I’ll keep it short and start with pregnancy.

Another topic I will be discussing frequently is weight loss.  I was at my ideal weight when I got married.  1 year later I had gained about 12 pounds 😦  I had wanted to lost those 12 pounds before I got pregnant but that never happened.  I gained about 35 pounds during the pregnancy, which is not terrible.  The weeks after I had  the baby I lost 15 pounds – just from baby, etc. So that left me about 32 pounds away from where I wanted to be – back at my ideal weight.  Eek.  I knew I needed help, so I turned to Jenny Craig.  Best thing I ever did.  The food is awesome!!  It’s super easy to do.  I am now 4 months pp and I’m 10 pounds away from my goal weight – yay!!  I’m not always perfect and I have my slip-ups but for the most part I follow the plan and I get out and walk with alexis about 4 times a week – she likes being out in the fresh air and I get some exercise!

Now that I have that taken care of – it seems that I have some lingering bleeding going on for which my Dr is scratching his head.  After over 2 months of tinkering with birth control pills and going back and forth, I am finally going to have surgery.  Ick.  July 9th.  Next week.  A “mild general anesthetic” is what my Dr says.  Then they will go in and take a look and see if they can find a cause and solution for the bleeding.  I am not looking forward to it, but I guess that’s the way it has to be.  Sucks.  I am definitely not having another baby for a while!!

I just celebrated my 2 year wedding anniversary.  We went to the Melting Pot – not exactly the same as our 1 yr anniversary which we marked with a 2 week trip to Alaska, but we can’t really go away for 2 weeks with a 3 month old (at the time) baby.  It was nice.  The last few months have been rough, but I suppose that’s normal since our lives have been turned upside down with the birth of the baby.  Becoming parents has been wonderful and stressful.  I think we are finally settling into a routine and we’re getting along better.

Not much else to say about me.  I’m going to be staying at home for the foreseeable future.  Hopefully I will go to graduate school next year and get a master’s degree and teach high school one day.
