Pregnancy and weight gain
Tuesday, July 22, 2014
With this being my first pregnancy, I will admit that having a baby bump is hard to get used to.
I have been married 6 yrs, am 30 yrs old, and am used to the mentality that I should be exercising (not just walking or non impact but doing things like the elliptical and aerobics!)......maintaining my weight (not always gaining)....and in general being stringent with my weight gain
Pregnancy is a whole new adventure. Everything is contrary. I am so hungry so often. I keep a weight chart of what I 'should' be gaining and I am in the correct category (especially for having twins) so it's not like I am gaining too much. But when you're used to maintaining ........continuous weight gain is hard to handle. Ah well. I know it's all for a good purpose but it is a mind game sometimes. Everything is contrary to how I've trained my body for 30 yrs.
So excited to be having my babies though! 17 weeks almost down.......
