I feel very blessed to be pregnant but I am also scared because of my weight. Anyone else in here have any worries about this?

:dothug: I know I do. I try not to think about it too much though, even though it is easier said than done.

I know exactly how you feel - research shows that us moms can have healthy pregnancy and healthy delivers too. (((hugs))) to you and your precious baby.

I just worry about getting the weight off after the baby comes. I have already set my mind to it though.

It does hurt to go into the doctor every month and see the scale rise and rise. The weight I am at right now is the heaviest I have ever been. So, that is scary for me. I've gained about 20 pounds so far I think.

try not to be too fearful...above average sized women can have perfectly healthy and wonderful pregnancies just like anyone else...a lot of what is out there against pregnant woman being pregnant is sterotypical.....just like thinner women, we need to watch our weight gain, eat well.....we deserve to be pregnant.....and we deserve to go through our pregnancies..just as happy as any other woman...keep your chin up..and enjoy the experience while you can....it can go by fast!

thanks everyone for the great responses. I am going to be extra careful and eat well during the pregnancy. I can use the next 9 months or so as a life change for me with food.
