Being pregnant would mean you will have to face the inevitable weight gain. It can be ok for some of us, but it can also be a horror to most of us, maklumlah we ladies ni sensitive skit bab tembam-bam-bum.
When I first got pregnant with Miya, my average weight was about 39-41kg. But by the end of the 1st trimester, my weight dropped to 36kg due to super bad morning sickness.. Memang rupa super skinny tak macam orang preggy pun. Alhamdulillah by the end of that pregnancy, my weight manage to reach up to 48kg (pretty happy about this coz I have never ever ever reach such weight in my life. this is indeed a new record for me) and within the week after birth, berat turun down to 44kg. Then in no time, thanks to breastfeeding, I got my normal weight back (eventho I still makan macam orang bela hantu).
For this 2nd pregnancy, I am not sure on how much I weigh during early pregnancy, but by the end of 1st trimester (after ramadhan yang I berjaya puasa penuh sebulan) my weight was only 38kg. Later, a week after I jump on the scale, my mama came to visit & stayed for almost 2months........ and when she left, I weigh myself again. To my surprise, I've gained 8kg. Fuiyoo!! Kagum kan? I guess hati I happy with my mama around (Bukan I sorang aje naik berat ok. Miya pun gained almost 2kg. Huhuhuhu.....)
Anyway, what concerns me now is how much is a healthy weight gain during pregnancy? Now bila I see myself in the mirror, I see this fluffy tembam woman. I feel fat!!
Tapikan.... when I asked the midwife, doctor and people around me, none said I'm fat. They said I look pretty healthy & fit for a preggo. Erk? Ye ke?
With me feeling all "fluffy" on every part of my body, I'm worried on:
- what if the baby is too big and might cause complication to petite me? or
- what if I go big and cause complication for the baby?
- what if it will be hard for me to get my body back after baby? HORROR!!
So I did my research and found this video:
Then I found this cool tool called Pregnancy Weight Gain Calculator at babycenter.com.au and found that the healthy weight for me to gain during pregnancy is within 11.3 kgs - 15.9 kgs.
How's you experience on pregnancy weight gain?
