Were you (or are you?) obsessed with your weight gain during pregnancy? Or could you not care less?
I write for The Bump, and I'm working on an article about the obsession with pregnancy weight gain.
We'd like to feature some real moms in the piece and would REALLY love to hear your stories.
looking for stories/quotes about stuff like: if you had/have a personal
weight-gain goal, how often you weighed yourself at home, getting
nervous (or not) for weigh-ins at the OB, if/how you tried to "control"
your weight gain, if/how you tracked your weight gain, how often you
thought about it, if you wound up gaining more or less than you wanted
to, if spurts of weight gain freaked you out, if you thought gaining
weight during pregnancy sucked, or if you were glad to have a good
excuse to gain weight without criticism...really anything you are up
for sharing that relates to pregnancy pounds.
If you don't feel
like posting publicly here, email me your story (or just like a
sentence or two) at erinvanvuuren at gmail dot com.
(p.s. these are some of my articles
- I just don't have a bump name b/c I'm freelance now)
