Pregnancy Poundage

So, I am making a pretty big effort not to get pretty big this pregnancy. And for me, I have to make a BIG effort because those pounds pile on easily! I have had a good amount of morning sickness, so for the most part, it has been difficult to exercise. However, I have been trying to eat healthy. So, the result of this, as of last week, was that I had gained a total of 3.5 lbs by the 11th week, which is waaaay less than my last pregnancy by that time. Of course, during my last pregnancy, I took a trip to the UK and Paris that packed on some pounds.
Those 3.5 lbs wasted away this weekend, though, when I got a horrible stomach virus and my body completely rid itself of everything. I even had to get a shot to stop the nausea and vomiting. It worked, so I am back on liquids and a bland diet. I suppose if I ever want to loose weight quickly and miserably, a stomach virus is the way to go. I just wouldn't prefer to do it while I was pregnant! Okay...perhaps I would prefer to never experience that again!
