underweight

Well, for being 6 months pregnant, I am still underweight and while not too concerning yet, my doctor wants me to gain 2 lbs. in 2 weeks. Seems easy, right? Not for someone like me! It's going to be a huge struggle. I'm not hungry which is weird because when I was pregnant with my little Goose, I was starving all the time. And now, at each meal, I stomach about half a portion before I feel full.

So now I just have to make it my mission each day to eat enough calories to make a difference. I'm even going to add those Ensure drinks to my diet to help add something.

Baby probably won't hurt from my underweight-edness, but my body will suffer....especially after the birth and will create a challenge for breastfeeding and just my well-being so it's pretty important that I get healthy!

  1. I will be praying that you can add the weight you need. I enjoy keeping up with you and your family. It seems like only yesterday that you were a little toddler sleeping on our couch in Chatsworth. You were probably "Goose's" age.
    Love you!
