I'm starting this pregnancy a bit overweight, so naturally I am concerned about gaining too much for the whole pregnancy.
I'm 5'5" and weigh 79kg (which makes me about 48lbs overweight) when I went to my last doctor's appointment. Having the scale read 79kg was an eye-opener and brought home the fact that I have to be really careful and watch my weight while pregnant (I have a family history of DM and gestational DM).
Anyway to cut the story short, I've been eating healthy (not dieting, just making wise food choices) and exercising regularly (walking 40-50mins 5x/week), and when I went on the scale last week I found out I lost about 8lbs. I felt supremely happy about the weight loss but still kept at my routine of smart eating and exercise. (I don't have morning sickness BTW, thank goodness)
Alas, I weighed myself again this morning and found I gained it all back!! I keep thinking water retention is the culprit and I want it to be true, otherwise it would mean that whatever I do to not gain too much weight while pregnant is useless.
I feel really disappointed.
