For those of you that have been pregnant you know that pregnancies come with a lot of highs and lows. Today is a low day for me. I recently had a doctor's appointment where the doctor basically told me I'm fat. Yeah, that was fun. I gained 7 pounds in 5 weeks which is apparently way too much. I'm so frustrated.
There have been so many cravings that I could have given into but never did because I am so weight conscious. We don't eat out very often and I try to plan my meals for the day so that I get all the nutrients I need. The doctor told me the foods I'm eating are too high in calories like peanut butter and jelly for lunch once or twice a week. When I told her that for snack I have granola and a banana she told me that I shouldn't be eating both of those for a snack that they both have a lot of calories. Okay, great! Thanks for telling me what I'm NOT supposed to be doing, then WHAT IS IT I SHOULD BE DOING???? I'll admit I don't exercise like I should so I suppose that should change, it's just so hard because I come home from working with 36 kids all day and the last thing I want to do is exercise!
It's such a frustrating battle. I honestly felt like I was doing good. I can still wear some of my regular clothes and when I buy maternity clothes I'm still fitting in a size 2 with room to grow, even in the "non-pregnant" areas of my body. I guess it's time to get out a pencil and paper and figure out what I should be eating for every meal and snack every day. Like I have time for this. Any tips mommies out there?
