I am 19wks and this is my 5th baby as some of you know. I gained over 80 pounds with my first, 60 with my 2nd, 40 with my third and 40 with my last baby. I am overweight cause I never had a big enough break between my babies to really lose the weight, well over 200. I try to hide it well and most people think I do a really good job at it.

So I am asking do ya hate me cause with this little baby(girl) I have not gained any weight!! WOOOO HOOOO! I have even lost weight! I am doing a happy baby dance!http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif She is doing great and my Blood Pressure is even down( I have cronic(sp?) high blood pressure)So I am on cloud nine!

Sorry to brag but I am so excited!!!http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley9.gif

I'm happy for you. It's always harder to NOT gain weight when you start out with a little extra to lose (I gained 70lbs this go round and refuse to acknowledge the scale anymore, I got 3 days left so screw itsmileys/smiley36.gif). But no, I'm not hating on you...it's them skinny chick Eleez and Marleeka who were already tiny who eat like pigs and still gain nothinghttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley7.gifPunks!smileys/smiley36.gif Edited by: FV Mom

Hey! I DID gain some weight......i've gained I think 15 pounds so far?! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley5.gifhttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifBut I do compile alot of walking to make up for the extra calories I inhale. I must have walked 3 or 4 miles today from a festival we went to!

As long as your doctor isn't worried about it, I think it's great that you haven't gained any weight. Lord knows it takes FOREVER coming off so celebrate the good news girl! That's awesome! I certainly don't hate you............Welcome to the "Marleeka and Eleez" club! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifJust kidding!

This is my 5th kid too.. I am due December 1st.. I'm 16.5 weeks!
I have gained like 12 pounds already, but I'm not worried cause I started this pregnancy a size 0 and now I'm a size 2 LOL Does anyone hate me??? LOL JK
But really that is awesome! Good for you! It's great to feel healthy during pregnancy!

Mine are 8, 6, 5, and 2... 3 girls and the youngest is a boy... I wont be finding out the sex of this baby till he/she is born! Something I've never done before, I've always found out the sex at the u/s... I decided with my possibly last baby I want to try the whole Surprise It's a ____!

I don't hate you. I gained 60 lbs w/ my first. Never really lost that weight then I gained 20 lbs w/ my son. So far w/ this one I have gained 15 lbs. In fact I went to the doctor on Monday and from 2 weeks ago I hadn't gained or lost. She said I lost weight and asked if I was eating. I was like yea, lol.

I just had to jump in on this thread because there are so many others with 4 kids and one more on the way! Never knew so many others as crazy as I am! :o)

We have 4 girls, 10, 8, 5 and almost 3. And the baby is our 1st boy. So excited...but scared of diaper changes! smileys/smiley3.gif

Are you saying I'm crazy???http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley3.gif

http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifI am very crazy! I glad that you decided to join in! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif

Yes, I just tend to "call it like it is"...

If your house is NOT crazy, then girl, you need to write a book or do some "how to" videos on how to have a calm house with 4 or more kids! LOL

Although I do have a friend who, like us, has 4 girls and is due 2 months after me. But somehow, she doesn't strike me as the crazy type. Maybe she just saves it for home. I tend to share my craziness with everyone. he he he smileys/smiley36.gif

Oh, and I am due in 9 days. GOING even MORE CRAZY!! Pregnancies don't seem to feel any shorter the more you have. KWIM??

08-23-2008, 10:38 AM
I also wear my craziness on my sleeve. congrats on your upcoming birth, Good you can let me know what it is like before my Layla gets here! They will induce me in 7 weeks so if you don't totally lose it by then will you let me know, there may be hope for me!http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifNOT!!!

08-23-2008, 12:11 PM
I think I save my craziness for home, lol. Guess that's why I would rather go out then stay home, lol

Congrats to all new mommies and mommies-to-be :-)
Reading this and smiling,I wish I was size 0 !!
I had my last baby 3 years ago and still trying to get back down to a 6,LOL
I have about 10lbs left to go but now I find out I am having all thos PG symptons again.
I am falling asleep as I write this,LOL
And make no mistake I resemble the Pillsbury Dough man when I am preggers smileys/smiley36.gif

08-29-2008, 11:57 AM
My legs sure look like I stole them from the Pillsbury Dough boy! At my last appt., I was kind of "hoping" that they were bad enough to just admit me to the hospital and get this child out of me. Now they're telling me they don't talk "induction" until 41 weeks...as if I'll be alive then! Ugh. Just 3 more days until my due date and neither of the midwives I've been seeing are on call on Labor Day.

I told my husband I feel like I am getting ripped off! The whole reason I chose this practice was for the midwives and they're only on call from 8 to 5 Monday through Friday...except Labor Day!!!!! HELLO???
