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.......

    I'm so excited for you, you are doing great, I can fully understand how you feel, it is hard when you have been on maintenance and now find yourself gaining, I'm so proud of you, wow, keeping a chart on how much you should be weighing and gaining, it also sounds strange to me as being much older and having my children grown, we didn't do that back when I had mine...I stand with you and share in your joy, there is no greater joy than carrying life and eventually giving birth, and then holding the precious baby in your arms, yes, God has given us an emoticon gift....God Bless you my friend... emoticon
