Where are you guys at with weight gain now that we're nearing the end of the second trimester/in the beginning of the third?
I'm having a really hard time with it, my goal was 18-23 pounds total... and I haven't been able to weigh myself in 4 weeks because I've been traveling and before I left I was at 147 at 5'7 (starting at 135) and now I'm 154. That's 7 pounds in a month!!! I was on an airplane for 7 pounds yesterday and I have a feeling a lot of it is water retention from flying because I always swell up after a flight... but that's 19 pounds at 26 weeks and 3 days. I'm REALLY upset about this and I know its because I was staying at my inlaws and I didn't have my routine and we didn't even have a car to get around in ... I went to 8 yoga classes and we went to the health food store TWICE in the 3 weeks we were there (our florida trip/honeymoon was much more on track nutritionally because we rented a car and were able to get healthy food and walk on the beach 3 miles every day). I'm just so pissed and resentful of my husband for making me stay with his family and I know that this is why I got off track.
Is it possible to just PAUSE the weight gain until like 36 weeks?? If I just exercise a lot every day and eat no sugar and low carb and IM losing weight but the baby is still gaining so essentially the weight gain is paused?? is that possible??
I'm really freaking upset. I have major body image issues I know, and pregnancy is NOT good for this at all, I can't stand looking in the mirror.
