Update on baby me and weight... yikes!

Monday, January 21, 2013

Well I am 25 weeks and 3 days pregnant and I have gained 22 pounds so far .. :(
I started at 165
I am now 187

I have not been doing as well as I hoped.. but I have good news as well.
Because of my history of pre-term labor I was unable to be active, until now.
My cervix was checked today and it is still 3.3 cm long. so I go the okay to start walking a few days a week.
I really wanted to make it out of the "danger zone" and make sure I wasn't dilating.
Anyway, I get checked again at 29 weeks, hopefully I still wont be dilated, if so I will walk a bit more or maybe add a few other workouts.
Baby boy and I are both measuring right on track!
I am hoping to not gain more than 15-20 pounds for the rest of this pregnancy, because I feel that is realistic since I have the whole 3rd trimester to look forward too.

That would be around 40 pound weight gain
So I am hoping my end weight around 205 or less....
Hopefully walking and a few diet changes will make that possible!
REALLY need to get my butt in gear.
If I have learned anything from having my kids, each time has been harder to lose the weight!
With my first I lost it all easy and then some.
With my second I lost it all but it was hard work
With my third I struggled.. A LOT
This is my 4th and I REALLY want to be a healthy mom to my boys. The less I gain the easier it will be to get back to "healthy"

    I'm so glad to hear baby is safe and snug! Won't walking a bit feel wonderful!!

    I've found it is much easier to lose a pound gained eating brocolli than a pound gained eating ice cream. emoticon Feed that baby right!!

    YAY!!! So glad to see you and baby and cervix are doing well!! I'm just 28 weeks today so we're on the path together! I have just learned about and am trying to incorporate a way of eating that doesn't put carbs and fat together. I eat protein at every meal and snack, but the carbs(complex ) are eaten without more than 1 tsp fat. That means that the fatty meals are YUMMY!! eggs with mushrooms and onions cooked in a bit of coconut oil maybe even with cheese... :)
    coconut oil and stevia are big components since coc. oil is so incredibly healthy and revs the metabolism!
    Anyway, do your best to make healthy choices and I totally understand your feelings of losing baby weight... it gets very hard the older we get!!!

    Congrats on the baby and just do what you can because you will need to rest once the baby gets here.
