I think the scale lied

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.


  1. I think you look fabulous! And yay for big boobs :-) I can't wait for that part hehe. You are a beautiful, glowing lady.

  2. I want bigger boobs. I know my husband sure would love it, too. :) I think scales are always wrong, especially when it says I weigh more than I'm willing to accept :)

  3. You're kind of perty... Can't wait to see you tonight!

  4. The scale was totally wrong! You hardly look bigger at all - you look fab! :)

  5. I think you look awesome! We seem to be built pretty similarly actually!

    1. Annnd.. that sounded cocky. Not what I meant. :)

    2. Haha, I totally knew what you meant, but your reply made me laugh!
