I've spent these last few days cleaning house emoticon

Like deep, deep cleaning. My son lost 2/3 of his toys but I've seen his floor ever since and it's just way more peaceful now. Besides, he was happy to "help the other babies." We'll be donating the toys that weren't broken.

The last two days were pretty much perfect. emoticon Within my calorie count. All my steps. A legit workout. Today was even better than yesterday because none of those calories were chocolate emoticon

The two before, not so much but more so because I was well below my caloric needs on both days. Seems like a good problem to have, but not when pregnant and not when what you ate had no nutritional value whatsoever. emoticon

But those nachos were pretty good. emoticon

As I've mentioned before I gained 60 pounds during my last pregnancy, and that was my gain 2 months after the birth. Lord only knows what that actual gain was. My son was worth it on one hand, but deserved better on the other.

A year of hard work and I was that lowest weight I had ever been. 95lbs.

After that I dropped another 7 before realizing I had a problem and turning it around to land a 103. I was content there for the most part, but intermittently working towards a more fit body.

After that Seroquel came into my life and I gained 35 lbs in 2.5 months! emoticon

I was shocked! But luckily managed to stop gaining, then proceeding to drop 10lbs. And here I am. Luckily starting at a healthy weight and body fat percentage and absolutely determined to have an infinitely more healthy pregnancy this time around.

Bet ya didn't think you'd be reading my life story this time around huh? emoticon

Anyway, tomorrow is Father's Day, I'll be announcing my pregnancy to my husband's side of the family at a dinner we're having. Mine will be getting a phone call emoticon

So if you made it this far and you're a dad(furbabies count too!) Happy Father's Day and I hope it's a great one! If you're not a dad? I hope you have a great one too!
