18w2d weigh in and I don’t want to be fat, pregnant lady

Published March 30, 2014 by ivfdream

I weighted myself today as I do every week. Now, let me set the story up. I had put on 2 lbs more than I should(according to those rules) for the first trimester and I was happy enough and trying to stay at that. As in trying to put on weight as I should be, according to the rules.
So, when I see a two pound gain today, I felt very wrong and sad and guilty that I was worrying about something so silly when I had finally became pregnant after all the bad history and trauma.
I’ve started keeping a food diary, I stuck to normal eating today. Three meals, two snacks and of course eating if I was hungry cos I’m not stupid enough to starve. I’m trying to make sure I only eat beneficial foods. I had a takeout in Thursday night and an awful convenience dinner from Tesco on Friday. We had planned to make a salmon stir fry but when we checked the salmon that was meant to be defrosting, it was stinking and gone off so we had to go to tesco at 7 at night and get a quick wedges and breaded fish meal which was not tasty.
Then, I visited my friends and ate lots of chocolate biscuits and my DH got me a treat dinner from Avoca. Sweet of him. Roast chicken, carrot mash and potato gratin. So tasty.
But then, Sunday morning and this!
I’m used to treating as much as I want, to be honest and working it off. I hadn’t been walking much this week due to busy week, raining outside etc so I am back to my daily walks, which burn off about 180 calories. A slice or two of bread but important to for me to chill out and keep semi fit.
Rant over. Need to be less good to myself! But, a weekly treat will be fine. Just not every day.
