I know that this can be a very sensitive subject for many women. But I stepped on the scale this morning for my weekly weigh in and I hit 140lbs. I kinda got super depressed
I talked to my sister and she kinda just laughed it off, saying that I am lucky to be 22 weeks pregnant and weigh that. But, I can't help it. I have always been very slender, I started it 128lbs, and this is a challenge for me to feel comfortable with it. I know that this is normal and it means Declan is getting bigger and stronger, which I LOVE. I don't know.
I just need some reassurance from you amazing ladies
You are right on track with your weight gain!! I had been very upset about my weight gain. I gained more then what is considered normal for the baby's gestational age. I think it was due to poor choices in what I was eating. I am definitely eating better and making better food choices now; and I feel much better now too
You have nothing to worry about!! You are right where you should be
I have been feeling the same way. I had gained 9 lbs at my 20 week checkup. I know that is perfectly normal and when I said something to my doctor about it, she said that that was really good. I only gained 11 lbs with my last baby and I wasn't overweight to begin with so I thought I wouldn't gain much more than that this time around. I guess I will though!
Your weight gain of 12lbs sounds perfectly reasonable and as long as you are eating healthy, I wouldn't worry about it too much. It will drop off after the baby is born. (At least that is what I keep telling myself!)
