I wear a size 22.  18 and a half weeks pregnant and haven't gained yet, which is awesome for all those people who keep telling me NOT to gain anything, including my doctors, my family, and myself.  I don't want to have more weight to worry about... With all the complications that can arise from being obese (source HERE) can seriously complicate pregnancy.   It's easy to feel isolated and scared especially when you're pregnant.  It's the perfect time to find support and learn.  I found I am not alone and there's resources and answers for mommas that are bigger like me!  I have came across these helpful links and wanted to share. Please let me know if you think I should add more resources. 

So what's my plan?  What am I going to do?  I am going to do what is best for me and baby.  Keep eating healthy whole foods, find peace and keep stress free as much as possible, connect with positive individuals,  and let others know I understand.  
I need to get over my fear of being photographed, because it would be fun to see this huge belly again someday down the road and remember all I have been thru.  
I need to come up with a exercise agenda I enjoy and make it a religious obligation.  I have been thinking of buying a bike and going trailing with the kids.
I wouldn't mind joining Weight Watchers.  

I would love to hear from others who have had experiences with this subject.  You can email me at or FIND ME ON FACEBOOK!

  1. I was a size 22 pre-pregnancy and now, at 18 weeks, am still a size 22 (or 1X maternity pants depending on the day). I also have not gained any weight but have been really nervous about my interactions with medical professionals. So far, my midwives and OBs have been great! I eat the same healthy foods I did before I was pregnant, just in smaller but more frequent quantities (to avoid heartburn if I can). Walking is my friend and I'm learning that pictures need to be too. I'd love to hear your progress!
