Approaching 32 weeks....

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

Well I can't believe I am totally on the downhill stretch now! My weight gain has been very steady. I'm still at a total of 6kg for the pregnancy. I will be so over the moon if I can manage to keep it at around 10kg.

The funniest thing that has happened over the past week or so is that I feel like I have fill in my band again. The baby is obviously pushing on my stomach. I am back to smaller portions otherwise I get terrible heartburn. It feels strange to have restrictions on the amount I can eat again. I have been careful as I don't want a slippage at this late stage.

On the band front I have decided to have a barium swallow after bubs is born to make sure everything is all okay before I have my first fill. I'm hoping my Dr will be okay with this, even though I haven't had any issues. I'd just like to be sure that all is fine before I start this weight loss journey again.

I have had huge changes in my work life. I have decided to close my small business and do some work from home. This will be a huge change to our lifestyle, but one that will be well worth it. I am looking forward to becoming a Mum and spending some time on health and fitness. I really want to get stuck in and get to goal.

I'll try and get a good pic of my bump.

6kgs - that's bloody fantastic. I wish I'd only put on 6kgs! You really are on the home stretch now! Hope all is well with mum & bubs :)

So great to hear from you again! You do realise that the baby and all of its affiliated support networks as well as your increased blood and body bits would weigh well over 6kg already??? So YOU"VE lost weight! Snaps to you girl! How very exciting love to see pics this is my first band baby (of all the bloggers and people i know with bands so keep us posted) I could barely eat at all by 32 weeks and I didnt have a band but my babies were kinda big and I'm kinda short = no room for food! Hello heartburn! Good luck my love enjoy the ride!
