WHOA!

OK, so at the begining of my pregnancy I lost about 10 lbs and really had trouble putting on weight... BUT towards the end of my 2nd trimester I started putting on the pounds! I didn't feel like I was eating more than normal or anything like that, but towards the end I put on about 10 lbs every two weeks. Before my delivery, I had put on about 60+ pounds! Aparently, a HUGE amount of that was from all the swelling... I had some SERIOUS swelling! After I had the baby- by the time I had left the hospital, I had already lost 50 pounds! In the pic below you can see the swelling I had just a few days before being admitted into the hospital, and my legs the day I got home from the hospital :) The swelling was actually worse than that, but that's the only pic I have....

OK, so not the most exciting post, just thought I'd share.... it actually cracks me up to see how much swelling I had!
