Remember this post, the one where I told you my doc lectured me on weight gain? That was at my 23 week appointment.
At 23 weeks and 6 days I went to the ER and I weighed 10 pounds less on their scale. I figured that might have been a fluke since it was a different scale and it was the morning so I decided my docs scale was probably right.
When I went in for my 25 week post bed rest check up I weighed 12 lbs less on the exact same scale at the exact same time of day.
This means one of two things, I magically lost a lot of weight in 2 weeks, or I didn’t gain any weight in 7 weeks. Either scenario makes me very happy.
It confirms that I’m not going crazy and seeing some other skinny person in the mirror. It also makes me realize I shouldn’t be afraid of the scale, I should have been weighing myself at home from the start so that it was consistent and so I didn’t stress myself out over one bogus weigh in.
Looking at total weight numbers I am 34 pounds heavier than my ideal weight, but I didn’t start this pregnancy at my ideal weight, I started a good 15 pounds of IVF meds and depression heavier.
*Also for the record I think at least 10 of those pounds are in my freakishly gigantic boobs.*
Now, for your viewing pleasure, picture proof that I haven’t really lost 12 lbs in the last two weeks.
