    Thanks, Brittany! I think I've got a complex this time because my OB is so obsessed with weight gain in pregnancy in general and warning me that the second kiddo is always bigger, etc. Gotta let go of it all and just enjoy. I showed DH the compare pics and he got all sweet and nostalgic and called me his "baby incubator", you've got to know my DH, he is something else. He just loves it when I am pregnant, I'm so thankful for that.

    Ugh, I hate an OB that's a weight nazi. It's so unhelpful. Every woman in the world is 110% aware of her weight.

    I gained 40lbs with DS1 and he was 11lbs 6.6oz.
    I gained 20-25lbs with DS2 and he was 8lbs 9oz.

    Don't let your OB get under your skin!

    I agree!!! LOL, I've heard subsequent babies are larger and usually your first is smallest, but my first was my biggest and my babies have gotten smaller since then. There also seems to be zero correlation between how much weight I gain and how big my babies are

    Aww, thanks Kelly !

    Actually, no secret...healthy, moderate eating and regular exercise, but good genetics (lol and a bit of adhd) do help (my mom and her family struggle with obesity and most of them have had bariatric surgery, but my dad's side is thin) . I'm seriously super boring, lol, I follow basically the same schedule and eat the same things every.single.day. . My dinners vary, but I follow the same weekly menu most weeks. Having a big family kind of keeps me accountable...if we don't keep to a routine life would be chaos !

    When my oldest few kiddos were little I was the primary motivator for keeping everyone active, lol, but now *they* keep *me* active! They are totes athletic enthusiasts so they're always asking if I want to go for a run, play volleyball (dh contracted a company to install a professional grade/size sand vball court in our backyard, lol, ya fanatics ), or whatev .

    Thanks Dorcas. I'm trying not to let him get to me. Thankfully I don't have to see him too much right now as I'm going to the high risk OB at the moment. My DD was little, 6lbs 2oz and I only gained about 17lbs with her. This baby is measuring a week ahead but I think it's because I ovulated early or something. DD always measured a week behind. These two pregnancies have been opposites so far, so I'm even more nervous about the weight gain issue. Even though I just need to let it go.

    Thank you for the encouragement. You too Kelly!!
