I've been so good about not eating junk and not doing any out of control snacking.... but omg, this past week I can't help myself!! All I can think about is food! I woke up this morning at 5am, it's 7am now and I have already eaten a banana, a bowl of leftover chili, half a roll of Ritz crackers, a chocolate rice crispy treat, AND 2 small powdered donuts That's like 1 whole hour of munching my brains out!!! I'm full now (thank god!) but in the back of my mind I hear my Dr yelling at me for being stupid and eating a bunch of crap. What's wrong with me?? Why am I eating so much this week?? I hope this is a normal time for babies to hit growth spurts or something because otherwise, I feel like a pig.


BTW... DH bought me a package of sour gummy worms that were calling my name all last night while I was tying to sleep. I haven't opened them yet, but I know once I do, those little worms don't stand a snowball's chance in hell!!

I went through this yesterday. I think I ate most of the day. I was so hungry all day long. I ate some good stuff and some crap. Just make up for the crap by eating healthy later today. And stop worrying about gaining weight. I'm still pissed at your dr for saying that to you about your weight. Pregnant women gain weight. I've already gained some weight and while I'm not extremely happy with my weight gain I know it is what is best for my baby.

Oh and those sour gummies are so good. When I was pregnant with Jackson I craved them like crazy and ate them all the time. guess that's why I gained 48 lbs with him..lol.

I'm going to try my best to be good the rest of the day but I'm not making any promises. I feel way better now and don't have any urges to snack. I really shouldn't yet since I ate "first breakfast" and "brunch" all at the same time this morning

My DH and my best friend are going to my appointment with me on Monday, so I will be SHOCKED if my Dr makes a big deal about my weight in front of them. I just know he will be thinking rude things when he see's my weight jump from last month. I'm still doing good on weight gain, or at least I think I am. At my last appointment (a month ago) I was down 1 lb from my pre-pregnancy weight. But, now I am up 6 lbs from then which was gained all in 1 month's time AND that was with me eating really healthy. I just feel like he is going to act, or at least *think* that's a LOT of weight to gain in 1 month. Even though technically it's 7 lbs total for the whole 19 weeks I've been pregnant.

I'm not worried about gaining weight, I'm worried what my Dr might say about it. I already know I can lose it all after baby is born. I've done it before. I just don't like the way my Dr made me feel when he looked at my weight in his chart. It was like I disgusted him. Arrggg!! I'm freakin pregnant!! Why can't people be kind about the whole weight thing??! It's already a touchy topic for most women and now I am worrying about what 1 ignorant male thinks about it?!? I seriously need to chill out, keep eating healthy, and if I gain weight each month and my Dr doesn't like it then I need to put him in his place!

Amy, all of that food you ate sounds sooooo good! I'm not pregnant and think I could do that some days...lol! Please don't worry about what your doctor will think, just ignore that ignorant jerk! 6 lbs in a month is not bad, especially since you had lost a pound. My doctor wouldn't say anything negative about that, I gained 5 lbs in 2 weeks when I was pregnant with DD1 and she just said, it's okay because you didn't gain last time, but make sure that you aren't gaining because of unhealthy habits...lol! Eating unhealthy on occasion is okay, since you are making up for it later!

Thank you, lol. I swear I've been good up until the past few days. I'm not going to make unhealthy eating a habit of mine. But yes, this morning was delish... although I feel guilty about it, my tummy is very happy. lol

Oh Amy you are fine! Just put that jerk of a doctor out of your head and munch away! I know with each of my pregnancies I had periods where all I wanted was good-for-me foods, and periods where the only thing that would satisfy were the bad-for-me stuff. It will all balance out in the end! Just make sure you're taking your vitamins and eating enough protein, and you're good to go!
Don't you dare change a thing...I still think you should have gained more by now. You're almost halfway into it and only 7 lbs gain? If I were still pregnant I would be SO jealous right now! Haha. I gained fast in the beginning and then slowed down later. I think I did about 32 lbs altogether. Your doctor should be seriously proud of you, or even be encouraging you to eat more! He's such a turd. Just ignore his inept self!

Thank you. I gained about 35 lbs the first time and was probably already up about 15-17 lbs by now. My weight did jump up a little near the end of my first pregnancy but I was having a pizza phase near the end. DH would take me to a pizza buffet like 2-3 times a week... all you can eat pizza, pasta, and all kinds of deserts (my favorite was the powdered sugar covered brownies, they were so moist). Oh, plus Halloween candy. We only got maybe 3-4 trick or treaters last year so I had a huge bowl of candy slapping me in the face.

I'm thinking about 30 lbs this time will be what I end up at since I'm not going to go Halloween candy crazy this year and I've been avoiding pizza like the plague.

I don't know why but my dr never says anything about my weight. Even when I was pregnant with Jackson and gained a ton he never said anything. i know I would be alot more self conscience if my dr made me feel bad about my weight. Amy I'm already up what you have gained and I'm only 12 weeks..lol. My goal for this pregnancy is to stay below 35 lbs. I haven't done that in either of my other pregnancies so if I do that I will feel good.

you look great by the way!! I love seeing your little baby bump.

Melissa, I think some docs make it a point not to say anything because they don't want women to go on diets during pregnancy. My doc only mentioned my weight one time, and that was to ask how I felt about it. I said I felt like it was more than I'd like, and she said to just make healthy choices.

You are probably right Joy. I am definitely trying to do better with this pregnancy but I try not to worry too much about the scale.
