10 lbs - GRRRR
I talked to someone today and told her that I have gained 10 lbs to date (she asked). She responded with "that is SOOOO much weight!". It really upset me:(. As someone who has struggled with weight my entire life, I was terrified that I was going to be as big as a moose when I got pregnant. At this point I am right on track, or even on the low end for weight gain. Studies say that if you are a normal weight when you get pregnant, you should gain 25-35 lbs, overweight 15-25 lbs. Given that I was a little overweight when I got pregnant (via BMI) I figure that I am right on track and should gain between 20-30lbs. Regardless, I am by no means porking out or packing on the lbs. Most people are still shocked when I tell them I am pregnant.
