I'm 17 weeks today and I'm just feeling so blah! I have heard about women who Love being pregnant, but I just don't understand it. Do I glow? Nope. My face just breaks out terribly! I've been having horrible morning sickness that only seems to stop when I eat carbs. And I can't seem to manage my weight gain! I was reading the pregnancy journal that I kept while I was pregnant with Aiden. In all caps, I had written, Melissa, If you ever think about getting pregnant again, Read This! But enough with the complaining. I know that there are so many women who would love to be in my shoes and whenever I look at Aiden, I know that in the end it is completely worth this terrible 9 months! So when I'm having these Blah moments, I just need to think about that.
My mom really hurt my feelings today. Like I said, I am having a really difficult time with weight issues again. I know I'm gaining too much too quickly, and I just feel out of control. When I cook, I cook healthy, but my grandma cooks for us 3 nights a week and it's 100% southern food. Tonight, my mom was at my grandmother's house and I was wearing a sweater over my short sleeve shirt because it had gotten cold out. Well, she was staring at me and I asked her what was wrong. She said, "You just look really big in that sweater." It's a sweater! It's like a light coat. How many people wear form fitting sweaters? That almost made me cry (did I mention that I'm also extremely emotional?). I just don't know what she was thinking. Only 5 more months...
17 weeks (Matt's not very good at taking pictures! LOL)

This one is for my mom! I'm pooching my stomach out in this one!
