Birdhappy I have a hard time losing weight, also. After I had my first when I was 18 I was convinced my body would bounce right back because I was so young- but the truth is, I was 20 pounds above my pre-preg weight when I got pregnant with #2 (I could have used 10 pounds of it, so it wasnt all just fat). And when I got pregnant with THIS baby, I was once again 10 pounds heavier than with #2.
This pregnancy has been very different for me as far as weight. I have only gained between 11-15 pounds so far. My doc wants 1 pound a week from here out, meaning no more than 10 more pounds- I think its excessive because I started out at about 170, which is 20 pounds heavier than I should be at my height.
My body seriously holds on to weight while I breastfeed. I just CANNOT seem to lose the weight, then when I quit I will immediately drop 10 pounds. Its frustrating. Its also a lot of the reason Im hoping to not gain too much excess weight these last 2 months.
Is it just me or is the last trimester dragging on...endlessly? Haha.
Still hoping to hear from Luna soon :) Hope things are going well!
