Seriously, I could have polished this whole thing off in one sitting—no lie. I’m definitely going through the golden eating phase of pregnancy. So much so, that I’ve been eating ice cream by the pint, cookies by the bag and cakes by the pan. Only problem . . . 

I was just told by my doctor that I’ve gained too much weight. By too much, I don’t mean too much for my current 29 week state, but too much for the WHOLE pregnancy. I’m 7lbs. over my maximum suggested 20lbs. for the pregnancy.

What-the-whaaa . . .I’ve been placed on a prego diet. Wah!
