I only got my BFP this morning and already I'm scrutinising my stomach - crazy woman I am lol! I don't care though, I'm a really petite girl, but I do have a bit of a tummy already. If I put on weight, then so be it. Im sure it will all be worth it xxx
Hello there.. well i can relate, i battled an eating disorder for 12 years, and to this day still battle the thoughts and triggers. I just had my first beautiful baby girl on Nov. 8 2011 and she was a very healthy 8 lbs 5 oz!!! I'm sorry to tell you this, but i gained about 60 lbs in pregnancy. I am 5'7 and got pregnant once but miscarried because m body was so malnourished. From there I gained about 25 lbs and my pre pregnancy weight was about 148-150. My daughter is almost 5 months and i have only dropped about 30 lbs, but I have actually just started doing p90x, so hopefully it gets off quicker.
But I would suggest you STOP weighing yourself, my dr knew about my past and my eating disorder, and knew that I would gain more than the 30 lbs in pregnancy.. and as a matter of fact, i know over a dozen women who gained 50-80 lbs in pregnancy who never had an ED. Regardless of how much or how little you eat, your body will gain what it needs to produce a healthy baby, just EAT HELTHY.. dont eat junk food because then you are putting on bad fat that will be a pain to get off later.. Get someone supportive in your life, my husband is very encouraging and helps me to achieve my goal. I look at my beautiful baby girls face and would gain 100 lbs if i had to! It is ABSOLUTELY worth it, and you can always lose the weight!! Remember, your going from a girls body to a womans body, and i'll take my curves over my 12 year old boy body anyday!
