Re: Pregnancy After Loss (October 1-15)

To those who have messaged me to be added to the list on the first post, I think I've got everyone added now.

No consistent movement yet but the doppler is keeping me sane and stress free. I've been migraine free for almost a week straight now and I'm hoping it stays that way. Feeling really good lately. DH even got lucky this week, lol!

Only I know the bump is there. Guess, I don't have to worry about the problem of showing too soon, as I never lost the baby belly after DD was born
I'm still taking a bit of a nap with Levi, too! Only problem is, I got my hair cut on the weekend - like it a lot... but when it's curly I can't really lay on it until it's totally dry without making it go all weird... which means I have to fit in a shower after naptime?!

I wish I didn't show until later weeks. I'd love to be able to hide this bump for a good while. Yes, even if it was by having a belly all ready!

I'm 2days ahead of you and I am noticing a slight bulge (not visible to anyone but me) but by evening, DH is noticing it and saying "your belly is firmer" so I'd sy things are growing right on schedule!

Re: Pregnancy After Loss (October 1-15)

I know this is silly... But today I weighed myself and I gained 17lbs so far which is a lot more than I was expecting (4 weeks ago I was up 7lbs). And that of course has me a little down but the worst thing is I feel ungrateful about finally having a pregnancy go right and I'm all depressed about my weight? Seriously. It's ridiculous.

I felt the same way when the bloat weight started and I was like "gaining ALREADY!?!" And I felt guilty because a few pounds are nothing compared to a healthy baby, but I was totally conflicted too. Bloat weight has gone away now, so I feel better, but I know when I start really gaining ill be right back where you are now :/

It's okay, mama! It's okay to complain about aspects of pregnancy that aren't awesome---doesn't make you ungrateful---makes you HUMAN!

I get it, Alice! I was riding high a few weeks ago because I wasn't gaining, and felt "all riiiiight, I'm so gonna gain like 10 pounds and be that pregnant lady who leaves the hospital thinner than when she conceived." And then I put on 3 pounds this week alone.

I want a healthy baby and all that good jazz. Buuut, I was finally starting to get off the extra 20 pounds of chub that I've put on since my wedding...and here I am, pregnant again. So, there's another year before I can get "skinny" again.

And for what? Seriously? So I can look like some sort of model? I have some chunk because I like to cook and eat good food, gosh darn it! PLUS 4 pregnancies in 5 years can do a lot to one's physique. I work out and I'm healthy. Yet, I still critique myself in the mirror. It's so dumb.

But, you're/we're not being ungrateful. None of us would trade our babies for our pre-pregnancy bodies. We're just being human. Even the really awesome things in life have trade-offs. In the end, a few pounds is a pain in the neck, but it's not a big deal unless we choose to MAKE it a big deal. This culture puts a lot of pressure on women especially, but when we focus on the things (and people) that really matter, we do find that the scale is basically meaningless.

So, there's my long-winded rant.
