Peek at Emma

We went to the doctor’s office again today where we got a peek at Emma, hands behind her head, ankles crossed, and reclining on the placenta. Glad to know that she’s made herself at home in there!

At this point in my pregnancy last year, I had gained probably a little over ten pounds. (Actually, probably more than that. I know for sure that I gained eight pounds in four weeks at the beginning, so at that kind of rate, it had to be pretty high.) The grand total for this pregnancy so far? ONE POUND! Could I actually be one of those women who lose all of their pregnancy weight just a few weeks post-partum? In the US, there’s no way. But in Okinawa, where pizza buffet and tortilla factories are foreign concepts? Just maybe!
