Pregnancy cravings means putting on the pounds...

At my last doctors appointment I stepped on to the scale thinking I would have gained maybe another pound or two! From the beginning of my pregnancy to the halfway mark I gained a total of 7 pounds. Then in the last 4 weeks I gained 6 more pounds!! The doctor said I need the extra weight since I am so small.
Want in on my weight gain secret... I have been craving Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls!
I was eating a box a day, yes that is right: 1 box everyday!
So, this month I decided to cut back to maybe 1-2 boxes a week!!

I love those Little Debbie snacks but don't even buy them or I would eat them all in a day too...and I can't use pregnancy as an excuse!!

I'm sure that weight gain is normal and is good for your baby since you are so tiny. My doctors always wanted me to gain more too...it's the taking it off afterwards that's not so fun!!

7 lbs??!! That's ALL?? I've packed on 15 lbs already and my Dr says I should put on about a 1 lb a week from this point on. I've never been one to obsess about my weight, but seeing those big numbers on the scale is a little unnerving :-) But its all for a great reason. I say...eat on!
