Mothers use pregnancy as an excuse to gain weight!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Many women let themselves go during pregnancy and "eat for two". Do you think a lot of women use this an excuse to get fat? I do.

I fully admit that I totally did. I was 100lbs at the start of both pregnancies and gained 50 with the first and 30 with the second. I did exercise as much as I could though! I was just really excited for the one time in my life where I could eat anything without remorse haha

Yeah, because many, many people just love being fat. They dream about it at night.

Um your suppose to gain weight when your pregnant!





Yes, 12-15 lbs. Not out of control and you are only supposed to consume 300 calories more then you usually take in.

Wtf cares. Unless you are married to her than why is it your business?! Even if you were married to her I'd keep your mouth shut.

Some do take it over board but its their body, they'll def regret it later!! I've had 4 and I have baby chub but doesn't bother me that much. But I can't imagine having 50+ lbs to loose afterwards! Yikes!!

I don't think they use it as an excuse to get fat, they use it as an excuse to eat everything and anything they want. Getting fat, just comes with eating crap all day, every day.
One of my first questions to my doctor was I know I am not eating for two, how many calories do I need to eat extra a day to have a heathy pregnancy. Her answer was about 209 calories and then told me to add a yogurt a day and ill be good. That's what I did and I gained 28lbs and lost it in two weeks post birth.

 FYI, most doctors recommend between 20 and 30 lbs, unless you are overweight to begin with.
