Freaking flab! There is a nice flabby tire on my stomach all of a sudden. Not baby belly but flab, you know that you can grab. How is this possible. I can’t even eat food often and keep it down even less often. Maybe it is loss of muscle? Maybe it is here just to freak me the heck out? I need to get back to being active and eating good foods ASAP, weight gain is healthy when pregnant, but gaining weight because it is a massive hunk of flab is not healthy, ever. Surely some of you are thinking that I am over-thinking, worrying too much or am just plain old crazy. Just remember staying fit and staying healthy is better for baby and low birth weight, high blood pressure, premature birth, diabetes, preeclampsia and even maternal mortality are risks that are heightened if you are overweight and pregnant. I was already still a bit on the hefty side before hand. Overweight but no longer considered obese. So though I am told not to worry I really should. Just not over worry. That would be bad.
So I guess feeling crappy or not I should try to do something, even if it for a few minutes and simple. Some activity is far better than none and I need to start somewhere. And maybe I will get lucky and the doctor can help control this constant feeling of being sick.
Time to figure out a game plan because I am not going to get fat. I am just going to get huge in the matters of having a pregnant belly. There is a difference between the two.
See the difference?
