The One with 182 Pounds


Monday, July 16, 2012

I probably wouldn't post these picture because they're so embarrassing, but I need to look back on them for future pregnancies:

Preggo with Fox: 7 weeks and 39 weeks
I started at 120 pounds and weighed 176 at the end. I gained 56 pounds.

Preggo with Jane: 6 weeks and 38 weeks
I started at 130 pounds and currently weigh 182. I've gained 52 pounds, but really 62 since I want to be back at 120.

Why oh why do I gain so much weight when I'm pregnant? I've honestly tried eating better this time. I've only made one batch of brownies instead of dozens and I've been chasing a toddler around the entire time. Hopefully I'll be able to lose the weight pretty fast like I was able to with Fox - but it wasn't easy! I was on Weight Watchers and exercised regularly. 

Here's to hoping breastfeeding is my best friend and that Lean Cuisine meals fill me up!

  1. Oh Paige! The joys of Pregnancy. Maybe it's just how your body is, you're so skinny all the time, you can gain a few pounds while pregnant and be ok :)

  3. Because you're pregnant! Your body is holding on to nutrients to be sure it can nourish your baby Jane even if you suddenly get hit by a famine!! You look beautiful and healthy. Don't worry, the weight will come off if you exercise some and eat healthy. And breastfeeding definitely helps!!

  4. you are crazy girl!! you look great, you are all baby, maybe it's extra amniotic fluid, that happened to me with my first, started at 150, was 220 at the end and when my water broke, I swear I lost 20 pounds...so much fluid! lol...can't wait to see little Jane on here. :)

  7. I think that your hair looks really pretty straightened! And the pounds will melt off while you are nursing.

  10. You look amazing!!! I think you are carrying differently with Jan than you did with Fox. I was 184 with both of my kids (although I DIDNT start at 120!!!) I have to say I have had to work harder after the 2nd one to get the weight off....slow but sure....

  11. You are such a beautiful mother. Slimming down after pregnancy is not easy, but we know you can do it. More before-and-afters!

  16. As soon as saw this title it made me laugh! Funny :) you really DO NOT look like you weigh 182. you look amazing. And I'm not just saying that to be nice girl. you really look great!
    with each of my pregnancies (4) I seem to keep on about an average of 10 lbs. BOO, thats quite alot from when we got married. We would like another baby and I'm scared of the weight! lol I always breastfeed but don't exercise....

  17. You are GLOWING. You're gorgeous. Don't even think twice of the #. I did exactly what you did & lost it FAST. You will too! BUT to me, you look like you have NOTHING but that sweet baby girl bump there!

  18. You look so pretty! And I love your top :) just remember it's just a number!

  19. I think you look great! I think also think that you gain because you are so naturally thin that your body is trying to give you a little more padding and nutrients for the baby. Honestly, I'd rather be naturally thin like you and gain some weight than be plus sized like me and not gain weight with pregnancies. You don't look big AT ALL, you just look all baby belly! :)

  20. I think you look WONDERFUL!
    Enjoy the last few days! Hugs, Karin

  21. i am absolutely floored that you've gained that much because your pictures do not tell the same story at all! i think you should have posted the before and have pictures and weights for fox and then just posted pictures for jane and had us guess the weights. you look super cute and you make me excited for a bigger bump!

  23. I was about 120 with Edward in the beginning and gained about the same as you. But the great thing about nursing was that all the pounds fell off!

  27. Oh, what a sweetheart! I just saw what you're hubby wrote. You'd better hang on to that one, girl! But I have to agree! Pregnancy may make us a bit miserable and depressed with all the weight gain and anticipation, but hang in there, it'll all be worth it soon enough. Sending you hugs! Run to the window and catch them!
