Here we go again....
You're gaining too much...
Will you lose it after you give birth?
And the fact of the matter is that I've made changes in my lifestyle that enable me to get back down to my 140 lb goal. I have to believe in myself. But it's hard when you're starting to feel the weight and see changes. One thing is for sure. I'm gaining differently that with the other pregnancies. My legs are remaining toned and slender for the most part. My arms are toned and thin. My butt and gut are taking the brunt of the blows. Which is normal I guess. I just keep telling myself: "Your body stores fat during pregnancy so that you can nurse it off after birth." And this is very true for me. I tend to lose A LOT right after birth. I think I came home from the hospital having lost 30 lbs with the other two. I tend to have a lot of amniotic fluid too. With both my pregnancies my caregiver told me that. And I swell like crazy the last few months. So I do think water weight plays a role.
Okay....talked myself down.
