  1. 25 pounds is great! I felt that I was doing very well with my weight, but when I stopped working, it started sticking! I still am shocked each time I am on the scale, because I do not feel 30-35 lbs heavier, but the scale doesn't lie. I can't wait to stop gaining!

  2. With Nehemiah I worked 2 jobs, 50-60 hours a week...and I GAINED a lot. I felt healthier and his pregnancy was the easiest, but I think I went from 125-160 pounds. Of course I still haven't gotten back to 125....maybe someday...but I'm not the type that obsesses about weight (I like to eat too much ;) ) But I gained the most with him b/c I sat at a machine in a factory and ate, and ate and ate! And the girl next to me was from Germany, and she went to visit family and bought me a bunch of German chocolate b/c she knew Nehemiah didn't like cheap chocolate! hahaha

  3. You both look great and pretty soon the pounds will melt off as you take care of your baby and Maria you chase after 3. =)
