Looks like I failed my plan for a "fit" pregnancy by far. I weigh more right now than I did at delivery with my last two babies (can't say the same for my first--I gained 75lbs with her because I was very young and believe I really needed to eat for two so I ate twice as much. I lost it all well before my 2nd preg).
I think I've gained exactly 30lbs already....I'm 27 weeks but measuring 4 weeks ahead. My ankles look like trunks and my thighs and buttocks are just big sacks of cellulite. Part of me loves it (because it makes me appreciate how beautiful my pre-preg body was that I took for granted and put down all.the.time) and part of me is disappointed in myself because I still have at least 10 weeks to go, if not more! My midwife was NOT happy that I gained 12lbs last month! After I saw her, I started exercising every day but now my lower back is hurting a lot and I can't move as much as I need to (I'm going to see my chiro this week to see if it helps). I go through phases were I eat super super healthy and then I'll have a day where I CRAVE carbs and junk and the vicious cycle begins again and I have to work on my mindset to get myself back on track. I know what I need to do but I feel kinda like it's too late.
I'm not looking forward to this weight hanging on after he's here. With my last, I was back to my pre-preg weight by the time she was 4 months old. But I only gained 31lbs total with her. I'm just worried about how much harder it will be this time to lose the weight. I'll probably gain 45lbs total and I'm 5 years older this time as well....I just wish I appreciated my pre-preg body when I had it!
