I was just cruising the net for overweight and preg and found this, Ive been on bubhub for a few months and never saw it before.
I am 16 weeks pregnant tomorrow. I am 26 (today actually! haha) and I weigh 131 kg and Im 179cm (5'9 ish). I weighed this before getting pregnant too.. havent put any weight on. I was scheduled for lap band in Sept and then all of a sudden I was pregnant! We ttc for 7 years but because of PCOS etc we didnt think it was going to happen... then BOOM!
I couldnt be happier but I do worry about my weight affecting my baby. I also worry about "not showing"... most of the girls in my due date thread are showing and have felt baby and I havent done either.. My 6 and 9 week scans were great, they were done v*ginally but my 12 week sucked. It was tummy scan and was all blurry and hard to see anything but I didnt want to ask for another v*ginal one. I really hope my 20 week scan is better. If it isnt I will ask for v*ginally, definently.. the pics were so much better.
My tummy seems to have expanded as my pants are tight but no weight gain so I assume it must be baby? I just want my tummy rolls to mold into one so I have the gorgeous baby belly and stop looking quite so fat.
So far the docs seem okay and havent said anything mean. I will be treated by a doctor the whole time, no midwives. I also start seeing doc every two weeks from 20 weeks and have a scan every 6 weeks. I get tested for GD next week.. I hope I dont have it.
I havent had time to read all the pages but plan on going back through them to read everyones story and see if I can learn some things!!
