an extra poke for my pregnancy

with every pregnancy, you get to have your blood drawn at least once (usually during the earlier visits). i don't like getting my blood drawn. i know. this comes from someone who's been inked and pierced a few times. a little poke shouldn't be too bad. but it pinches when they poke the needle in, and it's a hollow! blech.

anyway, i got to have my blood drawn again today when i came in for my visit. i guess they didn't get enough of my blood from the last time. but they only needed 1 tube instead of 4 (joy!).

other than that, things seem to be going well. i did loose 4 lbs. since my last weigh-in about 2 weeks ago. i was a bit worried (thinking the worst, of course, given what transpired the last time i lost weight at my weigh-in), but my midwife found the baby's heartbeat and i felt much better. what's weird is that i don't feel like i lost any weight. in fact, one particular pair of pants seem to be feeling a bit tighter. well, i'm sure once my appetite returns full force i won't be losing anymore pounds.

More Smoothies! Add a little protein powder to each one, and Ben & Jerry's is always a good idea!
