30 Pounds And Growing!!

12 Weeks

14 weeks

For a girl who has spent her entire life battling the bulge, it was a dream when my doctor told me that I had to eat 5000 calories a day! (I have to gain 75-100lbs!!) Cheeseburgers, Chinese Food, Mexican Food, all of the food I never allowed myself to eat is now on my diet. I never thought I would say it, but I am now getting tired of having to eat this much of this type of food. At my last doctor's vistit, I had gained 30 pounds and my body is groaning at the extra weight. Even though I am following orders, I must say I was a titch horrified when the nurse had to move the bottom block on the scale over one to the right!


  1. But you are so cute, pregnant!! Hang in there, sweetie!

  5. Hi! I'm Maria's daughter. Your sister Amy just sent this blog through to my email for my mom to see. I'm glad to see everything is going well. I told my OB teacher about you and she thinks this is just the coolest thing ever. So do I!

  6. Happy Easter Steven and Elle. We love the website. Elle you look just precious and Steven don't worry about not being cool because your kids will ALWAYS think your cool. Good Luck and Congrats. All our love Brandon and Jennifer Morano

  7. Somehow, I didn't get this website until yesterday and I'm thrilled! We'll keep praying and spread the page to Carefree and Cave Creek where many will pray and be willing to help with some hands on stuff.

    Love, Cousin Cathy
