Re: Let's talk weight gain
Im a lot more conscious about it this time. Last time I gained about 55ish lbs (hard to say for sure b/c I stopped weighing myself at 37 weeks). My midwives never said anything about it, so I never thought it was excessive (esp b/c I started off underweight).
Well, this time around, Im easily 5-10lbs less than I was with my DS (gained 17ish lbs at 28.5weeks), but am a lot more conscious about it in general. I try not to let it stress me, especially b/c I know my weight/diet/exercise are all just fine, and b/c I tend to lose it ALL in the first 6 weeks breastfeeding.
