weight gain and health

I began pregnancy at 128 pounds. I currently weigh 147 pounds. That's a weight gain of 19 pounds in 21 weeks. I feel like I look pregnant when I see myself but many people can't even tell that I'm pregnant. A coworker told me today that I don't look like I've put on any weight at all-- which is a good thing because I don't really want to look like I've blown up. My 19 pounds is all in my belly and my chest. I'll probably just wake up one morning with a really noticeable pregnant belly and there will be no denying it then. Josh and I feel so surprised when people say they can't tell I'm pregnant. I guess because we both look at me alllll of the time!

As far as my health goes, I think the 19 pounds so far have been healthy. I have really tried to make good food choices. But really, instead of icecream... I'd much rather have an apple. It just tastes better to me right now. Except for Cold Stone: I could go for a birthday cake remix sundae anytime!

My blood pressure has also stayed pretty low. Right now, it is 110/70. Pre-pregnancy it was considerably higher than that. Maybe the healthy eating is helping because I know my level of stress has probably doubled since I got pregnant and began this school year!
