How Sweet


I gained 90 pounds when I was pregnant with Ben. I am NOT gaining 90 pounds while I am pregnant with this baby. Do you know how much work losing 90 pounds is? Do you know how little fun the process is? Do you know you can't eat chocolate at all?!

I have gained four pounds in 11 weeks and considering increased blood volume, my bigger gazungas and a little water retention this is about on track...but now people know I am pregnant and something comes over a person when they are around a gestating woman...they have an overwhelming desire to feed them. This must be biologically driven to aid in the successful nutrition of the future offspring. Everywhere I go, people feed me. I was at a guest speaker series the other day and there was one piece of delicious coconut cake left. "Give it to Jenn, she is pregnant" silent nods of agreement ensued and I had a second heaping portion of cake on my plate. Thank you and thank you...

I mentioned in a past blog recently my love for Mennonite rhubarb crumble cake. My always thoughtful mother in law read this blog and to my utter delight sent J home from work with my very own Rhubarb crumble cake from her own oven for me! She is not Mennonite, but you'd never guess that from her baking! How sweet, how thoughtful, how so very scrumptious! (J did not even get his token bite this time!)

I love food, I love being pregnant but I will NOT gain 90 pounds...

Congrats Jenn! That's really exciting!

Good luck resisting the food.
