Quoting Robin Lynn:" Yeah, I am ALL baby. My cousin has an 8 yr old so I go to her for advice now, she saw me last weekend ... [snip!] ... begun to give me grief about how I shouldn't gain too much because they don't want me getting fatter...good support system, eh?"
I definitely think that is a great support system...not! Pregnancy is beautiful, and it makes me so sick when I hear people telling women don't gain to much, I mean hell it's not like we are trying to gain 100 pounds or something. I mean as long as you stay at the 40 pound limit you should be ok, I mean heck I have gained so far I was 112 went to 108 and now I am 134, and I lost weight too. I don't think you will have to much to worry about, and just try to stay as active as you can! And screw the whole outer appearance you are going to gain weight most likely and if they don't like you because you gained weight that does not sound like people I would want to be around jmo. I think you shouldn't have to stress over something so small. You have years after he/she gets here to lose the weight ya know? I mean good luck!
