My BMI is 29. And I found out I was pregnant just over a week ago now (I’m approx 6weeks) and all I can think about is how overweight I am. I haven’t been ‘eating for two’ & I've been exercising and have lost about 6lbs since New Year’s Day but I was away with friends this weekend and despite making 80% healthy choices I’ve put weight on.
I know I can’t restrict food in pregnancy and I won’t as I don’t want to harm the baby but all I can think about is how overweight I am, how uncomfortable I feel in my body & actually how bad I look. Which then makes me feel really bad as I should just feel grateful that I’m pregnant and that should be all I’m thinking about!
Anyone else felt even remotely like this?
