|Me and Carl on our 10-year anniversary: November 11, 2010|
|14 weeks along: April 26, 2011|
I am now 15 weeks along. Well, 15 weeks and a few days! I have gained 10 pounds, and friends are starting to notice the baby bump. Weight-wise, I still weigh about one pound less than I did a year or so ago when I started moving toward paleo (I didn't go 100% at first ... it was somewhat of a gradual transition). As many of my friends know, I've been pretty freaked about the weight gain I've experienced. Not that I didn't anticipate weight gain, I just thought most of it would come later (because so many other people report very little weight gain in the first three or four months). Overall, though, I'm happy with how things are going. Kili, my trainer, took my measurements the other day and I was relieved to discover that my arms and legs are not growing. My only extra inches are right where they should be, including two extra inches around my waist -- which explains why I am now wearing maternity pants.
Up above is a photo Carl took last week, and below is a photo from two months ago. I'm not sure why I felt compelled to show bare skin in the March 1st photo, other than the fact that I was convinced my pregnancy was already obvious (in hindsight, it probably wasn't).
