up 2 pounds! now at 184

So after a week on a cruise ship I have had my first weight gain since surgery (ma4 4th/11)... what a strange feeling to gain weight and be 'ok' with it. That's one of the question marks I have with this pregnancy... how much weight will I gain? How much show I gain? I have a non banded friend that only gained 10lbs in her pregnancy and then had a 9.2lbs baby, She was 'maybe' 20lbs overweight when she conceived... I wonder what the future hold on the scale for me...

I'm a newbie and I need help!

I've tried a couple times to add a ticker to my blog but it isn't working. I know how to make the ticker <a href="">

but I don't know how to add it to my page... the gadget button won't accept my url... any ideas?

Vitamins and Nutrition

So the one thing that I am worried about with this pregnancy is making sure I get enough nutrients into my body to have a healthy baby. I'm taking my prenatal vitamins but I feel like maybe I should be taking extra vitamins too. I think I'll check with my doc... Does anyone else have any experience with vitamins and pregnancy with Lap Band?

I was gone but now I'm back!

Sorry about the radio silence last week!! I was on a Disney Cruise with Hubby and Toddler. It was GREAT! Just the relaxing escape from the cold that we needed. Before we left everyone had me freaked out that I was going to have major sea sickness due to being pregnant, I was totally fine! What a great way to have a family vacation and still get a break. I highly recommend it!!
