I dont tihnk I can post mine... Im huge... everyone here has such cute tiny perky bellies. I work out like a mo fo (1-3 hours a day of vigorous activity like power walking with stroller/18lb kid in front carrier, hike with said kiddo in backpack, or stroller push in a hilly neighborhood, ride the horses, etc) eat whole food vegetarian (most vegan and mostly fruits, veggies, salad, protein smoothies), and have been strickly watching my calorie intake so I dont gain too much but I have anyways. Im up 18 lbs at 25.5 weeks and I told my self under no circumstances would I gain more than 25 this pregnancy because last time I was on bed rest and gained 50 pounds, and I still have 14 weeks to go . I still dont think I look pregnant, just fat and toting around a 9 month old I think everyone is still assuming I never lost my baby belly the first time.
I havent taken a single belly shot this time. I did last time and I have the same exact due date, just a year apart and had severe polyhydramnios last time that caused me to measure like I was having twins so it would have been interesting to compare...
activealli, don't feel bad, some of us just gain more...I'm up 25lbs already...and I was overweight to start :( I am eating way less than *they* say I should, walking when I can and taking care of my family and house as usual and I have a 28lb 1 year old I haul around. My body just thinks it has to gain no matter what. I'm sure you look adorable :)
I haven't been as diligent as i was before with taking my weekly shots. Then I feel bad 'cause what happens when/if that baby gets bigger and wants to know why he/she doesn't have as many belly photos as their brother? I try to remember that the belly photos (and others) are for my memories and such for when I get older. I dont' have to share them with anyone if I don't want to, but I have them.
activealli - don't feel bad. I truly believe each woman (when eating well and taking care of herself - and even sometimes when not!) gains what she needs. I've never gained less than 45, and I'm already up 19lbs at 23 weeks. More than I wanted....but it is what it is (I could be eating a bit better....).
