I'm back

I'm back among the living. Very sore from all the puking, but I'll take sore from puking over the actual act of puking any day.

Our 25 week appt was today and everything looked good. He just checked protein levels, blood pressure and Eli's heartbeat. Next month is my last 4 week check-up and I'll do the glucose screening. Doesn't seem possible to be at that point but I guess it is. I'll probably kick myself for revealing this, but...I've gained 16 lbs (which would have certainly been more had I not spent the previous 48 hours not eating) I was terrible about writing this stuff down (or remembering) when I was pregnant with Carlee. And, since this is the only place I'm "writing" anything down with Eli, I'll tell it.

Speaking of...if you've seen my sister lately (Kerry) you've probably noticed that she's lost an impressive amount of weight and looks really great. So, a couple of Sundays ago at church, we were walking down the hallway together and as we approached a lady at the end of the hall she says "This is the first time I've been able to tell you two apart". So, before I thought about it, I replied with "um, yeah, becuase I'm fat and pregnant and she's not". She, of course replied with a nervous laugh and "no, that's not what I meant" (or something along those lines). I'm pretty sure I made her feel bad and shouldn't have said what I said. But, I'm also pretty sure she was commenting on the fact that I'm a little tubby right now and Kerry looks good. So, I think there were two of us who didn't think before we talked. A perk of having a twin who looks a lot like you...weight comparison. Love it.

Um, no... it was totally because you part you hair on different sides.

I just laughed out loud.
I should have talked to you before jumping to conclusions!
