i'm 31 weeks today, and man am I ready to get this little soccer player out of my tummy!!
Right now i'm starting to worry about the post pregnancy weight lost. During my first trimester and beginning of the second, I thought I was invinsible and ate everything that came into my imagination. (not just sight... I will go out of my way to eat nice!) and one of my greatest weakness was pasta... So at 7 months, i've gained about 30 lbs already! And hopefully, little kiddo isn't 30 lbs!! So unless the excess is all water weight... I'm basically screwed!!
I've been looking into yoga for preggy women... I wonder if that really helps in the aftermath?...
Another one of my concern is that... Ok... Waist fat.. That's understandable, you know, there's a baby in there stretching it out. But why are my thighs... My butt... My calfs! Getting so huge?
Note that I was never a big girl... Ok I was a !**@!, but now I have barely any knees... My thighs and calves just integrated into one!! I really don't want to spend the rest of my life working the weight off... I really want the quickest recovery to my normal size. (heidi klum did it... 6 weeks after delievery.. She was in victoria secret fashion show...)
i am so extremely jealous of those cute girls and their mini skirts... I can't wait....
If anyone has any advice or wisdom... Please share... :cry:
(btw: I was never a couch potato... Infact I worked at a restaurant 8-10 hrs a day up until last week... "30 weeks into preggy")
((ooo oo and advice to get rid of stretch marks too!!))
Hi I am also 31 weeks...From what I have heard and from watching all of my friends go through pregnancy I have seen that all of them lost their baby weight fast and even some extra weight as well...Once their little one's were born they were never left with free time or without something to do so the weight just poured off of them...So hopefully you won't have to worry so much after your little one is born..Just take care of him/her and you should be fine=) also drinking lots of water and walking has always helped me in the past too lose weight fast and to keep myself healthy....And I am sure that once you have this baby the stroller won't be too far from the door...Good luck=)
Oh sorry and one more thing I get all those little magazines too thay show how all the stars lost their baby weight fast..But let me tell you they have a lot of money and I have read that almost all of them have c-section births and afterwards have the works done..Liposuction, tummy tucks, and a boob lift..So unless you have loads of money none of us will ever look like them 6-8 weeks later after delivery...What can I say? The stars just have it all...Lol
Don't worry about it so much hun! I'm 38 weeks and just finally hit that omg i"m going to be huge forever stage! My mom isn't being very sensitive with the issue and is just feeding off her 'always so skinny daughter' having a little pudge here and there! It's definitely getting to me! I started at 118lbs and at my appointment last week was 157lbs. That's 39 lbs with still 2 weeks to go! I was a little underweight for my height, 5'6", so 40 lbs is pretty normal. Keep that in mind hun! A lot of women gain 50 or 60lbs in their first pregnancy! I think we're doing pretty great in that case!
Your butt, thighs, and legs kind of have to get a little larger to help you hold up all that extra weight on your tummy! (my concern is my arms!) i'm starting to realize that the best way to go about it is to give yourself a nice extended goal rather than saying' "okay! I have to lose all this weight in a month!" i'm guessing this is your first child, like me, so there is a decent chance it will all come off pretty easily. Just don't let yourself get discouraged if it takes a little longer than you expected.
Just imagine your little baby and remember that this extra weight is all for him/her! If you're gaining weight, so is your little one! We all want a healthy baby right? My husband constantly reminds me just to enjoy being pregnant and to let myself enjoy eating for once. He says, "do it for the baby!" it's not permanant and one day in the near future you will have your awesome body back and rock all those great jeans your used to wear once again. ;)
