Fun facts from Japan

Acceptable weight gain for a Ma to be in Japan?

5-10 lbs.

I am sure some genetics play a huge part in this, culturally speaking, but during my pregnancy with Noah his weight and the weight of all the amniotic fluid he called home would have tipped a Japanese scale. I have only gained 2 lbs so far this pregnancy thanks to the stomach flu (x3) and morning sickness that just won`t end. But still, I am curious to see how my Japanese OB is going to react to these numbers during my next appointment on Wednesday.

An appointment in which I will find out if I am hosting a little lad or lassie in there.

  1. Yay! Can't wait to read what you are having!

    My weight gain would definitely be frowned upon in Japan! :)
