Nice lines!! WTG on the weight loss...so that's 25lbs you can gain in preg weight and still be only even with 3 months ago. Better than preg weight on top of your 3 month ago weight.
So I'm pretty sure I'm officially here now. Yippee! Oh and in things that make you go hmmm; TMI Alert...
today my cervix is like folded up, instead of more pointed down as normal it is almost horizontal, pointed posterior. This is notable b/c the same thing happened when I was pregnant with DS2. So really hoping it means something.
Yes, I wasn't going to 'bother' losing weight before getting pg but now I'm glad I did. I breached 200lbs with DD and that was a bit traumatic. I ate way too many big macs. :P I'm at 153 right now so I'm really hoping I can stay under 200. My problem now is getting more calories than I am on our current diet but not going completely insane. Our diet has us not eating sugar (no fruit either), dairy or fast carbs (like rice, potatoes and pasta). We pretty much eat veggies, lean meats and beans. It's a great way to eat and has us feeling healthier...but I'm not sure I'm getting enough calories for being pg. I already feel light headed sometimes when I'm not pg because of low blood sugar (I'm also low blood pressure). So now I have to find a happy medium.
That's weird about your cervix Lynn. I have an inverted uterus so everything is weird for me up there. LMAO
LOL Heather...yeah my old ob (moved so couldn't see him anymore) told me once that I had a tilted uterus. Whatever that means, but I wonder if it affects that stuff sometimes and also suspect it may be why I've only ever experienced back labor with my deliveries too.
I didn't necessarily need to lose weight before I got pregnant but I did follow a low carb diet and lost 12 pounds. I think starting from a lower weight makes me feel better about myself. For now I am still following a lowish carb diet but I think soon I will probably be stopping that. With my son I didn't gain a lot of weight, with my daughter I gained more (still with recommended limits), but I told myself I would do better this time! It is hard though, even now bein so early on,I feel hungry a lot more than normal.
I haven't felt more hungry yet, but I know it's coming. LOL. It's only a matter of time. I'm going to still try to stick to lean meats and more beans though. White carbs are such a crutch for me...easy and filling!
Yes, Lynn, my old doctor told me once years ago that my uterus is inverted. I had never heard of it and started to panic a bit. Then he said that *shouldn't* affect my ability to have kids. Shouldn't? WHAT? This was years ago so that wasn't the plan then anyways. I never had labour with DD as she was breech...but I did have more colon kicks than bladder kicks. I always thought that was because my placenta was in the front but now I'm not super sure. I hope my placenta isn't in the front again...I would love to feel baby more on the outside and be able to get the HB better with my home doppler.
Apparently a tilted uterus is really common!
