That's what the OB I saw today said. She used the word fluffy but you can't "sugar coat" what she meant. Pretty sure she was talking about my fupa area too...good lord! It was hurtful and inappropriate, considering I've lost 102 pounds and I'm doing my best to get and stay healthy. Not to mention I can't exactly help how much fat I carry in that general area! Ugh :/

Yeah! And she was not thin by any means! Maybe that's why she felt like it was okay to say?? Either way I just felt so embarrassed...and I'm laying there with the paper gown on like totally exposed anyway, so it was just all around uncomfortable.

Not really sure yet...she said my uterus felt like 11 weeks but I think I'm about 9.5, almost 10. Hopefully on Monday they'll get a better picture. The thing is I had a miscarriage and got pregnant immediately and I was recording when we DTD but not temping so it's hard to be sure when I conceived
