HI! It's me, Tiffani.. remember me? :) For those not following my pregnancy blog you probably thought I just fell off the face of the planet! :) I'm here!
I'm 11 weeks pregnant today and "officially" (as in, according to my ultrasound) due on November 9. That happens to be the day after Cadence's birthday in case you were keeping track. I'm feeling good!! A lot of sleepiness but even that is going away with time and I'm starting to be able to get out of bed before 9 am again. YAY!
I EAT though... man do I eat! I still get hung up on foods like bread and chicken just like before which was a surprise to me. I was under the impression that once your band is empty you can eat like pre-band. NOT TRUE! This was a pleasant surprise for me though really. I'm maintaining my new weight nicely. I eat far less than pre-band. I am trying to behave since I am diabetic and need to be good. My numbers just tell my doctor if I am eating well or eating like crap so I really need to control myself, lol.
My year bandiversary is coming up in 2 days. Crazy. I doubt I'll do a whole post on it since I'm up in weight from a year ago... sort of depressing but then again when you think of the outcome.. not so much! :) I'll just start over after my bub is here safe and sound. No big deal! Totally worth it.
I'm going to Chicago for B.O.O.B.S if I'm allowed by my doc. I'm going to ask her next week just to double check. I live 2 hours from Chicago but I know I got some paperwork that told me not to "travel" 2 months before delivery... so I'll just check. I don't think a 2 hour jaunt qualifies as "travel" personally. Ramona made my day and asked me to be roomies. I was feeling a bit self-conscious about going, honestly. I feel like I'm going to be the fat girl!!! BUT COME ON!!! Time to cut myself some slack, no? For some reason I feel like I don't fit in with you banded girls but I AM still banded. I just have to get over those stupid insecurities, I guess.
Anywho! I just wanted to drop a note to say hello and catch everyone up. :) I'm still reading everyones blogs and will probably start following more from the BOOBS trip to get to know some more ladies before Sept.
