I am super bummed! I was doing very well in the weight gaining department! Until the last 2 weeks!! Which considering I found out when I was 5 weeks really only means I did good for 4 weeks. but still I have gained a total of 5 lbs, since this morning!! Yesterday I had only gained 4 lbs and today I woke up and gained .8 lbs! I walked 3 miles yesterday, drank water and ate pretty dang healthy! I am scared! I also found STRETCHMARKS!! like 3 on each of my hips, one on my boob and one on my leg! I am freaking out a little bit. I have been lotioning almost daily. I was already overweight when I got pregnant and I was really hoping to not gain very much weight during this pregnancy.
Now don't get me wrong, I will take whatever abuse my body needs to take to have a healthy baby!! I am enjoying every second, but let me have this little freakout moment with no judging. please.
stretchmarks, I dont know if there is anything i can do besides drink water and lotion, which I am doing, and I will have to let that one go...
QUESTION: IS IT NORMAL TO DEVELOP STRETCHMARKS AT 11.5 WEEKS/!?!?!?!? AM I DOOMED FOR WHEN I GET BIG??
question 2: how much did you gain in the first trimester? Am I doomed? Is there anything that helped you in any stage during your pregnancy to keep your weight under control?
any advice will be greatly appreciated.
