Has anyone come to the point where they are wondering if the weight they have gained is normal?
As I look through the forums for Mums-to-be I see so many ladies asking this question “what is normal” and it got me thinking:
- Is my weight gain normal I have put on around 4,5 LG in 18 weeks. In myself I feel like I look good, my boobs are huge and my belly is nicely rounded but my face, legs etc have not changed.
- What can be considered as “normal” as we all know perfectly well no 2 pregnancy are identical so how can weight gain be? I genuinely think comparing your body to another persons at a time like this where we are growing can have quite a negative effect on your psyche.
I think if mum is eating healthy, feeling good and baby is happy and healthy inside her then we should be happy.
I know each and everyone of us is wondering about our post-pregnancy bodies in one way or another – but as long as we are active and eating healthy we are off to a good start right? It will take some determination if you are wanting that bikini body next summer, however for me it would have done anyway.
For ladies who are curious, I did find a pregnancy weight calculator that is tailored to yourself and isn’t a “generalistaion” to all women everywhere, it also gives parameters so you understand that it isn’t just 1 amount or you have gained too little / too much.
So I chose to embrace my new body, with all the weight gain & focus on being healthy and happy with a goal orientated plan for my post-pregnancy body.
What do you think? Are you feeling good about your baby body?
