I am much more proud of the basement progress than my own. This photo shows the first coat of paint, which is definitely ::bright:: Too bright? Hope not, cuz we're stuck with it. A wanted "Bold" and that it is. As a side note, this photo was taken without a flash, using the "vibration reduction" feature of my camera lens. It works surprising well! Still a little blurry, but the w/VR and w/out VR pics are markedly different.
As for my progress:
This is from 2 days ago. I checked the scale today: I have gained 3 pounds in 3 days. Seriously. Many pregnant women say "chuck the scale" while pregnant. I am the exact opposite: I freaking chart my weight gain. I have a little line on a graph, which is consistently higher than the recommended weight gain. ::le sigh:: I try, I really do. I can now tell when I'm going to have a big weight spike, because I have a big jump in hunger and a couple days later *voila* the scale is scary again. I know you gain weight while pregnant, I'm fine with that, I just wish I could stay between the little lines on the graph that define "normal" weight gain. Being above normal in most things is great, this just doesn't happen to be one of them.
