did you gain alot of weight during the pregnancy (it doesnt look it!) also what things did you crave alot and did you give in or stay more healthy?
I gained exactly 30 lbs. The average is somewhere between 25-30 lbs, but everyone is different, each pregnancy is different, and babies aren’t all the same size. Everyone says I only gained weight in my stomach, but that doesn’t stop me from feeling like a big lug….especially when I have to heave-ho myself out of bed everytime I have to pee at night.
As for food cravings…they didn’t exist. Like I said, every pregnancy manifests itself differently. Some people wake up in the middle of night and just NEED a quart of ice cream. I just didn’t. I ate when I was hungry, and I ate a lot of great food! Just nothing out of the ordinary.
