I have gained just slightly over 10lbs this whole pregnancy.. The first trimester and wll into the second I didnt have much of an appetite, but then one day..BAM appetite with a vengeance! The time before my last dr. Appointment (2ish weeks ago just before TG) I had only gained 1.2 lbs despite eating like a horse ( plus I work in a restaurant- my coworkers feed me like im some sort of freak show)...anyways this prompted her to get me in for an ultra sound that day to make sure baby was growing ok (he is measuring great BTW!and heartilly kicking me all over my insides, little brat:))..she then told me to eat whatever I wanted... And I have been! If I want something I do not hesitate to eat it...At my appointment yesterday I was dismayed to have gained only 2/10s of a pound (evidently I am losing while baby is gaining??) and the doctor is now telling me to eat more ( but she isnt concerned because baby is FINE)..
OK I know I am in a very lucky few that this happens to as most women gain alot more in pregnancy...but I have never ever ever had an issue with gaining weight.. so wth??
ANY WAY, beyond all of my ramblings, what are some healthy ways to gain some weight?? As I said I eat what I want when I want it (mcD's ect) but I also make sure im getting enought veggies and fruit and quality protien in there as well ( to ward off constipation and other things- TMI sorry)..
Anybody else have this issue while pregnant? And what did you do? Really any advice would be appreciated:)
