfortunately I only have summer stuff from last time and I'm not going to really start growing that big until the winter. Might be worth looking into! Have fun at the dinner tonight!

  4. and Koda look so cute. Can't worry about stuff not's not supposed to fit!

  5. YAY! So happy everything is going smoothly. :)
