How is everyone doing in the weight gain department?
I weighted myself today and I'm only up 1 lb in the last 5 weeks. I'm SUPER happy about that because my diet has been utter garbage recently. I don't mind gaining weight, but I just don't want to gain as much as I did when I was pg with DD. See, I recently worked hard to lose 25lbs and was on this restrictive diet that cut out a lot of carbs and sugars. I was worried that adding them back would mean a huge gain.
My pre-preg weight this time is about 12 lbs lighter than I was with DD. I'm starting at 153 lbs this time and hoping to stay under 200 lbs. Last time I did not. I was huge and it was way more work to lose it afterwards.
At 10 weeks pg with DD I was up 4 lbs. Today is 9 weeks and I'm only up 1. That's good...but I'm more of a late gainer...when the Big Mac cravings kick in. Oh man, DH still doesn't know how many Big Macs I ate last pregnancy! I work at home with him now though so I might have a wee bit more accountability this time.
