Anyone else already struggling a bit with body image. I am a little nervous of what will happen throughout the pregnancy with my body. Of course #1 concern is getting adequate nutrition for my growing baby...but I do have moments when I wonder if I will be able to limit my intake to that which is nutritious (and not pack on extra pounds eating sweets, junk etc).
I typically eat very healthy but do have a sweet tooth...which interestingly enough has been completely dormant since all the 1st trimester nausea started...which is great.
Current Weight: 147 lbs
Pregnancy Start Weight: 145 lbs
Pregnant: 11 weeks
Now, what has really been bugging me is that I got pregnant about 10 - 15 lbs heavier than what I had intended (3 years ago when I got married I had gotten down to 130 lbs).
The reason I didn't want to do any heavy calorie restriction before getting pregnant is I worried I would not get the adequate nutrition my body needed (to lose weight for my wedding I did a strict 1200 calorie diet).
Anyways I know I am ranting a bit....hoping someone can relate
Also, I feel self-concious now and I am sure even more so when people begin to find out I am pregnant...I feel like everyone is checking out my stomach (which has always been one of my least favorite body parts)....At this point, what used to be my little gut....is my more pronounced and harder to hide gut :(
