  1. Love this! Showing my inner numbers geek 🙂 I can’t wait to see your knitting.

    You are doing so well to have only gained 3 kgs! I’m at 8 (24 wks), augh, significantly more than needed, mostly due to constant snacking of 1st trimester, if I were to write a post like this I’d have to add a line — Number of crackers consumed between weeks 5 and 16: >20,000 😛

    • Thanks! I’m not displeased with my weight gain. It’s been suggested to me more than once that I could possibly get through my pregnancy without gaining any weight at all(!!) However, I feel pregnancy is stressful enough without adding calorie counting or being overly prescriptive with my eating. I’m getting plenty of fresh fruit and veg, protein and calories and doing lots of walking and I’m happy with that.
