On Becoming a Big, Fat Pig...

In one of my literature classes in college we had to do a project that involved selecting a book that had an "impact" on us. Then we basically had to tell the class why. I remember picking "Charlotte's Web" because, as I told the class, I identified with the main character - the loveable pig Wilbur.

It was a joke back then. But now that I'm pregnant I have this fear building inside me...that I'm going to gain a ton of weight and get in trouble with my doctor. Perhaps the fear of gaining weight actually stems from the knowledge that my diet has been crappy the last couple of weeks and soon I'm going to have to face the scale and possibly the music.

I know I'm supposed to eat all kinds of healthy things so the baby is healthy but what I really like is sweets, which I've always loved, but now it seems to be the easiest thing to reach for. I was riding pretty high, that I'd come this far without gaining a pound, but I fear the baby's calorie burn will soon no longer be able to keep up with the calories I'm putting in there, and soon they will be showing up at weigh in time. Perhaps that would be a good new years resolution...try not to become too big of a big fat pig!!

What the baby wants the baby gets. If that is a bowl of ice cream covered in crumbled up snickers, then so be it!

Don't worry!! I was in the situation no to long ago. The baby takes all thehealthy parts of what you put in your mouth! If you gain 20 - 30 pounds in the next few months you will lose about 19 "baby" pounds at birth so that would leave you with 1 - 10 pound of "you" to lose!

Eat as you wish!

Hmm, so what is my excuse, as I have no baby, but lots of baby weight?
