Big news

Monday, February 25, 2013

So.... i was 1.2lbs away from my halfway point. I had almost reached 50lbs lost. Annnnnd I find out I'm pregnant. Wow, what a punch in the gut! Oh well, after much meditation and discussion with my husband... I've decided that I'm not going to over indulge in this pregnancy. I don't want to gain more than is necessary for a healthy baby. When I'm healed from my c-section this fall, I will start again. I'm staying on sparkpeople because I do plan on keeping track of calories. As I understand, pregnant women should consume around 2500 ish calories a day... that's still under review (after i post this i will do some research online.. until i can get to the doctor, that will suffice.) I want to keep a healthy mindset and continue light exercise throughout this pregnancy... I don't want to divulge into a mountain of candy and doughnuts and forget where I was from November to January.
We are super excited... And I'm super nervous to find out how many we're having... lol. Most people want to find out the gender, I genuinely don't care about that.. I just want to know how many are in there! lol

    emoticon Congrats to you and your hubby! Just keep doing what you're doing and follow SATCHMO99's advice. No need to gain "fat" weight just baby weight. Have said a prayer that you have a happy healthy pregnancy. emoticon

    Congratulations, what lovely news. No, 2500 calories a day isn't necessary, but neither should you have a very low calorie diet. Good food is the key, with plenty of protein.

    If you are in the exercise habit, then keep doing as much as you have been doing. Baby is cocooned and unless you have a risk of miscarriage there's no scientific reason to cut back on the exercise.

    If you are excessively nauseous, you may even lose that last 1.2 lbs without trying.
