First antenatal appointment today, was super excited until I got told I'm overweight.
Seriously, who tells a pregnant woman she is overweight?
Anyways, I'm not massive, yes I weigh more than I should but I'm not a big lady. I gained some extra weight earlier the year because I quit smoking - cold turkey during my planning of getting pregnant.
They requested that I go for an earlier glucose test, which is fair enough!
I'm just sitting here in my bedroom, crying like a 2 year old. I was excited, my first appointment at the hospital... I understand that why they monitor this stuff, but so far my research shows that a bit of extra weight doesn't cause massive issues, however you can be more prone to specific pregnancy problems and may be difficult to find bubs heart beat.
Well, midwife found mine quite easily today, literally the first spot on my belly without pressing hard or looking.
I eat extremely healthy, more so now than ever before, salads, fruit (in the right quantity) and lots of water.
I feel devastated, I feel fat already, I feel even worse about myself now and not feeling excited as I was.
Please tell me I'm not alone, I'm feeling extremely alone.
