I have been wanting to say something for awhile, probably since I joined this group and realized almost every post is about gaining or maintaining weight. However, I do NOT want to offend anyone at all. Many people have legitimate health reasons for needing to gain some weight. On the other hand, I was just wondering, besides Jeanne, are there any others who are just skinny and are just healthy that way? Others who don't worry about weight? 

 

Because I am only 5 feet tall, my normal non pregnancy weight of 95-100 is completely fine for me. The only time I kinda start having trouble getting enough calories is when I am nursing a baby all the time. But generally I don't even know how much I weigh, I don't ever want to own a scale.

 

If this group is mostly about skinny mamas who need to gain weight or worry about losing more, I don't think this is the group for me.  I really hope that doesn't offend anyone!

For me, it depends on my health. I can be perfectly healthy and very skinny. But if I get sick, I start losing weight, and then I need to start gaining. So if I'm lucky health-wise, I don't need to worry.

 

I thought this thread was ok for all skinny mamas, not just for those who need to gain weight (someone correct me if I'm wrong.)

That's great news Bailey! Congrats :)

 

I am sure the group was intended for anyone. It just seemed like all that was talked about was gaining weight.  I guess there isn't much else to talk about really- except finding clothes and how other people negatively view us for being skinny. Any other ideas?  Maybe we should talk about positive things. One thing I like about being thinner is that its so much easier to find the position of a baby when pregnant, find their heart with a doppler, etc.

I thought of another thing, sometimes the only thing left on clearance racks is the super small clothes :)
