I had my first child when I was 19. I went from 155lbs to 250lbs. My daughter weighed in at 10lbs 5oz. the placenta was 12 lbs. When I left the hospital I weighed 190lbs.
This time around I started at 225lbs. Im also 28 now. And gained some weight while in the navy. Right now I feel like a blimp and I'm crying all the time over clothes not fitting. My concern is not that my husband will leave me. I will survive, I survived when my first husband left when I was 4 months pregnant. My concern is Im going to lose my job because I wont be able to lose the weight.
I'm trying very hard to stay in shape while pregnant, and eating healthy, but the lbs are still packing. my belly is just that all baby. my butt and thys however. I feel like I should still be able to pull my fat jeans up. The last time I weighed in at my appointment I weighed in at 240lbs minus the 10 lbs of uniform and I'm sitting at 230. But medical never subtracts the steel toe boots plus 5 lbs of layers I have to wear at work.View Thread
