I was reading a Pregnancy mag the other day that had an issue in it about how some women felt the pressure to stay thin during pregnancy. I thought that it was maybe just a select few - not really as big an issue as was written of it. BUT, after what people have been commenting to me, I can see why so many women feel this way!! Despite being pregnant, my sister, a few female friends and work colleges feel the need to comment on EVERYTHING I eat! I am naturally not a thin person. My resting weight is 12stone - even with 1hrs cardio and weights a day and a 2000 or less cal diet- thats where my body wants to be and I am fine with that -a decent size 12/14. The past few months I have been SO tired that I have not been doing my usual exercise, and of course I have slobbed a bit and not been so restrictive on what I was eating - and of course now there are only certain things I can stomach (mainly just home cooked meals but mostly beef or potato orientated). SO I have put on weight - I though just 2 stone, but according to the MW its 3 (putting me at 15st!- her scales LIE!) So I am currently a size 16 - possibly an 18 if you count the bumpage! I am not starting to feel that I am too fat, to the point where I have considered restarting my old exersize and dietary plan. Everyone keeps going on about how I will find it very hard to shift the weight once I have the baby. It's really starting to upset me . OH rationalised it in that maybe I won't get so many stretch marks as the bump will have more skin to grow into than if I was a skinny bean. I plan to breast feed for as long as possibly after and So this will help with the weight loss to a degree. But I am not really scared that I am going to be a fat mum . But I would rather look comfortable to cuddle! I just don't like the comments from other people. Has anyone else been having the same issues? or similar?
