Quick 15 week update

Just got back from my OB appointment, and all is well. I had my first Doppler (147 bpm) and first belly measurement (11 cm). 

I also got a somewhat stern admonition from the doctor that I've gained about twice as much as I should have at this point, so no more gelato for me. Luckily, I'm generally feeling better, so dialing back the carbs and dialing up the exercise should be, if not easy, easier than it would have been a few weeks ago.

And now, off to LA! Will the business trips ever end????

Don't worry about the weight. It's the one time in life you are "allowed" to eat as much as you please ;-)

Just listen to your body and take the doc's advice with a grain of salt (sorry, couldn't resist the pun).

I live in LA so I think you're lucky to get to come here, even if it's for business.

:) Maybe I should work for the tourists bureau. hee hee!

I am so glad to hear that everything is right on track! I don't know about totally giving up gelato though:)

Don't freak out too much about the weight gain. Enjoy your pregnancy. I'm sure the baby loves the Gelato. ICLW

Sounds like a good appointment, other than the scolding.

Congrats on "all is well."

Just read your "Mamma" post and loved it. Sometimes the impromptu kindness of strangers can be so touching! :)

Best wishes to you and DH as you continue through your pregnancy!

YEAH for 15 weeks, how exciting! Glad you are starting to feel a little better. I'm sure I will be scolded by my OB as well. I have been chowing down on all things carbs! Never give up the gelato! :)
