One thing I don't enjoy about pregnancy is breaking out into tears about everything. -_-; In fact, I've noticed that when I do cry lately, my face breaks out into a flush. :(

I went to pick up more WIC checks today, and when the nutritionist called my name, she had me weighed. She mentioned something about "high-risk", and I was like "High-risk??". She said that because I've only gained 6 pounds above my normal (pre-pregnancy) weight (I lost 8 pounds in the first tri-mester due to constant nausea, then gained it back, but now gaining on top of that). I said that my OB/GYN hasn't said anything, and that my baby is growing "on schedule" and appears to be healthy.

I mentioned this to Hsiaokwai, and he launches into a lecture about my eating habits again. I feel he equates not drinking water and eating salads with a deformed baby. It's not like I smoke or drink, or consume more than minimal/moderate amounts of soda/coffee (of which I rarely drink at all), or eat a lot of junkfood (I don't eat much of this either).

I've never been a big eater, but I certainly don't starve myself, and I've never gained weight easily either. I wish people would get off my back.

Oh yeah, if anyone wants a Christmas card, e-mail me (kami@kami.nu).

I don't think my mom gained much weight when she was pregnant with me or my brother, and we turned out fine.

Hmm, I'd suggest taking vitamins, if you're not already. I'm sure someone makes special prenatal ones, but a regular multi is probably just as good. :)

My mom ate Taco Bell a lot while pregnant with me, and I turned out fine. :(

Haha, yeah, I got "special pre-natal" vitamins, but I take Flintstones vitamins because i'll actually take them. heh.

As long as you're not, like... doing coke or binge drinking, chances are the baby will turn out fine. XD

drinking a bit is fine during pregancy, especially towards the end it doesn't really have an effect.

i dunno. if you are eating to gain weight during pregancy you'd be doing it for the wrong reasons. if you don't want to eat more than you are, that's your body telling you something. but if everyone is super worried, just make it a habit to eat something extra everyday, like a piece of cheesecake every night or something XD
it's good to have an excuse to be sinful with food. hah.
