maybeitsmadeline said:Any questions for other plus size FTM/STM/etc.? Do you think your weight has made you less excited to be pregnant? I'm trying to figure out if it's affected me. As stated above, I lost a good amount prior to my BFP, but I wasn't done. I'm satisfied with my size right now bc I'm not uncomfortable really, but curious if I am robbing myself of some joy because I wasn't a perfect BMI.
Any struggles as your pregnancy progresses? Recently, I had been struggling with body image as I have lost about 75 lbs prior to getting pregnant and seeing my stomach grow again was kind of a mindf*ck. I've gotten better about it though because I feel her moving and see my stomach jump when she kicks so I know it's her and am wrapping my mind around the fact that it's not fat. I spoke with my doctor about this too and she said that it's normal to feel that way, but to realize that my weight is stable and I'm not putting on fat, but growing a human. She put a lot of emphasis on this which helped my perspective a lot.**Stuck in the box**More than 10 years ago, I lost about 60 pounds (Was about 230 at 5'9", got down to about 170 initially, then a few years ago got back up to about 190. Joined weight watchers, got back down to around 160 then eventually evened out at around 175, which I was ok with. I have only recently started having some anxiety about my weight regarding this pregnancy. I gained nothing in the first trimester but have been gaining quite a bit in the last month or so. I know that I will gain weight from the pregnancy, but I feel like it's going too fast and maybe I am gaining too much? Doctor hasn't said anything about it though, guess I'll talk about this at my next appointment as she knows none of this history, I was living in another state at the time I lost the initial weight.
