I am not one of those ladies proud to be plus size especially while pregnant! I tried so hard the last 3 years (why we even waited this long!) to get the 50 pound gain off my body and get to at the very least my pre-preggo weight of 180 which was up 20 pounds because of a miscarriage at 8wks a month before the conception of my DD. I'm 5'5" and medium-framed.
I'm feeling lots of back pain and have a bit of trouble standing for long periods, sleeping in the same position, etc. I still cannot believe how much I weigh on the scale right now! My weight before conceiving was about 215-220 and now it's 235! I just feel terrible carrying around this weight, there are so many risks and I am scared for labor.
Any mama in the DDC here who can commiserate? I'm being *very* careful with what I eat. I am doing mostly primal/paleo with the exception of some dairy, the occasional GF (and non-GF) treats and honey as a sweetener in drinks. I am kicking up the workouts but am being careful not to exert myself. Like last night I only did a 10 minute yoga routine (so darn good for my dull 24-hour backache!) and walked for about 20 minutes.
Today I want to walk and maybe do an easy kettlebell workout. I've even heard you can safely lose weight while pregnant. This is my last pregnancy I think so I really want to do it right! ;)
