So watching the news, and they had a report on how quickly Australians are becoming obese. The bottom screen said... Pregnant women to blame for obesity. They rekon women over indulge, therefore setting the baby up for obesity.
Although I didn't put on a huge amount of weight when I was pregnant, it made me very angry. As if we don't get judged enough on what we do... And so many worries in pregnancy, we all try so hard to do the right thing and to keep our babies safe and healthy. Doing all we can for them.
I worked full time up until 35 weeks, and then I had breathing issues and severe back pain (my job was a pretty active one). So I didn't add much extra weight up in that time. I also had hardly any appetite at all. Just wasn't hungry but forced down healthy food for the baby. That being said I'm sure I would have absolutely indulged a bit if I had cravings etc. :-P
And even if you do put on weight that's normal too! It isn't easy growing a person. It's so tiring, I wouldn't blame anyone for laying on the lounge for alot more than usual. Your energy levels plummet. Not to mention the aches and pains, and sleepless nights.
I think putting it on the shoulders of all pregnant women is wrong... That's a huge call!
Just needed to rant about that for a second. :-P
