Yeah, I guess my dh knows me well enough to know that I am really comfortable with myself, my body, etc, no matter what - and a few weeks ago, I said, "God, my butt is really plump these days, huh?" He replies, "yeah" no hesitation...so I start laughing. Then I said, "Wouldn't that be nice if it stayed like this but everything else went back to normal?" He, again, no hesitation, says, "NO!" "I like your butt just fine...a little bigger is ok, but THIS is TOO big!" I really started cracking up, but at the same time, I'm like, "wow I didn't expect you to say that." So, I just ended it by saying that I like it as big as it is now and he said he didn't. Oh well.
But, now a few weeks later, its getting even bigger... and I am not even 33 weeks yet. Oh boy...so I don't know how much longer I'll stay so confident in my big butt - but now I definitely notice the different kind of stares I get from him when I walk by and catch him looking at my butt. Its good we can laugh about it, but at the same time, I think, "Jeez, I am not like 400 lbs, we can stop blowing it out of proportion now..."
That is good you have a plan for losing it. I don't. But I do like your idea of walking in the evenings...that sounds so nice. I am probably not worried because all I did was nurse my ds and was back to my normal weight in less than two weeks. But, I didn't gain a lot, he was little and early...so, we'll see this time! I am also not someone who can keep weight on without making it a daily effort, so again, I don't worry too much...but I could definitely have a rude awakening this time, so I might steal your plan!!!
