View Full Version : 2 weeks to not be so fat

07-28-2008, 08:50 PM
My doctor has yet to say anything about my weight gain and I'm dreading the moment that he does.

I started my pregnancy about 30lbs heavier than I would have liked (the good news is that it was a result of quitting smoking), and I've now gained 30 according to my scale. Personally, I'm not that worried about it. I've lost a lot of weight before and I know how it's done. I'm practically itching to start jogging again.

But ya hate for anyone else to tell you you're too fat! smileys/smiley36.gif Believe me, nobody knows it more than I do!

Got two weeks until my next appointment. Time to cut back on the peanut butter cups. smileys/smiley9.gif

Especially since it's the day I'm taking the dreaded glucose test...

I gained 30 lbs in my first trimester alone. When I found out my blood pressure went thru the roof and I freaked out. So since then I tell the nurse not to tell me what I weigh. Im not going to worry about it and get myself all worked up. There are worse things than being overweight during pregnancy in my opinion. I have to take the glucose test in a couple of weeks also! Yuckie!!

Well, the appointment was today...

I don't yet know the results of the glucose test. They haven't put them in the computer yet. But I did really like the orange stuff! haha. I was worried about a bad taste, but I was sad when my glass was over. smileys/smiley4.gif

I had gained 10lbs in the last 6 weeks, bringing me up to 30lbs total. Not too bad, except that I was already about 30lbs overweight when I got pregnant (I always say that was fortunate, because it happened after I quit smoking). Actually, I had just started a diet/exercise program to work on those pounds when I found out I was pregnant and stopped.

The doctor mentioned that my weight gain was a bit high, but he didn't harp on it, which makes me feel not too bad about it.

I'm personally not too worried. I know that I'm not going to have a problem losing once I can put on my jogging shoes!

But Keeley. I love your saying. It's become my new motto "There are worse things than being overweight during pregnancy."
