Pregnancy Flashback


This is me 3 weeks before my due date with my first. And yes, 70 pounds heavier than my pre-pregnancy weight at that time. I gained the last 10 pounds in the last week due to the severe swelling that accompanies toxemia, making it a total of 80 pounds gained by the end of my pregnancy at 38 weeks. I was induced early and ended up with a c-section. I'm so glad we induced, I think I would have burst (literally) if we waited any longer!

Because the weight was all water weight, I lost 55 pounds in 10 days after the birth. Yes, I pretty much lived in the bathroom for those 10 days. lol!

Here's to hoping I gain under 40 pounds this time around...
