ugh...need a pick me up from fellow moms...

I started at 145 lbs now I'm almost 38 wks and I am weighing 181 lbs ugh!! I'm not caving to every craving, so I've also limited my caloric intake to 2000 a day (the doc said don't go any lower) is this a high amount of weight I feel awful cause my doc said it was extreme...

  • No, it's okay! I started at 100pds and I'm up to 145pds now! I know it may seen like a HUGE number, but imagine..your carrying two of you now. Two = Twice the weight. Try to keep calm. Nothings going on unless you suspect something is wrong.

  • You're fine! I went from 130 to 194 the day I delivered. I gained more than twice what they say you're supposed to. After the first 6 weeks most of it was gone, and after 3 months, all of it was. Enjoy your body! You are making a baby! You are supposed to revel in how your body feels, not feeling guilty.

  • well I am 5 feet tall and started out at 135ish and for the longest time i gained no weight, then i hit 25ish weeks and blew up I weigh 186 now and my doctor does not care, she says that as long as I feel ok then I should be alright! Good luck, alot of it is probably water weight, you should be able to get the wieght off moving around with a new baby!
