Re: any mamas starting off overweight?
I'm 5'3 and weigh 161lbs pre-pregnancy. Last time I weighed myself was around lunchtime and I weighed 164, but I think the 3lb difference was because I weighed myself "empty" first thing in the AM for my pre-pregnancy weight and weighed myself after drinking fluids and having breakfast for the second weight. I'm gonna weigh again on Monday and see how it goes!
For my height, the ideal weight is 120-125. Which, is where I feel the most comfortable in my own skin and the most active and have the least pain/discomfort/etc.
Last time I got pregnant I weighed 168 the day I POAS and delivered at 173. I checked out of the hospital at 151 two days after DS was born! And within 48 hours of being home, I was down to 138. It was getting back on hormonal BC that SCREWED me (30lbs in one month is NOT normal!!!). So, I'm hoping to get that lucky with THIS pregnancy and never go within 10 feet of hormonal birth control again!
