Any one else here a little on the bigger side? I'm 5'2-5'3 and I weight roughly 170. (give or take) We need to hold each other accountable so we can be healthy during our pregnancies! I would love to have a chat with some of you.


And you skinny minny mamas can give advice too!!

I'm about the same. 5'1" and 170. I'm tracking me weight and I am starting 2 workout videos. I'm trying to only gain 15 lbs, and my Dr and I will be talking about it a lot. My old Dr didn't care about my crazy weight gain in my first pregnancy. So I'm hoping I can be better this round

at my first prenatal visit I thought about asking for the gestational diabetes food plan they give out. because I feel like that would be a good thing for me to follow. i am trying to keep my weight gain to an absolute min!

Starting this pregnancy at my heaviest ever 5'6 and 187 lbs. 8 of which I gained AFTER giving birth and full time breastfeeding - go figure...

My goal weight is 162 - puts me at a size 8 which is good for my frame, but haven't even been close for 4 years So I am 25 lbs overweight.

Last pregnancy I started at 172 (was doing 45 minutes Tae Bo daily at the time and up until the 6th month) and gained 20 lbs by 40 weeks. Came home from the hospital 182 then started creeping up instead of back down.

A couple months back I was done with it and decided to do low carb - which always worked for me in the past - but this time around I only lost 3 lbs in 1 month and I was having 20 grams of carbs a day!! (think 1 large salad w/some crumbled cheese, no sugar, no flour, no fruit no starchy veg)

Checked my thyroid - is fine. Still very frustrating not being able to take the weight off no matter what I try.
I walk at least 45 minutes 4 times a week pushing a (heavy) stroller and we live in a "hilly" neighborhood.

My sugar has been crazy too - very high fasting and I'm already on the GD diet but honestly its too much food for me and my fasting numbers are not budging.. SO probably gonna have to go on insulin again for the duration like pregnancy #1 since high normal for non-pregnant women is too high in pregnancy.


Sorry for the looooong vent but I needed it so thanks for letting me share

If you want the diet I'll be happy to share but it's a lot food it seems to me ....
