I’m the Eating Machine

Yesterday I had a very successful pre-natal appointment. The battery on our bathroom scale died a few weeks ago, and I’ve been fretting about how much weight I’ve gained ’cause it seems that every time I wake up from sleeping my tummmy is bigger than it was when I fell asleep. I was starting to feel like a huge cow. I know, I’m SUPPOSED to get bigger, and I know I’m SUPPOSED to gain weight, but when you have no idea how much you’ve gained, it’s quite easy to feel like a sloth. So of course, the first thing you do during a pre-natal check up is take your shoes off and get weighed (and of course ALL of my appointments have been right after lunch…). So imagine my surprise when I find out that I only gained 1 lb over the past 4 weeks! My Dr. was very impressed. That makes my grand pregnancy weight gain up to 9 lbs – 4 lbs in the 1st 2 weeks after my Dr told me to cut back on running, 4 lbs over December (Christmas, New Year’s etc..) and 1 lb during January. He says now I can gain up to a lb a week 😯 I don’t know if I can eat THAT much. I’ve been eating everything in sight already!

  1. Prego, running, and gaining 1 pound… your bun in the oven is definitely going 2B an athelete; Canadian Style.

    Good job on your health ethix CG.

  2. Sounds like the baby is doing good. If you want to gain more wait, try drinking a cup of bacon grease every morning for breakfast. :) I love when doctors try to fatten you up to fit the weight gain charts. Eat when you are hungry and I think you will do fine. Your body knows better than the doctor, and its doing exactly what it was designed to do.

  3. Sounds like you’re doing great. :) Most likely, anything you gain from here on out will be all baby weight. Unless you suddenly have a huge urge for daily Slurpees from 7/11 like I did. I gained 15 pounds in my last two months. Not good. lol

  4. Don’t fret, I’m gaining enough weight for you!

    *now pointing at other bloggers*
    (and you, and you, and you, and you…)

  5. Wow! Wow! Wow! I am pretty stunned. Having gained 60 in my pregnancy (which I only admit because it was mostly water), all I can say is wow. Good for you!
