Being a chubby gal anyway, this is like my major obsession, lol, so please humor me? What have you ladies gained/lost so far?
According to the doc's records, i haven't gained anything yet. I gained about 6 lbs before my first appointment at 12 weeks (i had just lost about 15 before that, so it probably came back because i felt crappy and stopped exercizing).
At 14 weeks i lost 4 lbs, but gained it back by week 17. At 19 weeks, it was the same.
So, does that mean i've gained 6 lbs altogether? Or maybe i don't count what i've lost, and say i gained 10 lbs? Or, even more confusing yet, maybe i go with 0, because it happened before i "should" have gained weight, and it may have had nothing to do with pregnancy?
I don't understand how this even works; i still weigh less than i did at conception, but i've gained three inches around the belly, and my baby weighed 8 oz at 17 weeks (so says the ultrasound). I look like i'm about ready to give birth, hahaha!
I feel pretty healthy, i mean, i feel like a big chubby blob, but i haven't been sick in weeks. When they weigh me, the nurses look me up and down and just make a face like "hmm, that's odd." Do you think i'll get a lecture soon, or am i probably doing good for someone my size (i'm 5'6" and weigh 176 right now, at almost 19 weeks)?
