1st Trimester

Piece of advice from new mom: weight gain

Yeah, weight gain is a hot, nasty topic but I am going there.

If I had to give any advice to you guys, it would be to not gain any more than needed. Some care more (like me) than others about this.

 

I gained 20 and still 3 weeks later, the last 2 will NOT freaking come off.  I thought with a 20lb weight gain, it would be a snap, but no. Stupid.

Anyways, thought I would share.

Re: Piece of advice from new mom: weight gain

  • I'm sorry I don't mean to be rude but are you complaining that only 3 weeks after giving birth you have 2 lbs to lose and you are back at your prepregnancy weight? Geesh I wish I had your problems!
  • Ditto PP.  I honestly can't believe dropping two pounds is even on your mind with such a beautiful brand new DD in your life.
  • What can I say? I give a huge crap about my weight.

    Then why don't you go take a huge crap & maybe that will take care of those pesky 2 lbs?

  • I would probably spend more of my energy enjoying that beautiful new daughter rather than agonizing over 2 lbs.  2 lbs. is water weight goodness.
  • REALLY? You are complaining that you only lost 18 of your 20 pounds in 3 weeks? Perhaps your body is trying to tell you somehting? Maybe that something is that losing 18 pounds in 3 weeks was tough enough?

    Gah. People like you need to eat a sandwich.

  • Agree with other post...you should be more worried about your newborn not your weight at 3 weeks. Are you breast feeding? Because those 2 lbs could be the fact that your boobs are filled with milk. After you have a baby your body does change so there is a chance you will have a hard time with those last 2 lbs. Maybe you should start working out.

    As for the other 1st tris that look at this, gain the weight that is healthy for you. DO NOT try to not gain weight just so you don't have as much to get rid of. Eat healthy and your body will gain the correct weight it needs.

  • this post makes me sad...

     it says more about you and than anything else.

    and does anyone esle also think this is an AW "look at me, i still have TWO pounds to lose"  cry me an effin river

  • wow...enjoy your daughter...and dont be so selfish...two pounds, seriously??? like pp said...go take a crap

  • Well, you seem to be a bit hard on yourself since it's only been three weeks but good for you for already losing most of the weight! Who wants to be a heffer afterwards!!!!!  I'm watching everything I eat so I don't have too much of a problem either!
  • Hmm...yeah. I'm still agonizing over TWENTY pounds. Being a mom is so much more than reaching back to your pre-baby life. I hope your priorities shift more as you grow up.

    So I didn't lose it all the first time around. I was the perfect weight when I got pregnant with number 2 and I'm a happy, secure person. I'm way too busy MOTHERING to freak over 2 pounds.

    And Lucy likes me cuddly.

  • Why in the hell are you worried about 2 pounds.  Some people gain way more weight than you did and don't lose any of it.  Take this time and spend it with your daughter and please don't pass on the obsessive weight watching to her. 

  • Thanks Papillion!

     

    Eh, think as you wish. All is good. Just because I have a newborn, does not mean I lose the right to care about myself and my body.

    Of course I gained a healthy amount and ate very, very well for my baby. The doctor visits always were right on track. 

     

    I wish you all happy and healthy pregnancies. It is good to see the snark is well and alive! :)

    I think this is crazy.  No offense, but this is not the place to put this post. Women should not be worrying about their weight gain (especially someone who gained a very small amount of weight in the pregnancy)... let alone 2 lbs 3weeks after birth.  Go take a poop- there is your 2 lbs.

     Please understand that you may have "issues" with your weight-- but it;s not healthy and it's not healthy to project that on to women who are in the beginning of their pregnancies. 

     I would better understand if you were on here because you gained an unhealthy amount of weight, as per your Dr, and you were 6 months out of birth and having a hard time... but this is irresponsible to post this.  Go to the newborn board... or whatever and see how this post would fly there.

  • To me this sounds like a backwards way of bragging to people that you have lost all of your baby weight in three weeks.  Good for you, but everyone is different and needs to gain a healthy weight for them as an individual. Gaining 20 pounds may have been perfect for you, but not for everyone.  I agre with the PP who said to eat healthy and your body will take care of itself.

    It's 2 effing pounds.  I've been trying to lose that since the 5th grade.  You sound absolutely ridiculous.

    Wow.  You are a real gem as well.  NONE of us want to be heffers after we give birth but if that is the price I pay for a healthy pregnancy and baby then bring on the hefferness!!! PLEASE!

  • Seriously 3 weeks after your baby is born this is what you are posting about? GET OVER YOURSELF! aaah I can't be on this board today with dumb a$$'s like you!
  • way to keep those unrealistic body expectations alive, nicole richie

  • Seriuosly.  Can you say VAIN?!

    Worried about 2 pounds after 3 weeks?!  WOW!!!!

  • cZacZa member

    WOW. You should just be greatful that you have a heathly happy baby. I have tried for 9 months to get pregnant and that is the last of my worries. Isn't your health and the babies health what is important?? 2 pounds!! There is a lot more to life.

    hmm yeah thats a good idea...watch what you eat...dont gain too much weight...who cares about the nourishment of your baby

  • I am 8 months PP and still have an extra 10-12 lbs packed on. You can take your 2 lbs and SUCK IT!  Wink

     

     

  • Congrats on the weight loss.  But really stressing over 2 pounds is a bit silly. 
  • You're lucky you have only 2 left to lose.  I gained 30 with DS and days after delivery I was only down 6, my baby weighed 7!  By my 6 wk pp check-up I was only down 13, and I was EBFing.  I eventually did lose it, but I don't know what you're complaining about.  You're very lucky, and I don't know why you're worried about 2 lbs at 3 wks PP.
