Dr K is gonna KILL ME!!!!!
My last OB appt I only gained 2.5 lbs. Yay right???
I went home at lunch today and stepped on the scale just for fun y’know???
According to my scale, I’ve gained 8 lbs this month! HOLY CRAP!!!
And HER scale weighs heavy anyway since I go there after work and you’re always heavier at night…..
Granted, I always gain A LOT of weight. I gained 44 lbs with Daboy, 68 with Maggie and so far with this one, I’ve packed on 28 lbs. I guess it’s a good thing that I “hide” my weight very well and I’m usually a very athletic, active person and I lose the weight pretty fast, but Jeez Laweeze, If I keep up at this pace, I’m going to be 200 lbs in July. I’m 5’6” tall and generally weigh in at 140 – 150 lbs. I think that’s ok don’t you??
The thing that’s getting to me is this: With this pregnancy, I only want to eat fruits & veggies. I eat a salad as lunch 3 days a week and a salad either with or AS dinner almost every night. Very light on the dressing and occasionally I’ll go “fancy” with a Chef salad. As for fruits, I’m eating a banana, an orange and an apple EVERY DAY! I went for 2 straight weeks where if I didn’t have fresh pineapple at least once a day, things got ugly. I drink nothing but water (and my cup of coffee every morning) all day. I swear, this kid’s gonna be a swimmer when he gets out! Seriously, I drink over a half gallon of water a day. PLUS the glass of milk with dinner each night. Should I cut back on the fruit? Too many carbs or whatever lives in fruit??
With Maggie, I can understand the weight gain as I had to have ice cream every night. And cake, oh God! The cakes I ate while carrying Mag…
So you tell me, O wise internets, WHAT THE HECK AM I DOING WRONG???
Granted, It’s still winter-ish here. And I have been cooped up in the house all winter.
So, the weight gain *could* be related to sedentary lifestyle (Dr K’s NOT gonna buy this), but it’s DARK out by the time I get home, someone has to cook dinner for everybody & then there’s housework, laundry, storytime, bathtime & then off to bed. Doesn’t leave a lot of time for walking or even exercising in my room. Maybe I could build an exercise routine that incorporates folding & hanging clothes or maybe running the vacuum???? Ideas? Suggestions???
