This morning I got on my scale again. Many of you probably wonder why I torture myself with daily weigh-ins. Weighing myself daily shows to me whether or not what I ate the day before was healthy enough for me. If I stayed the same in weight I'm happy. If I gained weight it either means I gained muscle or I'm bloating from too much sodium intake.
With my high blood pressure I have to restrict myself to about 1500 mg of sodium daily. If you have ever looked at the nutritional information on the prepackaged and convenience food you'll see that we Americans eat way too much sodium every day.
So with this said I got on the scale and found that today my pre-PUPO weight is 210 lbs even. Yay! I lost 0.8 lbs over night. I must be doing something right as I had to give up exercising when I started to bleed. I'll start back up to exercising, probably pregnancy type, when I'm allowed. Hopefully today I'll find out that on Saturday or Sunday I can back to a routine.
I'm nervous and excited.
I'm wearing a good luck fertility charm. Not that I believe in all that but it can't hurt. When shopping this weekend for family at a jewelry store I asked the clerk if they had any of a particular creature. Not sure if the clerk was not knowing what this very common creature looked like, I'd say it here but one of the gift receivers does read my blog, but she came back with a turtle which looks nothing like what I wanted. But I said that is okay I'll take the turtle. I also bought myself some silver seahorse earrings. I'm wearing those today too.
I'll post more in the next couple of days and hopefully I'll have an embryo photo to share with all of you.
I have one of these for my Celtic Sea Salt and love it!
