Did anyone else experience difficulty in gaining weight? At 32 weeks, my midwife started expressing concern on my weight gain. I was 155 pre-pregnancy and to this point, I'm only at 162. I had terrible morning sickness for the first four months where I would eat, but I think I must have vomited just as much. At 34 weeks, they noticed the baby was measuring small. At 35 weeks, they had an u/s just to check on him and while all the dopplers were good with this blood flow, he was measuring around 33 weeks. Thankfully, at this weeks appointment (36), he's measuring 34. So, while he's still behind, he did make the week gain that I did. The doctor was pleased about that. But, they're still concerned with my weight gain. I swear I eat everything in sight though!
One thing does have me curious. I was an avid Mountain Dew drinker. That is basically all I ever drank. I could drink half a cube in a day. My mother, last year, had to cut Mountain Dew (she drank it like me) out of her diet completely. Within a very short period of time, weight just seemed to melt off of her. She dropped approximately 20 pounds and that was her only diet/exercise difference. The doctor said it was because she drank SO much soda and she stopped, she lost that weight very quickly. I'm curious as to if anyone thinks that might be a similar situation for me. As in, I stopped my MD habit cold-turkey and I wondered if it's not that I'm not gaining weight, but that I lost weight from that, but gained from eating and am therefore staying somewhat the same... Is that even possible? Haha.
Anyone else experience weight gain issues???
