I'm still 5-8 lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight. The doctor on Monday said that my weight is doing good, and mentioned that my regular doctor is a worrywart about weight. I just need to cut back on the sweets and carbs and eat more veggies, but Momma needs her chocolate!

My body is so weird. I have gained 27lbs so far...but I usually gain most if not all my weight in the beginning and then I start to lose or stay steady with my weight until birth. I hope I don't gain anymore....

I cut back on carbs and eat way less, often still feeling hungry and I still gain weight so easily. I can't imagine how much I would gain if I ate normally. I feel like I am dieting and it's just really hard. I guess I just needed to whine.
This sounds just like me! I have the ODD treat, like once a week, but otherwise drink tons of water, eat so many fruits and veggies, low fat meat etc. I'm already up 15 pounds. It's very frustrating...and as much as I tell myself the important thing is to just be healthy, it's so hard to see those numbers go up. It seems to pack on so easily, and then it's an insane struggle to get the weight off after the baby is born. Waaaaah...my whine too! lmao

Thanks to Vicki for my gorgeous siggy!
