I am yet to find anyone that is happy at 39 weeks pregnant. Just because of how bored they are and how much they want their body back and a cute baby to hold in their arms.
I have been reading what is happening to both me and my baby since I was around the 10th week of pregnancy and when I first found out that I was in for this big weight gain! So, this week I read it as usual and all I found out was…..nothing new was happening this week and I am literally a time bomb waiting for my baby to arrive!
Oh and a pound heavier compared to what I was last week!
Now I am missing everything that is on the banned food list and just want to enjoy my rice and seafood again. And I am sick of eating toast and other things because my baby has rejected pretty much all my favourite foods over the last few weeks.
Also when I was reading the weekly pregnancy diaries what really made me chuckle was the pie chart at the end of the articles. Each week, they would survey pregnant women at different stages of pregnancy and ask them how they felt. Well they all started feeling good but give them the final couple of weeks and no one had a nice word to say about it!
Makes me realise I am not alone on this one….
Plus it’s the work side of things – as you never know when your new baby is going to come along you never really know what work to plan and whether or not you will achieve your goals.
This leaves your life to waiting and hoping for the speedy arrival of your baby, so that you can walk normal again – instead of being like this silly duck!
From a weight loss point of view you know that from one day to another you could jump on the scales and be a stone lighter.
Something that sounds rather SMART right now!
Hopefully the next time I blog on a Tuesday about my pregnancy it will be to tell you that I am the proud mother of a beautiful baby girl……or maybe she likes it so much that she might stay in there for another week!
My target was to be the same as I was before pregnancy after pregnancy
Well this was the plan before cravings took over my body and made me feel rather crazy from constant needs for fatty and sugary foods. As I write this I have gained 21 pounds during my pregnancy and with the recommended amount based on my BMI to be 15-25 pounds I am really happy with the end game.
I may have binged – but I have also enjoyed plenty of fruit, vegetables, proteins, calcium and everything else that my body has wanted. Plus I doubt I will want a McDonalds for at least a year now! So that will mean that when I do return to my healthy lifestyle I will be fast food free.
It’s been a very interesting experience counting calories during my pregnancy and how my pregnancy food triggers have worked and now I am looking forward to the new chapter in my life with a new baby.
