Pregnant - Nursing - Hooray, I've met my weight gain goal!

I just wanted to shout :carrot:

I am officially 161.4lbs today! At 5'5... and 39+2 (due Oct 29th). I officially gained 28lbs in this pregnancy.

This was a real worry of mine, to keep a normal gain. I gained 40lbs with my first and had a large baby/shoulder dystocia delivery.

I admit, it was a lot easier with a toddler than without :o Is that because I wasn't allowed to just go out for lunch & dinner & movies whenever the heck I wanted like a childless woman before??? LOL :D

Thank you girls for all your support during this pregnancy!

Now, get this darn baby out. I don't want to miss taking my 2 year old trick or treating!!! If I have to do it limping with a 2 day old in a sling, I'll do it! But I don't want to be in labour that night!!

And I can't believe I started my weight loss journey in 2003 at 163lbs, almost the same size, except soooo NOT pregnant and being only 19 years old LOL

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! You are My Hero! I am hoping to be in your shoes in 10-12 months! I have been maintaining at my goal weight for 2 months so far, after 1 more month of staying steady we are going to TTC#2 and I want to make sure I keep a healthy weight gain throughout. What a lucky little peanut to have such a healthy mommy!
