It kind of annoys me when women (in general, nowhere in particular) are so eager to volunteer how little they've gained when they give updates as to how their pregnancy is going. I know a lot of women don't gain much weight, and actually fat women are maybe chief among that category, especially early on, so it's not like I "disapprove" of lack of weight gain. That would be pretty crappy and judgmental of me, LOL. But it's more the fact that people always seem so eager to post about it. "I've only gained 3 pounds! I've only gained 1! I've lost weight!"
Bleah, I know I'm "just jealous" because I've already gained 7+ pounds at 14.5 weeks. I had zero morning sickness or loss of appetite, and the past 2 years have been a time of weight gain anyway as I "rebounded" from a 100-lb weight loss and have been trying to deal with a job I hate (chief coping mechanism: food), so I feel pretty crappy about myself as it is. Plus most of my early pregnancy has taken place during the holidays, so I doubt I'm alone in putting on a few. I don't really need the anxiety that comes along with feeling like I'm ruining my health and killing my baby by gaining a few more pounds than I was supposed to. It's not like I'm doing it on purpose. No, my diet isn't perfect, but I'm doing my best.
Sorry for the crankiness. I think I'm just worried about my next appointment, coming up on Tuesday. Any number of bad things could happen... they could kick me out of the midwife practice for my blood pressure, they could drop some bad news on me from the tests I did a couple of weeks back if they "forgot" to tell me before now, I could register an even bigger gain... it's stressing me out.
