Pregnancy Weight Gain
Do you hate it when people ask how much weight you gained with your pregnancy? After I lost all the pregnancy weight from Talmage, I was happy to tell anyone that I gained 50 lbs. But now, being pregnant again, I feel like I'm becoming obsessed with my pregnancy weight gain and I feel bad for how much I've gained. It can be so frustrating. I feel like I have to be on a diet and never give in to cravings or I'll gain 2-3 lbs in a day. And, with my luck, those 2-3 lbs usually stay for good. It's so hard because I crave sweets all the time but I can hardly ever eat them, in fear of gaining too much weight. I want to enjoy this pregnancy and eat what I want but I just can't. I'm determined to only gain around 25-30 lbs but it's so hard. I've been working out this pregnancy too, but I don't know how much it's helping the weight gain. I'm just getting kind of down and discouraged about it. I stress out everytime I get weighed at the doctor. I feel so embarrassed.
