My weight gain was very good for a while. I gained like 10 pounds over the first 18 weeks of pregnancy. And then another 8 in the following 6 weeks – as my appetite spiked (as well as the baby’s growth accelerated – he’s now growing and gaining fat). I am only 24 weeks and +18 pounds already.
I am getting concerned about the weight gain. And, to be quite honest, I am not as hungry any longer, but I don’t seem to be able to stop eating. It’s like a habit. Huge lunch, then a huge apple, then a huge peach, then a small snack when I get home, then a supper when my hubby comes home, then maybe another peach… I eat all the time – without being hungry. Which is bad.
Today, I came home and drank a cup of tea with a few pieces of cheese. And then ate a peach later. And I am fine. I don’t need a supper. The big lunch with the fruits that follow it is enough. The baby is big enough now to leave little space for food. I feel unpleasantly full from all this eating.
That’s it, I gotta stop eating when I am not hungry. Or I will gain too much weight – and the baby will be huge – and I will require c-section. Or I will develop gestational diabetes. Or high blood pressure.
Down with food!
