UGH. I am TOTALLY stressing over weight already. I know I shouldn't be, but I have gained just under 50lbs each pregnancy, and while I've lost it each time, I went into this pregnancy UNABLE to lose any weight (no matter how stinking hard I tried...well, aside from simply starving myself) because of my thyroid issues (didn't ever have the problem until about 11 months PP this last time though), and I worry about how that will affect my gain this time and whether or not I can lose it afterwards.
AND, to make matters worse, I've never before started gaining until 14-16 weeks, but this time I gained like 7lbs almost IMMEDIATELY after getting pregnant. With every other pregnancy, all 11 of them (m/c's included), I have always LOST 5-8lbs before I hit that 14/16 week point. But not this time. I'm already up like 10-11lbs when normally I'd have not even have regained what I lost yet!! So I feel defeated already!!!!
I eat pretty healthy (though I could always be healthier, but honestly, I am a perfectionist and know I can't hold myself to too high of a standard otherwise I'll give up really fast...BTDT), and I work out as often as I can (though I'm just getting by already since I'm already dealing with SPD and SI joint issues, and this seems to be a point in where I'm contracting more...anybody else?). But I just feel like if I slip up ONE time, I'm behind and there's no way of catching up. I HATE the feeling.
I would normally be okay with gaining the same amount again, because I gained it during a not quite as healthy pregnancy, but also two VERY healthy pregnancies. So I figured it was just what my body needs for pregnancy. I am also not nursing this time, sadly (last time I was tandem nursing, nursing one before that), but if I gained the same during my DD1's (obviously NOT nursing) pregnancy, I can't really think that it had much effect either way...? But with the thyroid issue in play now, as well as the sudden gain out of nowhere, I feel like this is now unfamiliar territory and I've already failed.
