BABY UPDATE 8: On my 8th month
Two days ago marked the 8th month of my pregnancy. Yes, I’m almost there!
I’m lucky to not have any major pregnancy complication, but I’ve been having “growth spurts” (haha) lately. A pregnant woman should gain around 2-5 lbs per month, but I gained 10 lbs last November and this month…so that’s 10 lbs TWICE, plus the other 2-3 lbs monthly for the rest of the months. You do the math.
I read on pregnancy websites that the average weight gain during pregnancy is within 25-35 lbs…I already gained 31 lbs. So here’s a MENTAL NOTE FOR MYSELF — I should not gain anything more than 4 lbs until I deliver.
We’re hoping for normal delivery — and I’m still keeping my fingers crossed — but the OB warned me that if I won’t keep away from too much carbs, then I might be placed on the table for a CS. Now I should TRY HARDER to not gain anymore weight. So help me God.
