Official weigh in and 20week ultrasound.
My weight - 244 (So 7 lbs gained from prepregger weight)
Baby's weight - 10oz.
Right on track for 20 weeks.
But I cannot stress enough how important it is FOR ME to keep tracking my food. Even if I'm not trying to lose, I don't want to lose the habit, and especially awareness of my sodium intake and water drinking. I slacked off, but I'm feeling the effects of my laziness.
Back on track.
May even get back into walking at night, now that temps are dropping.
Up 43lbs at 31 weeks , It will be a miracle if i can keep it under 60lbs now
Hey ladies, this is my first post. I really need to start tracking my food because my gain is out of control =( Around how many calories do y'all consume? I'm at 174lbs now.
16weeks, up 14lbs =/
I was trying to not gain more than 25lbs, but that just doesnt seem possible now.
Hi guys - I'm 16 weeks and was diagnosed with Gestational diabetes by 8 weeks so have been on Glyburide 2.5mg at night for that and have been tracking my food. My OB said it would be good for me to lose 10-15 pounds during my first trimester so I left my calorie level at -0.5 lbs/week during the first trimester which gave me 2000 cal/day. And i think bc of the baby requiring more calories than that I ended up losing a total of about 12 lbs in the first trimester from my pre-pregnancy weight of 222 (at 5'2"). Since entering the 2nd trimester I upped my calories to maintenance (which is 2180 cal/day) and I've lost another 0.8 in the past 2 weeks. So total loss 12.8 lbs. Tracking for me has been KEY bc I've found that the week (12th wk) that I didn't track I gained weight (~2 lbs) and my sugars were higher than usual.
My OB wanted me to eat 1800 cal for the first trimester and I was like are you kidding me? I struggle to stay under 2000 calories on MFP as it is! You want me to eat less?! And so I nodded in agreement but secretly went home and kept eating my 2K and then when she said I could eat 2K I upped it to 2200. I need my food. For the 3rd trimester I think she'll give me 2300 and I'll probably do 2500 then. My doc is very skinny and i don't think she understands that some people just need more food. Lol. Anyway, as per her, my weight gain goal is a maximum of 20lbs and a minimum of 0. She'd love it if I didn't gain a pound and now that I've gotten used to the idea I'm hoping the same, even though I know it'll be hard. Sigh, how I wish I was a skinny mini that had my doc telling me to EAT, EAT, EAT!!!!
