Re: Pregnancy Phobia
Well, I am 5'2". I was 135lbs when I got pregnant with my first. I went all the way up to 163lbs by the end and only went down to about 150lbs before I was pregnant with my second, then by the end of that pregnancy, I was 184 and went down to 170. I am now pregnant again and was very concerned about gaining weight again and inquired to my Dr. who said that as long as you are not under weight and taking your vitamines, your body will give up it's energy source (fat) to the baby. He said if I only gained ten lbs, it's great. Once you are pregnant, I don't think you will be scared, but facinated with another human being growing inside of you, or at least that how I felt. I lived to feal the next movement, it's a great bonding experience. As for sleep, I don't think anyone is comfortable after the sixth month, and maybe even the whole pregnancy, it goes with the territory. Even after the baby is born, your restful sleep is still compramised by that little bundle of joy, but those are the experiences that you always remember and I think actually look forward to for your subsequential pregnancies. I hope this helps please write us back and le us know when you're pregnant, how you feal, and when you first feal the baby move.
