Count me in! I was 20lbs underweight when I got pregnant with my son, and when I brought him home from the hospital I weighed less than I do now.
I've struggled the last 2 or 3 years with serious weight gain, about 20 lbs - mostly from progesterone - in our TTC efforts. Being older, it's harder to keep weight off, much less lose it, so seeing the scale go up even 1 or 2 lbs makes me nervous - even though, like you said, you know it's for a good reason.
It doesn't matter for me how easily I lost the weight the last time. I'm much older now and I know I'll struggle with weight loss once this baby is born. Gaining the least amount of weight possible is important to me and even my OB said she wants my weight gain at a minimum, because of my age. 25 lbs max by the end of term.
So I guess I should put the pretzels away, huh?
