I don't normally use this blog as a place to vent but today I just have to.

I went to the doctor today for my blood glucose test and my 29 week appointment.  Looking at my chart my doctor said, "you've gained 19 lbs so far.  I guess we're doing okay."

Okay?  Really?  I've gained 19lbs in 29 weeks (when the doctor's recommended weight gain is between 25 and 35 lbs) which makes me right on track to gain 30 lbs if I gain 1 lb a week for the last 11 weeks (which is average).

You better believe that I gave her absurdly tiny Asian body (which has never had kids) a really nasty look.

Then I came home and ate 3 Rice Krispy treats. 


  1. Is there no ratio nor percentage for the size of the person to start with? An absurdly tiny Asian is supposed to gain the same weight as a 6 foot 6 athlete? Hmm. Methinks you're doing great!

  2. You eat those Rice Krispy treats! My doctor used to get mad at me about the same thing. Actually it was the nurse who made the comments... Like you don't already feel huge and have heightened hormones making you more sensitive!

  3. I just ate a bag of Peanut Butter M&M's in honor of this post.

  4. Let's just remind ourselves how I gained 45 lbs (no that is not a typo) and I am shorter than you. If I was at the point you are with only that weight gain, I would throw myself more than a Rice Krispie party. So tell her to get lost.

  5. I had the blood glucose test today, too, although not as far along as you. I hate that buzz.

    With my first, I gained 55 lbs. My doctor wasn't overly concerned. Last time, I gained 15. He still wasn't concerned. The important thing is having a healthy baby. Good luck!

  6. She probably was concerned you hadn't gained enough….? Let's just think that!
