Skip a meal or two while pregnant right before a doctors visit just so you won't "gain too much" when they weigh you?


Just for the record, this is NOT me; I would NEVER EVER do this, just wondering what you ladies have to say about something like this; I know someone who does this and it irritates me.

Wife to Jason (5-21-05) Mommy to Brodey Trenton (9-24-07) and Sophia Cheyenne (9-15-08) and Kennady Harper is due 3-24-11!!

Pft. I was ALWAYS eating when I was pregnant. I didn't care how much weight I gained. But when I hit the 190 mark I start to cry and cut back lol. And when I couldn't fit into my size 3s and 5s I cried for days on end.

I eat a lot too; lately I've been feeling very queasy but I still make myself eat. I just think it's unhealthy to NOT eat while pregnant. I read something recently that said skipping a meal while pregnant is like taking the breast away from a hungry baby; you just don't do it.

Yeah I couldn't STOP eating. But I needed to gain weight as I had a hard time gaining prior to being pregnant. So I can't help you lol
