Weight Gain

The doctor told me today that I've gained "a little too much weight." I already knew that before I got on the scale and it was then verified when I got on the scale. Yes, I am 8 months pregnant, but it still depressed me! In my house we don't own a scale and we never will because I try not to judge my worth by numbers that don't mean much anyways. I've hated having to be weighed every month and then having it commented on by the doctor (even though I know that they're just trying to help). Anyways, I've decided that I'm going to take a big step within the next week to help me try to love and respect my body despite my weight gain: take a picture of myself! I haven't taken a picture in almost three months because I've been unhappy with how I look. But I need to love and embrace my pregnant self too!

Stephanie I think pregnant women are so amazingly beautiful! Even if they have gain a little too much weight. Plus I am convinced that doctors are paid to say that!

No worries you will have your body back soon enough!
