... what did you do differently? This is especially for those who gained a LOT of weight in their first pregs (over the recommended 12-15kgs).
With DD I was 74kgs at start (175cm tall) and stopped weighing myself when I got to 100kgs at about 36 weeks (had DD at 37+1). My gain was quite steady and within recommended ranges for first 2 tri, but then 3rd tri I became a fat-storing-and-eating-machine. My Ob was not concerned as he said being taller I will put on more than 'average' - however I feel that the extra fat (especially as I store on my tum) made my CS recovery harder, I was 90kgs when I got home from hospital. Also my body aparently doesn't like to lose weight when I BF (started coming off easily once I stopped at 8 months).
Soooo... my plan was to get super-healthy pre-preg next time around to give myself a bit more room to move. I got myself to 69kgs and super-fit, fell preg but sadly lost the bub at 9wks. Fast forward to now - and a LOT of emotional eating later - and I'm creeping up to 76kgs! So TTC but once I fall I need to do something different to prevent such a big weight gain.
With DD I was not eating all junk - just eating a LOT - especially towards the end. 6 weetbix for breakfast and then a second breakfast 2 hours later of 2 slices of toast, 2 'lunches', big dinner, dessert and SO much milk! 3rd tri I was getting through 1.5-2l a day (low fat but not skim). I was always starving!
So what did you change that worked next time? Especially how did you ignore/dampen the hunger?
PS. eggs/eggy foods (fritata etc) make me gag - so please no 'boiled eggs make a great snack'
