I don't know what has gotten into me... but the last few days my body cannot get enough food. I am one-hundred-percent sure that Alivia is having a growth spurt. All I felt like I did yesterday was eat, eat, and eat some more.

Even though I know that I need to eat for my growing baby it is pretty hard to let myself go. I feel guilty for having my 4th snack of the day (okay, 6th snack of the day). It is such a struggle because for years I have worked so hard to be fit, and stay a "certain size". Don't get me wrong I love my belly. I love knowing Alivia is in there growing big and strong, and that she will be making her grand entrance around 60 days from now! Its the growing thighs that weigh heavy on my mind.

For the most part the things that are going into my month are healthy. Yesterday, I had a banana, apple, and orange (along with a snickerdoodle cookie, a bag of chips, grilled cheese, and the list goes on...) Until April I am going to have to face the facts: I will be eating a lot. 9 more weeks!

Eat a lot today.


  1. No worries Megan...have yourself a second breakfast. It's ok. No one is noticing your thighs. Ha-Ha!

  2. Megan,

    Don't worry about eating more than you think you should. If it helps any we just had our 3 week postpartum appointment and my wife is only a couple of pounds away from pre-baby weight.

    Hope you have a great day.

  3. Your heart is beautiful and that is what matters most! Don't worry about those thighs...they will be a "certain size" before you know it! :)
